kate spade outfit of the day- Emerald Isle Embellished Kimi Cardigan



I felt Christmasy today so I went with a red and green motif!  I wore the Embellished Emerald Isle cardigan over my silver DKNY shift dress with green tights and silver/grey shoes with fur flowers.  Yes, you saw that right, fur flowers.  They are really unique and interesting.  I wish I had taken a close up of them for you.  The top photo is with the flash so you can see the shiny dress and sparkle on the cardi.  The flash makes me look fatter but I wanted you to be able to see that the dress was silver and not a dull grey.  I hope to get a better camera for christmas (i hope my husband sees this!).  I never wear this dress so I kind of forced myself to come up with an outfit pairing it with something kate spade so I would like it better.  I probably could have skipped the green tights and done a grey but, It is December after all, and I can do that in January...

Hi!

I found your blog through Kate Spade Love Affair --

I'm really enjoying your KS outfits and would love to get some KS clothes also --

How are the KS sizes? Would it be safe to order them online or is it better to try them in stores?

Thanks!

Tin,
I just love Kate Spade Love Affair!I think that the kate spade sizes are pretty true to size. They used to be smaller but recently when they released the apparel line to retail stores they began to "vanity size" the clothes a little more. I am working to fill my closet! The outlet and ebay really help me out with that! I love getting things on sale. That means you can get lots more!
Thanks for your comment!

Hi, Sandee!

Thank you for the top re: Ebay -- though it's hard to find something in my size because I'm a size 10.

I hope you don't mind that I drop in on your site from time to time. It's lovely to see you wearing your KS skirts and dresses. ^_^

There are several lovely things in size 10 that are on eBay! If you check everyday or have an email sent to you when something is listed in your size, you can stay aware of the great deals available! I check my eBay search email every morning for the new items just in case there is a buy it now for something at a great price and I can grab it before someone else! yay eBay!

Always great to see more Kate Spade fans!

As for clothing sizing, I think it's always best to get actual garment measurements when you can. I've found the recent Kate Spade clothes to run more on the larger side. I'm sort of between sizes and find I nearly always need to size down in KS.

Good luck! :D
