i used to dream kate spade, like in college, then i thought it was lame, now it's appealing again, in that wouldn't-it-be-fun-to-be-ladylike-upper-east-side way...and she makes it silly and fun (and kinda expensive). i give in! can't pull it off, but it's fun to look at! i also pick the more conservative/less-fancful stuff...if you want more fanciful/polkadot/day-glo/flowers-everywhere stuff, go to their website! here's the "up to 75% off" sale page.
i'm mostly listing sale items from their website, so they're reasonably priced
always a season behind, then you have some money in the bank
