Picture it: Los Angeles, 2011. Pretty Little Liars is about halfway through its run; Gossip Girl, limping toward its final season. We were freshly captivated by The Vampire Diaries, three of the Twilight movies were out, and Khloe Kardashian looked like Khloe Kardashian. These were the teens’ collective choices, and a few people wore cute frocks and cute shoes to celebrate it.
