School’s been in since forever, but it doesn’t mean we can’t take on the world looking too fresh to death. Whether first class or next gen, being the leading ladies of tomorrow means wearing your strength on your sleeve — a little bit rebel and a little bit bold. A world that fears and hates you? Please. Haters to the left and don’t look back.
Ugh, she’s so L.A. … or would be, if Jubilee wasn’t still mired in this long-sleeved vampiric nonsense. But that’s okay, she’s still the colour bomb spirit of my Gen X heart, and possibly also the basis for my fashion fever dreams.
A little bit of urban, a little bit of pop — a whole lot of paf with a pink umbrella. If possible, my hair is probably a little too bright for Jubilee. Ha.

Also known as: what Bria is wearing for race day. I’m headed off to the Preakness Stakes tomorrow. It’s the second jewel in the Triple Crown and is always a fun day at the horse race track. While the Kentucky Derby might get all the attention, the Preakness is also filled with plenty of fabulous hats and I wanted to bring my A-game this year. For style inspiration, I turned to one of my favourite rich and classy ladies: Monet St. Croix. She’s one of the few Marvel superheroes that I could feasibly see attending an event like this. Her X-Factor uniform served as a basis as did Monet herself. The black and red of the bespoke hat was my starting point because, well, FABULOUS HAT. From there, it was just a matter of debating between dresses and accessorizing.
Really, it’s all about the hat.
