You know those small backups that all the teenagers and even children used to carry around?
You know . . . they come in mostly black, sometimes leather, sometimes a big smiley face? You could see bubble shaped ones? There were ones so small you could only fit a sandwich in there.
Yeah those. They are called backpack purses. They have never really disappeared. You just don’t see them as a fashion staple anymore.
I was ten years old and everyone in my class brought along their tiny little backpacks to school excursions. I believe American schools call it field trips, and some of these road trips take a few days. We call those camps. When it’s a day trip we call it excursions.
So everyone owned one except me and a few uncool kids (we were the unspoilt ones). I literally whined to my mother until she bought me one and it was the greatest thing I could have ever have gotten that year. I never got any dolls or new toys I wanted, but when my mother saw me wanting a bag, and bags are useful, she made sure I had the best one.
That was of course, a long, long time ago.
Guess what, everybody? I’m bringing them back! I have a black backpack purse, my pale blue jean, plaid shirt, and doc martens! Wooo!
I’m a 90s walking disaster and I don’t care! I love it.
Alright. Honestly, The backpack purse, depending on the style, still looks dorky. Well I have accepted doc martens. Perhaps one day, I will carry around the backpack purse with pride.
Let me know if you have accepted any 90s fashion item into your daily wardrobe in the comments below.
