This is a fashion blog, so I'm not going to bog you down in the reasons why "we" don't acknowledge Christopher Columbus as a "hero". But as a HBCU grad who was raised by an HBCU grad, I am contractually obligated to comment on it in some way. Anyway, this outfit is also inspired in part by the Pimp C interview at the beginning of F*ckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt:
"The reason why we like this this jewelry and this diamonds and stuff, They don't understand is because we really from Africa, And that's where all this stuff come from And we originated from kings, you know what I'm saying So don't look down on the youngsters Because they wanna have shiny things It's in our genes, know what I'm saying We just don't all know our history so..."
Of course, start off with a Biggie Hat and pair with a leather DVF sweatshirt, TopShop joggers and Alexander McQueen combat boots. Add in the bling with a Micheal Kors gold chain and gold Milly clutch. Of course finish it off with Tom Ford lipstick (is it obvious I'm having a Jay-Z moment?) and Coco Chanel Nior perfume.
Enjoy your day off and go "discover" something.
