My first ever splurge on myself (I've splurged numerous times for the kids) and it is beautiful -- and, more importantly, it makes me happy seeing it.
What I love about Kate Spade are the little details -- the stripe-y tissue to protect the contents of the package. And the dustbag with a little thought from Kate Spade.
And the bag -- the bag was breathtaking. Nice weight and nice color. (Even my mom noticed my bag and complimented me on it.)
I've been using it every day since it came -- and I love it! It's a nice size and holds all of my things (and my kids things as well!)
I was worried that the black and white would be hard to match outfits with (and slightly regretted not getting the mustard or the green -- which would have been easier to) -- but it wasn't! It goes with everything! (Well, maybe not everything ... but in the 3 days that I've used it, I've had no problems.)
I also got a wallet --
It's a Jane Street Neda in Green with Eggplant. Again, I worried about the style (notice how much I worry?) -- it's a zipped-type and I wasn't sure how easy/hard it would be to access my cards and stuff. And there was no place to put a picture of the kids!
But I've grown to like it and appreciate it -- I don't have to worry about Anya touching the money in my wallet! (Or pull out cards and misplace them)
Trust me, the purple looks so, so nice! (Now I am tempted to get a purple bag!)
