type tuesday || kate spade new york

November 15, 2011

so, because a lot of awesomeness has been going down in the last few weeks, i haven't had a chance to talk about a little recent shop opening in kansas city. if you follow me on twitter, you heard all about it. if you don't, then let me just tell you that kate spade new york and my girl megan biram know how to throw a mean launch party!

no party is complete without macarons and legit coca cola with stripey straws.

the store is b-e-a-u-tiful right down to the artfully arranged boxes behind the counter.

and the rainbow striped floors . . . cute shoes don't hurt either.

yours truly was there to personalize kate spade totes! my job is tough, right? i look quite serious.

our extreme marker display and my larger than life fingernails even made it onto the ks instagram!

and just because that's not quite enough kate spade for one post, i picked out a few things i'm coveting right now for your entertainment. or holiday shopping. whatever.

This is all so beautiful. I love the colors, I love your handwriting--it's one of my favorite art forms. I'm off to admire the glitter heels...

Tobe, you’re so talented!

Kate Spade is a favourite of mine – especially the homewares. The polka dot series is to die for!
