This week I got a glittering email from Kate Spade announcing the designer's new arrivals. The email message was literally twinkling:
The first item I fell in love with in the new collection is the studded Anette dress. Empire waist dresses are the most flattering for my body type, so I always gravitate towards this shape. I think white is such a carefree, summer color and the beading on this dress gives it extra spunk.
On the opposite end of the color spectrum, the Whitney top with roses dresses up a traditional, black top. This top is great because you can where it with jeans (as styled here), belt it, where it with dress pants or a skirt. The cap sleeve adds an extra feminine touch.
Onto the baubles! There were several jewels showcased in the new collection, but these two are my favorite. First, the Cascade bib necklace:
Second, the Cascade short necklace:
Speaking of blue, I was magnetized to this power blue purse called the Essex Scout. This bag is great because it's appropriate for work, but it also dressy enough to take on a night on the town.
