Hi my beautiful Reading Rainbows! Welcome, again, to: THE BLOG.

The Fashion Fanny Pack has received quite a lot of attention lately. I'd like to take a moment and share some of my favorite fashion fanny pack articles, and songs, with you.

1. The New York Times Magazine 

Letter of Recommendation: Fanny Packs

"For too long, the fanny pack’s cultural baggage has prevented potential adoptees from embracing its sheer practicality. To the unenlightened, fanny packs are synony­mous with the ugly American: the perfect accessory for extra-large, convenience-obsessed people. But to me they promote the greatest of our nation’s ideals: freedom."

"Nicole Richie admitted on her new TV show, “Candidly Nicole,” that she attended a Jay Z concert wearing a fanny pack. And she advised her fashionable fans to 'buy them and buy them some more.'"

6. USA Today

Fanny packs go front row

"What's the allure of the fanny pack? Simple. 'It has a utilitarian purpose'...It's perfect for the traveler. 'When you're traveling, there is something nice about being able to pop on your ... fanny pack … and keep your hands free.'"

7. The Triangle

The fanny pack may be redeemed in fashion

"As much as we’d hate to admit it, the fanny pack indicates freedom. Imagine a weekend, ladies, where we can leave the house with simply our phone, keys and ID like the other half of the population usually does, as opposed to lugging around a bulky shoulder bag."

Koo Koo Kanga Roo - Fanny Pack

"Today's Song of the Day is "Fanny Pack" by Koo Koo Kanga Roo, from their album, Whoopty Whoop."

This last one isn't an article but it deserves just as much praise and attention as if it were one. It's now my ringtone and email alert jingle. (Whatever happened to ring tones? Do they still make those?)



Remember to share and post the love!
