Kickin’ It Old Skool

“I wore my sneakers but I’m not a sneak; My Adidas touch the sand of a foreign land; With mic in hand, I cold took command; My Adidas and me close as can be; We make a mean team, my Adidas and me” – My Adidas by Run-D.M.C

This look started with a bag – Aldo’s Tiezzo Midnight Crossbody bag to be exact.

I just finished wrapping a photo shoot inspired by late 70’s and 80’s fashion and needed a boom box for one of the looks. I searched everywhere [(local thrift stores, online, Facebook Marketplace, etc…) looking for one but found zilch (bummer…)]. After the photo shoot, I visited the mall to window shop for a bit. It was there I saw it sitting on the shelf at Aldo. I was in awe but disappointed I never thought to look here of all places for it. I mean, Aldo is one of my favorite stores! Ugh! How could I not?! Frustration aside, I bought it by convincing myself to schedule another shoot, but, this time, specifically inspired by early hip hop culture. And, that was settled.
