Design Inspiration - Kate Spade


I loved reading a brief bit on her story here. Great example of someone taking a leap and following a dream. ^_^

But on to the inspiration. Of course the current designs offered by her former company aren't the same - but I believe they still carry that classic, modern touch that she became so famous for! She was a master at combining the simple, boxier styles of the fifties with bright, vibrant colors of today. In a lot of ways, we have similar style - even before I ever knew who she was someone mentioned that I reminded them of her! lol

Here are some of my faves from their current collection found at katespade.com...

Who can't use more ruffles in their life?

And um. Slimming and classic. I love this style of dress. They're sooo comfy, and look so cute. I love the unexpected  touch of golden yellow in the shoes...
Living in South Florida, I always have to be prepared for rain. So I'm always on the lookout for cute umbrellas! 
I can't believe I'm saying this, but these photos actually make me believe that I could pull off this short look for the summer...


Totally.
 Happy Saturday! Off to get my workout on so that I can pull it off! lol
