17th Ave Street Style: Angel Sandersen


Angel Sandersen is unique and fashionable and she brings with her to 17th Avenue a flair and personality that the famous street is well known for. She describes her personal style as creative, chic and chameleon-like.

Winter can be a tough season for many reasons, and when it gets extra chilly and frigid out, it’s only made more difficult to remain fashionable and stylish out there. Sandersen clearly manages to pull it off by mixing beautiful colours, patterns and some seriously unique jewelry that she made herself. Her earrings are part of her own jewelry line, Angel Wings, and they add the perfect touch to her personal style. Sandersen knocks it out of the park and I’m just glad she’s out there making winter more colourful, bright and exciting.
