They say history repeats itself. In this moment, I believe the statement is truer for fashion than for anything else. As an annual tradition, I delve into my parents’ attic at this time of the year to reorganize a few things and dig out treasures that I can incorporate into my life. More often than not, I turn up with more than a couple of items that I use as is, or craft and style them in a way that they would be chic in modern times. Not only does it save me huge bucks and keep me looking fresh, it also brings me closer to my family and leaves me intrigued as to the similarities and differences between my youth and my parents’.
As I prepared myself for the challenge this time around, I had a good feeling about the entire thing. Seeing as how vintage clothing is so in style, my instinct said that I was really going to find something worthwhile. Sure enough, the hunt lead to a recovery of one of the most controversial accessories in the 90’s fashion world – the fanny pack.
