Oh how I miss the days of old, when music actually did make you feel good, but also MADE SOME SENSE!! To pay homage to the reign of Bad Boy today's #ThrowbackThursday is dedicated to a fashion forward trend that popped up in the 90's (thanks to one of my fashion icons, and the stylist architect...Mrs. June Ambrose). You know what I'm talking about...the SHINY SUITS! You remember the Mo' Money Mo' Problems video when June styled Mase and Puffy (P. Diddy, Diddy, Sean Combs...whatever you want to call him) in the candy apple red metallic shiny suits.

|Mase with the shiny red sweatshirt...by the way, I had the hugest crush on him back in middle school lol|
|Biggie with the shiny red jacket (R.I.P)|
|The Lox....Jadakiss in the cinnamon colored shiny trench|
This innovative style almost didn't make the cut. In an interview with June Ambrose she said she showed the famed music video director Hype Williams her concept of the shiny suits and he absolutely loved it. But when she displayed the garment to Diddy he was NOT feeling it AT ALL!!!!!! She asked him simply to "trust" her and her gut feeling. And we see it paid off in the end.
The shiny suit has evolved into a much more sophisticated tailored piece than the over sized jumpsuits and two pieces of old.

Here is the Mo' Money Mo' Problem s video which launched this fashion phenomenon back in the 90s.
