Not Your Mama’s Fanny Pack

There is something incredibly liberating about being years away from transporting around an overstuffed diaper bag. Now I make the kids wear packs for our day-tripping – and I suppose that I’ve streamlined my must-carry essentials (save those days that I need my camera, plus lenses and a laptop).  I’ve been searching for a smart alternative to a great bag for quite sometime while lusting over the idea of a hands-free bag.  I haven’t found a backpack that I love and pretty much loath the designer-logo-emblazoned glorified fanny-packs that I still see everywhere.

As a busy New Yorker, mother and overall multitasker I was seriously thrilled to discover Hipsters for Sisters.  They’ve mastered the stylish and innately wearable belt-bag without looking anything like Sporty Spice.

Founded by a mother and daughter trio, Hipsters for Sisters is also committed to sustainability. Their L.A. manufactured-products are comprised of only earth-friendly materials.


The classic styles with minimalist aesthetics are designed to fit only the essentials, as a simplistic lifestyle reminder to live a life filled with more experiences and meaning, and less “stuff.”


Once you give this modernized hands-free style a try, you won’t ever want to go back.

Most definitely NOT your mama’s fanny pack.
