My day at Pride

So me and a few buddies went to pride yesterday and had the time of our lives. We hopped the barricades at 14th st and joined the parade in its extravagant entirety, shaking our groove thang behind the west indian themed float. "We gotta get on a float next year" was the only thought Dancing in my head as I jumped through 20 blocks of glitter and sweat in my 5 inch heels. I was 'round some bad bitches. And that's a compliment. The vibrant arrays of ethnicities, genders, shapes, sizes, tucked penis's, thongs, pierced nipples, flashed breasts, priests and glitter was tremendous. It was a smorgasbord of style and ferocity. I literally got a metaphorical hard on. I fell in love and better yet, burned about 3,000 calories AT LEAST. I felt so touched. And I'm not even talking about the time that gay guy felt me up.. Im not even talking about the time that lesbian felt me up! Which reminds me, I even went to my first lesbian bar and got hit on by a gorgeous blonde with red lipstick. She was a bombshell but ya know, im'a straighty. That being said i feel so full of pride and more than happy to support my gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, cross dresser, and beyond friends as they take the fierce and brave leap into the future where sexual, physical and emotional gender lines will be crossed on a regular basis and it will be considered taboo to NOT be open to the limitless possibilities and surreality of our physical and metaphysical existence. GAY OK. I love my people, ALL of my people. God bless. Bitchez. *3snaps*

Bangin' on a Budget

I know there are a lot of fashion blogs out there that teach you how to look good on a budget. Well there "budget" is usually still way more than a starving artist/burgeoning fashionista such as myself can afford. I have unique taste and I need unique clothes in order to express myself to the fullest. I often find that I hardly shop-who woulda thunk it- unless I have a gross excess of money but recently I had an epiphany. Why can't I shop ALL THE TIME?!?! That's when the idea hit me. If I spent $25 a week on clothes and accessories that could be completely affordable as well as fashion forward for my closet of reusable items. And then "Bangin' on a Budget" was birthed. Every week I'll provide the details of an outfit/items/accessories that I bought for $25. I'll tell you where I went, how much each item was and then how I incorporated it all into my own very unique wardrobe. If you're wondering about my fashion sense, my favorite fabrics are sequins, lace, spandex and jean. I love gold and Anything acid washed. I love bold colors and patterns but I try not to look like a bag of skittles. I dig Jeremy Scott Adidas, Nike dunks and Jeffrey Campbell heels. I only where labels on my feet. Every one else can go to hell. If I get some bangin' shoes on a budget-you'll definitely hear about it!

If you think your style might be similar to mine or you think it's time for a change and you're looking for some inspiration come on this ridiculously cheap journey with me and share how you get bangin' pieces for incredibly low prices. And just so you know, this won't be strictly thrift shops. Take my first outfit for example, I got this at Forever 21 in times square. The top was $15 and the skirt was $10. The skirt also comes in bright orange and lime green! Then I mixed and matched it with accessories from home! So fun and the pieces are so versatile. Ill also incorporate a few different looks with the same pieces so you can continuously reinvent your look without ever leaving your closet.

Stay tuned
