NYC (AND BEYOND): CRUMPLED TWENTY

The Best Link Today:
So, Refinery listed their "Top 11" spring must-haves today and I obviously couldn't resist taking a peek.
Okay, I don't want to sound grandma or anything or like someone who fights progress, but some of the 80's stuff is getting a little intense for me. I feel like it's been slowly resurfacing for so long now and, while I actually really love the above floral full-pieces, round sunglasses (if you can pull them off), platforms and a good old denim jacket, I'm sort of afraid of these backpacks and slashed jeans.
Let's be honest though: we've all certainly said that before and later eaten our words. The 80's (and 90's, right? I mean, backpacks are full-on 90's!) stuff just feels like a pretty obvious translation of the past instead of an updated homage, but, then again, maybe I'm just mad cause I look squat in a jumpsuit.
But, seriously, who doesn't?
