When I started my musical career I was a maid, I used to clean houses. My parents—my mother was a proud janitor, my step-father who raised me like his very own worked at the post office and my father was a trash man. They all wore uniforms. And that’s why I stand here today in my black and white and I wear my uniform to honor them. This is a reminder that I have work to do, I have people to uplift, I have people to inspire. And today I wear my uniform proudly as a Covergirl. I want to be clear young girls, I didn’t have to change who I was to become a Covergirl, I didn’t have to become perfect because I’ve learned through my journey that perfection is the often the enemy of greatness. Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes other uncomfortable.

so if anyone wants to get me these… i won’t say no.
So recently I’ve been getting more into clothes. I tend to have a moment, once every few months, where I decide that I’m going to buy more clothes, look into fashion and diversify my wardrobe. This usually lasts about two days. Then I’m back to not giving a shit.
My usual outfits consist of nerdy/band t-shirts and jeans. Occasionally, if I’m feeling ambitious, I’ll wear a plaid button up and a tank top but usually I go with a t-shirt. People who are into fashion will often tell you that your clothes should reflect who you are. For me, what I like is who I am. When I wear my Sunnydale High t-shirt, or my Tegan and Sara shirt or my countless other fandom/music tees, I am telling the world what I like. I’m telling the world who I am. It’s always baffled me why fandom/band tees aren’t considered fashionable. If fashion is about showing your personality through clothes then my t-shirts say far more about me than anything you could find on a catwalk. However, I have been feeling a little bored of just t-shirts and jeans. I want some other options, something a bit different, something that’s still me but a little more unexpected. Fear not – I haven’t abandoned my t-shirts. My Battlestar Galactica replica tank top came today and it is hands down the best thing I own. I will always love my fandom tees but right now I’m looking for something new.
I suppose this is why I’ve never really realised quite how awful the fashion industry is until now. I’ve always surrounded myself in a cocoon of unisex t-shirts which pretty much always have my size, even if I have to go for a men’s size for the right fit. I’ve never really gone looking for anything else before, anything “fashionable”. I’ve always just assumed that clothes shops would be full of stuff I’d hate in unrealistically small sizes. Until now I hadn’t realised quite how true this was.
I kind of want to know the designer now, though. Also, kinda side-eying that Michelle’s curl twitter account lol
GQ must assume their readers can’t pay attention to anything unless there’s naked ladies frolicking about.
