I strolled over to the charming Ananas pop up store yesterday and was personally greeted by the designer, Jennifer Lagdameo, herself! She was incredibly warm and inviting. It’s always great to meet designers because their passion for what they do is so infectious and enlivening.
Below is a picture of Jennifer posing next to a few of her creations. See the Coco cork clutch & Nealy bag above it on the shelf?! My hands were all over them yesterday.I felt like a kid in the candy store as I oogled all the bags on display. I even had the chance to get up close and personal with the new fall ’09 collection. You won’t be disappointed.
It’s time you see firsthand how beautiful these bags are and snag a few at their discounted prices! There’s no hiding the fact that we’re in a recession – so don’t be silly, take advantage of the sample sale prices. Plus, for every handbag sold, Trees for the Future will plant 1 tree in the Philippians. For every eco-collection handbag sold, Trees for the Future will plant 10 trees. Yes, I said TEN trees.
WHAT: Pop Up Store/Sample Sale
WHERE: 248 Elizabeth Street (bet. Houston & Prince)
WHEN: January 31-March 15 12pm-7pm
Also, after you pop into Ananas and satisfy your fashion craving, I highly recommend walking down the street to 229 Elizabeth for a delicious meal at Café Habana. This popular hangout is famous for its Cuban cuisine, lightweight prices, and now a new twist - it's become an eco-eatery! Biodegradable corn-starch cups and silverware, post-consumer recycled paper goods, and high-efficiency lighting are just a few of the changes taking place at the Café. So stop at the corner of Elizabeth & Prince and order a mojito while you’re there. They make some of the best!
