| Petit Fannypack, Clare Vivier |

Historically, I’ve always been pretty opposed to the fanny pack, even an admittedly chic-ish version such as this. The name, for one thing – it’s just awful, isn’t it? Also, I feel like once Carrie Bradshaw has done it, the rest of us just shouldn’t. And then there’s the simple fact that drawing more eyes toward my belly isn’t high on my list of sartorial goals. chic fanny pack

But having just adopted a second dog, I can tell you that the idea of something that doesn’t threaten to careen off my shoulder and into a waiting pile of…well, you know…every time I lean over to clean up someone’s mess is looking more appealing every day.

My question to you is this: Would you? I mean, not to the opera, but for weekend coffee jaunts, etc?

    I use a backpack purse for dog activities, and think I’ll keep passing on the fanny packs.

    BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY: Congrats on the official adoption of the smooshface! So happy for all of you.

    Bless Clare Vivier, but even if I wanted her fanny pack, I would look ridiculous in it (though all the shots I’ve seen of others rocking her bags look great). I did, however, look wonderful in 1987 with my neon pink nylon fanny pack, black and neon pink bike shorts, and t-shirts clipped with t-shirt clips.

    I have to agree with the others on this one. Fanny packs should stay firmly in the past. But I hear you on the doggy walk dilemma. I tend to stick with cross body bags that I push to the back before cleaning up after my pup — but they carry a risk, too! Still, I’ll “just say no” to the fanny pack.
