The 25% off sale items at Kate Spade continues. This sale goes all the way thru 1/7. They’ve added new styles to the site almost every day. There are definitely new items in the handbag section today.
Here’s the Bella wristlet. If you go to the product page, it’ll say that it’s out of stock. That information is referring to the black, which is sold out. Just click the small, pink color box and — at the time of writing — it’s still available. It nets $67 w/JINGLE25.
2 park avenue bella wristlet – rosy dawn (pwru3877) – The style# begins with pwru, so it’s a retail item. Also, 2 park avenue items have been retail only, so far. None made for the outlet.
The size is 8″ x 11″. As you can see, the profile is narrow. No flat bottom. I was able to fit a Clinique lipstick in without it creating a big bulge in a profile. I would keep the lipstick a Ziploc or some other sort of bag to protect the lining of the wristlet.
The leather is a crosshatch, saffiano style. I guess it’s not technically saffiano, but it’s like that. It doesn’t feel rough or give me the heebie jeebies (I have textural issues), but it’s not smooth, glove leather either. If you’re going to use it inside of another bag, it’ll be able to withstand some handling without showing a lot of wear right away. The color is very pretty and of course I love the metallic gold, printed signature.
Surprise! Front pocket. You could put a ticket in the front, for easy access. I would only put something flat there. And the interior is a polka dotted lining. The interior pocket is open, no zip.
I’m 5’0″. That’s an old J. Crew plaid top.
I love it.
Oh — and I forgot to take a pic of my red bow key fob (net $18) . Love that.
