Hey y'all, first, I'd like to say I feel so blessed to be guest-writing on the Cut today. Blogging isn't how I usually spend my Friday afternoons, but I finished doing yoga and polishing my gloves for the day, so I don't really have anything else to do. Also, I don't know what Twitter is. I just wanted to say that I worked so hard for everything I have. It's been a long journey to the top and sometimes a girl has to stop along the way to pamper herself with a shopping trip. So I went to Pat Field and spent $11,000 the other day. Let me show you what I bought. I'd show my husband, Jay-Z, but he doesn't care. And I know my fans, for whom I am so, so thankful, will listen. To the song here in my heart. A melody I start.
Cheap-Chic Pleated Scarf - $50
I thought this would be nice for my upcoming tour. I keep showing Thierry Mugler, who's costuming me, my inspirations. Usually he just shoos me away.
Jeweled Cropped Bolero - $58
This will be lovely in the spring for when the Obamas want me to sing at a White House picnic. I have nice arms, too.
Stop Staring Katrina Dress - $242
I'd wear this to a daytime lunch by a woman's magazine honoring me for being generally excellent at things. Maybe Vogue, since I'm on their April cover. Andre Leon Talley already approved.
Pink Glitter Polly - $158
These are just too cute. I like a little sparkle.
Studded Half-glove in Black - $65
The metal gloves have started to rust on my hands, so I'm collecting backup options. The problem is many of them look too similar to what Rihanna wore. And I dress to be noticed, as my Oscar dress should have shown you.
Seven-inch Sequin Shorts - $60
Lady Gaga told me if I wear these, people will pay more attention to me.
Stirrup Pants by David Dalrymple - $120
I just think it's fantastic you can still buy stirrup pants.
Sparkly Sequin Visors - $22
These reminded me of something I would wear with Kelly and Michelle in Destiny's Child. I bought the multicolored one and two plain black ones to send to each of them.
David Dalrymple Stretch One-piece - $138
Now that it's spring, I wanted to have my favorite black jumpsuit in sleeveless.
Sequin Micromesh Dress - $224
This would be great for a night of sitting on a banquette at Butter. Or another night Jay makes me go out clubbing. Don't you think?
Cha-cha Boot - $18.75
These were on sale, but I would have bought them at full price for $75. Purple suede fringe just does things to me I can't explain.
Patent Leather Half-gloves - $65
To add to my glove collection.
Three-Petal Hat With Studs - $104
Rihanna wore an eye patch this one time and I was thinking maybe I should start wearing more sparkly things on my head.
Sparkle Star Earrings - $46
These are for next year's Oscars. To remind the Academy of what a star I am.
Animal Hats - $15
I bought these for Jay because the fur hat he wore to the inauguration takes up too much room in our suitcases.
The Glamour Robe - $88
I feel uncomfortable discussing my personal life.
Acrylic Bra With Crystals - $440
All I can say is that Jay and I are very happy together.
Rhinestone Dress - $1,320
This is great for a Vegas show. I'm hoping Thierry will make me a custom nude bodysuit to wear under it.
Lace Venus Dress - $120
I'd wear this to a movie premiere or an awards show that doesn't really matter, like the Grammys.
Disco Barbie Turtleneck Minidress - $230
I liked this so much I wore it out of the store. I think it's great for tea at the Waldorf. Plus, I was meeting Solange, and I knew this would be shinier than whatever she had on.
