Flannel. Overalls. Docs. The '90s renaissance is still going strong, and I am happy if it stays that way well into 2015 (and beyond). However, one thing not really making a comeback? Mix tapes. Sure, sure -- you can send your friends personalized Spotify playlists, but is it really the same as a lovingly made reel-to-reel TDK clear hard plastic cassette? Nah.
So, yeah. I'm not going to win this argument, but everyone can experience a semblance of the tape's former glory with these pouches that you can customize with your own message! (I made the one pictured envisioning a little Boyz II Men, Jodeci and K-Ci & JoJo.)
The pouches range in size from a small cosmetics bag ($27) to a wristlet ($53) to a mini clutch ($38). Whatever size you choose for yourself -- or a friend -- take some serious time to meditate on that label. It will live on into eternity.
