Meet: Courtney

I'm Courtney. I live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband and our tiny Yorkie. I'm passionate about justice and founded an anti-human trafficking organization a few years ago. I also live an intentional, holistic lifestyle because I want to live out my values in a tangible way.

Your Ally in Black suits you so well. Was it love at first sight?

It definitely was love at first sight! I remember walking into the store and seeing the O My Bag display. While there were several that I really liked, the Ally stood out to me. It's exactly what my wardrobe needed at that time. 

How long have you been together?

Ally and I have been friends since 2015. She was my Christmas present that year!

It's wonderful to see sustainable shoppers like yourself. What's the green scene like where you're from?

NYC has a large and growing green scene. There are zero waste shops as well as easy access to compost, community gardens and food co-ops. Our neighborhood also has several ethical, sustainable boutiques, which makes shopping easy!

Where do you usually wear your Ally to?

I typically wear my Ally in the evenings or during the weekends. Whether I'm traveling, going out to a nice dinner, meeting up with friends or taking a walk around the city, she's a great companion.

At O My Bag, we have a real passion for helping people and the planet. What are your values?

My values are very similar. They can be summed up with loving people really well and caring for the planet. I believe that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect and to live without exploitation, abuse or harm. This is why I give so much thought to the things I purchase, the way I eat, and how I live my life.

If you had a magic O My Bag that could carry anything in the world, and it wouldn't get heavy, what would you choose to keep with you?

I'm the type of person that always has a drink in my hand so I'd for sure want to carry all of the necessary supplies needed to whip up a matcha latte, coffee, or any other drink I might be craving at the moment!

And finally, we want to say a big thank you for choosing to carry an O My Bag. Your support means the world to us. We hope you'll love your O My Bag for many years to come!

Meet: Kyoko

I am Kyoko Koyama, Specialty (Multi brands) shop manager. I love watching films and TV dramas.

You and your Audrey look great together. How long have you had her for?

Two years.

What's your favorite thing about your Audrey?

Switchable belts, so thanks to that, Audrey would suit both high-fashion/hip outfits and classy styles. 

We love your fashion! What's your top styling tip?

I freely choose my favourite outfits, so I wear anything that I want to wear! Plus, I like to try various outfits and styling!

Do you have any more O My Bags on your wishlist?

Our goal is to make a positive difference in the world. What's yours?

My goal is to let Japanese customers know about O My Bag more and by doing that, helo contribute to the OMB brand goal as well. 

From all the bag brands out there, what made you choose us?

Because I agreed with your brand concept. In addition, love your designs and style!

We're so happy to see you rocking your O My Bag and want to say a big thank you for choosing to carry our brand. We hope to meet you in Amsterdam one day!

Thank you for choosing me and giving me a chance to join the brand 10th anniversary lookbook! I will keep pushing and showing O My Bag so that your brand can be more and more popular in Japan. Keep in touch!

Kyoko, Toyko, Japan
