Talk about a blast from the past! I was just looking through some old photographs the print kind and I saw one of me in Disney World wearing a fanny pack. My first reaction was to rip it up and burn it, not wanting anyone in my family to see this example of a fashion faux pas. However, I ended up sharing it with my family to illustrate to them what was in fashion back then. Unfortunately for us there are still some people that use these fanny packs. And I have used it this summer to hold my cell phone when I went for my bike rides.
The good news is there is now a better, more discrete, and more fashionable way to carry your personal items around your waist. It is called the “Hip Hugger” and it is a fashion belt for women that can hold your cell phone, credit cards, cash, keys, and more. The “Hip Hugger” fits comfortably around your waist and provides sleek pockets in front with a hidden pocket for your cash and keys. You no longer have to worry about carrying around a purse or pocket book when you go out. Enjoy hands free shopping, power walking, jogging, zumba, or just about anything.
Well after seeing this old picture of my sporting a bulky embarrassing fanny pack I am surely ready to make the change to the sleek and comfortable “Hip Hugger.” I wonder if I will be just as embarrassed looking back on photos of me wearing the “Hip Hugger” in the future. Just remember for some strange reason I along with many others used to think that the fanny pack was the coolest thing in the world. Lol

The belts retail for $68 and the wrist hugger retail for $12 and $24.Now I go back to my hip hugger. The color that I picked is called “Coffee Bean” featuring brown and yellow colors. Did I mention it is reversible? Now that I look at my pictures above I think the color that I picked does not really match with my outfit. What do you think? Yellow sorta stands out and does not fit with my jeans outfit. Now that I go back to the Petal and Stem to look at their collection of 20+ different color combination, I think that the darker color like black/blue would fit my style and outfit better. The only negative thing that I noticed about my hip hugger is that the yellow side of my hip hugger got dirty with dark spots after wearing it for less than 4 hours with my jeans. Note to myself: Do not wear light color purses or light color hip hugger with your blue jeans as they seem to color run on your light color accessories. Other than the color issue, I think the this belt has some unique uses as well as makes traveling safe and easy.Update: Hip Hugger Petal and Stem coupon code: 20% off taken at checkout.
