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...

Emotional crashing

I experienced an incredibly strong emotional response today and I am left trying to really understand the origin of it... sharing it helps me think about it.

Yes, I'm envious...

This is the Alice Cos Group , a dance group from China that features only males in their cast. They are all, to put it mildly, simply gorgeous and dammit, I'm just a little jealous! Admittedly, at my current age (let's just say that I go back a few decades and leave it at that) there is zero chance that I would ever be able to pull off the look even remotely as well as they can, but hey, a gal can dream! I'm also really jealous that they actually live a life practically straight out of a Fictionmania story; I would have leapt at such a chance at that age. Ah well, such is the dice of life. Anyways, a sample of their work:
