weekend distraction: Erykah Badu

On April 28, 2013 by theseventhsphinx

Given a choice between the demure and the bold, Erykah Badu routinely goes for the bold.

I aspire to this pattern.

Here is a woman who is not afraid of making a statement, and with such elegance and sass. She is, as her new single with Janelle Monae proclaims her, a Q.U.E.E.N.

I imagine that she, like myself, as Frost has it, holds with those who favor fire.

She has me thinking that I should absolutely experiment with turbans and wondering…how big can my hair get now? Big hair and short shorts….such a great summer look. Also, can’t wait to show you the wig I just got.
