Yay it’s Friday! We made it through another week! I feel like some weeks just drag more than others. This was one of those weeks unfortunately. Tuesday was a fun day though because it was my boyfriend, David, and I’s one year anniversary! He took me to a really nice restaurant here in Kansas City and we gorged on steak and some yummy spinach & artichoke dip. We did a wine tasting before hand to feel classy!
As a special present for me, David bought this gorgeous Kate Spade bag! How thoughtful and sweet is he?! I love the style of the handbag as it has gained popularity after Celine released similar (outrageously expensive) ones. My favorite part of it is how professional it looks! Plus, it’s roomy inside for my laptop, paper bag lunch, and all of my little makeup products that I stuff in there.
My boyfriend is also a smart shopper and got the bag at a Kate Spade outlet! I’ve taught him well. Having lived in many different places, I can honestly say the best (read: cheapest) outlets are in Florida and Texas. Some of the best things I’ve found at these outlets were not only sought-after but deeply discounted items. Everyone knows I love a good deal! One year I got my mom not one, but two pairs of Lucky Brand skinny jeans for a total of $49! *Happy dance*
Anyway, this Celine lookalike is so well-made and a beautiful addition to my Kate Spade collection of purses. Don’t worry, I got David a little something for our anniversary too- new Sperrys! His had seen better days. Enjoy your weekend! Get some sun!
Do you notice anything different about the blog today? Perhaps that it has a new name? That’s right! I’ve renamed this little blog of mine to “Witty N Pretty” and I couldn’t be happier. I mentioned in a previous post that I was going to start changing some things and I woke up today and decided I needed to make things happen. I was kind of nervous to do this but once I committed to the name and bought the domain name, I knew I had done the right thing. You’ll now find all of my posts on wittynpretty.com and my instagram account is @wittynpretty21!
On to the main event here, I was browsing Kate Spade’s website earlier and am thrilled by all the new arrivals! I thought I’d share a few of my favorites with you. Before I do, I’m wondering if any of you have noticed her new collection called ‘Madison Chaplin’ costs significantly more than her other collections? The tote bag I was looking at cost $1,198! Truthfully, I’m not sure what makes this collection better than the others but if you know, enlighten me!
Ok, how adorable is that ‘Mrs’ tote bag? I just love it! I’m totally jealous that I’m not at least engaged so I can buy that thing! Then again, if I were engaged at this point in my life, I would be too poor to buy it. The same goes for the ‘Cedar Street’ bag next to it, which looks an awful lot like a Celine purse. Coincidence? I think not.
My love of bows knows no boundaries. I really like this silk blouse for the office! The colorful stud earrings would brighten it up nicely. I think the best outfits have a neutral base but colorful accessories!
The last few things on my lust list for Kate Spade new arrivals are self-explanatory. Passport holder, need I say more? These sunglasses though, are perfect for my very round face. I hate “bug eye” sunnies and typically opt for glasses with some angles to them.
What are your favorite new arrivals?
