Each bag comes in a dust bag with cat’s ears made by the “nanays” of @plushandplay Last month we went together to visit the shop in GK Enchanted Farm @gkenchantedfarm and it’s so nice to see that she’s helping them out at the same time creating such a unique packaging for her beautiful bags

 Style Cat (1)Style Cat “An eco-ethical line of locally made resort/wicker bags for equally adventurous curious cats. My first ever collection, Style Cat Resort: Take Me To Purradise is inspired and named after by MUST-SEE destinations: Aruba (southern Caribbean), Calaguas (in the Philippines), Santhiya (in Thailand), Port Douglas (in Australia) and Uluwatu (in Bali.) I love the idea of using locally sourced material (such as traffia, abaca, banukan) and seeing products made by our incredibly talented artisans. I wish everyone who sees the Style Cat bags already imagine their next adventure, their next travel goal – after all, its meow or never.”Style Cat (3) Style Cat (8) Style Cat (11) Style Cat (2) Style Cat (10) Style Cat (7) Style Cat (9) Style Cat (6) Style Cat (5) Style Cat (4) Style Cat (1)

I always see her at work in the trade shows whether it’s at Rustan’s @rustansph at Manila Fame @manilafame or at MaArte @maartefair and she’s so soft spoken and quiet. But having her all to myself reveals a super funny, super down to earth and super nice lady  Enjoyed so much with her. I saw Carissa when she first started Beatriz @beatriz_accessories 4 years ago and today she’s already international.

Kit and Ace

 Love this brand Kit and Ace @kitandace!  Comfortable basics/plainsKit and Ace (6)

 Kit and Ace @kitandace

“Shannon is married to JJ’s father, Chip Wilson, the founder of lululemon. During their time spent travelling abroad and living internationally, JJ and Shannon recognized a void in the luxury apparel industry. After spending years dressed head to toe in stretchy performance wear, they were looking for clothing that offered the same functionality but that met their desire for sophistication, style and luxury. Since they couldn’t find what they were looking for, they created it.

Shannon’s institutional knowledge and experience in product design teamed with JJ’s insights into fashion and retail have culminated into the vision that is Kit and Ace. Their plan is to deliver innovative products that provide comfort and ease of use to the wearer, while still offering the style and quality of the luxury brands they love.” ( Source : Kit and Ace website )

Kit and Ace (1)Kit and Ace (2) They always have this brochure which is their “The List” and here you will find their recommended spots to dine and entertain yourself in the area where the store is located. So since this is Burlingame, the list is for the Burlingame area and its nearby surroundingsKit and Ace (3) Kit and Ace (4)  Time is Precious. Love the shopping bags!
