The Practical Bustle

by jennine on September 4, 2008

It’s amazing someone hasn’t thought of this before. As I was scrolling through my reader this morning, I almost spit out my coffee when I saw the SwanDiamondRose Ruffle Bustle. After all, we love ruffle bags, we love ruffles, bustles are gorgeous, but who can really fit them underneath their pencil skirts? This fanny pack/bum bag (don’t say fanny pack in England, you’ll get all kinds of snickering), is a perfect little bag for those of us with sore shoulders or those of us who don’t want to leave our essentials in our coat check.

That’s super sassy! I think my only wish was the zip was on the inside, so it didn’t break up the fun of the ruffles (but then how would you get your things?!).

It actually makes that style of bag chic.

Amazing what a few ruffles can do!

I can’t lie…although I wouldn’t wear this often, I could see it being great for a street fair or something. Until someone snuck up behind me and opened it! (if they knew what it was)

Wow, I’ve never been one for bum bags (has anyone, really?) but this really takes the cake! Looks a bit like one, too :)

What a great idea! I would love to see bloggers use it in their outfits, to see what works with it.
