Drake Riots

Drake. Love him, but I'm mad at him. Wednesday, Talibobz and I decided to flee to the free concert being held by Paper Magazine featuring Drake. 10,000 were expected to show, but twice as many did. It was truly disgusting and impossible. The sea breeze was blocked by the massive amount of body heat that surrounded us at all times, and the only way to breathe fresh air was to aim your head up to the sky. Not to mention, Drake was clocking 2 hours tardy.

After making minimal progression into the gross crowd, two fights on opposite ends of the crowd broke out, causing everyone to have a domino affect on the innocent bystanders. Before you know it, water bottles full of liquid are being thrown up, down, all around in every direction and people starting to get way too hectic.

Needless to say, we pushed our way out of the crowd. After getting across the street, we looked back and saw metal chairs being thrown onto a sea of people. A RIOT over this! Ambulances on their way to the crowd, police letting everyone get into the subway for free just to get them out. I couldn't believe how low people stoop and ruin the opportunity to have a good night. Lesson learned- Never go to a free concert. Truly disappointing.

As far as Thank Me Later goes, I had higher expectations. I personally haven't really found a connection or vibe to it. I still stand by the opinion that Drake is amazingly talented in the music career, being a great lyricist, singer, and rapper. Haters- go home.

Fashion Flosting

Lately, Talibobz has verbalized something that I have known for a while. Dressing for work 4 or 5 days of the week is stressful. I've resorted to choosing my outfits the night before because I value my sleep time. Some people may agree when we say that fashion is an art. Therefore, if fashion is one of your arts of choice, you know that it takes extra thought and effort. But you're not bothered by it. You enjoy it.

Back home in LA, there are a lot of terms that have been created by my friends. Some words flow, some will never make sense, and some are remixed. A few years ago, a term for "heavy chilling" was "Flosting". It was viral in my group of friends, and then somehow faded out. I have chosen to revive the word, because I think it's great. It summarizes an adjective and verb, and rolls off of your tongue with minimal effort, as well as getting the point across.

The famous quote "Beauty is pain" is the truth. Many girls give up comfort for appearance. But we are okay with making the sacrifices. From cosmetic to clothing, we do what we've gotta do.

I've created my own dynamic to fashion. It's calling Fashion Flosting. You know when you're flosting in your fashion when you have pulled something together that is prime, but also extremely comfortable. You aren't bothered by one inch of that fit and you're rocking it. It's the outfit that you pulled together last minute, but that you could wear all day and all night.

There you have it. Fashion Flosting. You dig?
