I received such response from the skirt I made and posted on http://www.katespade-aholic.com that I decided to make and sell them. I am doing them made to order so length and size will be just right!

I picked these up at the Coach store today! I love them so much! I couldn’t decide between the two colors so I got both of them. I am not a shoe girl and rarely find shoes that I like so these will have to last me a while. I hope you don’t get tired of seeing me wearing them…I don’t think I will ever get tired of wearing them! I am excited to wear the pink/purple pair on Sunday to church with my new kate spade Briella dress. They match perfectly! The black and red look great with my typewriter purse so they are going to get a lot of use. I like them with jeans too. They feel like slippers instead of shoes but I am not complaining about that. I really love Coach shoes. I didn’t know that until I saw these and tried them on. They were made for me!

These are the kind of shoes dreams are made of! Can you believe they are Coach and not kate spade? I totally am loving the contrasting bows and the little stripe. I don’t know which one I like better. What do you think?

It’s a happy ending to a sad story! I had this lovely skirt of my dreams in my shopping cart at Anthropologie.com for weeks and when I finally went back to buy it, it was GONE! SOLD OUT! I was so sad and bummed out. Well, today I sold a purse on ebay for $99 (good news in it-self) and was looking around for something to spend my $$ on when out of the blue, someone listed this skirt in my size as a buy it now for $99!!!! I snatched it up so fast I didn’t even know what happened and it was MINE! I can’t wait for it to arrive. Now I have to plan an outfit around it. Any ideas what I should wear it with? I know that I will wear my grandmother’s watch necklace around my neck and maybe some other necklaces too. I am so happy!!!!

Today I am wearing an outfit that is an example of “low end” looking like “high end”. The entire outfit cost only $72! Crazy, right? Shoes and jewelry included! The sweater and necklace are from Forever 21,the dress from Target and the shoes were also from Target off of the clearance rack. I ended up taking off the belt and using a ribbon to keep the black going. After seeing the pic I thought the belt was too much.

I have found a skirt I would like to add to my birthday wish list. It is the Lost In Time Skirt from Anthropologie. It is so cute with a bunch of clocks all over and I love the black background! What do you think? I have wanted it for at least a month now…

What a sad day is was when I received my Kate Spade polka dot Jillian dress in the mail! It was COUNTERFEIT! Can you believe it? I couldn’t. It is awful that someone is copying Kate Spade dresses and selling them as authentic on eBay. To the untrained eye, the dress was not obviously a fake but with my “super Kate Spade vision” I could tell that there was something fishy going on. The finishes were not the usual French seams and fine stitching with silk thread. The cut of the Jillian dress is more of a boat neckline with a scoop in the back where the counterfeit dress was slightly scooped in the front and not as scooped in the back. The fabric was also thinner silk with a much lighter hand than the Kate Spade polka dot fabric on my other polka dot dress from the fall. Then to make things worse, being alerted to the fact that there might be counterfeits on eBay, I looked carefully at my Kate Spade sunshades dress from eBay and discovered that it too was a fake!!!! AHHHHH! Double disappointment! The colors of the sunglasses were different slightly from the original and the weight of the fabric was lighter. The neckline was also cut higher and the ruffle was shorter. I have worn this dress happily for a month not knowing that this dress was not the real thing. Now I wonder if I should remove the “offender” from my closet. It is still as cute as ever but knowing that it is a COUNTERFEIT dress does make me feel somewhat gloomy. The good news is that I contacted the fraud department at Kate Spade and they are investigating the issue and I was able to return the polka dot dress for a full refund! I went right over to my Houston Kate Spade outlet and took the money from the dress and purchased the Tutti-frutti esti skirt with the polka dots in pinks, reds and oranges. I wore it to church this morning proudly knowing that it was authentic and not a fake! It is also the cutest skirt and looks super with my hot pink Quinn handbag.
I am going to be much more cautious when ordering from eBay in the future. One of the problems with the sellers of counterfeit clothing is that they use the Kate Spade photos to advertise the clothing so you think you are getting what is pictured. They may show the other item but it looks very much like the original, especially in photos. The price is usually low and there are several for sale in different sizes. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is! Lesson learned the hard way!!!

The Dress so cute! I can’t wait to wear it somewhere. Sadly,l this week this week there is no “ladies lunch” on my schedule. I may have to create one so I can debut this cutie…

I have ordered the Kate Spade Sunglasses Dress Online and am waiting patiently to receive it in the mail. Maybe today will be the day! My favorite thing about this dress other than the adorable print, is the lovely ruffle at the neckline. That feature was the “selling point” for me! Hope it meets all my expectations! I’ll post a picture when it comes …
