I love Kate Spade. I have always loved Kate Spade. When I was 14, I difficultly saved and collected around $120 and bought the perfect petite black nylon box purse on my family’s vacation to Siesta Key at the Saks Fifth Avenue in Sarasota. I was very adamant about buying my own handbag. This would have been in 2000 and the company has certainly changed in many ways since then. For me, their advertisements have certainly been working. I think they are lovely! I just saw one in Home & Garden last night presenting their dinnerware collection and sent out a tweet about it, minutes later, Kate Spade was following me on Twitter! With their clothing line, I think they are getting it. It is priced at the higher end of J.Crew (and/or the J.Crew Collection), but is even a little more bold with further vintage appeal. It is very Jackie O gone quirky and I love their “fall looks.” I have all of the Kate Spade lifestyle books: Manners, Style, and Occasions. And today, I’m sharing some of my favorites with you here for some fall inspiration during NY Fashion Week.
TREASURE HUNTING- Love the Madeline Dot Ruffle Placket Dress
BEST IMPULSE BUY- the fur - the Bisous Stella Chubbie adorable! Can’t wait to bring out my own gorgeous faux from last year (might have to wait awhile in Dallas!!)
CATCHING A MOVIE- how zany! With Beacon Hill Wendy’s Sweater Dress in RED. This girl is totally saying, “I can’t help it, I’m just fantastic!”
SQUEALING WITH DELIGHT- I love the interesting color combination. This is so me in the morning, driving, talking on the phone, drinking coffee… oops! xx to the BISOUS GLITTER TWEED DEBORA PEACOAT (vintage glam).. can’t beat charcoal and lilac this season!
OFF TO THE OPERA- love the green tonal argyle tights.. they have lots of colors to choose from.. beautiful! Love their color combinations. Would love to wear this to the new Dallas Opera House this fall? How’s that for opening night!
And, finally, HITTING THE ROAD- weekend trip to Austin anyone?
Check out all of the Kate Spade Fall Looks here and join me in swooning over the entire collection….
