The 5′ 7 beauty resides in Texas, Arlington. Martin says she is surprised to be featured in a fashion blog, ” Wow I am honored to be featured in a blog. I never thought someone would actually notice my fashion sense. (LOL)… but I am very humble and excited,” she said.
As much as she is fashionably on point, academically she is also ambitious. Martin is currently attending school and studying in hopes of becoming a Neonatal nurse.
The 27-year-old Texan resident is commonly known as “Gigi” among her dearest friends. Gigi explains the relevance of fashion in her life, saying, ” Fashion means everything to me, I love clothes … without fashion, life sucks.”
Martin and I met up on chat on Facebook and we had a quick Q & A. Below is our fashion dialogue….
Which celebrity would you liken your fashion sense to?
Hmmm … I would say Beyonce and Ciara because I love their styles. In general I like that ” she is a model look” as well–it’s classy and fierce appearance.
What’s your favorite color?
To be honest I really don’t have a favorite color. I love colors that compliment my skin … lately I have been more into nude colors.
What’s your must-have item?
Which fashion trend/item should never come back? It should be buried away for good?
I cant really think of a trend that should never come back. I feel like fashion repeat itself and we just have to embrace it.
Which is your shopping weakness ( clothes, jewelry, shoes, bags, glasses, makeup or all)?
My weakness is shoes! I love them all! When I walk by a shoes store my heart melts! I have to get out with something … lol.
The Top 5 stores you often visit?
Forever21, H&M, Thrift Stores, Bakers, and Shasa.
What color are your nails right now?
They are dark green with sparkles.
Describe what you are wearing right now:
I am wearing black skinny jeans, spaghetti strap shirt and leopard flats: It’s I am-just-hanging around-the-house kind of look….
What is the one fashion item you need to get over it?
High waisted shorts. I love them like crazy!!! I think I am becoming obsessed with it, I love it too much. I feel sexy when I wear it and it also compliments my curves. Its time to get rid of it. I own one too many lol.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MixupFixup?
I love, love, love it … I think it’s very creative and rateable.
