It’s actually pretty insane to think about the fact that Keeping Up With The Kardashians has been on TV for more than a decade. Even weirder than that is the fact Kim Kardashian has been in the spotlight for even longer, partying with the likes of Paris Hilton.
And still, nothing beats the revelation that Kim and her now-husband Kanye West knew one another long before they actually ended up getting together and tying the knot; Saying that their romance was a long time coming is an understatement.
Even though we’ve seen Kimberly and her family since the early days of their show, it’s still shocking to look at some throwbacks every once in a while and see how the 1% used to live in the days before reaching their ultimate level of fame. That’s where Kim comes in. We can always count on the queen of selfies to post some good pictures, but sometimes, a good throwback gives us more than a new picture ever could, especially if it comes with a good story.
On Wednesday night, a fan tweeted out an old picture of Kim, saying that she’d love to see her bring back the Juicy Couture sweatsuits and that Louis Vuitton multicolor bag.
Apparently, Kim was feeling the same vibe the fan was, because she decided to retweet the iconic outfit moment to add a personal story.
The Kardashian sister wrote about the day this photo was taken, revealing that the picture was taken when she was on her way to a shoot to meet none other than Kanye West. Even more iconic and generally unknown: Kim met Kanye’s mother Donda, and this was the night that happened, too.
Kim K reminisced tweeting: “Fun Fact- in this pic I was on my way to meet Kanye for his Good Life performance for the MTV Awards. I didn’t really know him but his people called my people lol & I was a girl in the audience at the live performance in Vegas. I met his mom Donda this same night”
The nostalgia of this picture is what has everyone in awe, but the story that goes with it is even more special.
Kim did just buy some multi-colored LV bags for all the little girls in the Kardashian fam, so this throwback couldn’t have come at a better time.
Good Life came out in 2007, which makes this throwback and KimYe collab almost 12 years old! Talk about fate.
Check out what some fans had to say about this adorable anecdote…the consensus seems to be that we all want to bring back Juicy sweatsuits.
