Hugzilla Brings Booty-Bag Back: Becomes Fashion Blogger

So it seems that all this time I’ve been hiding my light under a bushel, when I thought I was hiding my fanny under a bum bag.

Here I was thinking I was just a DAGGY old mummy blogger, when what I REALLY am is a SHIT-HOT fashion blogger on the cutting-edge of coture.

For those of you who may have missed it, I caused a funny little stir a couple of months back when I made the brave confession that in lieu of a handbag, I actually used a bum bag instead.

A green nylon bumbag.

Like this.

It left people howling with laughter and howling with derision and howling with disbelief.

Lots of my conversations – real and online – went like this.

Them: Do you REALLY wear that thing?

Me: Yes.

Them: OMG I thought you were JOKING!

Me: No.

Them: Oh.

**awkward silence**

I warned everyone that I was single-handedly bringing booty-bag back, and NO ONE believed me.

Then the sightings started…

The trickle became a flood and then this story broke on Mamamia:

“Is this trend really EVER going to take off? Please say no”

(Note to newly-emerging diva-self: Leverage Mamamia contacts to have author fired)

Stella McCartney.

Sarah Jessica Parker.


Fashion icons, all.

Who’s laughing now, bitches?

                And PS. Hugzilla vs SJP.

                        I wore it better.   Do you agree?

  1. LMFAO my husband always talks about getting his old bum bag out and I laugh until I cry saying please no!!!! My Dad actually told him that we all carried bum bags around when I was young (It was the 90’s for goodness sake!) and now he won’t let me live it down.
    I’m an SJP girl all the way, but you totally rocked that booty bag

    • Dust it off! You will experience a sense of freedom you never thought possible! And I’m a 90’s girl too. I think that bum bags were one of the least heinous fashion items at the time. Hypercolour, anybody?

  2. Ha ha! Well, there you go. Yet another trend I’ve clearly overlooked. I’m sure I have one of those things in the bottom of a cupboard left over from my overseas travelling days. It will be old and dusty, but that just gives me permission to call it ‘vintage’! Nailed it!

    • I’m loving the way that people have held onto their old bags, like they KNOW they were always gonna come storming back into fashion one day! And thanks for the “Who Wore It Better” vote.

    • Happy pants never went ou! of fashion in my world! TBH there is a current trend for pants that look suspiciously like they are bordering on “happy pant” territory. They are usually in some gaudy print as well.
