"She who leaves a trail of glitter is never forgotten." -Kate Spade
Yesterday, June 5th 2018, I received several texts from friends letting me know that Kate Spade, one of my favorite designers passed away. Not only did Kate Spade embody poise, elegance, and grace but she personified the everyday woman. Kate took risks, making her designs bold, filled with color and patterns that not every designer thought about using.
She believed that women are beautiful, with a cocktail in hand, and confetti in their hair. Her designs told stories of different cultures, of women, and lives that we could all relate to.
This blog post is dedicated to HER, because real legends could never be forgotten.
Although this dress is NOT designed by Kate Spade, but by an online boutique called sundress, I found that the bright colors, and tassels, embody a lot of her flavor and pzazz. Kate said "I believe that playing dress up begins at age five and never truly ends." I played dress up as a little girl. Adorning myself in giant pearls, my mom's high heels, and smeared make-up on my face. It became a part of me. Fashion became my way of expression as it is for most women.
Kate Spade has inspired a lot of my fashion, in fact, she was one of the first designers that encouraged me to create this blog. Over the summer her brand did a challenge every day. One, was to do something you've never done before. I have always been a avid writer, but, I never thought that people would actually read what I have to say. Kate gave me the courage to start this little blog, and look how far it's come!
Through Kate, I've chased my dreams, in the tallest pair of heels that I know. I'm living, as colorfully as I can, and I know that she lived by that motto as well. I will remember her words, to stay quick, and curious, and strong.
I will be the best that I can be and continue to chase what makes me happy. This blog is dedicated to an icon, a role-model, and a brilliant designer. You will be missed!
Here are some more pictures of my Kate Spade inspired dress! I simply adore this color and it's perfect for Summer! It's in size xsmall. The back is simply my favorite!
Until next time, live colorfully babes!
