Have you seen the just launched Kate Spade website... Kate Spade Saturday?  The website offers a more affordable line of fabulous Kate Spade, accessories, home items and my favorite category --> design a bag!  Yes, you can custom design your own weekender bag by choosing the body, base, pocket and strap colors from a color palette.  It is priced at $280 (add $10 if you choose to monogram it) and free shipping in the US.  Take a look at a few of my custom designs and design your own --> Design a Weekender Bag!

I am loving the options to incorporate the trending bright colors, colorblocking and stripes!  Thoughts on the new Kate Spade Saturday website and the design a weekender bag?   Which is your favorite design and how would you design yours?

Spring Dresses Under $30!

With the temperatures finally starting to rise in most parts of the US (yesterday was 90+ degrees here in Texas), it's time to start looking at spring dresses.  I was curious what might be available for under $25 or $30, and I was surprised to see these lovely finds...

1/  H&M Zebra Dress   ($17.95)  2/  Victoria's Secret Double-strap Bra Top Dress  ($28.40)   3/  2b Smock Print Strapless Dress   ($24.95)  4/  Forever 21 Rosebud Dress    ($17.80)  5/ Forever 21 Chiffon High-Low Dress    ($22.80)  6/  Forever 21 Striped Maxi Dress   ($15)
Thoughts on my dress picks showcasing the spring trends of bright colors (especially blues), striping, florals, black and white, maxis, and the return of the last year's popular high-low look?

Hope y'all are having a wonderful week :)

While sorting through my denim collection, I came across my collection of distressed jeans.  Now that it's basically spring here in Texas, it's time to put them into the denim rotation and decide how to make this trend fresh for spring 2013.
