A happy surprise from Kate Spade

Oh Kate Spade, you shouldn’t have!  Up to 75% off final sale items for two days only, 8/21 & 8/22/12?  $5 ground shipping?  You really shouldn’t have!  No really, you’re killing me here Kate Spade.  I just bought final sale boots from Madewell yesterday, and now this “suprise” shows up in my inbox this morning?  I don’t know how my wallet (perhaps my new Kate Spade wallet) is going to survive this job.

 

Cambridge Stripe Small Karen – $99 ($275)

. . .

This purse is labeled as small, but it’s really not.  You can see a photo of it being held on the website, just click on the pic above.  The bag is nylon with cowhide trim, and comes in the two color combinations shown above.  Well, the SALE version of this purse comes in the two combinations shown above.  It is available in other options at full price.  Stripes are a pretty reliable pattern, and this purse is an easy way to add some into your wardrobe if you don’t like wearing stripes on your body.  Prefer polka dots?  Check out the Park Row Karen.

 

Zebra Jillian Dress – $159 ($438)

. . .

You could have so much fun experimenting with color and this dress.  The black and white zebra print provides a graphic backdrop for colorful shoes, jewelry, sweaters, you name it!  Or you can keep it clean and simple and just pair with metallic jewelry and black pumps.  A versatile, eye-catching piece.

 

Janis Skirt – $119 ($368)

. . .

I love pretty much everything about this skirt, especially the length.  It hits at such a spot that it elongates.  The fabric is a 50/50 cotton and linen blend.  The cream color will go with just about everything, from pastels in spring, primary colors in summer, and jewel tones in fall and winter.  I really want those shoes too!  And speaking of shoes…

 

Travis – $164 ($328)

. . .

Beautiful purple snakeskin and made in Italy.  These are going fast!  When I started this post, they had my size.  Now?  Gone.  Get on em’ if you want em’!

 

Kimmy – $134 ($298)

. . .

Again, going fast!

 

Ilene Cardigan – $89 ($245)

. . .

There are some great details on this cardigan.  Sweet little gathers at the arm cuffs, knitted detailing at the cuffs and waistband.  I also really like the dip on the v of the sweater, not super deep like a boyfriend cardigan.  This looks much more feminine.

 

Mele Dress – $159 ($398)

. . .

This all cotton little black dress is a pretty safe bet for any wardrobe.  The only concerning thing is that it comes not in number sizes, but small, medium, and so on.  Fit isn’t as guaranteed, but if you’re willing to take the risk, you could end up with a great addition to your closet!  May need tailoring.

 

Primrose Hill Goldie – $179 ($428)

. . .

Perfect for those of you who claim pink as your signature color.  Interestingly made out of goat leather (come on, their eyes are creepy), and has that classic Kate Spade bow.  Very girly.

 

Gold Coast Evangeline in Black or Cream – $169 ($395)

. . .

The coolest thing about this purse is the strap.  Want it long, just pull up on one of the leather handles and the chain slides through to make it longer.  Shorten it up by grabbing both leather handles.  Brilliant!  And classy looking to boot.

 

Mariner Bangle – $29 ($98)

. . .

Enamel and gold plating, this bangle will work year round.  Quite the markdown too!  Have any friends that love bangles?  Pick a few of these up as gifts.

The Kate Spade “Surprise” sample sale ends 8/22/12 at 11:59pm PT.  Items are going fast!
