“Secure on Style” was created in Sutton, MA by local businesswoman Tammy Blakeslee as a result of the NFL Clear Bag Policy in 2013. It is the goal of Secure on Style to provide an elegantly designed, quality zippered clear plastic handbag that meets security requirements but looks good in a multitude of settings.
The fabric liners and straps can be changed to coordinate with the team colors to show your support at the games. Then change the liner to a fancy print for an evening at a nightclub or event that also may have security procedures on entering. When security is required but privacy is desired… the Secure on Style Security Handbag is the ONLY handbag to be carrying.
Bags are $24.99
