The average AME minister makes about $30,000 a year, that's why I chose to wear this custom Zac Posen dress that originally cost me about 10% of an average salary when I spoke at their convention. It's the little details like this that remind the little people that I'm far above them.

Isn't it amazing how I can spend money? It doesn't look like it, but this Alaia belt is $2,715. I usually only wear it with cheap brands like HM or Ann Taylor because I like the irony. I call it fashion slumming.

I figured that I owed Michael Kors a favor since he wrote out that big check to Barry's campaign at SJP's party. Didn't you see the article in the WaPo that designers need to donate to the campaign for me to wear them?
