This is about a month overdue but hey, better late than never.
Before Teen Mom and other horrendous, extremely long running reality shows, MTV actually played music videos that exposed new music to people all over the world. Can you believe it? MTV ACTUALLY was music television. I remember the first time I saw Through The Wire. I was 12 years old and didn’t know how to pronounce Kanye (I said Cane.) I thought it was so cool how this guy had his jaw wired shut and made this phenomenal song – I was hooked. Twelve years later, I’m still obsessed. He has evolved into way more than just music. A lot of people like to discredit him because of his arrogant nature (I’m saying this extremely politely) but you can’t deny his talent. He’s a producer, a writer, a creator. If he toned it down, I’m sure people would like him. He doesn’t seem too bad… when he’s not twitter ranting or just ranting about ridiculous things in general.
Aside from music, Kanye has dabbled into fashion. I’m not a fan of his clothingline but I do like (love) Yeezys and I do really want (need) them. Will I ever have them? Probably not. I’m not paying $1,000 for a pair of $250 sneakers but they’re pretty sick. (If anyone wants to find me Moonrocks in a size 8 it would be greatly appreciated.)
He made his Yeezy Season 3 show a listening party for his new album, The Life of Pablo, and sold out Madison Square Garden. It was an amazing experience and he did not disappoint. Seeing all these fans there for the music (and fashion) was absolutely amazing. TLOP is a fantastic album. Yes, there are some controversial lyrics on there but it wouldn’t be a Kanye West album if there weren’t.
Overall, I had a great time. Great music, great vibes, couldn’t have asked for more. Actually no, I wish Kanye actually performed a couple songs. That’s the one thin I would’ve asked for.
Now to what I wore: I kept it simple by wearing a black turleneck, black high waisted jeans, a black wool coat, and broke up an otherwise all black outfit with taupe suede over the knee boots.
It was freezing outside but you can’t wear a puffer coat to a fashion show, let alone a hybrid Kanye West album listening party fashion presentation. I wore this Calvin Klein wool coat I got at Macy’s a few years ago. This coat is one of my favorites because the faux leather trim makes it special. Without it, it would just be another boring plain black coat.
Though there was barely any sun, I topped my outfit off with my favorite sunglasses.
Viola! Kanye ready.
