You’ve seen them seemingly everywhere. Malls. Sidewalks. Friends’ pictures on social media. Celebrities across the board. It’s the Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag, and it’s taking the world by storm.
I recently succumbed to the temptation to purchase one. The peer pressure. The need to fit in. No, not for me, but for my teenage daughter. ‘Everybody has one,’ she would exclaim. She was right. But I’m not one to allow peer pressure to affect my decisions. And that’s a bad example to set… at least, that’s what common sense tells me. But as a gal who was the only one without a pair of Guess jeans in middle school, I can totally relate to what she was saying. Plus, she’s a decent negotiator. Once she saw me waffling on her original pleas, she went for the jugular. She used reasoning.
You see, she has a summer trip with her school coming up, and they’ll be traveling the sites in some big cities. While they can take a backpack, the tour leaders recommended they not carry their items using that method because it’s a pickpocket’s dream setup. Quick, easy, and the poor oblivious teen has no idea they were even there.
With the Lululemon belt bag, however, they can keep their items in front and out of harm’s way. And yes, I realize I could find a cheaper option, but that Guess sign keeps flashing in my nightmares. And for $38, it didn’t seem so unreasonable. So, this summer, if you (or your mini-me) feel like wearing a very cool (and not overly pricy) slick little bag, consider one. If you aren’t familiar with them, hop on Facebook. All your friend’s kids will be carrying them. Trust me.
Plus, according to Meagan, it’s the perfect bag for a day at Disney or one of the best purses for travel in Europe.
