Semi-Funky Hip Hop Casz

When I was growing up, one of my favorite shows was Sister, Sister.  I loved their clothes and I couldn't wait to be in high school so I could be as fashionable as Tia and Tamera.  I mean, how could you not want to look like these chicas?
One of my best buddies Jimmy and I often recite one of our favorite lines from this show when discussing dress codes for upcoming events.  I remember a scene where Tia, Tamera, and their equally fashionable girlfriends were talking about what to wear to a party later that night, and one of the girls says "semi-funky hip hop casz".  What does that even mean?  I don't know, but I wanted to be it.  I am embarrassed to admit how long I have spent over the years trying to find a clip of this scene on youtube (if you can find it for me, I will seriously send you a gift card to your favorite store).  I mean, literally hours spent over the past few years trying every combination possible to find this scene.  
I digress
So here is my attempt at keeping it casual.  Boyfriend jeans, a soft tee, and a bright cardigan made for the perfect casual outfit.  It's starting to cool down here in Indiana, so I'm looking forward to breaking out my favorite jeans this fall.
Tee: Urban Outfitters
Jeans: Gap
Cardigan: Macy's
Shoes: xhiliration
Bag: Coach
Necklace: my mother's vintage 

Do you remember this tee?  I bought it for myself as a little birthday gift earlier this year on a trip to Vancouver, BC.  It is the softest tee I own, and therefore, the only one I'll ever wear in public.  Hope Tia and Tamera aren't disappointed in my hip hop funky casz look...

Do you follow In Kinsey's Closet on twitter?

UPDATE!  My fabulous reader K found the clip!  It's below in the comments!  K, send me your info and favorite store and a gift card will be on it's way to you!  THANK YOU!

OH MY GOSH! I used to have Teen Bop pics of those girls all over my room. Along with Roger. Every so often, I think of "I Will Never Lie" and it makes me miss dear Roger. Love the funky look. I think they would approve.

I had a denim hat with a flower just like Tia and Tamara. I was one stylish kid, or so I thought.
