Koto Bolofo for Kate Spade from Art Department on Vimeo.
The new signature kate spade collection is featuring the spade logo in a unique pattern. I guess that because Deborah came from Burberry with the signature plaid all over everything, even a bikini, that we can expect to see this new pattern on several items in the future. Did you notice the skirt in the video? I am in love with the bow ring on the snapping fingers at the beginning!!!
Today I am wearing my clock skirt from Anthro, I will post a pic when I get a chance later. I am headed to Stein Mart to use my 20% off coupon that I got for signing up for their email to buy a new cardigan sweater in the lovely shade of teal. and one in purple. and ruby. and maybe black. It depends on how carried away I get. The cardigans are my favorite shorter three quarter sleeve type with the loveliest fall colors I have ever seen.
I have a few things in the sale section of ksny that I want as well as a couple of full price options calling my name. What would you do? I need some advice from an outside source because my husband doesn't like apple and my daughter is getting an ipad 2 for her birthday+some of her savings. So they are biased. Do you have and ipad? When do you use it instead of a laptop? It wouldn't be the 3g version so I will just have wifi. I love my iphone and use it all the time to go online. Would I use the ipad instead?
thanks for your input!
This is the time of year to grab those good deals for next summer! It is when everything gets cheap because the shops have to get rid of everything to prepare for the holidays. Shop! Shop! Shop! I also like this time of year because it is my birthday on Oct. 1 and I get lots of birthday $$$ to spend at the kate spade store or online. I hope my outlet opens up by then because I will be ready to buy some new things. I have been in a lull for Aug. and Sept. not buying much because I have had to cut back (according to my Hubby.) I still owe him some $$$ but maybe I will get a reprieve for my birthday! hope hope hope.
Wishing you bouquets of sharpened pencils this fall!
Have a colorful day!
have a lovely day!

Check out the listing for Kate and Andy Spade's Southampton home. It has 8 bedrooms and a freestanding ballroom. It is so cozy and country feeling! I love the gardens. I wonder why they are selling. Maybe they found a better place or just never use it. Their New York apartment was featured on The Selby earlier in the year. It was so amazing and inspirational! Plum TV did an interview with Andy and Katie where they talk about the Southampton house and show off some of the interior. I think they had to "de-personalize" the house for selling purposes because the photos don't show all the fun touches that they had in the video interview. Their art collection is wonderful!

In an interview with In Style UK, Deborah Lloyd said: "As a Brit, I am thrilled to be opening two kate spade new york stores in London! It feels, in many ways, like the perfect homecoming for me. The two London stores will be our first major presence in Europe and will be the gateway to the rest of the continent."
There were even yellow taxis parked outside to give a nod to New York City. There is also another new kate spade shop in Covent Garden that is on Langley Court. To decorate the new stores, they used some of the ideas and decor from the much written about pop up shop in London in the spring. Instead of a flower painted floor, this time there is a real rug! The colors are bright and cheerful just like the kate spade brand.
“I think we have a unique sense of fun mixed with lady-like glamour,” Deborah Lloyd told The Telegraph. "We don't take ourselves too seriously and I think the Brits will appreciate that. We are also such a New York brand - so we'll bring a little bit of that spirit to London."
