Recently I had the pleasure of being invited to Vogue’s Fashion x Football event in New York City and it got me to thinking about how to score a touchdown with my own fashion flair while attending the games this season. In case you didn’t know, there are new rules when it comes to fashion accessories at the games this year and it has many fashionistas in an uproar. The new NFL All Clear policy prohibits camera bags, coolers, luggage or large totes of any kind within any NFL football games. In an effort to keep fans safe, the NFL encourages fans to not bring any type of bags at all – but they’ve made a few concessions with the women in mind. So what does that mean for female fans? We’re limited to what type and size bags we can bring into the stadium, but that shouldn’t prohibit our stylish options at all.
This year, I plan on attending a hometown tradition of Thanksgiving with a side of Detroit Lions football. Lucky for me, I won’t have to travel far for a stylish ensemble that’s stadium appropriate. With the NFL All clear policy, I’ve been prompted to invest in a clear envelope clutch purse (since it falls within the guidelines of permissible bags) and bring along only the necessities needed i.e lipstick, credit cards, ID & cash. For a complete list of permissible bags visit http://www.nfl.com/allclear. I created a unique sporty look completely inspired by the clear bag which includes a striped Golden Goose three quarter sleeve t-shirt from FarFetch.com, Von Vonni Maxi dress (which happens to be on sale) and Roxy gray wedge shoes along side tons of adorable accessories including a Michael Kors sports watch. Check out this collection and share how you plan on accessorizing for the NFL All Clear season.

When functional style meets creative design, that’s a recipe for stylish success! Samsung, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, and New York-based designer Alexander Wang revealed the finished product following months of collaboration with some of the industry’s most creative contributors. The limited-edition Alexander Wang Wallie gym sack is the first co-created bag inspired by crowd-sourced sketches and images created using the GALAXY Note II.
Alexander Wang resourced the ‘collective inspiration’ of a select group of Samsung smartphone users for his latest collection. Called the ‘Wallie’, the gym sac has a drawstring closure, reinforced leather corners, and a black and gray print on the lambskin finish.? The bag’s abstract print was produced by Wang by combining different images (photos, doodles, patterns) created using Samsung’s Galaxy Note II smartphones by a group of his close friends, stylists, photographers, and others.
“The abstract print really captures the energy of New York City,” the designer explained. “This collaboration is a great example of how technology and style can come together in an unexpected but really meaningful way.” The bag will go on sale this August The bag is available in select locations from this month, and proceeds from the sale of the $550 bag will go towards the Art Start charity, that uses the arts to nurture the creative talents of at-risk children and youth.
