Kate Spade - Fall 2015 - Apparel & Readers





Coats, Skirts, Satchels, Loafers & Readers Oh My!




Kate Spade Fall 2015 Ad Campaign

Fall 2015 is definitely on the way with the trees leaves beginning to turn ravishing red and a glorious yellow while the rain falls and sun comes out between the storms.   Mothers are rapidly organizing children's clothes, pencils, backpacks and so much more for school and secretly sighing with relief.  And, a chill vibrates through the air as summer dissipates.   However, Fall 2015 is indeed an Audreyesq year with warm coats, skirts, satchels, loafers and readers.  The classic ladylike beauty is ever so popular.  Recently, overseeing a tennis meeting, this wrist broken (from tennis in June) yet recovering writer whipped out Kate Spade readers which are wonderfully crafted and very chic.  Oohh's and Aahh's ensued with friends examining my readers and others clicking away on iPhone's to Nordstrom online website. Over the years, my collection of Kate Spade readers have grown with a pair placed conveniently in every room.   The quality is superb and the vision perfection.   Thus, an idea to showcase Kate Spade Fall 2015 apparel fashion along with Kate's must have readers for fashionistas everywhere.


"Style is the sum of so many things - beginning with a sense of who you are and having self confidence" - Kate Spade


Coats!

I. Polished and Rich:  Wrap up in cozy red and black or white and black plaid patterns signaling old world refinement.  Think castles, horse riding, hot chocolate and of classic apparel that is never trendy and stands the test of time.

Dresses & Skirts!

"She makes the day brighter, she leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes" - Kate Spade


II.  Dreamy Dresses and Skirts:  Be screen-siren glamorous wearing a precious pink in a dress.  Additionally, a pencil skirt is sophisticated on every fashion maven.

"One got a sense that Audrey Hepburn didn't know how beautiful she was. There was never another movie star like her" - Isaac Mizrahi

 Satchels!

"I think playing dress up begins at age five and never truly ends" - Kate Spade




 III.  Ladylike Satchels:  Satchels are by far the best handbag on the market.  The shape and construction creates space for a magnitude of items as it sits magnificently queen-like on display.

 "Audrey had an angelic quality about her.  She didn't act like she was better than everyone, she just had a presence, an energy a sort of light coming from within her that was overwhelming." - Kevyn Aucoin

 Loafers!

"She is quick and curious and playful and strong" - Kate Spade


 
IV.  Preppy Chic: Tailored, classic, comfortable and cosmopolitan are the words that describe the professional yet demure loafer.  Invest in a pair and wear forever.   The black pair that this maven owns is about fifteen or so years old and still scream "in-style".  Audrey, Grace and JFK were on to something!

Fall 2015 is bound to be another incredible season. Kate Spade beautifully captures the essence of ladylike and classic apparel.  And, images of classic icons such as Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly remain forefront and center.  Stay focused, remain upbeat, smile and enjoy the scenery as the landscape becomes a burnished red and gold.

Monday's Favorite Things - The Blazer

Classic is KeyL'Agence
Recently, I cleaned out my closet and donated seven bags of apparel.   The items ranged from high quality constructed blazers that I have owned over a decade along with other clothes that no longer fit.  It was difficult to let go of so many beautiful and well cherished pieces.  However, I know someone out there will love the blazers, skirts and suits that were donated.  They will be used rather than languishing in my closet and collecting dust. 
At the end of Finding Nemo (2003).   Nemo and his pals state, "Now What?"
When you are done purging the aftermath in a wardrobe can be unnerving.  You may find yourself in Nemo's predicament and think "Now What?""Where are my blazers for those occasions I need them?" Of course, over the last 8 months we have been primarily house bound and without need of fancy apparel.  For me, I have lived in shorts, tees, jeans, cashmere pullovers, tennis shoes and boots.  My lovely blazers were neve…

7 Ways to Become a Butterfly

Don't Crush the Butterfly!


"Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people." - Prince




Butterfly's come in all shapes and sizes painted in dazzling and colorful hues.  The beauty and varied differences of the butterfly are astounding and beloved by the beholder.  There are approximately 20,000 species throughout the world dancing in the sun and air.   Yet, what does a butterfly mean to fashionistas? Well, for one all the people of the land can evolve into creative and wondrous butterflies.   It is through the journey of life that sometimes the environment, family, friends and peers willingly crush the beauty and charming essence of you  - the exotic butterfly.






Don't Destroy the Wings of Flight
There will always be the vengeful, the user, the hateful or a person filled with jealousy and envy that clips the wings of the butterfly.  Their insecurities reign supreme and a beautiful butterfly ready to spread its wings can sometimes be stunned with …

Jeans - Ripped, Baggy or Classic

Trendy or Modern Classic? Celebrate Being a Woman!
The Trends











The Classics











Something is in the air this Spring when it comes to jeans now more than ever.   The trendy rage of jeans with holes, rips and bagginess in dark and light denim is present far and wide across the land. Additionally, embellishments of glitter and flowers cemented on the fabric is rampant.  To top it off the "mom" jean from the '80's is making an ugly reappearance. The challenge with these trends is that the eye sees only the distractions rather than the entire ensemble or person.  Of course, the trends are fun, whimsical and youthful.  Yet, apparel draped on a silhouette is all about lines and proportions and when one element screams attention the overall look is lost and questioned.   In comparison, classic dark denim either in a skinny or straight leg jean creates clean lines and flatters from head to toe.   The dark denim blends in with the other hues and construction of the other pieces cre…

Monday's Favorite Things - The Bootie

What I love this Week?- Bootie by Aquatalia"A woman with good shoes is never ugly." Coco Chanel


Rain, cold, wind and breezy days has spread across the Pacific Northwest.  Thus, sweaters, jeans, wool coats, leather gloves, boots and booties are making a fast entrance to daily life.   It is an exciting time of the year when the world changes to the glorious colors of fall ending the days of sun and warmth.  We eagerly pull out beautiful fabrics and exquisite apparel slated for the cold fronts on the horizon. 
My favorite boot brand is Aquatalia.   I love their tall boots and booties for the rain infused months that lay ahead.   The company is based in San Francisco, California.  All the boots are crafted in Italy, with meticulous care towards Italian shoemaking.  The fit is superb and comfort exceptional right out of the box.  Additionally, Aquatalia is waterproof and stain resistant even in suede.   Now, I would not wear these beautiful numbers during a snowstorm or on a day wh…
