after seeing these, i had to post them. i used to make these! i was in junior high and me and one of my girl friends (heyyy yarnie) used to walk to k-mart, buy sequins and glue them on our keds. ok, they weren't keds. they were straight bo-bos. laverne and shirley's. no names. lol. don't hate.alice + olivia founder, stacey bendet, says: "i don't think i removed keds from my feet as a kid. i can't even count how many pairs i had. we decided to do a collaboration that would bring a little alice + olivia fun to the 2010 keds champion."
yeh, miss stacey might owe us a check. we did this first. lol. well i wouldn't do much with these, these days but they're still kinda cute, right? i mean if sequin slide-ons are your thing.

and half of yawl probably put the intro on your answering machine back in the day ... "leave your number and we'll get back to youuuuu" ... lol ... check it:

i remember when i couldn't stand this chick. but after watching her first season i couldn't help but to take mental notes on this super mom/super mogul. i respect her doing-it-my-way type of saavy. gotta love it.
back then, r&b guys with hip hop swags weren't ubiquitous like they are today. yeh, bbd was talking about big butts, smiles and clocking hoes. and don't forget smack it up, flip it, rub it down. (oh noooooooo ... )
furthermore, i don't think anyone saw the success of the group coming. new edition was hugely popular and frontmen ralph tresvant and johnny gill bounced in 1989 to do the solo thing. bbd ended up outshining both of their solo efforts. although yawl know sensitivity was my song.
so i had to make poison my throwback pick today. this song still gets people up off the wall and onto the dance floor. still. respect it.
but at only $99.95, these could make their way to my closet without a discount. right? right.
comes in blush and blue as seen above and black
