My first Kate Spade!

It's not too often that I'll drop super serious money on a dress and that is mostly a function of how frequently I'm likely to wear it. As a consequence, I tend to buy more inexpensive options and if I only get a few wearings, so be it.

However, I'm a real fan of the Kate Spade look I have to admit. It's is ultra-feminine, chic, and arguably only rivalled by Ted Baker when it comes to hitting my like buttons. Both are also very spendy and that's really hard to justify when I don't get a lot of opportunity to wear.

Now, with the dress pictured to the left, my spouse was all over my buying it. At the outlet, the dress was going for 75% off of list price and that put the price at $129.39 with taxes! Consider that, at the time of this writing, the very same dress can be had for $279.00 USD or, in Canadian dollars, $365.31!

I think they call that a steal.

So why was I buying it? Well, these shoes...

A while ago I had picked up these shoes from 2 Lips Too on sale at Designer Shoe Warehouse just because I thought they were uber cute. Turns out, I was right.

So, now I have some Kate Spade and, well, it's all that is cracked up to be. The dress is gorgeous, the material is superb, and the fit is wonderful.

Now I just need to indulge in some Ted Baker...
