A piece of the 90s that’s making a comeback: Backpack Purses

There are some items over the years that went out of style in most people’s minds, but definitely not mine.  The funny thing about time is that styles have a tendency to come back into fashion… just give it 10 or 20 years.

One example would be overalls… I’ve been wearing those since I was a child (though the “fit” has changed), and now they’re back in style and I seem a lot less crazy for my constant love.  And of course, today’s featured item that went out of style but is making a comeback is BACKPACK PURSES!

I believe it was in 2010, I bought a beautiful black leather Marc Jacobs backpack purse and people thought it was so odd.  Like yes it is a quality bag… but who uses backpacks for purses anymore?! I DO! And guess what, they’re back! And I’m so happy about it!  Below are some of my favorite backpack purses on the market today.  They can be dressed up or down and they’re just as convenient as you remember.
