kate spade cameron street fabric mega margo (pxru5964, $378) – Currently out of stock online. If you call a store, they can check stock to see if any stores have it. It was popular from the moment it was released, so they’re not. I’m so glad I had this bag tracked down. I love it. I’m 5’0″, to give you an idea of scale. Big bags are my style, so it’s not too large to me.

Top (6): J Crew swiss-dot tuxedo – try Ebay
kate spade chambray bow blouse (njmu4984, $248) went on sale for $148 + the current Friends & Family promo. It was available when the sale started on Fri, 10/16, but it has sold out. I couldn’t decide between 4 & 6 and decided on the 6. I’m so glad as that was the perfect choice. Check it out on J Crew Is My Fav Store.
The pullover style makes it a little more difficult to get into than a buttondown. There’s no stretch in the fabric, so there’s no give. The fit is great. Close to the body, but not tight. The fabric is lightweight and has flow, but isn’t as fluid as Lyocell. The chambray has a slight sheen to it, but not shiny and it’s very pretty. My concerns were the puff at the shoulders. They’re good, not exaggerated. And the big bow. I was worried it would be clownish. I don’t think my husband would like me to wear the top with him, but he would never say it out loud. There are some fashion things he just can’t take seriously. That’s fine. It’s plenty cute without his approval. He holds the belief that women dress for one another and it matters more to me what other women think, than his opinion.
Kate Spade’s party skirt style doesn’t work for me, so no midi skirt pairing with this. I will have to go edgy, like black coated jeans. The ones I have are by Ann Taylor. These CJ by Cookie Johnson (Nordstrom) look good. The fit on Old Navy Rockstars ($36.94) are good.
kate spade wool capelet (njmu4984, $545) – Size XS – I was able to try on S and XS.The S looked a little big in the shoulders, so I got the XS. I’m 5’0″ for size reference. I take S in Kate Spade outlet coats, so an XS is down one for me.
I don’t know what’s going on at the Kate Spade outlets, but I had a heck of a time getting this coat. One store told me they no longer do send sales over the phone. I was told by another store that they don’t do holds, but another store was willing to put it on hold for me. If they’re having service issues, I hope they get them together before the holiday season begins or it’s going to be a rough ride.
Kate Spade’s Friends & Family sale ends tonite, Sun 10/18. The code is INDULGE for 25% off sitewide, free shipping. The promo is also good in-store.
