When is the last time you thought of a fannypack?
I mean, there was that hilarious and ridiculous song a few years back by the group "Fannypack;"


but besides that, it's been years right...

Then, all of the sudden I started seeing them again. Very rarely, and mostly on European-looking tourists traipsing through Times Square, but I was noticing them. Then, the other day I met a friend for a pedicure and a picnic in the park. On our way out she grabbed a fanny pack and snapped it on... And I was IN LOVE.  I had to have one.  Hers was from American Apparel, a company that I refuse to support. 

So, the search was on.  I knew I could turn to etsy, the site that never fails me.  And once again, I struck gold when I set my sights on this beauty from redbirdstyle:

And on moi!

the adorable pink interior:
The truth is, my purchase was met with some dissent from my girlfriends, though all the protests disappeared once they set eyes on this fabulous bag.  I wore it all weekend and let me tell you, never have I felt freer than when I'm handbag-less. Highly recommend.

Cute "bag". I refuse to call it a fanny pack.

All I can say is WOW about American Apparel. Just reading about it made me a bit sick.

I'm going to be honest...I didn't know where you were going with this post...but after seeing that lovely "fannypack", I completely agree. Its the point where I wouldn't even refer to it as a fanny pack. Its too cool. Loves it

you got it?! i remember seeing this very bag on another blog and thinking it was gorgeous. but i will have to disagree and say it's not a fanny, more like a waist bag or something. looks great on you.

It's so fabulous that it's actually beyond fabulous. And it will always be a fannypack to me!
