Denim bumbags sighted in UK, Fashion Police investigating

Denim-bum-bags  We don't want to be unnecessarily alarmist here (oh, OK, we kinda do…) but it would appear the whole "Return of 80s Fashion" crisis is more serious than we initially thought.

How do we know this?

Because ASOS are selling denim bumbags. And not just any old denim bumbags: acid wash ones. With fluorescent yellow trim.

'Nuff said.

    I had that bum bag when I was in High School,1982. I just made my Mom put it in a garage sale.

    Are those white lace-ups they suggest also part of the 80’s thing? If so, we’re in big trouble – passed two (unrelated) people at a bus stop the other day both wearing them – ugh.

    I didn`t see one of those in ages. I remember when I went on class trips with the school, every kid had one (parents made us) to keep the money in it, to keep it safe. At least mine was dark green…

    When I saw this I couldn’t help but shiver a little.
