I Love the 90s Friday: The 1st Night

Monica was so cute and sassy in the 90s. This video and song are heavily linked to a lot of high school memories. Flirting with Crabby, basketball, summer changing to fall, and fashion. I just HAD to have a white and khaki outfit after being influenced by this video. I think I was trying to find a khaki skirt and couldn't, so settled for some khaki capris and a white tank top. LAWD.



Homegirl at the 2:18 mark was trippin' though. Bish, do you hear the lyrics to the song? All hot and bothered being a hussy on somebody's couch. Where are your parents? Anyhoo, I thought it was a nice message for teenagers since this came out my sophomore year (I think) of high school. It didn't avoid the fact that there is temptation out there for girls, but firmly said "not now" with a cute little beat.

7 jewels of thought:

Wow, this reminds me of middle school O_o lol
I'm always surprised by how loaded with sexual innuendos my childhood songs are. Like that one Toni Braxton song "I often think of you inside of my private parts" or whatever she says. Yea, I KNEW ALL DEM SONGS

Chanel: Yes don't even get me started on Jodeci, Silk'nem.

InnyVinny: Put on some white and khaki and let's do a totally improvised dance routine with friends who conveniently know how to break dance.

Q: Girl I was never a khaki person (still ain't) but I was HUNTING to find me a khaki skirt, skort (LAWD), SOMETHING!

Anon: At least it wasn't assless chaps; Monica is such a positive influence.

KB: I'm sure yo little bad ass does remember it, my fellow No Limit Soldier. You know what I may have been 14, because I think this came out my sophomore year. *stifling sniggles* picturing your version of Monica's hairdo while everyone else is all Just For Me-ing it up.
