For the Love of Kate Spade

Those of you that know me know that I have an obsession with Kate Spade.

In my head, Kate and I were destined to be BFF. I see us sipping tea by the pool of her elegant Hamptons Estate gossiping about the happenings from the soiree the night before, shopping together and "lunching" weekly, her calling me for my opinion on her new lines. (Clearly, she didn't call me with some of her recent shoe designs, but I still love her.) We could be like Oprah and Gail.

I digress, I am in love with this bag. This is the Preston Hollow Large Flower Tote. (It also comes in the grass color that I love, but I already have a bag in that color.) Apparently Preston Hollow is an old part of Dallas with grand manors; if anyone lives in Preston Hollow and wants to invite me over, I accept! How could you not love this bright yellow leather. Doesn't it just make you happy? And at the affordable price tag of $495 ( is offering free shipping-how nice), it's really a wise investment.

Mr. Molly Lou feels that it is not a necessity (or even an option). He decided to point out that I just recently got a new one. While that is true, it was't ANYTHING like this one and it was 60% off. While I agree with the "not an ABSOLUTE necessity" bit, I do feel that it is a wise investment. I mean do the minis really NEED to eat as much as they do? Does Mini #2 NEED to wear diapers? They are really smart children, so when they are in college, will they NEED those extra textbooks?

If any of you are thinking of buying this for me as gift, know that will be GREATLY appreciated. We can have that BFF relationship that I spoke of earlier with Kate Spade. I mean while I don't have a Hamptons ESTATE, I do have a neatly organized, quaint* home. Perhaps we can't "lunch" they way I was referring to, but I do know of really good little local deli and there is this great little tea/lunch spot we could venture to. I mean who really NEEDS the estate, shopping, lunching when we can have just as much fun at home in our exciting lives. Think about it...

In other news, my good friend Perfectly Pleasant posted about this fab giveaway at Stroller Patroller. Stroller Patroller is doing a giveaway for a TORO stroller, liner, and adapter...WOW!!! I want that stroller. Mini #2 gets all of Mini #1's old things, so she "NEEDS" this chic stroller. Head over there to enter and tell her who sent you.

Have a great day! Cheers!

*Isn't quaint such a fun word sounding so much better than small, cramped, etc.


  1. it's a really cute bag..
    my husband would kill me if I bought it..:-)

  2. Oh, I totally agree. I mean what is more important - food, shelter, education? or a new Kate Spade bag? I think the answer is obvious ;-) Option - perhaps we could form a conglomerate to purchase the purse and then share the purse throughout the year? haha Glad you like the post about your shop. Hope you get some new customers!! xoxo

  3. Preppy 101 has a FABULOUS idea...great thinking! We can all pitch in together and buy the bag. We can then divide up weeks of use. I love the way you think!! :)

  4. are gonna get me in trouble because I just went to the Kate Spade website!! So many pretty things I want!! LOL Go ahead, get the bag! Just don't tell Mr. Molly Lou I told you too! LOL It is a great bag though and I DO LOVE BAGS! :)

  5. I love your blog! You're so cute. I think that Preppy 101 and MLG have great ideas. We can create our own version of Bag, Borrow or Steal!


How I love comments...thanks for stopping by and sharing what you are thinking. Cheers!
