The Fanny Pack is Back

I know you all remember these being popular in the 80s! Well, they're back... at least according to the LA Times.

Do any of you also remember fanny packs being a fad in the early 2000s? When I was in high school, some girls wore the Gucci style or similar ones with flap pockets and guys wore Quicksilver or some other surf brand slung over their shoulder or even messenger style. I don't know if the guy part was a fad in other places, but I remember that being the cool thing in Hawai'i, I even saw a guy in his 20s with one a few nights ago! I never understood or ever found it attractive when the guys wore them.

And for 80s babies that wanna stay true to their beginnings can go vintage shopping for acid wash denim styles or just get American Apparel's version.

In other fanny pack news...
The Fanny Pack dancers are my absolute favorite on America's Best Dance Crew!

And for laughs, listen to "Camel Toe," my favorite song from the music group Fannypack. This song brings back many high school memories with my best friend, we even did a school project video with this song playing in the background!

I don't think I can ever rock a fanny pack again. Not only does it seem to tourist geek to me, but it's not really that flattering.
