Well, in my dreams I suppose I spent today in Monaco! Why you ask? Because I was rocking one of the new Kate Spade dresses from next months collection, destination: Monaco!
Cardigan: Kate Spade
Dress: Kate Spade
Handbag: Kate Spade
Isn’t the stripes TO DIE FOR?! I instantly fell in love. I actually got to try on all the new dresses for next month (silly me didn’t snap any selfies in the dressing room!!), and there are some super cute ones. I also got to finally see the Lemon print dress in my size, and it’s off my wish list now. (That doesn’t mean if I see if for an incredible price I won’t buy it, but it’s not a “must-have”) I didn’t see anything else in the Monaco collection that is a “omg, I NEED this”, mainly because my cardigan collection has gotten so large, I already have all the colours! But this dress was killer. So versatile!
For sizing, it seems to run right on par with Kate Spade’s sizing, I took a 00, and it could be a touch smaller in the waist area, but is perfect everywhere else. It also has pockets, and I adore the length! I’m 5’5 in flat feet (last trip to my Dr, it seems I had grown half an inch in the last few years. Crazy, right?!), and it hits just below my knees, which is really ideal for me. Today was a super blustery day and there was no flashing anyone, this dress is a nice heavy cotton and stays put! Living in a wind tunnel, this is important!!
Thanks to the gals at Newport Fashion Island Kate Spade store for such a fun morning exploring the new stuff, and finally getting to try on some of the Capri pieces in my size. Can’t wait to do it again!
Go out and see the Monaco collection, I think it’s my favorite yet in the “Year of Travel”. But I will refrain from making a final decision until the end of 2014, as who knows what wonderful things my favorite brand has in store.
Until next time,
