7 reasons why the fanny pack is a trend to bring back

Here we are at day 2 of my drafts folder cleaning. I'm super excited about today's topic, and judging by y'alls comments you are too: Fanny Packs!

Back in college when I was in charge of the marketing for my sorority I made the fabulous decision that we all needed matching fanny packs as a little work week treat. That was one of the best decisions I made in that office and I love that I still see the girls wearing them today. I loved that fanny pack so much I worked it into just about every costume I wore for an event senior year.

Like most good things fanny packs invoke some pretty strong emotions in people. Clearly I L.O.V.E. them. Seriously nothing would make me happier about the fashion world than to see an entire show at the next NYFW where every model is wearing a fanny pack. I don't know what happened between the 90s and today that turned this totally practical fashion statement into something seen as only for your grandma to wear. Think back to your youth and I bet you can think of a time you wore a fanny pack and had a pretty fabulous time. Fanny packs are awesome and today I want to share why this is one trend that needs to come back into style!

Reasons the Fanny Pack is a trend we should bring back
1. you never have to worry about leaving it somewhere
2. no more worry about how a heavy purse is bad for your back
3. easy access to all your things
4. leaves your arms free to carry more important things like alcoholic beverages 
5. less expensive than designer bags
6. wearing one says "I'm here to have a good time"
7. wearing one also says "I don't take myself too seriously"

What are your feelings on fanny packs? And if you don't like them you can just keep your dumb opinions to your self
