5. We went everrrrywhere in our maxi dresses.

6. It wasn't a party unless someone had on a pair of those Kanye shutter shades.

8. If you had any style, you owned at least one pair of gladiator sandals.

19. In 2008, our shoulders spent a lot of time out in the open.

20. We'll always have a special place in our hearts for enormous belts.

21. And you'd love to get that tasseled vest from the back of your closet again, wouldn't you?
