7/4 note – $268 online
Size 8 – pink multi – I wear 7.5 in most shoes. In Kate Spade flats, I usually take 7.5. In Kate Spade heels, I believe I have some 7.5 and some size 8s. These were a good fit & I’d take the 8.The block heel makes them very easy to manage.
My tote is Kate Spade from 2013.Similar, also by Kate Spade:
splash out fish tote (pxru5488, $298). The color is called island deep blue/black/white.
6/25 sale price note – $208
The beach! I could totally see taking this to the beach. A nice beach. A hip beach. A resort beach.
It’s so quirky and literal, but I was loving it.
I wonder if they’ll create an outlet version. Love the straw, love the cobalt, love the zigzag pattern. My rhinestone link bracelet is (old) J. Crew. See a similar one for $20 at Target. The glass stone bracelet I’m wearing is also (old) J. Crew and I don’t see a similar one for that.
everything’s going swimmingly hinged idiom bangle (wbru9693, $78) – This one is ok. There are better idiom bracelets where you can more quickly make out the words. Of course it’s nice that the colors in the bracelet are echoed thru the collection.You’d want to put this with the dive in bangle and/or head in the clouds bangle.

If you would like assistance from a store with anything Kate Spade related, call store director Melissa and her team in Walnut Creek, (925)934-5893. It doesn’t matter where in the U.S. you are. I recently referred a Midwest friend to the store. Tell them Gigi sent you.
I’ve known Melissa for as long as I’ve been blogging and from her J Crew days. She’s one of three reasons I didn’t give up on J. Crew during the website re-do of 2008. Melissa’s service is impeccable and fun!
