Gold and black. GOLD AND BLACK.

I’m going to see FKA twigs tonight so I thought I’d do my first #slowjam. I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve been walking around wearing this and thinking the entire time, “I look so good tonight! Goddamn godDAMN.” And that’s what a good outfit does. It makes you feel like you are the baddest bitch around. And if you feel like you are, then you walk like you are and you talk like you are and therefore you are!

People might say fashion doesn’t matter, what matters is how you look on the inside, and yeah, okay, that’s nice, but looking hot as hell never hurts. And “looking hot as hell” is subjective, angels. You do you and don’t give a fuck if other people think you don’t look as hot as you feel; they don’t have to get it and they don’t have to agree with you to have it remain a truth. Just remember this works both ways: if someone’s fashion includes long, tousled hair and A&F, respect that and see that hotness too. Let people own their chosen aesthetic and encourage their confidence shown while rocking it.

I started a fashion blog, if that’s your sort of thing. We accept submissions. From the About:

We started this blog because we believe fashion should be fun. It should make you feel amazing. We shouldn’t give a fuck what anyone thinks about what we do with our bodies and what we put on those bodies.
Full disclosure, we are not fashionistas, nor do we study fashion theory, or keep up with trends. If you’re interested in people talking critically and informatively about fashion and the industry, we suggest you check out Arabelle Sicardi and Julia Caron, two women writing about fashion in intelligent, thoughtful, critical ways. Also, if you know of more people who are doing this, please let us know so we can include them here! 
This blog is just a bunch of people who genuinely like fashion; people who think it’s fun, an adventure, a ritual, a habit that they can’t quit. 
All posts tagged “diet coke” are what we consider DAY WEAR or WORK WEAR. All posts tagged “slow jam” we consider NIGHT WEAR or FREAKUM WEAR.

To boldly go where all the space motif clothing is and then put it all on my body and then be the happiest woman in the Milky Way.
This is my new favourite outfit. My underwear was even a galaxy. I just need big space shoes to go with it and I’ll be set. Any suggestions?

I really like buying t-shirts. Especially ones with birds of prey, or big cats, like lions or tigers on them. However, I also like shirts like this. This 416 t-shirt from Fort Apparel is awesome. It’s like, yo, Toronto pride! And not just in that easy I-<3-T.O.-b/c-I-really-<3-N.Y. kinda way, but in a creative, dope design kinda way.
Do the kids still say dope? What are the hip words to describe things these days? My brother is 22, and he uses only gaming words. I ask him a question and he will answer with “rgr” or “neg”. But really, he’s 22 going on 47, he shouldn’t count at all. You should see how he dresses.
EDIT: I totally forgot to make a hoes in different area codes joke here. And this was the perfect moment. Goddamn. Sorry Luda.
