You're Going to Tear Your Hair Out Trying to Find a Cell Phone in This Optical Illusion

Would You Stash Your Cell In A Fanny Pack?

It's not bringing sexy/back, it's bringing the fanny pack back! American Apparel has just come out with a new line of nylon cordura fanny packs, which are a very close throwback to the amazing cell phone, marker and chalk holder my high school English teacher used to wear. And only because they are from American Apparel and available in cool colors like amethyst, dusty rose and peacock am I giving them any attention whatsoever. For only $14, they might just be the perfect solution to that camera/iPod case you've been searching for...if you happen to be in the market for a fanny pack. According to Styledash "these bags are slightly better than the fanny packs you might remember from 1988." Hey if Courteney Cox can get away with wearing an ugly cell phone clip, anything is possible!

Alright so I've looked at alot of these comments and theres alot of people that say they hate fanny packs but really fanny packs are extreamly convenent. They are completely hands free and in a very reachable spot. maybe they arn't as cute as a purse but I would pick them over a purse any day!

I'd only wear the fanny pack if i could also have the sweet camel toe that she has in the picture. GROSS the whole idea is GROSS.

This may come as a shocker but I am not the whole "purse" "fannypack" kind of girl.

This fanny pack is hideous. Please check out the Celicase at, a WONDERFUL alternative to the fanny pack. The fanny pack needs to stay in the 80's forever!

yessssssssssss... i've been craving some fanny pack action for years, though i prefer baby phat's black leather version. now if only i could get over american apparel's totally played out and overtly exploitative advertising strategy.

"available in cool colors like amethyst, dusty rose and peacock" THAT my just fancy words for pink, probably washed out pink and purple...or green! if they wanna bring them back I suggest changing the name from "fanny packs" to...say... "tech bags" or "belly carry all"...LOL! ;)

A few years back - my company gave fanny packs with the company logo on them - I seriously pee my pants whe I even think about them! Fanny packs are hideous! I re-gifted mine to a newbie and when we need a good laugh - he pulls it out and wears it around the office. Sad part about it is that he and I are the only ones who find it entertaining!
