I enjoyed looking at the new spring looks from Kate Spade. I have seen the clothing before on preview sites but  I like the way KS has put together outfits that look fun, unique and feminine. I chose a few of my favs to show you.  Visit to see more of the collection.  I am going to let these be the inspiration for my spring wardrobe.  I’m headed to my closet to see what I already have that will have this same vibe!!!

New Dress for Symphony Date

In Fashion, kate spade on January 21, 2010 at 9:50 pm

Mark and I are going on an afternoon date this Sunday to the Houston Symphony at Jones Hall.  I had to get a dress for the occasion, of course.  It is black which is fitting for the Symphony and Kate Spade which is fitting for me!  I am going to wear black heels and add hot pink tights if the weather is cooler.  All I need is to decide is what sweater/jacket/wrap I am going to wear because Jones Hall is like a freezer.  I should probably bring a blanket instead of a sweater but that wouldn’t be glamorous, would it?  I am going to wear this dress to church in the morning on Sunday so I may opt for my little black cardigan that I can carry along and use when needed.

Love this Scarf!

This is a picture of Kate Spade in the most fun scarf/wrap I have ever seen!  I love the colors and the way it works so beautifully over a simple dress.  This is true Kate Spade style!  I am inspired!

Madeline and I popped into the Kate Spade store in the Houston Galleria recently and viewed, touched, drooled over the new spring line.  A few of my favorites were:

Spring Inspiration from Kate Spade

This dress is from the holiday collection but it has so much spring appeal I had to blog about it.  I am all about year round dresses since moving to Texas with it’s milder climate.  This dress is perfect for Texas in every season!  The lace is beautiful and so vintage inspired!  I just love the ribbon at the neckline and the A-line cut of the dress.  While I do not own this dress at present, I plan on scooping it up when it goes on sale.  If not, at least I can dream about it for a little while.  Look at to see the up close and personal view of this super dress.

Take a Look at Lonny Magazine!

This morning I have been enjoying Lonny Magazine!  It is a super online decorating magazine with great “do-able” ideas.  This issue has a really inspiring black and white stripe bathroom that I would love to copy.   There is also a super article on the Kate Spade Store in New York.  It tells you how to decorate your home with ideas from the store and little tips to get the same look.  I am taking some of the ideas and using them right away!  I don’t decorate with color so I have to use black and white instead.  I am going to use lots of texture and pattern( stripes, damask and polka dots) to make the impact that color would have in a space.  The New Year is such a fun time to make small changes in your home decor.  All the Christmas decor is gone and you have a clean blank slate to work with.  Just moving the furniture around can really make a difference.  I just flipped my duvet over to solid white and changed the pillows around with ones from another room to completely change the look of my bedroom.  For FREE!  I can’t wait to try something else…
