the fanny beyond the festivals

With Coachella kicking off this weekend, festival season is in full swing and that means it’s time to break out the fanny pack (hands free is KEY when it comes to choosing a festival bag). And although the fanny pack is perfect for festivals, we think this handy dandy little number should be a staple all year long.

The fanny we’re featuring here is designed by a mom and her 2 daughters, who’s mission is to liberate women from their baggage. Their company, Hipsters for Sisters, is a line of stepped up fanny packs made in the USA with a portion of the sale of every bag going directly to charities that either support Mother Earth or liberate and empower women.

Now that’s fashion we can get behind.

Like most women, we love shoes.  And when we shop for shoes, two things are key:  style and comfort.  We love our heels, but we are also very much into the idea of looking cool and stylish while not torturing ourselves.

Enter The Offices of Angela Scott.

Angel Scott is our kind of gal:  smart, stylish, entrepreneurial and a little bit kooky.  She is a tomboy at heart, having grown up in California with four older brothers.  This, in addition to her deep love with her grandfather and his impeccable style, has a major influence on her own style and her line of shoes.

Her moda operandi is comfortable shoes that look like a million bucks.  We’re not talking Clarks here, people; we’re talking about shoes that attract the savviest of fashionistas.

The style speaks for itself, but what’s the secret to the comfort factor?  It’s a cork insole.  Brilliant, right?

From wingtips to skater shoes, and even sandals and heels, The Offices of Angela Scott is filled with pieces that can be worn with everything from flirty dresses to your favorite beat-up jeans.  These shoes are made to be worn.  And that’s just the way we like our fashion.

The Offices of Angela Scott can be purchased in Chicago and on-line at Neiman Marcus and at TheOfficesofAngelaScott.
