It’s taken me a while to decide how I feel about Kate Spade’s newest venture: Saturday. I’ve loved the Kate Spade brand since I was a little girl, and it’s been fun to watch it grow and change over the years. Saturday, rightfully so as a separate brand, is entirely different from anything I’ve seen Kate Spade present before. With very bold, graphic prints, it definitely does not speak to the “classic” styles you see as a part of the original Kate Spade line. But you have to admit, while exactly full of timeless pieces, the new brand is rather fun…::
[ Slip Neck Tee, $30 // Shirttail Tank, $30 // Gather-Round Top, $85 ]
[ The Skinny Jean in Highlighter Pink, $110 // Easy-Tapered Pant, $120 // The Skinny Jean in Yellow, $110 ]
[ iPhone Case in Fine Fellow, $25 // iPhone Button Stickers, $15 // Sneaks by PF Flyers, $65 ]
[ Small Top-Handle Satchel, $140 // Custom Weekender, $280 // Bucket Bag, $120 ]
[ Sexy Back Dress in Cubic, $180 // Scoopback Dress, $140 // Sexy Back Dress in Abstract, $180 ]
Talk about brights! I’m curious to know if their trademark highlighter yellow, pink, and black + white will stay the primary colors of the brand, or if they will eventually mix things up. And if anyone has made a purchase and can speak to the quality of the products, I’d love to hear!
What are your thoughts on the newest member of the Kate Spade family?
I don’t do well in heels, or really any sort of platform shoes. But I just cannot get wedges off my mind this spring! Rounded up some of my favorites for a shoe-themed Friday’s Fancies.

[ Carmelita Heel, Kate Spade, $258 ]

I just discovered this short film made for Kate Spade a couple years ago & felt the need to share. It is simply irresistible :)
this is the story of a charming girl
she laughs out loud, sings off key and believes in taking chances
she is quick and curious and playful and strong
she lets her imagination run away with her
she has never been one to stick to convention
she is fond of daydreams that take her places
she can order a cocktail in six different languages
she feels that understated is overrated

If you’ve been here before, my weakness for kate spade New York should come as no surprise to you. I’ve been a little bit in love with the brand since I was about 9 years old, visiting Canal Street in New York City for the first time (so yes, fine, the first Kate Spade bags I fell in love with did happen to be well-designed knockoffs… minor detail). Over the last twenty years, the brand has seen some changes, specifically in creative direction, with Deborah Lloyd replacing Kate herself as the new Chief Creative Officer after Fifth and Pacific Companies bought the brand in 2007. Yet they have remained true to their colorful roots. Things We Love commemorates the 20th anniversary of Kate Spade, showcasing all of the little elements that inspire the company’s persona and designs.
From polka dots to cocktails, each chapter is dedicated to a single love of the brand and team. The book is absolutely beautiful, and I think I could flip through it a dozen more times and still find new pieces of vibrant inspiration.
