Stylish Fanny Pack: Thumbs up or down?

Thursday, August 25, 2011

I thought my fanny-pack-wearing days were long over after tons of embarrassing fashion faux pas during the 90's era. But after seeing Hanneli bringing the once uncool style back with a bang, I'm kind of liking it. A stylish little fanny pack would be a perfect date-night accessory where you can store your red lipstick, perfume and a tiny mirror without the fuss of carring big tote bags around.

Darlings, what do you think about this stylish take on fanny packs? Thumbs up or down? xo

P.S: Fun fact: Did you know that in Ireland they are also called bum bags and in South Africa, moon bags?

Bonjour!
I totally say if you can pull it off as sophisticated as this, then absolutely thumbs up!
I love how elegant she is...and this particular fanny pack is just darling.

You know I really like them when I'm at a flea market or travelling but my 25 year old daughter almost faints if I even suggest it. Maybe if I get one of these stylish ones, hmmmm.

I thumbs up it, but it would not work on me since my torso is so short...but I love the examples you have here.

While these are definitely better than the originally fanny packs, I still think I'll have to pass! So funny, though!

These women are beautiful but I don't think I'd like to carry a fanny pack! It's too cliche of a lost-soccer-mom tourist or something! I don't know if I could get over the stereotype enough to appreciate the concept.

I love them
I picked one up last year and it is so great to use in a crowd.
You don't have to worry about it being left behind or messing with carrying.
they are so chic and wonderful compared to the days of gym sack material neon colors and zippers.
LOL

When it is as lovely and high quality as that, possibly .. still hesitant though..

dana @ wonder forest said...

bleh do not like. i tried to get with this style a few years ago when they also made a comeback (gucci, etc.) but just couldn't make it happen. i think they went away for a reason... now someone's trying to bring them back once again!
