“I’mma shine, I’mma make it
It ain’t nothing to it, to it, I’ll take it”
Imma Shine – Youngbloodz
So last weekend I went to a rather fabulous birthday party where the theme was “Don’t you know I’m Rihanna’s Spirit Animal” and the dress code was “White. Satin is encouraged and fur should be a definite”. Was it the most fabulous and hilarious invite I’d received? Hands down. Did it also get me panicking because I don’t own anything white aside from shirts and t-shirts and that wasn’t happening? I had a mini-internal freak out, then calmed myself because a wave of Rihanna mentality washed over me and I hauled a 5kg dress out of the wardrobe.
PETA, look away…I love fur. I completely respect people who rock the faux, do you boo, but I’m a real fur kind of bitch. If you want to do your research about it, you can get ethically-sourced fur, which all my pieces are. I’m not about to have a slam down over this controversial topic ’cause I know it’s a touchy one and you can think I’m Cruella de Vil all you want but if you have a problem with me wearing fur and you eat meat and you wear leather…you can’t discriminate which animals you care about, just ’cause cows aren’t cute. Anyway, now that most of you reading this hate me, let’s move on. Ive got this incredible blue Pimp-worthy fur coat that’s pretty much everything. It’s one of those things that you slip over your shoulders and me feel like a muthaf*ckin boss…or P-Diddy…or She-Diddy… It also makes me look tiny, all lost inside this glorious cobalt, fluffy, gangster cloud. Watch the Busta Rhymes “Touch It” video and tell me I don’t look like Lloyd Banks in that video.
Anyway, the bossy fur hung regally over my new Balmain X H&M dress which restricted my movement so much that I had to fall in order to sit down and I practically needed one of those buttons for the elderly when they fall and need assistance in order to get up again. But was it worth it? Well, look at it…of course it was!
