We love a good throwback. While sometimes we wonder to ourselves, "Did we really wear that?," other times, we remember that there are some fashion moments that truly define a decade. And that's exactly how we feel looking back at the bags from the early 2000s in all their monogrammed, brightly colored, buckle-embellished glory.

Many people who lived through the aughts remember needing that heart-decorated Dooney & Bourke or lusting after a Dior Saddle bag. But perhaps even better than the designs are the then-It girls who wore them: Lindsay Lohan, Mischa Barton, and Paris Hilton were the ones who really sold them for us. Take a read through the gallery and see all the styles we had to have, most of which are very much back in style.
