As a California girl, I love getting the chance to connect with other California brands. This state has so much to offer and I get so excited when I find something new to share with you all.
I recently connected with a fabulous brand, Frankie Cameron, which is a California-designed handbag company by Frankie Thieriot Stutes. Her bags are a little boho and very practical for everyday use. Each bag is designed using genuine quality leather, and in an environmentally conscious way by using the entire hide in the making of the bags. The result is a one-of-a-kind piece for your wardrobe with its color and texture. From larger totes and diaper bags to smaller cross bodies and clutches, Frankie Cameron has a purse for all of your activities.
If you tend to end up with a messy purse because of kids, makeup spills, etc., you will love these bags. They have zip-off liners inside that can be washed. So brilliant, right? And this liner comes in all Frankie Cameron bags making them all super practical for everyday use.
I’m currently using the Butterscotch Crossbody bags as an everyday bag and I am obsessed. It holds just enough , isn’t heavy and goes great with any outfit.
I also found the most unique antique/salvage shop in my hometown called JAB Creations and literally spent hours going through their treasures. They have everything from antique handles and knobs to lighting, wall signs, pieces of wood, and million other things. The store is complete chaos because it’s loaded with treasures, but it’s organized chaos.
About Frankie Cameron
Frankie discovered her need (and want) for a functional and fashionable diaper bag after having her first child in 2015. Convinced that women shouldn’t have to waste money on a bag they wouldn’t use after baby was grown, she set out to find a practical and stylish solution. A few diapers and bottle spills later, the idea of Frankie Cameron’s zip in zip out liners was born.
As an accomplished entrepreneur and marketing executive, Frankie’s ideas did not stop there! Frankie was determined to create a line that every woman could use and love daily. From the perfect work bag, to a washable makeup bag, to a statement piece for the campus fashionista, Frankie designed her collection to be ready for all stages of work, travel, and play!
Handcrafted from authentic cowhide and genuine leather, Frankie strongly believes in limiting waste by using the entire hide. As a result, each bag is unique in color and texture, making every Frankie Cameron a one-of-a-kind piece.
“I believe that every woman should have a bag that not only fills a need but also looks great doing it! I hope you will use your bag proudly on a daily basis in the pursuit of your dreams.” — Frankie Thieriot Stutes, Creator, Frankie Cameron
Giving Back – Project Night Night
I love that every Frankie Camera bag sold benefits Project Night Night, an award-winning Bay Area-based nonprofit organization that supports disadvantaged children. By equipping children ages 0-12 living in homeless and low-income situations with Night Night Packages, they will be ready to learn, feel less stressed, and be reminded of their value.
Project Night Night also sets a foundation for lasting change by providing meaningful, hands-on volunteer opportunities to hundreds of individuals and organizations each year.
Each Night Night Package contains a blanket, a book and a stuffed animal, all nestled in a special tote bag. Each bag is designed to be age appropriate, up to pre-teen boys and girls. Night Night Packages are tailor-made to give homeless and underserved children familiar objects of comfort to reduce stress and to strengthen the trust bond between the caregiver (the shelter) and the recipient (the child).
In addition, Project Night Night places 35,000 new books into the hands of children every year. Children’s book distribution programs such as Project Night Night’s were created to provide greater access to high-quality, age-appropriate reading materials for children from low-income homes as one effort to address the achievement gap. Project Night Night strives to give children something they can call their own, something that can give them that little bit of comfort and confidence to deal with what’s in front of them.
