[Urban Outfitters - Ecote Classic Canvas Backpack]

For a while now, my interest in backpacks have been increasing! I do like purses and bags, but sometimes backpacks seems more convenient. For example, when I have to bike miles to my friends' houses and deliver a few things to them, it's always inconvenient when all I have is a bag! The weight on one shoulder (while on a bike) really bothers me; or if I have a messenger bag, it always gets caught under my seat or beats against my bike.

But when I say I want a backpack, I don't mean the typical Jansport school backpack! Those actually bore me. I'd say most of my schoolmates sport those, and if not - these. I do prefer Northface over Jansport, though. I think it looks more "urban". But anyways, when I say I want a backpack, I don't mean those. I mean the backpacks as featured in this post! I like the foldover look, and I like how it's more buckles and buttons.

See by Chloe Winter 2010/2011

Can I just say that I really do enjoy the See by Chloe Winter 2010/2011 collection? There's something about it that I really like. I have to say, it makes me think of the new millennium. I don't know exactly what makes me think of the new millennium. Is it the colors that look like it comes out of the "bold" pack of Crayola markers (did anyone else have those aside from me?)? Is it the turtle necks? The chunky socks? I reminds me of old Teen Vogue magazines I used to take from my sister when she was still in college (she went to college the first few years of 2000, I can't remember which. I'm pretty sure it's from 2000-2004).

One of my favorite elements of this collection are the mustardy army green chunky socks. Worn with the heathery grey... I think it looks really nice. I also really like the turtle necks! Generally, I'm not a huge fan of turtle necks, but I really like (wow, I keep saying that) the second photo I posted up there. The pink looks great as well... and I usually think pinks like that are too tacky or scene queen 2005 (a la Audrey Kitching). All the coats in this collection are absolutely fab. Yeah, I said "fab."
