My Visit to Kate Spade in NYC ...

First of all let's just say, Kate Spade is genius! The company is better than ever & deserves all the attention it is getting via the blog world!  

I remember the FIRST GIFT my guy gave me....a Kate Spade purse in 1998. It was a cute black & white zebra print bag with an all red inside!  I was in LOVE with both my guy & the purse ha! Well, it was a nice gesture on his part because I can TOTALLY remember how much I adored Kate Spade! Major points for him right ladies??  


To this day I STILL have both the bag & the guy.....


The Kate Spade shop in NYC was one of those stores I was dying to visit - it's situated in Soho & it couldn't have been on a better day!! It was the ONLY day it wasn't actually raining in the city! 




I decided to shoot the things that caught my eye the most - from the store decor (amazing & so girly) to the super cute wallets (my favorites)! 

Their DARK floor is almost identical to the one I have in my home & the SUPER tall striped curtains gave the place a super chic feel! 


If you're visiting Manhattan - you must check out Kate Spade, it was like Disney Land .....but for fashion conscious girls like myself!  



















 Below are my favorites! Especially the black and white wallet!








Have you been to Kate Spade in NYC yet?? What did you think???

I was there when I visited NYC in November. The space is just divine, it reflects the KS brand to perfection. Gorgeous images you posted. I was spying the photos closely as I was looking for the tipsy flats which are completely sold out online. The linen ones with the neon toes, I'm obsessed! Need them...

Ah! I just bought my first Kate Spade bag and am in LOVE!

I have zero need for those glittery heels, but I WANT them so badly! I've never been to the store but it looks amazing. Kate has some very smart stylists, designers, and marketers working for her!

I was in that very shop last week and had the greatest customer service! Not only is the shop gorgeous, but the staff really went above and beyond other busy Soho shops (or shops in general!) and I can't wait to go back again!

SC said...

WHAT A COOOOOOOOL SHOP!! Hell, this is amazing. Great items too.

x I love your blog, chou. Following

layersofmeaning said...

I have! I was there in 2009 during Thanksgiving! LOVE IT!

Julie Gallagher said...

Okay Jen I owe you BIG TIME! For months I have been dreaming about designing my soon-to-be little shop and now you have saved me the trouble! Black and white curtains how we come, stripy floors, parasols form the ceiling and paper lanterns, gallery wall... now I just need some funky wall paper and think how I could pull off that glitter wall - may be a bit tricky! I think I may just have to send you a little gift to say thanks when it is all done!

Livyb said...

Lovely pictures.

Helena - A Diary of Lovely said...
