Look, if you were a kid of the 90’s then you get it. And if you were a kid of the 90’s then you probably don’t wanna see it again. UNLESS you are like me and think it is one of the GREATEST ideas ever. 🙂 Awwww yahhh! Say welcome back to the fanny pack! Last year sometime, it dawned on me as I was toting another crossbody purse across my chest so I could have my hands free and I thought, ugh! Enough of the divided strap splitting the girls up. Ladies, you know what I mean. You put that crossbody bag across your body and it cuts right in the middle of the girls no matter how small or big your crossbody purse is right?! Well, a wise woman told last year me when I was buying yet another new crossbody purse on sale, “you know if you just tighten the strap you can wear it around your waist like a fanny pack.” MIND BLOWN!
Many many years ago I splurged on a little black Coach crossbody purse that I used all of the time and it has now officially become a FANNY PACK! That’s right. Whether it’s a stroll around the ‘hood, a trip to Walt Disney World or to the Georgia Aquarium to see the new sea lion show (which ps. was AWESOME!)…I’m wearing my crossbody as a fanny pack. Yep! In fact, I have aquired many little crossbody bags over the years and I am turning them ALL into fanny packs. Why? Because it’s just a great idea. They just sit there at your waist, all comfortable, not bothering you, giving your hands lots of freedom. They never want to leave your side (although some would say they should-lol) but they are just good little bags. They are right there when you need them, ready to hold your phone, chapstick, wallet, whatever. Fanny packs are ready for anything! Huffington Post even wrote an article last year that said they are making a comeback! Awwww yahhhh! I’m telling you people, google “fanny packs come back.”
So laugh at me and judge away when you see me out but I will be sportin’ my fanny packs proudly because…I’m bringing fanny pack…yah!
WHO’S WITH ME??!!!
