Please, just let it die

I don't know who this Muriel Brandolini is, but I'd like to give her a swift kick in the pants for trying to foist this "belt bag" on me.

Okay, this is a fanny pack, people. I don't care how many handy compartments there are, or how many animals are embroidered on it, this thing has no business being around your waist unless you were cryogenically frozen in it back in 1982.

And don't even get me started on how tremendously unflattering this is. Why in God's name would anyone want to spend $109 on a bag that adds bulk to the hip and tummy regions? And keep in mind that $109 is the sale price.

I've seen my share of ugly handbags, but this is the first to trigger a gag reflex. I think I need to go lie down now.

    It looks like a leftover from when "aprons" were in style.
    It could be handy for cleaning house though. You'd have a pocket for the duster, rags, windex...

    Oh. Mah. Gawd. It's like the preppy-femme version of the utility belt my brother wore when he worked in construction. Pass the Pepto.

    Ok, this is only acceptable if you are 4 years old and on your way to the "painting station" in preschool.....

    This bag is not making a good fashion statement. It seems more appropriate if you were a children's art teacher. And even at a price of over $100, no teacher could afford to spend that much money...

    Ugliness rules here- Apron, please don't insult them - apron are much nicer. Utility belt is about it. LOL

    Wow. How unappealing. It would probably come in handy as a chastity belt.

    That looks like something you'd take travelling, hang over the back of the bathroom door and put your toiletries in. But the difference here is, you are the door and you can take your toiletries with you wherever you go walking! Like at the mall, you chip a nail and must repaint. Whip out the cotton pad and polish remover right from your left hip. Or maybe you have that not so fresh feeling... whip out the Shower to Shower powder from your right hip... walla! Fresh again. Now that is handy! (ugh!)
