The Fanny pack was seen on the runways this Fashion week season.
The functional bags that keep your hands free are a throwback to the 90s but back then, they were usually vinyl and brightly colored. Called a “Fanny pack” because it is worn at the waist, right above the Fanny, the reinvented fashionable ones have more variety.
They are worn across the body, at the waist or on the hip like a holster.
Also called a “bum bag”, the bags famously made an appearance in the 2000s as seen worn by Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw on her hit HBO show Sex and the City.
Last night, I tried out the style while attending a soca music concert and out and about in DC.
I couldn’t help but notice how freeing it was to not have to hold Anything.
GET THE LOOK:.
Sarah Jessica Parker is in the news for returning to television in the HBO television show Divorce and for hinting that one of my all-time fave shows Sex and the City may possibly be making its second big screen debut. I’m excited. I’ve been following Miss Parker’s career since she was a teenager appearing in movies like Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Footloose and LA Story in the early 1990s.
I’ve been also impressed by her foray into fashion and have always found her to be quite the stylish mom. I also admired that she was one of the early celebs to be upfront about having fertility struggles and using a surrogate to welcome her twin daughters in the world with husband fellow 90s Brat Pack member Mathew Broderick.
I peeped this adorable fall outfit that she wore while out and about with her girls the other day. You can get the look for under $350!

So… Is anyone going to point out the Sex and the City connection with Chelsea Clinton‘s children’s names? The former First Daughter and her husband Marc Mezvinsky named their first child, daughter Charlotte and their newborn son, Aidan. He was born on Saturday, June 18.
Both names are characters in the popular 90s HBO scripted series about a relationship advice columnist in the city, based on the book of the same name by Candace Bushnell. Sarah Jessica Parker played the columnist Carrie Bradshaw. The show centered around her friends Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon), Charlotte Goldenblatt (Kristin Davis) and Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall).
Aidan Shaw (John Corbett) had a reoccurring role for several seasons as Parker’s boyfriend.
Chelsea’s mom Hillary Clinton took a brief break from campaigning to become the next President of the United States to enjoy some time with her newest grandchild.
A bunch of people came to see her leave the hospital. Later, her dad, President Bill Clinton shared a Father’s Day photo. “Aidan has made two dads very happy this Father’s Day,” the former head of the Free World captioned a photo of himself and son-in-law with baby Aidan. “Hillary and I are thrilled for Marc and Chelsea!”
Charlotte was born in October 2014.
