Fanny Packs Brought In More Money Than You'd Think In 2018—Here Are The Receipts

2018 has been quite a year, and as people look back, one particular fashion trend stands out.


That trend is none other than the fanny pack.

For anyone reading this who was raised in the late '90s, early '90s, the words "fanny pack" probably evoked some sort of horror or repulsion.

However, a rebirth has occurred and the waist-strapped purses have caused quite a stir in the market.

According to Quartzy,

"Despite making up just 1% of fashion-accessories sales, fanny packs were responsible for nearly 25% of the industry's growth in the first 10 months of this year."

The stats were reported by The NPD Group, and one of their analysts, Beth Goldstein, explained the trend.

"Changing consumer behaviors, such as travel and the pursuit of convenience, are changing the way consumers everywhere think about the accessories they need."

Men have even jumped on the trend, and designers like Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, and Gucci have also taken part.

Then trend is also differing from its '80s predecessor by way of how it is worn.

Instead of the around-the-waist standard, today's fanny packs can also be worn over the shoulder and across ones chest.

Some people are all about the throwback trend.





Others (presumably the aforementioned '80s and '90s babies) have no interest in making fanny packs a "thing" again.

It's another ordinary day in America.

So of course that means we've already had a mass shooting or two before brunch.

And aside from the mass shootings, the number of single gunshot wounds or deaths is too high to count.

So let's discuss the aftermath.

Let's hear from the people who have faced the barrel of a loaded gun, or were just a casualty going about their day.

What happens after the bullet lands?

It's never attractive to gloat.

Nor does superiority ever come off as a particularly attractive attribute.

But, consciously or not, some people speak or behave in a way that immediately suggests that they think they deserve to be treated differently, i.e better than others.

Or that they believe they simply are better than other people.

A recent Redditor was curious what sort of behavior struck other people as elitist or arrogant behavior by asking:

"What screams "I am entitled"?"

There's something about the woods that creeps me out. Listen here, people: I'm a city guy. The idea of getting lost out there freaks me out. No thank you. I wasn't made for that. The rest of you who like to go camping and stuff? You do you. I'll stick with my running water.

But maybe I've seen too many horror movies. After all, if I saw some creepy stuff in the woods I'd definitely run in the other direction. And so would you, right? Right?

"What have you seen in the woods that you can’t explain?"

We're all not geniuses.

Everybody has varying degrees of knowledge and brain power.

And that is ok.

Though some of us are really lacking in any sense and every once and awhile people like to sugarcoat that fact when they call us out.

"Bless your heart."

That's a big one in the South. Means... "I like you, but Lord are you missing marbles."
