Black Girl Club

Well it's obviously been a very long time since I've put anything up on MissRiot.com. Almost let the domain expire...(just kidding/not really) Any old way, some of y'all have been here through my first big cartel shop 5 years ago and I loved each and everyone of y'all for it.

Now, I launched my new bundle of joy GrandmaRoseCo.com. It's basically a shop for 4th wavey feminist merch. The item I'm most proud of is these "Black Girl Club" Varsity Bomber Jackets. They are everything I've ever wanted. The story behind these is that I really wanted to make something that reaffirms #blackgirlmagic. It can be so hard just trying to assert yourself as "good enough" when you're consistently pressing against adversity. Whether it's a lack of representation or erasure of your valid emotional being, it can be beyond frustrating to defend your personhood.

Here's my reminder that you are more than good enough.

Save $24 on the "Black Girl Club" jackets during the #ShopSmall Pre-order through Midnight 11/28

Best Albums Out of 2015

Tame Impala- Currents
This is self-explanatory and I'm coming for the juggular of anyone that says this wasn't a good look for Tame Impala. Currents was RAD AF. You want to challenge me on this? Fight me!

Father John Misty- I Love You, Honeybear

Seeing J. Tillman perform this live a couple of times really solidified the greatness of this album for me. However, I'm starting to wonder what this says about me as a person? Like, is my humor highbrow? 

Jamie XX- In Colour

This got major play the last 6 months of the year. If I could put a ringback tone on my phone like it was 2005, it would be "Girl." The beat just sounds like I'm chillin on baecation at The Parker in Palm Springs in the spa.

Honorable mentions
Panda Bear- "Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper"
Mew- "+-"
Years & Years "Communion"
Kurt Vile- "b'lieve i'm goin' down"
Vinyl Williams- "Into"

Anyway, this is all subjective. If there's something I should be listening to that falls under psych rock, lo-fi goodness let a sis know.

Velvet Motel Love

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of shooting the holiday lookbook for the Various Love Affairs 2015 holiday lookbook. The clothing is so lit. I got velvet bell bottoms on my bum and I'm feeling like a million trillion billion dollars.

View the complete lookbook here.

Also... Tame Impala for Album of the Year. Will also accept Jamie XX for album of the year. Sorry Omarion.

The Glow Up

I feel like a Sweet Potato Pie. A Patti LaBelle Sweet Potato pie, that's fresh out the oven. I'm claiming this as my glow up. It's definitely that glow up you get after eating 2 whole sweet potato pies 2 weeks before thanksgiving. 

Or the glow up you get after your friends tell you all your dating choices and lamp choices have been trash and you need to do better. (Apparently no one liked my neon green bunny lamp!)

Anyway it's obvious, I've been listening to nothing but Pond and Bobby Womack albums at this point but here's something I think you should be listening to:

Fall Carnival

Really going for that early 80s Little Darlings look at the LA County Fair. Still really bummed about losing that memory card. I had so many fun photos from the fair on there!

If you want to see how incredibly scared I was on the Disko ride or maybe the dance break that happened because the brass band there played Sly and the Family Stone, head over to my Facebook page. Make sure you give it a like while you're there.
