|Me in college on Thanksgiving wearing a "romper" I made from a tablecloth! Hilarious! |
They really were in style back then, I promise!
I am really having an identity crisis. I am getting older every year! I have been noticing that most of my readers and most of the kate spade girls I know are under 30. When I began my love affair with Kate Spade (it was capitalized then...) I was in my early 30's. At that time I was in the target age for the brand as they were going for ladies 28-58. These were the ladies who bought the bags, shoes and stationary. Since Deborah Lloyd took over in 2008, I noticed the age focus dropping considerably and now even my teenage daughter has a kate spade bag and dress. Many of my blog readers are young professionals recently out of college such as lawyers and teachers . Another group are the college students or law students who are in love with the kate spade new york look but it is out of their reach except as a gift on birthdays and holidays. They spend the rest of the year dreaming about ksny and finding the "look for less." So what about the older kate spade girl? Where is she? Do the bright colors scare her off? I went through a mostly black stage when I turned 39 where I gravitated to black and brown with only pops of color here and there. I wonder if there are any other girls over 40 who love the kate spade brand and dress accordingly. It is such a fun look, I wonder if the older crowd feels it is too young looking. I on the other hand am planning on being a kate spade grandma! I am going to be called "Glammy" instead of Grammy by my grandchildren. Of course I do have a few years to prepare for that...
I would love to know if there are any over 40 kate spade-aholics out there other than me!
Feeling Old but Colorful!
