Guest Post from Color Me Courtney!

I wanted to introduce you to another kate spade-aholic!  I met her last year when her boyfriend purchased one of my Katie skirts as a gift.  She is super cute and her blog is really inspirational!  I asked her to do a guest post featuring the red and white striped Katie skirt that brought us together.  She went above and beyond with an amazing post with tons of styling ideas! I hope you love her as much as I do and the cute outfits she has put together.
xoxox,

Sandee, Its a rare day when I see a blog as cute and informational and inspiring as yours, but clearly this is one of those days! Courtney! Luv ya! That was amazing! You remind me of the fabulous Kate Spade girls at my local store, I swear they are a special breed, you girls are all fabulous and Sandee's skirt looks AMAZING on you. I have to say, that red polkadot/striped skirt was SO unexpected and just jaw dropping awesome!! (Red is my favorite color too :) Thank you Sandee and thank you Courtney! Looking forward to reading more posts! Sandee, I love all your dress up pics, I rarely get a moment to comment, but I do my best to check in a couple times a week! Thank you for all the effort you put into this special blog of yours. Hugs to you both!!

I like Courtney's blog a lot. I actually have a question at Courtney since she works at KS - Courtney, what type of discount do employees get on merchandise at KS? I ask because I hope to work there this summer. I love KS and own over 35 handbags. I could really use the discount!

Thanks for sharing Courtney's blog! This was perfect timing as I just received both of my Katie skirts. I wore the black and white one to an interview for a promotion and landed the job! I think the skirt won me the promotion :)
