A Moment with Kim: The Answer to M.I.A.'s 'Where Were You in '92' Query

Maybe you were not aware that nine year old Kim was pretty serious about BSC-inspired fashion.
Maybe you are a fool.

I posted this picture on my facebook a while back and one of my friends commented "do you wish you still had that skirt?". Damn straight I do! And check out that beaded fringe. It's all about the details, guys.

Shortly after this photo was taken (perhaps mere minutes!) I entered my awkward phase, which lasted approximately a decade.


I had the same style skirt that had the high waist with accompanying belt (a lot of times my mom favored the Palmetto's brand of walking shorts and skirts which came with free belts attached). Welcome to my first day of 6th grade outfit, complete with faux Dooney purse (ensemble was plum and hunter green).

I'm really tired of calling things 'fierce'... but I'm gonna need to use it one more time.

That was so me in 1992 too!

If I tilt my head and squint, I can almost see some foreign cities on that skirt.

Ah, the awkward phase. I think I'm still going through mine. :)

I LOVE this! How cute are you!

But the important thing is, did you have a famous cities skirt?

You need to pimp whatchuckwore! Piimmpp I tell you.

Also: FIERCE outfit. Claudia would've been jealous.

No offense, but I laughed my arse off when I saw this photo!

I so had a similar ruffled denim skirt and belt that I wore with a t-shirt decorated with colored rhinestones and sparkly puffy paint (remember puffy paint?)

Ah, the early 90's...

At least your awkward phase only lasted a decade. I'm still navigating the murky waters of my awkward phase - just ask my bangs; they have a mind of their own.

If you really wanted to be fierce, you should have rocked a pair of spandex shorts underneath that skirt. Ferosh!
