Day 45: Mirrey

A mirrey (myking- with no space between the words) is commonly a Young mexican man, who is of high class, or tries to look like he is of high class.

He always brags about the tons of money he or his family has, and his crazy adventures  and lifestyle, even if sometimes, a lot of them have no money.

Their dress code is always to have a shirt, two or three buttons undone, no matter if the weather is cold.

The mirrey lifestyle is  based on glamour, consumerism, excess (or a disproportionate aspiration towards it), and despotism, its people who is always trying to look high value compared to the rest of the population, in real life, or social media, no matter if they actually have high social status for real, or are only trying to look like it.

If it’s hard for you to imagine what a mirrey is, think of people like actor Roberto Palazuelos, or the singer Luis Miguel for real examples of Mirreyes, or watch those parody videos in youtube, “quiero ir al antro“, and “acapulco dreamers

Ex.

Desabrochate dos botones de la camisa vato, para que te veas como mirrey, y obtengas mas atención de las chicas / Undo two buttons of your shirt, so you look like a mirrey, and get more attention from the girls.
