STYLE: Vintage Trend Spotter12:06 AM
Vintage Style Comeback
The Bucket Backpack
I remember being a 14 year old Sophomore in Brooklyn, taking my babysitting money and running down to the wholesale district in Manhattan to purchase my first red, leather drawstring backpack. A year later I donned the signature Moschino and a few more after that, Kanye West inspired me and I upgraded to the Canal Street special--- my very own Luis Vuitton signature monogram draw string back pack.
Since it is 2014, anything pre 1999 is now considered VINTAGE. Yes, that's right even if you ARE old (and young enough) to remember the exact trends throughout the 90's: Kurt Cobain's flannel shirts, Brandy's box braids or Lauryn Hill's block heels and neck chockers then you'll be keen on this trend that I am super happy about
coming back getting recognized, again. Because I actually STILL have some of my trendy back packs!
Bucket Back packs are definitely a 2014 trend worth watching, copping and sporting. When a trend makes it way back into mainstream, you can bank on detailed upgrades, so you can now re-live the cute and dainty days of Cher Horowitz, Moesha and Nina from Love Jones as you search through the many styles, labels and prices points for your 2014 Vintage Style Comeback. It'll also be a great alternative to a huge purse and scoliosis this spring!
Below are the luxury deets for the above line-up. Shared via
You don't need a swanky event to be "trendy" in this style, go to fashion show, the mall or work with this chic and practical accessory. Let's take a look at the transition of this 90's Vintage Trend:
Ms. LeBlanc & Friends in High School
