Ever since she can remember Mimi has loved flipping through fashion magazines to see what the latest trends in fashion are. When asked why she loves her glasses so much, this fashion forward diva explains, “I am not a handbag or shoe girl and so my glasses are my accessories.”
Name & Nickname: Mimi Diaz | Meems
Home base: Texas
Current occupation: Nanny & Graphic Design Student
I applied to become a style ambassador because: Ever since I was a little girl drawing my own interpretation of style, I have always marched to my own beat when it comes to fashion and style. I tend to be comfortably chic. Since ordering my very first pair of Coastal.com eyewear, I was a fan hook, line and sinker. I have and will always be a walking billboard for Coastal.com.
I chose this pair of glasses for my style ambassador starter kit because: The reason behind choosing the red Jimmy Choo 66 N3Q is because my favorite color is red, and I have a lot of different colors but have been on the search for a fantabulous red pair, until now.
My glasses collection consists of ___ pairs of frames: 7
My favorite fashion trend of the moment is: Geek chic (big glasses)
If I could be stuck in an elevator with anyone, it would be: Besides the obvious of having my handsome man next to me, I would have to say my number two person would have to be none only then Jennifer Lopez. Not only because she is Puerto Rican and from NY just like me but she is the epitome of fashion and being stylish to every little detail.
I would describe my personal style as: Comfortably chic
My go-to drink at Starbucks is: Not a coffee drinker at all, so I would have to say Chocolate Chai Tea yumskers!
Glasses are an amazing accessory because: I am not a handbag or shoe girl and so my glasses are my accessories.
The best way to organize a closet is: Color, texture, and sleeve length… very OCD.
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is: For me, I go for Retro-Wingtip… they are the A-line dress of glasses. I go for color, style, and comfort.
My current style muse is: My Mom, she has come a long way since the mom jeans era. She has been an inspiration to me in so many ways. As a pastor she is always in front of the camera and influential people, so I feel like if I can return the favor in any way including fashion, I will!!! Love you Mom.
My favorite online source for style inspiration is: Pinterest, I love creating, and making things my own!
Some favorite boutiques in my area are: Plato’s Closet, Banana Republic, Victoria’s Secret, and Papaya.
My favorite fashion blogger is: Cara Loren. Love her hair and makeup tips.
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colors, yay or nay? Big definite YAY, especially if it looks great on you!
Favorite city to go shopping is: New York all the way. It’s where I am from originally so I have to represent in my own back yard.
