Do you wear Kate Spade? I seem to have a thing for it lately. Last week I showed you my fun, new Kate Spade Peacock tee. Now here’s a look at another Kate Spade top I bought that’s also kind of quirky.
You’ve probably noticed that fringe, tassels, and pompoms have been really popular lately. I’ve seen them used on bags, shoes, on the hemlines of tops and dresses, but this is the first time I’ve seen tassels used around a neckline. Very clever Kate Spade!
Fashion should be fun, so when I was trying to decide whether to buy this, I thought, What the heck, it’s different- time to try something new.
Now, normally I don’t buy Kate Spade clothes. I love their accessories; their jewelry is fabulous, and the bags and shoes are great too! But generally, I find their clothes a bit too little girly for me, even though I always love to go in and look at all the jaw-dropping colors and whimsical styles.
I don’t know if I just got lucky this time, or what, but it just goes to show you that you should always keep an open mind because you can sometimes find really cute pieces in places you thought you might never have.
I’ve nicknamed this cute Kate Spade Top my Lion top because all those tassels around the neck make me feel like I have a mane. I am Leo after all, so I guess it’s really quite appropriate. (LOL!)
The Paprika color is divine, but this silky blend sweater also comes in a stunning cobalt blue.
For me, the thing with this top is that I would always wear it with something very sleek and tailored. If I wore this top with a big full skirt, lots of layers or loose pants, I think I would look like a circus clown.
It’s a fine line when you are wearing something a little quirky like this, at least for me. I’m not one for an over the top quirky look. I like clean lines, classic shapes and just a small twist in the way of an interesting detail, like this neckline.
It’s hard to see my gold pave earrings here, but they are Kate Spade too, and I LOVE THEM! They are classic but modern and they go with everything. Check them out in the shop the post below.
My quilted bag is by Michael Kors- just got it too. It soft and super light, which is great considering it has a gold chain and chain purses are usually heavy. This bag looks very expensive in person like a Chanel or Dior, but it’s not. I’m very impressed with it. You can wear it over your shoulder like this ( double chain) or as a crossbody ( single chain).
Finally, I just wanted to mention my Blush colored suede sandals. They are from a Canadian brand Wishbone Collection at Browns, but there are lots of other great suede slides out there, too.
