When Fanny Packs Attack!

The other day, I was with my mom and grandmother at Macy's while they were exchanging a bag. While I was waiting for them, I wandered around and discovered an array of LeSportsac and Harajuku Lovers fanny packs.

While they looked fun and colorful, but I think the whole "tourist" stereotype will never be divorced from them. Plus, a lot of people would be hung up on the fact that they just attract more attention toward their waists.

Despite my doubts, I decided to give it a go anyway (bottom). While, yes, I didn't have to worry about losing my belongings, I still felt like I was toting around a first aid kit. I'm still undecided.

What do you think? Do you think that these little hip pouches pack and deliver like UPS trucks or just suck?

P.S. If these happen to be your thing, click here.

If you're really brave, sporting fanny packs shouldn't be much of a problem. I for one have way low self esteem to be able to wear one.

I was reading your previous posts, and just want to say that your writing is very fun and witty!

wendy, you know what? i think you're right about the self esteem element. anyone who is self-assured surely can pull anything off (ie. gwen stefani).

thanks for the compliment :] you are very kind!
