GirlCove: What does personal style mean to you?
Mimi: Fashion is something you buy. Style is something you possess. It is creativity and confidence, and it is ever evolving. It’s taking risks, being authentic, and feeling confident.
GirlCove: How would you describe your style and how has it developed over the years?
Mimi: A mixture between golden girls and Rihanna. I’m also very much a product of my environment: so when I’m living down south, I gravitate more towards vibrant patterns and prints; when I’m up north in the city, I tend to pick up a more practical approach. I draw inspiration from my surroundings … As a thirty-something who is still riding the wave of self-discovery, I find myself reverting more and more back into the ‘Who Cares’ mentality of my youth. I don’t need to impress anyone. it’s exhausting. So instead, I channel that energy into what makes me feel good: dressing for myself & the freedom of expression that comes with it.
