AJ Wears :: A McFanny Pack

Look, I don't have to tell you the fanny pack is back. I've seen people wearing them both ironically and un. Heck, if Gucci is making a fanny pack in leather and calling it a "waist bag" we've reached peak 90's revival. 

And today, I am wearing a pretty sweet fanny pack. It has BIG MACS ALL OVER IT.

Why would one need such a pack? Besides the obvious, like holding your keys and your increasingly larger phones, they are also handy for carrying around a large amount of fries.

Okay, okay, here's the fun part. McDonald's + UberEats sent me this burger swag to promote McDelivery Day, which is coming up Thursday, July 19th. At 10:30 a.m. your time, all you have to do is place a $5 or more order for McDonald's on your UberEats app and you've got a chance to get some throwback McDelivery swag like...you guessed it, this fanny pack. They've got pins, tees, socks, all sorts of fun stuff - but it's first come, first serve and in limited supply so set your alarms now.

I've actually never ordered UberEats before, so we decided to try it out tonight and I gotta say, I'm a fan. It was SUPER fast, and way too easy because we ordered WAY too much food. Check it out, they wrap the drinks so they don't spill.

Way, way, WAY too much food. They have cookies. WE GOT AN EXTRA COOKIE AND I DIDN'T HAVE ROOM.

Yeah I'm way too excited about this. I'm sure it depends on where you live, but our order placed at 6:42 was arriving just around 7:00 and basically I don't see a reason to leave my house again.

So let's recap: Awesome fanny pack - free stuff with your McDelivery order July 19th - and I am an enormous dork.

For a full list of participating restaurants, check out McDeliveryatMcDonalds.com. I got some free stuff for posting about this stuff, FYI, including a delicious Quarter Pounder with Cheese. But the UberEats review was just a random thing I decided to do because I was so impressed with the process. You can trust me, I'm a fry enthusiast. 

AJ Wears :: Wide Navy Pants

Y'all know I love full disclosure. These pants didn't zip all the way up today. So I found a shirt that would cover the zipper, and I went to work, because I'm fabulous and I don't need my pants to zip. I got these pants in NICE, FRANCE, yo. Pretty sure people are a lot smaller there because they only eat cheese and bread or something. Am I gonna let slightly small pants ruin my day? No way, Rosé.

Most people complimented my shirt anyway.

Lol. Sorry everything today is so old.

AJ Wears :: Festival

I'm not gonna lie, I've never understood the whole "festival" style thing. My first "festival" was Warped Tour circa 2000, where I wore an Eyeliners tshirt and Chuck Taylors, and almost got crushed to death from crowd surfers coming over the barrier when I was on the front row of NOFX (for the record - I was just there because I wanted to be front row for Something Corporate, duh). It was not fussy. It was not flower crowns and wedges and bodysuits. WHO THOUGHT BODYSUITS WERE A GOOD IDEA? You are probably going to the bathroom in a porta-potty. Plan accordingly, ladies. Rompers are not your friend.

That being said, I saw this dress on RTR and thought, "Hey, that's a good outdoor concert dress." And in theory, it was. I felt cute and for the most part, I was comfortable. Sure, it was like 90 outside and maybe sleeves were a little ambitious but in the shade it was fine, and my shoulders let the heat out. That's what I'm telling myself, anyway.

I'd also like to apologize to the dry cleaners at Rent the Runway. I'm sure you deal with a lot and I did not help you at all with that.

Dress, Free People via Rent the Runway (exact).
Backpack, Longchamp (exact - review coming soon!).
Sandals, Sole Society (similar from Forever 21).

Oh, and also - I'm going to start reviewing my RTR rentals with whether or not I'd buy the pieces. This one? TOTAL buy! It comes in white and red too!
