The Borrowed Babes Feature: Local Jacksonville designer Katherine Way
Katherine Way Warehouse Sale - Thursday, July 27th - Saturday, July 29th 2017
You know these Borrowed Babes shop on a Budget, but we LOVE Quality Designers!
That's why we want you to know Katherine Way! Katherine Way is a Jacksonville based women's designer who we ADORE. Not only is she an absolute darling to be around, but the story of how she started her business is so inspiring to all us #BabesWhoHustle out there. She's been in business for the last five years and is out there politely kicking butts and taking names with her sweet southern twang. Not only is she growing the business year over year but she is doing something most businesses don't dare dream of these days. Making everything here in the USA. Side Note: Katherine was just named a Jacksonville Business Journal 2017 Women of Influence for all of her #BossBabe ways so get inspired, ladies.
Her designs are carried in over 250 boutiques and golf clubs around the country, meaning someone near you probably has her bright, playful, and stylish dresses, pants, and tops AND if they don't, ask for her.

If online shopping is more your jam, she can dress you from head to toe from her online store at Katherine Way.com. Click here to start browsing now!
About Katherine Way:
The Katherine Way woman wants to look stylish and feel confident! With their custom blended fabric, every Katherine Way piece fits beautifully on the body to ensure Mother Nature’s imperfections don’t get in the way of a great look. Her apparel allows women to embrace their fashionable side with versatile, easy to wear styles that easily transition throughout even the busiest of days. Whether you are going to work, a family dinner, a charity event, or even a party on the beach, a Katherine Way woman always looks put together and polished.
Who doesn't want to have all of that in one piece?
Jax is Rad...
We love shopping local when we are able to do so #ILoveJax. Katherine's operations are all based out of our hometown of Jacksonville, Florida and her flagship boutique is here at the beach. (Don't worry if you aren't Florida based...you can still purchase her items online.) For us, the local aspect wasn't the only selling point. These pieces are easy to care for, easy to wear, and ideal for travel. If you hop on their social, you'll see the hashtag #WaytoDressforTravel. Katherine Way items are perfect for travel because they are compact, light, and wrinkle resistant. (Hello...several pictures you're looking at of me in my Katherine Way were taken all over the world. Mexico. Dubai. Milwaukee - Isn't Milwaukee on par with Mexico and Dubai? Insert all the laughter emojis here.)
As if that isn't enough, they are 100% sourced, designed, and made in the USA. AND as an added BONUS, her designs are ideal for someone who loves the sun because all of her technologically advanced fabric has built in UPF 50+. Which, for a pale girl like me who lives in Florida is ideal!
Do You Love to Save?
We're hitting you with Katherine Way this week because one of her biggest sales event of the year kicks off this week in Jacksonville, Florida. Her semi-annual warehouse sale launches Thursday evening and you can get her amazingly fabulous items for super low prices. (THIS HARDLY EVER HAPPENS SO SHOP EARLY AND SHOP OFTEN.) The Thursday night event (Thursday, July 27th from 5-8pm at 11653 Central Parkway, Jacksonville, FL 32224) will feature all of her dresses, tops, shorts, and pants along with fabulous people, wine, and lite bites.

Quality and Versatility
We love Katherine for several reasons, but one of the main reasons is the high quality in which her items are made. You will not find a better, more comfortable and versatile product on the market. Her items are perfect for you, your Mom, your grandmother or even your daughter. (No, she doesn't make girls dresses but if you want the inside scoop her Big Sur tops make the perfect little dresses for the little ones in your life. And with the discounted prices at her warehouse sale, you can have the perfect Mommy & Me outfits for your next IG shoot. You're welcome.) They are also incredibly easy to care for. You can toss them in the wash and hang dry. They will go from soaking wet to totally dry in four hours. #LaundryBoss
Babes, don't be afraid of a little color and brightness in your life. They are surprisingly versatile and easy to pair with casual and dressier items. Below are some examples of the various ways I wear Katherine Way. I've paired it with sneakers, flats, & heels; paired it with pants, shorts, and jumpers AND even worn a dress with a skirt to make it look like the dress was just a top. The possibilities are endless.

My Favorite Picks for the Warehouse Sale:
Below are some of my favorite picks for the warehouse sale. BUT like I mentioned earlier, Shop Early and Often. They are only available while supplies last!
Tips for Shopping Katherine Way
Just a heads up ladies, her sizes are generously cut. They are comfortable, but flattering. Her sizes on all items run XS - 2XL. The size charts are online under each item, but if you want some perspective I typically wear a size 8-10 and am 6 ft. tall, sporting a Medium in Katherine Way. If you have a little junk in the trunk like me, you'll absolutely love the fit and flatter options that Katherine Way provides. Hey, Girl, Hey!
I'll be at the event on Thursday night broadcasting the fun on Facebook and IG live so make sure to tune in and check us out. Are you coming to join us for a shopping fiesta? If so, leave a note in the comments below so I can make sure and get you on our FB or IG LIVE.
