We are going beyond street style here with exclusive, in-depth interviews with some impossibly cool and stylish peeps I am lucky enough to know. The very first featured Cool Kid is Erika Enriquez Mata (Miami, FL).
The epitome of cool, we met while working together at Hollister (she was a model and I was an assistant manager). She is quite the fashion plate and always looks expertly pulled together. Meet Erika.
Hi, creeper. Been a long time, lol. Even though you were a model associate at HCO, you also work in print modeling. What type of modeling work have you done?
I modeled for American and European companies but so far I've only done catalog/commercial modeling.
What do you love most about Miami/South Florida?
Being near the ocean and enjoying outdoor activities such as kayaking/canoeing/paddle boarding, camping and parasailing.
Classy and elegant but sometimes I like to switch things up and dress edgy.
Olivia Palermo, Alexa Chung and Emma Watson.
Where do you most love to shop?
ZARA, LOFT, Urban Outfitters and Free People.
I love Free People. What is the last fashion item you've purchased?
A two-piece swimsuit from Victoria's Secret PINK.
If you could get any luxury fashion item for the holidays, what would it be?
It would probably be a skull scarf from Alexander McQueen.
Where is the last place you've traveled to?
The last place I traveled to was my hometown Cebu, Philippines.
Indie music. Foster the People, Lykke Li and Empire of the Sun.
