In just a week’s time, kate spade will finally be opening its very first shop in Toronto (at Yorkdale!), and I can honestly say that I have been waiting for this moment for a veeery long time. So to celebrate the imminent arrival of the cutest store in the universe, I bring you 8 Stylish Reasons to Get Excited About kate spade in Toronto!
#1: Something Stylish for Your Laptop/iPad/iPhone
Seriously, kate spade’s tech accessories are the cutest around, and once the store finally opens its doors, the first item on my shopping list will be an adorable laptop sleeve for my Dell XPS13. For travel, or everyday use, your laptop has never looked cuter!
#2: Book Clutches Galore!
Whether you’re a Shakespeare kind of girl, or a Jane Austin fanatic, kate spade’s got a book clutch for all sorts of stylish book lovers. What’s a book clutch, you might ask? It’s a clutch that looks like a book, simple as that. Right now, I am torn between Romeo and Juliet (love the hearts) and The Great Gatsby (those cute pearls!). Which one will you choose?
#3: Bags, Bags, Bags
Yeah, I know that clutches are technically bags too, but have you seen the adorable kate spade purses? I rest my case.
#4: Whimsical Giftables
From the most lovely of plates, to pretty bedding, this shop will have your hostess/wedding/birthday/holiday gifts covered!
#5: Adorable stationary
Thank You cards, organizers, journals, and monogram note cards…girly, chic, and, yes, whimsical. These actually make me want to write letters to people. Or at least love notes.
#6: Party Dresses
With holidays quickly approaching, party dresses just jumped to #1 on my shopping list, and kate spade has them in…err…spades. From the pretty work-appropriate shifts, to the sparkliest and glitteriest of frocks, I dare you not to find a dress to your liking. Or a skirt…and some pants too. Just go ahead and try it all on!
#7: And Don’t Forget About the Shoes!
Polka dots, glitter, satin, brooches, classic, flat, high-heeled…there are so many pairs and embellishments to choose from…how can a girl buy just one? She simply can’t. That’s my excuse, and I’m sticking to it.
#8: The Finishing Touches
Oh, those adorable little somethings…no outfit is ever complete without them. There’s a cheetah belt with my name on it…also a couple of dainty bracelets and rings, a pair of POW mittens, HUH? earmuffs, a hexagon bangle, Pardon My French necklace…and so much more! Just wrap it all up, and send it to my house.
