Christina Mendez: Fashion Diary

Christina Mendez in Lee Lee’s Valise

Last week, New York City was full of amazing fashion shows, presentations and events linked around NY Fashion Week, Fashion’s Night Out and the premiere of Shoe Week. I was blessed to be invited to some of the hottest events around the city and shared my reviews with the Venus Diva family. I received a lot of tweets and Instagram comments regarding my outfits so here’s a breakdown.

My “go to” item for the week was my new Fashion to Figure patent black clutch/purse. It was large enough to hold my business cards, lip gloss, blush brush, Mac powder, ATM, ID and camera. It was also so fashionable and looked great with everything.

I consider my style to be simple, stylish, chic, clean and versatile. I love accessories but try to keep that to a minimal. For me less is more. However, I LOVE patterns and bright colors. I am also obsessed with shoes. Preferably 5 ½ inch heels or higher. It’s ok to shop on a budget but when it comes to shoes I prefer to splurge a little. Mixing inexpensive items with expensive shoes are the “Christina Mendez Way”.

CHRISTINA MENDEZ SHOPPING TIP: For great shoes go to Many women buy amazing shoes for an event or as an experiment and then realize they don’t know how to walk in high heels. They will sell their amazing expensive shoes (new or barely used) for 50-75% off. Their lost is your gain.
