Janelle Monae almost exclusively wears black and white. I mean, it might not even be “almost.” It might flat-out BE “exclusively.”

So this cape was the most awesome revelation. She still looks completely herself, but with this killer kick of crimson, perfect shoes, and perfect lipstick. I have never tried wearing a cape, but if I were to do it, I think I would like to start with that one. I would wear it everywhere: to the movies, to the pre-school pickup, to tee ball on Saturday mornings, to IKEA. And if that didn’t make me more fabulous by osmosis, there would be no hope for me whatsoever.

Yeah. Janelle feels me. She is skeptical of my chances, but she feels me.
