    mjmotal liked post by Aeon On thread : Fanny Packs
    In women's fashion, they are somewhat in; I can't speak of men's fashion. Women's fanny packs are mini purses or clutches that are designed to be worn around the hip and bear little resemblance to a...

    mjmotal liked post by al85 On thread : No More Solar?
    Black/Solar is my favorite combo, but I've warmed up pretty quick to navy/solar and nordic/solar. I shall miss solar so very very much when it is finally gone.
