The Babes of Brooklyn: An Education

My zip code has now changed. and along with it, all sense of what is right and good in the world.

I thought I was being fun and practical for wearing a thrifted, loose-fitting cotton dress to Fool's Gold's annual Day Off street fest. I didn't want anything restricting me from jumping for joy when Danny Brown's green Coolio-braids took the stage. Little did I know.. I would be surrounded by this:

As we are now all aware, I have much to learn from this burrow that just keeps strutting. Excuse me while I catch up.
