If you haven’t put it together by now, I love color. I know the trend right now is “all things neutral,” but maybe as a someone who was a teen in the 80s AND was an art major, colors made a lasting impression on my artistic choices. What you wear can be an artistic expression too, right? I found this striped sweater dress at TJ Maxx on the clearance rack for 14.99!

I have always thought “Fanny Packs” were quite useful, but for quite some time you would never see me wearing one, because, fashion. Imagine my delight now that I see all sorts of “Belt Bags” in various colors and textures that are not only useful, but well, FASHIONABLE. I wore this one just about every day during a recent trip to New York and even this Southern girl from Mississippi (yes we like fashion too, people!) got so many compliments on it.

Here are some other great examples here:

Teddy Bear fur Belt Bag
Black Belt Bag with Fringe
Brown Studded Belt Bag

Enjoy the ride!
