Meet The Team
Founder & Designer
Designer and Artist Kaylin Fox also known as “Kay” is inspired by the resort culture of the Californian and European coast. At an early age, Kaylin’s eye for beauty was formed by the natural landscape and lifestyle of her childhood spent in Marin County California. Later, as a young woman, she moved to Santa Barbara California, commonly referred to as the American Riviera, and found that surrounding herself with beauty promoted the best sense of personal confidence and empowerment that she needed. In 2013, Kaylin founded “A Blonde and Her Bag,” to combine her passion for all things beautiful and her love of jewelry and to encourage women to be confident every day. Today the impeccably accessorized owner has offices, a warehouse and production facility in beautiful Sausalito, CA including a showroom named the “She Shed”, available for wholesale and appointment only showings. Kaylin still to this day influences and designs all pieces and personally oversees all production pieces that have the A Blonde and her Bag name.
Kaylin currently resides in a bungalow overlooking the water in beautiful Mill Valley, CA. Alongside her loving Danish speaking viking husband Eric and their four legged children Pomeranian Chloe-Bell and boxer George the dynamic duo. You can often find George sprawled out on the pink velvet office couch, and is eager to greet anyone walking into the pink offices including UPS who always has a dog biscuit in hand. When she’s not designing and developing your favorite pieces, Kaylin enjoys entertaining and cooking, spending time with her loves and all activities that involve al fresco dining and champagne. She’s a fashionista at heart and is a sucker for pretty much anything pink and/or sparkly, tassel banners, Jazz music, Rent the Runway, Caviar, Aperol Spritzes, and anything and everything “Houswives of.”
Favorite A Blonde and Her Bag piece: Her first design—the classic Torrey Ring in Labradorite because of all the color, the meaning (to manifest your dreams and goals) it looks good on everyone and it's the piece you are sure to get compliments on (check out).
Favorite drink: Krug Champagne with caviar and aperol spritz with mint and dehydrated oranges.
Favorite Thing about being apart of the #Blondesquad: Working with so many amazing talented women and being creative everyday.
