Red and Black kate spade Capsule Wardrobe



I know that I was pretty goofy in that video, but I really had fun trying on all those outfits! Next time I am going to do a kate spade capsule with pink and green.  I have so many pink things I can't wait to show you the outfits!

Just to recap:
I had 2 skirts and 2 tops and one sweater all in a red and black color story.  I added in a pair of jeans and an extra cardigan to mix it up and make more outfits.  You can also add a dress to the capsule to increase the options.  Every time you purchase something for that capsule, you increase the wardrobe options exponentially.  I am planning on getting the kate spade Intarsia bow cardigan in red to add to this Red and Black capsule for my Valentine outfits.  I can wear my black Briella dress with the red tights and shoes too! Then I would be able to carry my Clyde bag every day!

Hope you didn't laugh a me too much!  Live Colorfully!

What a great video Sandee -- you have such a cute voice and demeanor! And you put out a great set out of outfits from that small capsule collection, you really showed each piece's versatility! :)

Goldenmeans, You are my new best friend! I was so worried, I didn't hear a single thing from anyone (crickets chirping) after posting that video. I thought I had really scared everyone off with my crazy self! I am glad you commented, that was so sweet!

Live Colorfully!

You are too cute! I loved seeing the different outfits you put together. I actually laughed out loud when your expression/voice changed when you said "I want it so badly" (in regards to Emerald Isle skirt) because I do the same thing!

I can't wait til your pink capsule! I hope you use the Tutti fruitti skirt, that's my favorite!

jca, Thanks! I have the pink capsule all ready and in the closet and YES I am using the tutti-frutti skirt! My outlet still has some and I was so tempted to buy another just in case...It was so cheap! I am mixing the pink with green but I could do another mixing pink with something else. Any ideas?

Ahhh do you remember what sizes your outlet has in the skirt? I went to an outlet and sadly it only had purses :( (but I did end up getting those cute bow earrings!)

I love pink and purple together (just thought of it because of the colors in the skirt)

jca, the outlet had several left today. I didn't look at the sizes. They will ship it for $5. You can ask them if you can use the 20% VIP discount on the order too you get it when you register as a vip on the houston premium outlets website. Go on the kate spade site and look at the list of outlets phone numbers mine is Houston, TX. If they don't have it, you could try the others! Good luck!

Thanks so much! I will call tomorrow. I think they can look up the skirt in the system if they have one of the skirts there right? (say if it isn't in my size).

Royaltygirl said...

I don't think the outlet has a system. They usually go looking in the store when I need something, not on the computer. I think you have to call each store yourself. They may call one for you if they are not busy but mine is usually really BUSY!

Hi Sandee:

I love kate spade, but so far I only have purchased purses, wallets, jewelry and of course shoes! I am thinking about purchasing some clothing. Do you think that kate spade runs true to size, or should I order a size up? down?

How does it compare to the sizing of ann taylor?

Thanks so much,
Alison

PS: I loved your video! You gave me some great ideas! :)

Royaltygirl said...

Alison, Thanks for your comments! I think kate spade clothing runs true to size or a little large. I always try the smaller size first and usually it works. It is very much like ann taylor's sizing! I always go smaller in the sweaters in both brands. You can find lots of kate spade deals on ebay if you look often. It is a good way to get started collecting pieces. I started with a coat because
I wore it over everything. After that I got some skirts and then a few dresses. Now I don't buy much else from other brands except a little J Crew and some Target essentials. I have an outlet nearby so I shop lots there!
