For the first time EVER I’ve been wanting a belt bag… or a fanny pack as it used to be called. (Can you believe, the fanny pack is back!) While they are completely functional, they always make me think of a poorly dressed tourist. But then Gucci started sending them down the runway and I started coming across the vintage ones from Chanel. Let’s just say my mind started to change…
So one day when I was scrolling through Storets I came across this striped dress that I’m wearing and noticed the model wearing a belt bag!
I really really really wanted one for this outfit but with it being such a trendy item, I want to find a good deal before I purchase. Until then, I’ll just keep searching The Real Real and Vestiaire Collective and let you know what I find.
So I have to ask… would you wear one?
But back to the dress — it’s HUGE! I love how flowy it is but in all honestly it really would look best with a belt. (Or belt bag.) But I tried to make do with wearing my Gucci as a crossbody bag. Since fashion is all about proportion you’re going to want to create a waistline in this dress. (Unless you’re preggo and let me tell you this will work for any of you mommas-to-be.)
Love this red + white striped dress? Check out these other striped pieces… and they’re all under $100!
