I went into Kate Spade last nite. It’s always nice to be able to see items irl after lusting after them on the website for weeks. I learned that sale items had been an additional 25% off, but the promo was bumped up to an 40% sale items in-store. It’ll be good in-store thru Monday. I’ve been waiting to see if a similar, online promo will show up, but I’m not seeing one as I draft this post.
I’ve been longing for a handbag in ballet pink or cipria, which is a similar pale color. You can see 2 Park Avenue Small Beau in cipria. I’ve seen that bag a couple of times. I don’t think the shape fits my needs or how I utilize my handbags. I also decided that I prefer ballet pink over cipria. The latter has a cooler very, very slight lavender tint to it. Barely. The ballet pink is prettier for me even though I’m not wearing it near my face like a sweater or other top. This bag was on my wishlist and, well, why would I dare make a ny resolution about shopping.
Kate Spade Beacon Court Angelica (pxru4590, $248) comes in ballet slipper, black, strawberry and shadow grey. I’m really into crossbodys right now. I still love my gargantuan totes, but the small crossbody is liberating.
Ballet pink – Adore it.
A slightly closer shot and you can see the warmth of the pink. It’s a light, pale color. Closer to the color in the above pic, but warm like this photo.
The bow. It’s simply secured at the stud in the middle. It’s secured on very well from end to end, laying flush w/the bag.
No ‘feet’ on the bottom, nor did I expect there to be.
There’s a small, interior pocket, which is nice and unexpected. Small bags liek this don’t always h ave interior pockets. I thought I got a better shot of the lining. It’s described as custom woven graphic champagne floral printed faille. It looks like the Kate Spade spade. The color is pale pink and outlined in navy. It’s not my favorite of the linings they’ve offered, but I’ll never see it once I have stuff in it.
I love that all handbags come with a dust bag.
The gold print says, she tucked her coral lipstick away and floated back to the party.
I paid a net $103 for this bag w/the addtl 40% off. If you didn’t know, Kate Spade retail stores & outlets will do charge/sends for only $5 shipping. Gotta love that.
The KS outlets are having an addtl 40% off clearance + an addtl 20% off thru tomorrow, Mon 1/20.
