Gotta be real - Kate Spade’s death was a real blow. She was gone and would never create again. My heart broke for her family, her friends and the women around the world who [like me] idolized her.
When it hit the news, I received multiple text messages and phone calls from friends in their 20s, whom too were shaken by the brutal finality. I know that the KS brand has for many years, not been owned or designed by the real Kate. But she’s transcended design and is an #icon that surpassed most other designers for me and many of my peers.
By mere coincidence, I bought my first Kate Spade dress (though I own many KS handbags and wallets) two weeks before she passed. My mother helped me purchase it, because she loved it and I was tight on shopping money. It was the quintessential female moment.
Today, I downloaded the Spademoji keyboard, because every day deserves a little extra Kate Spade sparkle and spirit. 💕

Love my new #katespade bag...a birthday gift from my parents...these colors just put a smile on my face! ♠️
Happy Sundaying! ♠️
My very first Kate Spade purchases 😍
A passport holder in Grand Street Mahogany for our upcoming trip to Turks and Caicos. I’m in ❤️ with this color.
A small malea wallet in mulberry street warm cognac. I’ll use this compact wallet when I carry my LV pochette accessoires as a crossbody bag. If I try to use my full size wallet, that’s pretty much all that’s going in there.
This last week has broken my heart 💔 with the deaths that have occurred. Just to look on here and see a 15 year old BOY being stabbed to death by 5 GROWN ASS MEN!! To see the look on his face 😢 scroll down a little further and see Tentacion’s lifeless body; I can’t take it. Then the celebrities we admire so much committing suicide 😢 I hurt for these families. I hurt for the human race in general. We are humans!!! But the animal traits are being presented so fast. I don’t want my emotions to eventually attract things like this into my reality. So I’m gonna step away. Ignorant, demonic, senseless people sure do know how to take the fun out of everything!!!! #ripxxxtentacion#justiceforjunior stop judging stop killing, what have become of us?! 😢 #ripkatespade#ripanthonybourdain
