BETTY STEEZE

Feeling Myself : I'm Not Looking For A Man by Janine Ciccone

 We're late with this post, but here's our own photo series for the 'Feeling Myself' zine!

The shoot is in response to the small minded behavior that men spew at us in response to us living life the way we choose. You know when a guy gets rejected by a girl, there's the good chance of hateration to follow. We'll hear how we went out one night just to get a guy, we wore that dress for other guy's attention, the way we dance, how many drinks we have, even us taking selfies is only to get their attention. PLEASE! We're gonna go buy ourselves some chocolate, flowers, shoes, and diamonds FOR OURSELVES! We will wear skin tight dresses and take a million selfies for OURSELVES! We believe in doing us for us, not at all for them.

Style Spots + Leopard Steeze by Janine Ciccone

As a Betty, it's near impossible to pick only one answer as to why we love leopard print so much. There are all different elements for which we completely adore. The print is certainly classic, it will always be 'fierce', and you can't deny that it has graced so many of the greats across the world. I do believe that what could be the utmost FAB factor about the dear old print is the scope of its place in history is vast, ample, and tremendous. When you think of the extent from the early 20th century right to today, there's a ton of material to leave a lasting impression. Starting from the stunning elite that we simply gag over to the hot sassy-trashy housewives we love (i.e. the homegirl Peg Bundy) dearly. Leopard has truly been used in some remarkable ways, and we want to cast some shine on some of our favorites. For Style spots + Leopard Steeze we've compiled a photographic list of what keeps us inspired and what keeps us coming back to the enlivening #Leopard.
