Where oh where has my kate spade gone?

If I didn't find these in the kate spade new york section of Nordstrom.com , I would not believe that they were from kate spade!  I recognize a few of the shapes but the look is totally different!  I am hoping that this is just a problem with Nordstrom's photographs and this is not really what they look like in real life.  If anyone has seen these, please let me know.  I was so surprised to see these.  What am I going to wear if this is what kate spade is becoming????  I heard that ksny was trying to be "edgier" and get the younger buyers but this looks like my grandma's closet.  Sorry, I shouldn't say anything until I see them in person....









Now to cleanse your pallet, here are some pics from the earlier kate spade collections...









I hope that my favorite brand keeps the same look and feel because I have nowhere to turn if they change too much.  I have been looking at anthropologie and J Crew and I can't find a thing that I just love and can't live without.  Maybe it is for the best because I have been enjoying designing my own clothes anyway.

Have a super day and Live Colorfully!
xoxo,
Sandee

I can see why you're upset because this is a very different look, but MAN I love that second new dress!!

I've been slowly disappointed with KS each time the new wave of pieces come out. Gone are the days when I wanted everything in a collection (Fall 2009 is still my favorite). Now I scan and usually find a couple I like and maybe one I *have* to have. I guess is better for my bank account, right?

Like the recent Resort preview? I really loved the yellow and grey geometric print dress, but just realized it's reminiscent of a See by Chloe dress I already have (but dressier).

Wow. The difference is night and day. I've just started to admit to myself that I love Kate Spade becuase I keep finding things I love on Pinterest and then find out it's hers. The new stuff looks older and frumpier imo. Do Something!!! ha ha
