The NFL's new handbag and purse policy is a bitch. It limits what anyone can bring into any NFL stadium for a game.
Having said that, if you're simply going to any game (NFL, NBA, MLB, etc.) and not bringing a gaggle of kids, I ALWAYS suggest a small cross body bag. These allow you to keep your hands free to clap, cheer, drink, flirt, text and more. It's just easier.
AT&T Stadium's policy dictates that bags be no bigger than 5.5" high and 8.5" wide which is slightly larger than what the NFL rules allow.
"The goal is to operate within reason," according to Cowboys corporate communications spokesman Brett Daniels.
Here are some cute purses that all fit within AT&T Stadium's policy:
It's professional enough for work and perfect for the game. You can keep this forever.
Kate Spade New York Brightspot Avenue Sally Crossbody Peony Pink for $158.00. Tiny but packs an adorable punch.
Target has a stylish selection of cross body bags and clutches but the sizes are deceiving. Make sure the bag fits within the 5.5 x 8.5 restrictions. This Limited Edition Small Saddle Bag with Studs is biker-cool and perfect for a Cowboys game. A steal at $22.99.
Looking for something a little more luxe to fit the scene at AT&T Stadium? My friends at Bella Bag, an online luxury consignment reseller, have an entire blog dedicated to helping you find something that works.
