Trends: Keeping up with the trends and my love for a non-trendy product

Keeping up with trends is like keeping up with the Joneses. I can’t stand it. Don’t get me wrong, there are trends out there that I like. But once I start liking a trendy product, there is always something new…and, more often than not, when I find some new trend I like…I find out, it’s not a trend anymore.  It’s crazy annoying. I guess I’ll just have to accept being that “not-so-fashion-trendy-person.” 

Have you seen that Facebook question status going around?Fanny Packs trends; Facebook question albuquerque moms blog

The question is “What is an opinion you hold that would be considered largely unpopular?” It got me thinking, and it occurred to me that my opinion might possibly get me kicked out of the “cool kids” club. But it’s all about my love for a “non-trendy” product. Here is my answer to that question.

Fanny Packs. I like Fanny Packs!

There you have it. Go ahead and laugh.

You will be laughing right there with my sister and best friend. Let’s just say, I may or may not have had a fanny pack at a night club once in Vegas with the two of them.  Yeah, that was me.  Fanny Packs are not trendy, I don’t even know if they ever were, but I have a feeling…they are going to be. 

They make sense!

I can’t stand the weight of a purse on my shoulder, only to constantly have it slide off. Or the other option: having it across my chest. Major boob problems.

Being comfortable is what makes sense to me. Products that are practical and useful, those should be trends. Hands free, shoulder free shopping is a more pleasurable experience. So, go fanny packs! And I looked them up, and it turns out I am not alone. Lots of celebs like them too. Rumor has it, the Fanny Pack is back. And I am super excited about this.

Did you know there are fashionable fanny packs now!?  Tyra Banks, Brooke Sheilds, and Rihanna among many others have been seen wearing fashionable fannies. Click here to check it out.

    Ha! I love this confession, Rochelle! I get so tired of trends and having worked in fashion as a stylist for a long time, I feel like I’m in a stage of backlash. I almost don’t care what my outfits look like if I’m comfortable in them. Sometimes hindsight is 20/20 and I realize I spent the day embarrassing whomever happened to be stuck with me that day. But alas, life is about more than being stylish or trendy.

    I really want to like the fashionable fanny packs but I feel like they just make my hips look wider and that’s counterproductive. I’m sticking with my giant luggage purse. It’s heavy but I use a shopping cart everywhere I go, even if it’s just for milk.
