One of the brands I super love is Cath Kidston. I fell in love with the vintagefeel and floral prints of the items. I learned about the company from Daphne. It was the first time I liked flower prints since I used to hate them. I guess I’m getting old. I used to cringe at the thought of flowery fabric and thought it was too girly. And then when I learned about Cath Kidston, I changed my mind.
I couldn’t find Cath Kidston in Manila two years ago. I searched eBay for Cath Kidston bags and bought these two.
I use these two oil-cloth waterproof bags often because they’re very feminine and are waterproof. Imagine my excitement when my sister told me that Cath Kidston was opening in Bangkok, Thailand. Finally, a store I could actually visit someday. It opened earlier this year. Right now, there are three stores in Bangkok. I happened to visit two: Cath Kidston Mega Bangna and a section in Siam Paragon Mall.
Pretty stuff! I wanted to get everything but I found them expensive. It would be cheaper if I buy online instead of buying from the store. The only thing I bought was an eraser. Haha! It was actually my toddler who saw this for 80 Baht. It’s the only thing I could afford. 😀
By the way, this wasn’t the first time I saw Cath Kidston in Bangkok. When I went there last year, fake Cath Kidston bags were all over Pratunam. I was disappointed at that time because I just bought the original from the UK. I just hate it when fake versions of the brands I adore are everywhere.
You can find Cath Kidston in Thailand in Mega Bangna, Central Plaza, Central World, and Siam Paragon Mall. In the Philippines, I only know one store that sells Cath Kidston bags in Manila – Accessory Lab in Power Plant Mall – but there are some stuff listed in eBay.ph by different sellers.
The next time I’m in Bangkok, I hope to buy this:
I would have loved to be part of this too:
