Look out…I’m bringing THIS fashion trend back!


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!

File Apr 15, 10 47 21 AMMany 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.File Apr 15, 10 54 36 AM 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!

    Now I can definitely see using a crossover purse as a “fanny pack” but the ones that were back in the old days that we’re literally fanny packs that were small and not very fashionable are a no no for me. I work with a lady that is 10 years or so older than me and we work at a school. She wears that fanny pack every day! It is definitely not appealing at all. I’ll give the crossover one a try. I usually just carry a wallet that holds my phone with a strap on it but it would be nice to be able to carry some other stuff like makeup or lipstick. Thanks for the info but no you will not see me wearing one of the old fanny packs! Lol!

    Haha! I went to Disney this past Christmas with my 5 kids and I wore the “old-school for real fanny pack”!! I was the only one at all the parks who had one! My kids made fun of me and told me to please take it off. (I have 4 teenage daughters ranging in ages 20-14 and a 4 year old). I LOVED that I took my fanny pack, I could not have made it at Disney without it! Didn’t really care what I looked like!! But thanks for sharing, next time I will try the crossover! My kids will probably like that better! LOL P.S. Hope Mama Jane is feeling better! Prayers!!!

    Fanny packs seem more utilitarian than fashionable, but I’m not to judge.

    90210! I am so jealous! I had a neon green fanny pack when I was in the ninth grade. If I can find one cute enough (90210!) I will definitely get one.
