Confessions of a …

Kate Spade Handbag Stalker

That’s been me this past week.

I confess to falling in love with Kate Spade’s “Bow Valley” bag when we first locked eyes this past Sunday in Fashion Island in Newport. Nordstrom’s being my first stop, I obsessed the rest of the day over this soft, buttery leather bag with a shiny patent half bow.

The one thing I was obsessing about was the cost. Ugh.

This is when I became a stalker. I saw the black version was on sale at so I thought the pink must have been an exclusive to Nordstrom. I stalked the Nordstrom site online. Morning. Night. And finally I found it had been reduced 33%!

I quickly made my purchases (I’m seeing which one I like since the store only had the smaller bag).

Which one do you like? The smaller, more prim bag or the shoulder tote?

Decisions. Decisions.

Also Kate Spade’s Spring 2012 hit today. Very mod and very pink. Love!

This is also my first attempt at Polyvore. Be kind. lol!


Derby Day Bracelets

I do love a reason to acquire a new bracelet. My credit card is running for the roses this week! I recently brought Janna Conner up to post position.Here’s another winner to cross the finish line.

Terrific Tote

I waded through all my Cyber Monday emails today and found a new source for a tote bag in my favorite 2-color combination ~ Hot pink and a bright buttery yellow. I liked these too. Sometimes, all one needs is something pretty to look at. It was like a breath of fresh air amid ads of every possible electronic gift imaginable. Thanks Ame & Lulu.I needed that.

23 Days And Counting…

It’s time to think about what I’d like for my Birthday next month. Fantasizing that my budget is unlimited is the best part. Don’t we all love to do this? If Mr. Pink Martini ever read my blog he would find many ideas to surprise me with and since gift buying is not a particularly strong suit of his I have made it very easy for him. Key: * = Easily Obtainable. No brainer. ** = The ‘wow’ factor would… [Read More]
