When I was in high school and started working my first job as a hostess as a local restaurant I bought myself a Kate Spade purse. I bought it second-hand of ebay but it was all mine and it was the first really nice bag I had ever had. Since that purchase many years ago I have bought several bags from Kate Spade, it is a brand that I truly trust and am constantly excited by. That first purse I bought back in high school is still in excellent condition today, so that should tell you all you need to know about the quality! Every year Kate Spade comes out with fun and unique bags for every occasion!
As summer approaches I picked out a few bags that are just so fun and perfect for the warm weather!
1. bayard place riley
This bag is a no brainer for summer time! The flowers and pops of color are so fun. But it is big enough that you can toss your laptop in it and head to the office. The outside pocket is perfect for your phone, head phones, or T pass!
2. cameron street straw clarise
I love this bag! It will definitely be my go to bag this summer! I love a cross body because you are not constantly fidgeting with it and it keeps your hands free. I love the pick and straw combination on this bag.
3. spice things up camera bag Remember how I said Kate Spade did FUN bags? Yeah this purse is a perfect example of this, all my Instagram Gurus out there NEED THIS BAG! This is so adorable I am in love.
4. bryant court etta This would be my perfect everyday purse. It is big enough that I can fit all my stuff (read: crap I don’t need) in it but it is still cute. The black and white will match everything and is conservative for those days when you have a big presentation at work or a job interview for all my recent college grads!
I have so many purses but every now and then I get the itch to get a new one. Kate Spade is always my go to brand, yes some of the bags are really expensive but there are also more affordable ones available! And if you really want a Kate Spade bag, or any designer bag, but don’t want to dish out all the money for one check ebay! Or any of the hundreds of resale websites and apps there are now a days! Just be sure to verify the authenticity before buys. I have always had good experiences on Poshmark. One time I got a 400 dollar bag for 100 new with tags still attached! What bag is one your arm doesn’t define you but if you really want that super cute designer bag there is always a way to get it for less! Look on resale websites and check for upcoming sales, a lot of places do a Friends and Family sale at the beginning of summer!
