Where to begin?
A Tribe Called Quest was virtually a right of passage for me. They were the moment I fell in love with hip hop, and quite possibly started the journey to loving my quirks. Trying my hardest not to sound like “Brown Sugar”, I remember the first night I heard them. It was 98.7 kissfm; DJ Red Alert debuted the “Spread Love” remix of Bonita Applebaum. She was the first fictional female I wished I was.
People’s Instinctive travels and the Paths of RyhthmBright, summery, not overly sexualized. Bonita was the original sought after girl. Because we are now living in a day and age where you have to be on fleek 24/7, it’s nice to fall back for nostalgias sake and give you laid back cute.Top: Khol’s – $7

Sooo not norm core but 100% relaxed. ATCQ made you feel good about just being you. Telling Lucien they were compassionate to him “as is” did something for me as a teen fashion/ fit-in wise, and it stills rings true today.Tee Shirt: Target – $3
Print pants – $10 some street store off of St. Mark’s NYC
Sneakers: Superga Sneakers – $6 (yes $6! You want me to be your shopper)
