Hello Closet, Meet Kate ... Kate, Meet Closet...
**UPDATE: KateSpade.com is having an extra 25% of sale right now for the next week!! No code needed and Free Shipping, too! Happy Shopping!**
A few weeks ago during Kate Spade's Friends and Family event, even though I said I wasn't going to (HA!) I ordered a few bags that were already on sale, plus got the extra 30% off, to try out. I ended up keeping all but one (DOH!) and these are the ones I kept...
I got this one in gold leather and it also comes in black. I like the size of this bag for when I don't have a toddler in tow. The shoulder strap is just long enough to make it easy to carry. LOVE this bag and get tons of compliments! The gold isn't too glitzy or shiny for daytime use.
I really wanted a pink bag, and fabric and style seemed a little nicer and special than just the regular smooth nylon bags. The magenta color is good for all year around and because this only has limited leather accents, it's lighter weight than most of my Michael Kors bags of the same size.
When I saw this color online, I wasn't so sure. but in person, it's an amazing orange that will take me from Spring through Fall! This has been so useful already. I carried this for the KY Derby, plus I use it all the time when I need to transport my laptop + other stuff, and when I'm heading to room-mom meetings for my son's school which involve me bringing a binder along with a bunch of other things with me! The pink printed lining is a really great, fun touch! This is the best deal I got by far, as the original price was over $300 on this and I got it for $121!
So I am now obsessed with looking at the KateSpade.com sale section as the prices are WAY better than the sales you find in department stores (at least what I've seen) and there are plenty of cute styles to choose from! Like I needed another store to get me in shopping trouble!
That's it for now! Coming soon, a little-less-exciting Vera Bradley diaper bag review!
