I’m not a huge football fan, but every time I think of the Giants game that I went to a few years ago, I remember something very CLEARLY (ha).
My friend & I were all excited for the game. We came straight from work, so naturally we both had big purses with us! We went on line to get into the game, when all of a sudden we were escorted by security to a little stand in the parking lot. The stand had a cashier, and then lots of shelves which contained different purses all along them (very nice ones too). I had NO idea what was going on!
It was then that I found out that if we wanted to go into the stadium, we were not allowed to bring our purses in with us!
I remember thinking that there was no way possible that I was going into that game without my purse. Well… I was wrong. We were told it would be 100% safe for us to leave our bags there (it seemed like everyone was doing it), and that we’d be given a clear plastic ziplock bag that we could use for some of the important items in our bag that we wanted to bring in (money, phone, lip gloss).
Since it seemed like we had no choice, we checked our bags, and transported what we had into this…
I mean… I did want to go to this Giants game, but I cannot believe that I had to carry around this hideous plastic bag for 4 hours!
SO- here’s the scoop for those of you that weren’t aware of this policy like myself. In order to provide a safer environment, NFL teams have implemented an NFL policy that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into stadiums. The only bags that are allowed in are clear plastic bags that are 12″ x 6″ x 12″.
NOW, let me introduce you to Kristyn Chambers and her adorable clear bags. Seriously – this lady is a genius! Kristyn has created clear handbags that are both fashionable and stadium-approved. She designs her bags so that they can get you into the game… in style! Her bags have an insert in them, so if you decide to wear the bag somewhere other than a game & don’t want the clear look, you just put an insert in your bag! The inserts also come in different school colors so you can get a color to support the team’s game that you are going to! I’m wearing the Victory Mini Cheetah bag which is only $80!
I highly recommend that you check out her site!! The Clear Bag Policy is now even becoming a widely-accepted security standard for college athletics, large event venues, and concerts too, so this bag is definitely worth purchasing!
