I'm not gonna lie, I love these. I just haven't found the perfect one yet... (Leather, and the purse has to be the perfect size!)

I like belts with a zipper in them of a small pouch attached. Most of the ones in the pitures above are too bulky for me. Otherwise I love them.

It looks like a tool belt?

I love the photo examples you've used! The leather definitely makes it look more classy than a touristy bum-bag :P I probably couldn't pull it off though, and anyway, I wouldn't be able to fit everything I wanted to carry around in one- i'm a fan of lugging around a lot of stuff :)

I'm so glad this is coming back! I'm all for being able to carry stuff hands-free and it is easy on the back!

the minute i saw one of these for sale in downtown LA I went crazy for it but I didn't buy it because I didn't have enough cash on me. It's totally chic in my oppinion(:

If they purse belts are not too bulgy, or are similar to the biker belt bags....they would work for certain outfits. I'm still trying to source one that works for my style.

I ain't too keen on this trend, just not my style ;d

i dont know i'm kinda loving the older looking fanny pack ones on the runway. call it a weakness, but i happen to love incredibly tacky things that just work haha

on the runway yes but hard to pull of in reality

ehh I dont like it maybe the leather ones that have a small pouch but I dont like it so far

they look very cute with skirts and ultragirly clothing, that way it balances out the ensemble!!!

a little short of fanny packs. they look cute by themselves

I'm sorry, this just reminds me too much of the fanny packs my dad wears, and the shame that came along with them Lol

i think they're pretty cool. they're definitely a different take on the fanny pack and i'm in aggreeance with smash86 - they are more sophisticated and stylish. I like the smaller look that many chictopians are doing

I think they look really elegent and chic as long as the pouch isn't too big on the belt. The leather gives it a more sophisted feel than a fanny pack and this totally seems like something I would wear. Practical and stylish!

Kind of reminds me of my nerdy Physics professor in college :P
