When we think of style we rarely think of safety after all what does one thing has to do with the other? Well they can go together very well and help us in ways we didn’t even know we needed. I’d love to introduce you guys to Aubry Lane the newest handbag company located in our very own Indianapolis! Cheers for local love ♥︎
“Aubry Lane is inspired by women’s intrepid pursuit of personal style. Our handbags are designed to empower women as they make their mark on the world. Whether she is at home, at work, or at play, the elegant design of an Aubry Lane handbag transcends any social confines placed on the modern-day woman.” AB
Now what does safety has to do with gorgeous handbags again? Let me give a couple of facts: in 2014, 9.2 million women were victims of identity theft. In 2015, 2.7 million people were victims of violent crimes. Aubry Lane handbags come with technology that give women the opportunity to track their bags if stolen, and come with a built-in cell phone/SOS device in case of an emergency. An example of this would be if a person with their bags were in danger, they could hit the SOS button and a text message would go out to up to five contacts showing their location and then it would actually call the people on that list. This technology is seamlessly integrated into designer bags, focused on a clean and beautiful appearance to accentuate any woman’s look.
I selected the Narcia Bag in cream. Which is an oversized crossbody bag with lots of room for the business minded lady with effortless style! The look above is meant for the office or business meetings, obviously we can add a blazer and perhaps switch the sandals for pumps accordingly to your work enviroment.

I also wanted to style the Narcia with a dressy look yet chilled with a casual sweater. This would be a go out outfit and I’d wear a fitted leather jacket and booties for an edgeir look.
Finally I want to showcase how versatile the Narcia is, and how it can also go with a simple and casual look like a sweater & jeans combo. Clean and elegant to fit any style out there! Here you’ll find the collection.
I do love to support our local creative minds but what got my attention about Aubry Lane was truly how they have women’s safety in mind but don’t want to compromise style. I don’t know about you but I have found myself in a scary situation a few years ago when I felt like I was being followed at a grocery store parking lot with my (then baby) daughter. This guy stopped by and I thought he wanted my parking spot. I took notice and told him I was about to leave. He then started to say crazy inappropriate things. It took me a minute to realize what was happening and I started to yell at him and he took off. I called 911 but since the guy was no longer in the scene I was told there was nothing they could do and they took note of the car’s license plate after I basically begged telling them this guy could be harassing women in vulnerable situations (in my case with my baby in the grocery cart). Anyway, thinking back I could have just pressed a button.
I’m not a techy person so I was happy to hear the company is open to walk you through setting up the devices. They are simple but just in case, it’s good to know there’s an amazing customer care behind the brand!
How do you like this idea? I keep asking myself, how come nobody thought about this sooner?! If you also love AL’s style & technology combo you can get 30% off by using code “KARINA30” at the check out on Aubry Lane’s website.
