Machete is bringing the fanny pack back. What? You haven’t seen Danny Trejo’s iconic fashion in his line of hypermasculine movies? Well, watch out runways!
I used to LOVE my fanny packs in my 20s. OK, no one ever said I was a nerd(to my face) but no one ever said I wasn’t a nerd. I’m ok with that.
Being that our family is going to embark on a big theme park vaca sometime before school starts, I was contemplating how I was going to carry around my wallet. Lightbulb! The ol’ trusty fanny pack. SO I ask my husband if he knew if they, being the big conglomerates, still sold fanny packs anywhere. His answer was quick and emphatic, “NO. NO ONE SELLS FANNY PACKS. THERE IS NO NEED FOR A FANNY PACK.” My inner nerd silently whined as it was whisked back to her closet. Ok, fine. No fanny pack. Next he’s going to tells me I can’t ever buy another all brown outfit again. (Fine that one was bad too especially since I kept getting mistaken as an UPS delivery person at an old job I had – for real.)
RIP – Fanny.
