Fashion, Food, Desserts, being a 30-something mom is exciting!

Little Black Dress

Yesterday we went to Palm Springs for a birthday party. So of course while the kids went swimming with grandpa (because once you have kids, your parents really don’t want to see you anymore, they want your kids! You are just a “come with the package” kinda deal. Okay, maybe not, but moms out there, you know what I mean!!), we popped out for about an hour or so. I mean, The Shops at El Paseo are 10 minutes away.

Okay, so we really went to look at a car, which turned out to be Mis-advertised! But there was a Kate Spade store on our way back (kind of anyway), and this commenced me driving like a madwoman down 111! But, we made it!!

And the shop was OK. Not a huge selection, but my husband spotted a solid black dress. Now how he knew I didn’t have a solid black dress in my arsenal (when I couldn’t remember!!) is beyond me. But hey, we are at my favorite store and my husband is holding a dress. What’s a girl to do? Why, try it on of course! And it was perfect. I must admit I was so-so about it, as I had just coerced him a month ago into shoes and a cardigan. But much to my surprise, it came home with us.

Which then set off a massive frenzy between yesterday and today at the outlets (I may or may not have even called a friend who was headed home from Vegas). But that’s a story I will wait to tell until next month. I now have the most amazing surprise for my 2-year blog anniversary giveaway!

However, I did wear the dress today, along with the glittery belt I snagged at the outlet in Cabazon. I kind of want to wear it again tomorrow!!







Cardigan: Target (girls’ section)
Dress: Kate Spade Emma dress
Belt: Kate Spade
Shoes: Jimmy Choo Kindle
Necklace: unknown brand
Handbag: Kate Spade (notice I was undecided, but in the end I went with the black)

And tonight I’m back to the macaron factory. I’m making salted caramel and chocolate orange. Mmmmmm. Another crazy week!

If you can, get the to a Kate Spade outlet! Fabulous deals! Or call your favorite outlet, they will do a charge send for a $5 shipping fee for up to 5 items. I can’t drive to Target and back for $5!!! I’m excited about the other items on their way to me, one was a total fluke!! I now intend to attempt to put myself on a shopping ban. Wish me luck, I need it.

Until next time,

    Ah! I LOVE LOVE that ks dress. The shape is so good. I can’t believe you doubted it. Love the necklace…wish I had won it! And you must have got that pink holographic ks at the outlet. I saw those when I worked there on Black Friday. I have a gold wristlet just like it. I can’t wait to hear about the 2 year surprise…ah hope I win this time!

    • Yup, the pink holographic purse was from the outlet! Along with several of it’s siblings that came home with me! Hey, never too early to jump on present shopping!!

      I know, one would think I would have learned after almost 4 years, my husband nails it on picking clothing out. Maybe one day I’ll let him loose on his own! (Okay, maybe not. Lol. I’m not big on unknown surprises!)

      Yes, next months giveaway is going to be spectacular!!
