This year in New York City, it’s often seemed like we’ve gone straight from extended winter to early summer – one week it was in the 50s and spitting rain, and then literally the next week it was 90 degrees and sweltering. Now it’s June and I’m not sure what to think, except that I’m a tad excited that the weather map shows temperatures in the mid-70s for the next week and we might actually have a belated spring for a few days. I’m nervous that won’t actually happen, though, because NYC has burned me before, and if it doesn’t, I can always just pick up a Kate Spade Garden Groves Felisha Bag.
If there’s such a thing as the ability to distill a season into a single handbag, then this one definitely does it. The pink tweed bag is over-embellished with everything from translucent neon pailletes, to rhinestones, to bugle beads, and the result is a technicolor floral experience that the wearer could probably best recreate elsewhere via the use of certain illegal substances. Not that we advocate that, of course, particularly when a safe, legal avenue to eternal spring is currently open to you. Be careful, though – it you’re going to want to combine this bag with a fairly simple ensemble, lest you turn out looking like a futuristic Mother Nature yourself. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $498.
