The Whimsical World of Kate Spade!

I love pops of whimsy here and there and Kate Spade never lets me down!  If you still think of Kate Spade as those cute shiny satiny rectangular bags, you’re a little behind the times  . . . The company is no longer owned by Kate and Andy Spade, but Liz Clairborne Inc. has managed to maintain Kate’s aesthethic, some argue even better than Kate Spade herself could have.

Last year Kate Spade launched its book clutch collection; they’re interpreting some of the greatest novels into cheeky cherry clutch bags.  I think I must have the I Married Adventure clutch! I learned about this book last year and was immediately smitten.  The title made me chuckle because, to me, no truer words could be used to describe marriage.  It’s definitely an adventure. Osa Johnson’s book is about the adventures she and her husband, Martin, had as photographers, explorers, marketers, naturalists and authors while studying the wildlife and peoples of East and Central Africa, the South Pacific Islands and British North Borneo during the first half of the Twentieth Century. They explored then-unknown lands and brought back film footage and photographs, offering many Americans their first understanding of these distant lands. Now this book is a collector’s item for decor enthusiasts; I’m not sure I’ll ever get my hands on a copy of the original, but I know I’ll have fun carrying this clutch bag.

If you haven’t thought about Kate Spade in ages, check out the new online store when you get a minute — great shoes, handbags, clothes and jewelry –there’s  a little something for everyone.
