Polkadotorama

I meant to write about the Bahamadia* concert we went to on Thursday evening and the badass outfit I wore for the occasion (think studded shorts and power shoulders and leather-look leggings and silver chains, lots of them - I know, I know, "so last year", but so fucking what?), but fashion gods obvously had other plans for this post. My heart skipped a beat yesterday when I surfed over to The Glamourai to check the finalists of her Polkadotorama challenge and saw my photo up there! You can check out "The Fab Four" (I feel like a freaking superhero!) and vote for the one that appeals to you the most right here.

* Ms. Antonia Reed truly is one badass MC and I was totally surprised by her voice. It sounds so low-key, laid back, smooth and gentle, almost whispering on the records, but it's a whole different story live - it gets way more powerful, dominant and crazy confident! I went bonkers when she performed Chaos, her collabo with Talib Kweli from Rawkus Soundbombing II. I was totally obsessed with that track some years ago and I never would have thought I'd hear it live someday!
