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


Ouch, it’s hard to believe fall is “officially” here! Of course it still feels like summer where I live, although I haven’t had to run my air conditioning in a few days, which is nice! While I’m ready for fall, I’m still dressing for summer, something required when the high hits the low 90’s!

Sunday I wore this, first time since I fixed the broken zipper!




Dress: Kate Spade Emma Dress
Belt: Made by me
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Simples
Necklace: unsigned, picked up at Burlington Coat factory for less than $10
Bracelet: Ben Amun
Handbag: Stuart Weitzman (an it’s a wrap find for under $20!)

I did not receive any assistance from Kate Spade to fix my zipper (which is unfortunate, especially as they have used this color zipper since this dress! I only needed a zipper pull!!!). I ended up hunting down the company who manufactures zipper FOR Kate Spade and got a rose gold zipper pull from them (sadly, it does not have the pretty “bow” pull, but it IS the right colour!) and replaced it myself. Voila! Back in business. Add in a large necklace and wear my hair down and no one will notice the pull is different! (And even then, most people probably wouldn’t know)

Yesterday I wore this, an eBay find I was super excited about as I’ve been hunting for a black Jillian dress in my size for over a year!




Dress: Kate Spade Jillian
Shoes: Kate Spade
Necklace: Kohls

I threw the same dress on this morning to run kids to school. I’m actually headed back home, I’m working from home today, packing (I leave tomorrow for a week out of town), and doing “mommy” duties so my brood doesn’t starve while I’m gone. Food (specifically dinner) is my husbands love language, and so when I have to be gone, I try to make a point of preparing meals that are super easy to heat up and serve. This working mom and having to travel is rough yall!

Hope your week is awesome! My updates will be sporadic the next week or so. Catch me on Instagram (katespadegirlblog) or Twitter (ksgirlblog) for photos of my adventures!

Until next time,

  1. So glad you found a zipper… but sad that KS did not contribute to the goodness!! I love that dress so much. HOW DID YOU MAKE THAT BELT?! It’s to die for!! You are so, so, so talented!! Love the necklace too!

    • Sara,

      I found some trim while in LA, sewed it to a ribbon & added some extra sparkles! I’ve made them for brides, usually a “one of a kind” type thing! (And not $200-$300 like the bridal shops)

      I didn’t even replace the zipper, I just replaced the pull, which made it all the more frustrating the KS wasn’t willing send me one. Arghhh.

      Thanks so much!!

      ❤ Jules

    • Thanks! I achieved my goal then!! 😉 I would have loved to have seen old Hollywood. The new hollywood isn’t nearly so glamorous, in fact I don’t think it’s glamorous at all! It’s all Lululemon & Starbucks. (I’m down with the Starbucks part, but I do not own anything Lululemon and never will! No matter how comfortable that stuff looks. Lol)

      Been loving your recent posts!!

      ❤ Jules
