WHY WE LOVE BILLIE & 25 NORTH
A true beach babe and sunshine connoisseur, Carroll, the beauty & brains behind fashion lifestyle blog 25 North sat down with us to talk #WhatsYourDharma and hopefully bring some of her sunny vibes back to our cold city.
As we are suckers for tropical climates and love vicariously living through beach-a-grams, Carroll's images aren't the only reason we admire the Bahama-New York City transplant.
Her eclectic style combination of beach and city chic is well curated, colorful with touches of neutrals and hints of our metropolitan staple hue - black.
Billie illustrates these two spectrums through the looking glass of sandy shorelines and city street lights. For us it's the unexpected coupling of two extremes; a metro-paradise of fashion and accessories.
Check out what Billie had to say about her responsibility and why eyewear for her is of uber importance.
Dharma: What is your Dharma, "responsibility or duty?"
Billie: I feel that my responsibility to the world, to my followers and myself is to be honest. Integrity is everything and for me that starts with honesty.
Dharma: Favorite Quote?
Billie: My favorite quote at this moment in my life: "I'm not sure what I'll do, but - well, I want to go places and see people. I want my mind to grow. I want to live where things happen on a big scale." - F. Scott Fitzgerald
Dharma: What is your most favorite thing about eyewear as an accessory or necessity (sunglass and/or glasses)?
Billie: What I love most about eyewear as an accessory is that I don't have to wear make up and still look pulled together. Not to mention I grew up in the Bahamas where shades aren't just a necessity they are a big part of your individual fashion statement.
Dharma: What pair of Dharma sunnies do you covet most?
Billie: Definitely the RAJA, I love the two-tone split frames as they give you tons of options to play around with styling wise. Plus with my split style personality they are the perfect sunshine accessory.
