We haven't considered wearing a backpack as a fashion statement since Dionne in Clueless, but since we've been fashion traveling to the 90's lately, we find ourselves pondering them once again. We know what the backpack means to many - Little kids, fifth grade field trips to Six Flags, 90210; you get the drift. But we've been thinking they'd be kind of cute on the right person, as part of the right spring ensemble. Couldn't you see a slouchy black patent version in place of the standard clutch? And bonus - we could actually bring more than just a credit card and lip gloss at night. Kanye West proclaimed himself the first guy "with a Benz and a backpack," (and we could totally see one hanging off Chloe Sevigny's arm, though we're not sure if that's a good thing for us), and a friend of ours recently bought a red and black buffalo plaid backpack to sport around the city. Maybe not the teddy bear sac we handed down to our little cousin, and not quite the Louis Vuitton minis of Canal Street, but something in between could miraculously work...? Though we're still not completely sold on the look, backpacks are more practical than lugging around a hardware cluttered Marc Jacobs - and there is that whole thing about looking good if you feel good, right? So what do you think - to two strap? Or not to two strap? --JAZZI McGILBERT
