Bringin’ The Fanny Pack Back, Vegan-Style

September 8, 2015By 7 Comments

A few weeks ago, my hubs, a mega deadhead, dragged invited me to Jerry Day in San Francisco (hippie festival honoring the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia). While I totally respect the music and scene as a whole, it was definitely a bit out of my comfort zone. It was nice to see peeps gettin’ their free spirit on, spinning, hugging, singing, etc., but what really blew me away were all the f*cking fabulous fanny packs! I was ogling people’s bums left and right – I seriously wanted to know where everyone scored their sweet pouches!

Seriously, I felt like such a fool for luggin’ around and keeping tabs on my big ol’ oversized hand bag (full of 90% crap)… made me realize the fanny pack needs to make a comeback!

Later that night, I spent hours (I kid you not) on Etsy looking for the most awesome fanny packs on the interwebs. Gah, I looooooove Etsy SO much! There were so many beautiful bum bags online that my head was spinning… these are the ones that completely stole my heart (and my hip):

THIS killer, sleek and modern fanny pack from theUNUSUALconcept‘s “Mutant” Collection ($44). It consists of 2 pouches that are detachable, so you can use them separately or together. The pouch has loops in the back that allow you to slide it through your belt. It looks compact, but it actually fits quite a bit! I keep my iphone in the larger compartment and my credit cards, money and lip balm in the smaller one.

This deep blue flowered bumbag by Downonzecorner ($33.26) is another winner! It has a closing clip and adjustable belt, reminiscent of the fanny packs from the ’80s (super convenient if you’re not an actual belt wearer). The fabric/pattern is super feminine, playful, and cute. It’s fits my phone, wallet, and a couple lip balms. 😀

Another gem is PennySparkleVegan‘s one-of-a-kind, handcrafted artsy hip bag ($65). All of PennySparkleVegan’s accessories are inspired by surrealistic art and feature creative hand painted fabric, vegan leather, and beautiful artistic stitching – have never seen anything like these before; they’re totally unique! This hip pouch, which can be looped through any belt, is the perfect size for a phone, keys and small wallet. Seriously, how stinkin’ quirky and cute is this bag?!
