Red Lips Fashionista of the Week: Frances Martinez



Today’s Red Lips Fashionista of the week is Frances Martinez out of New York.


This Red Lips Fashionista, better known as the “Cigar Chaser,” is not a newbie to cigars in general. Frances is a veteran cigar smoker with so many roots to the origins of cigars. She is a hybrid, both Dominican and Puerto Rican. Therefore, she has a family history in the cigar relevance, as her family has always been smoking cigars, which intrigued her very early in age, but she was too young than to try. However, once she was of age and could try cigars, as she saw her grandmother and so many other family members enjoy for generation after generation in the Dominican. Frances knew that once she would be able to finally have and try a cigar, it would feel natural to her since she’s been introduced to cigars so very early on in life. When Frances starting smoking cigars, roughly 18 years ago, she instantly fell in love with them. She loved the beauty and craftsmanship of the cigars, as well as the essence of cigars.


When Frances first started smoking cigars, it was more of an experimental process. She was not as educated about cigars as she has become over the last eight years, but over time her passion for cigars has grown, which she really enjoys them, and she’s very knowledgeable.  Also, the more Frances became interactive with the latest social scenes in New York, it exposed her to the “Cigar Culture” and “Cigar Lifestyle.” She was for certain that smoking cigars were one of the most satisfying hobbies that she wanted to be a part of and not miss any of the action as it relates to cigars. Therefore, she decided to incorporate customize T-shirts and Ball Caps, to patronize her image and logo, which you can purchase directly through her on Instagram.


This Red Lips Fashionista, you can always find her wearing Ruby Red lipstick, her rounded Gucci shades, and definitely partaking in the grooviest parties, events, and social scenes in the New York area.


Frances has such a cool and great personality! She definitely has a New York type of vibe and presence about her. She’s always rocking a baseball cap that’s full of style and personality.  Frances truly reminds me of the old school days and era in New York that consisted of break dancing and Hip-Hop, the beginning stages of the culture that started in the Bronx and Brooklyn. Frances is a true New Yorker and of the Spanish Community that she represents, proudly!


Frances loves to travel and spend time with her family, which gives her a sense of accomplishment, as well as fulfillment!  She has a very vibrant soul and knows how to have a good time and let her hair down. Trying not to take life too seriously but allowing enough time for play and adventure.


Frances is a Scotch or Bourbon drinker and her cigar choices are limitless.


Frances is a really cool and down-to-earth Mamacita!
