Fat, Fly, and Outside

Greetings and salutations fellow fly Earthlings! As the warmest (and busiest travel) season of the year bears down upon North America, you may find yourself with a bounty of opportunities to lace up your sneakers or shimmy into your bathing suit. Throughout the course of my life, whether I met these possibilities with excitement or…

Simulation Theory on the Hollywood Broadwalk

Today’s MyXXFLY story-time begins with dreams of escaping the conveyor belt of conformity and a trip to Hollywood! No, not the star-studded, west coast, tinsel town, impersonator’s on the walk of fame, Rodeo Drive, Hollywood. The flourishing east coast, five o’clock somewhere, no fucks, Margaritaville, uber tan white people looking like brown roasted chickens, Hollywood. South Florida…

Political Horrorscope

This week on MyXXFLY we’re channeling spiritual guru Walter Mercado! The garments and accessories featured in this post are some of my absolute favorite thrift finds. (I mean, how the fuck else would I have acquired a velvet cape straight out of Ms. Patty‘s closet, and a sequined matador-worthy jacket, if not at a thrift store?) With these…

Welcome to Phase 3 MyXXFam! We’ve been churning out content non-stop for 40 weeks now and frankly, we’re exhausted. But since there’s no rest for the wicked, allow me to reintroduce myself.

Anthology Dos

Well friends, another chapter of fly thrifted outfits, body positive goodness, mental health, art, and politics has come to a close! Where does the time go? If you’ve recently joined MyXXFam this is the perfect reference sheet for our last 20 posts. But if you’ve got time to kill at the cubicle, on the toilet, on the couch,…

Art (R)Evolution

  Art: the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination… producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. Even the Oxford English Dictionary definition of art is word porn ain’t it? Art in modern times is often delegated to the realm of expertly curated museums and studios, and while these places are replete…

Fast Fashion, Personal Style, and the Power of the Thrift
