Who wouldn't want to transport to a time when your biggest worry was that you'd somehow end up living in a shack married to Screech from Saved By the Bell, all because your latest game of MASH said so? While we can't take a DeLorean to the past (yet), we can feel like we're 10 again with these fun, nostalgic accessories, upgraded for grown-ups with style.
For generations, girls have made friendship bracelets for each other as a symbol of a sacred bond that lasts forever—or at least until the raggedy thing crumbles off in the shower.
