My first “designer” bag purchase was in the late 90’s and was a grey nylon Kate Spade, which I just NOW parted with. Upon purchasing it, I swore that I would never need another bag again. Cut to the present time, where I now need a separate closet just for my bags. My promise may not have lasted, but Kate’s continuously fresh style certainly has. Ever since those days when that little black Kate label inspired me to be a more fashionable person, Kate Spade’s products and personal style have inspired me; never more so than now. She designs with a luxe, WASPy feel, but infused with a giant dose of humor and “joy de vivre”. Being serious is not on Kate’s pink polka dotted agenda. Think Palm Beach meets Greenwich, CT; classic meets modern.
