Many of you might have been just little girls back when the fanny pack made its debut in the 80’s. Then there were those of us who were old enough to actually HAVE one. Who remembers that? Not long ago I did a post on some shorts I think that will be making a comeback, too. You can see that HERE. Well, I will say, it wasn’t something I loved back then, BUT fancy those bad boys up, change up the name to “Belt Bags” as they’re called today, and I’ll give em a try! I mean, seriously, the name FANNY PACK isn’t that sexy, and my shoulders could use a little break. And do I really need a little makeup bag with 5 different shades of nude lips in my purse???
These aren’t your “tourist” bag type of
fanny packs belt bags. Forget the nylon, the screen printed promotional advertising logo type snap on bag. These are beautiful and stylish and simple and sleek, and let us be HANDS FREE!
So I just got a beautiful blush pink Elizabeth and James
fanny pack belt bag (I’m trying to retrain myself but the name fanny pack still sticks with me… I can’t help it!) I couldn’t resist, partly because of the color and gold hardware, and partly because I always DARE to be DIFFERENT! It’s something up and coming and I love to be a trend setter. So I said LET’S DO THIS!
They come in different shapes and sizes, but they’re meant to carry the absolute bare essentials. A bit of money, your lipstick, mints or gum, a car key. Depending on how big your phone is, that’s questionable. (wink!) It’s perfect for those little quick errands where you don’t need much with you, or just if you want to be hands free.
