Convertibles are here!

Our new Convertible bags allow customers to enjoy two bags in one. This is great for both your convenience and your wallet. There are two different types of convertible bag styles in this collection: the Allie and the Chloe. The Allie converts from a clutch to a shoulder bag or a crossbody. The Allie also comes with an interchangeable top flap in a different pattern to seamlessly switch from day to night, or to simply change up your look. The top flap can be easily removed and converted into a whole other bag using the second flap and the removable shoulder strap.

The second convertible bag in this collection is the Chloe, which is a crossbody bag that incorporates a detachable bracelet in the shoulder strap. This bag allows you to keep the bejeweled bracelet intact in the strap, or you can remove it and wear it on your wrist to complement the bag and add a little bling to your overall look. The new 88 convertible bags are fashionable, functional and unique. Perfect for transitioning through different occasions, these bags allow you to purchase one bag while being able to use it in several different ways

88 + Green Saturday

 

We recently attended a vegan summer marketplace called Green Saturday as a vendor to promote our new Fall collection. The event was on August 20th at Alpine Village in Torrence, CA. Hosted by Vegans from Mars (Disneyland Vegan) & Kingdom23, Green Saturday is an end of summer vegan & cruelty free marketplace. The event featured cruelty free gifts, vegan food and snacks, clothing, accessories, jewelry, art and crafts and vegan beer.


FOR A GOOD CAUSE:

A portion of proceeds from Green Saturday LA were donated to the Whiskers & Tails Foundation, a local organization that rescues and adopts various animals, from cats and dogs, to ducks, pigs and goats.

Whiskers & Tails Foundation was founded on February 1, 2005 by Lynne Amano, a vegetarian. Their primary mission is to rescue dogs, cats, to assist needy pet owners, to educate the general public on the humane treatment, and care of all animals.

Whiskers & Tails Foundation believes in the spay and neuter of all animals, especially feral cats. They also rescue barnyard animals and educate the public on backyard wildlife.

Their goal is to prevent animal cruelty and to make their lives better while with us. They continue to form relationships with local animal shelters, rescue groups, individuals, volunteers, city, county organizations and supporters.

One of their programs assists senior citizens with their companion animals by finding temporary pet housing, while the owner is hospitalized, in recovery, or permanent homes in cases of the owner’s terminal illness, or death.
