Kate Spade Handbags

Calling All Kate Spade Loyalists




Kate Spade has done it again.  The new pebble-leather handbags are soft and buttery leather while designed in classic and timeless shapes.  Apparently, a new leather fabrication for Ms. Spade and it is divine.  Whereas the classic Kate Spade handbags are in crosshatched leather which is stiffer though hold shape beautifully and solidly.    It is extremely difficult to find a classic shaped handbag that is downright red carpet ready with soft supple leather all at a reasonable price point. Get ready to enjoy these lovelies!

The Haute List




Learning about fresh and new makeup for Spring is like dipping hands into a candy jar with so many different shades and flavors to take in and consume.   A trip to the mall can be nirvana when heading to a favorite makeup counter or an overwhelming experience. Always have a plan and a list for starters to avoid the "I am melting down" syndrome.   Recently on such an excursion a new foundation that is utterly silky and sublime on skin made it home along with a few other items.  Let the games begin.  Winter is indeed over and Spring has arrived like a lion. 

Creamy Skin








I. The Haute Foundation:  It is important to start with healthy and clean skin before adding a foundation that evens out skin tone.  Yes - you need foundation even if you hear you don't because you are using the latest and greatest miracle skin care line.   Finding a skin care routine is personal and depends on the condition of your skin.  I have tried many lines over the years and have seen …

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.
