    Playboy pencil cases forever.

    1. Back then, owning a Playboy pencil case seemed like the most important thing in the world.

    7. So you dressed in a denim miniskirt and Uggs every single day.

    8. And you pretended to be more stupid than you actually were in an effort to be more like Paris and Nicole on The Simple Life.

    9. Which is why you owned a New Look T-shirt with a joke about being blonde on it.

    10. The coolest thing about owning a Motorola Razr was being able to close it with your face in order to hang up.

    11. But really you wanted nothing more than to own a Murakami bag.

    16. You know it's a '00s cliché, but you legit couldn't live without your Jane Norman carrier.

    17. You wouldn't leave the house without perfume on, and your favourites were "Curious" by Britney, "Just Me" by Paris, and "Glow" by J.Lo.

    18. You queued outside Abercrombie to get a picture with one of their models.
