Hi/Lo: Sexy Silver Shorts

When I found these elegant Kate Spade shorts, I couldn’t help but swoon. Imagine sipping champagne on a yacht in these bottoms, as your tan legs stretch out lazily… OK, so that isn’t quite my life, but a girl can dream. However, I will opt to wear the more affordable MinkPink version the next time…

It’s that time of year again! That is, time for the the human clothing hangers better known as models to strut down the catwalks of Lincoln Center in beautiful, expensive and sometimes absurd designer clothing, for the Fall 2014 runway shows. Each day, we’ll present to you a selection of noteworthy shows so that, eve…

NYFW Day 3-4: Our Favorite Shows (In GIFs!)

There are so many shows, and not enough hours in the day to possibly go to all of them. Good thing, then, that we’ve got your New York Fashion Week coverage down. We’re not even half way through day two, and there’s already been nearly three dozen shows. We’ve whittled it down to…

Brad Goreski Wrapped Around Your Little Finger

Okay, so ex-“Rachel Zoe Project” fashion fiend Brad Goreski might be the whiniest man on television. But his glasses are pretty sweet. And because Brad is Kate Spade’s newest brand stylist, his signature glasses are now memorialized in earrings, a bangle, a necklace, and this adorable ring. Take that, Rachel Zoe! [$48, KateSpade.com]…

New York Fashion Week Day 3: Kate Spade, Charlotte Ronson, Prabal Gurung And More

Saturday marks the third day of New York Fashion Week — and featured shows from Kate Spade, Rebecca Minkoff, Prabal Gurung and tons of others. While we were less than excited about the offerings at Charlotte Ronson (sort of tepid florals in a muted shades), Cushnie et Ochs collection of white, magenta and blue dresse…

Cheap & Chic: Kate Spade’s Hobo Bag, That A Real Hobo Might Be Able To Afford

Jessica loves this Kate Spade Cobble Hill Kori hobo bag. It’s very much in Jessica’s style — feminine, soft and classic. But she’s really not feeling the bag’s $478 price tag. So rather than go into major debt for a purse, we’ve offered to find her similar bags at a much more pleasing price point.

Zut Alors, A Cute T-Shirt!

Driven to outbursts of “%&@#!” and “@#$*!” when you look at the prices on Kate Spade’s goodies? Me, too, sadly. But their new “Pardon My French” T-shirt will apologize for you in advance with trademark Gallic politesse. Parlez-vous “adorable” is more like it! [$58, Kate Spade]…

Squee! Garance Doré Designed For Kate Spade

Kate Spade has it out for me.
That is the only possible explanation why they could have hired Garance Doré, a French style blogger and photographer, to design pieces for their fall line. Doré’s whimsical doodles are all over dresses, bags, and even an umbrella and iPhone case. The prices are as WTF as Kate…

Black And White And Read All Over

Stop the presses: this Kate Spade newspaper classified-printed iPad cover is a funky, literary take on the could-be-boring protective shield. Reading the fake classified ads like “Volunteers needed at the zoo” and “Found: spotted chihuahua” will keep you preoccupied when you’re out of a WiFi zone — not that you’d ever let that happen. While…

Beauty Test Drive: Kate Spade’s New Eau De Parfum, Twirl

Watermelon wouldn’t be our first choice for an eau de parfum. Who shops for fragrances thinking, “Hey, I’d really like to smell like a watermelon today?” To be more accurate, the official scents in Kate Spade’s new eau de parfum Twirl are “pink watermelon, blackberry and red current with additional notes of orange blossom, star…

The Kate Spade Wedge: The Politician’s Secret Wardrobe Weapon

Forget Hillary Clinton’s pantsuit (gladly) and Sarah Palin’s banana clips (done). Here’s a political fashion statement far more palatable and subtle. According to The New York Times, female politicians pay worship to a particular shoe, a Kate Spade wedge called the Halle. Apparently, they’re a bit of a thing in Washington (one congressional candidate tell…

A Pretty Place For Your Pennies

A penny for your thoughts? We’re thinking this Kate Spade coin purse is just about the cutest little accessory we’ve seen in a while. Especially considering that our loose change is usually relegated to the depths of our purses or the cracks in the couch. The quality pouch comes in two color schemes: choose from…

We all like looking sassy on a budget, but sometimes a splurge is in order. With this in mind, welcome to the first edition of Worth The Splurge, a primer to help you prepare for your next grown-up purchase.

Remember lusting over that boxy little Kate Spade purse that everyone was trying to get…

Did Kate Spade Steal The Book-As-Purse Idea?

There’s a big brouhaha going on right now over handbags that resemble books. Kate Spade will sell bags (above left) that look like well-worn novels starting this fall, and according to Salon’s Broadsheet, the preppy apparel company has been called “a big fat copycat” by handbag designer Olympia Le-Tan, whose similar “book bags” (above right)…

You’ll Be One Stylish Present Wearing Kate Spade’s Bow Accessories

While some clothing companies sew sequins on a sweater and call it holiday attire, Kate Spade takes a more original approach, turning the classic bows that get stuck on top of presents into hair accessories, ballet flats, necklaces, and, our personal favorite, rings. These aren’t accessories you’d wear year-round, but it sure would be fu…

Kate Spade “Tarrytown Stella” Shoulder Bag

We’ve always wanted a tiny handbag which would look good while bludgeoning purse-snatchers! (So what if identity theft is more en vogue than purse-snatching? Minor detail.) Behold this Miss Piggy pink-colored, leather shoulder bag, which should do the trick. At the very least, the next time we’re annoyed at our guy, can envision ourselves swinging…
