my uniform is simple: black, plaid, distressed denim, leather and gold accents.

my fave gold accent happens to be these gold headphones that were gifted from a friend. they are gold, noise canceling, comfortable and super badass. a music lover’s dream. and the best part, they’re gold.

i swear i was either a rapper or a 90’s dancehall deejay in a past life. i love gold.

but anyway, back to the uniform. this is my go to outfit for running errands on chilly days, and it perfectly expresses the woman i am becoming: making my own rules, no nonsense and sometimes a little rough around the edges.

so imagine my delight when i saw my fave, my inspiration, badass personified, BEYONCE, in the same uniform in one of her new videos ***flawless.

the entire attitude of the song declares “i am woman, and you will deal.” best part: the feature of one the most epic TED talks ever by the indomitable Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

i used say i wasn’t a feminist, but every part of these women’s creed is also mine. i suppose that with growing up in a developing country i have become well acquainted with the negative connotation associated with being a feminist. i was afraid that people would associate me with those negative attributes. but i am no longer afraid.

i concede; i am a feminist. this is my uniform.
