    I adore the color of her Bixby and the little orange elephant is such a cute personal good luck charm!

  • ninjaninja

    I love her flats!

  • Ashleyg

    Love her bag and contents but the white on orange is killing my eyes :(. Anywho, I think I definitely need a Kate Spade in my life!

  • fuchsiafury

    This is my favorite WIHB so far! The Bixby is so lovely and feminine. I’m drawn to larger bags, but this is on the verge of changing my mind!

  • 19yearslater

    Yay, you did Kate Spade! I love the way she has a few random little things in her bag (like the elephant). I always carry weird things.

  • Mandy

    Adorable bag! Love the color.

  • Seejayluvsbags

    I hate to be the one but that bag is so ugly…..

    • annie

      i agree with you!

  • KaylaNiche

    Wow! I love seeing the random contents of her bag strewn about like that in pic #2. That’s so real life-I always thought some of these ladies featured on WIHB had purses that were a little too neat to be believable. I’ve always loved the KateSpade brand, I just hate their logo plates.

  • Staci

    It’s so cool seeing the contents in @katespadeny’s bag! I love the Bixby but would prefer a brighter color!

  • nelly

    i like the purse and the flats.

  • CarolineLondon

    London travel cards and the train map. Hurrah! :)
    I also love the “no sleep” bangle… I need me one of those!

  • Mochababe73

    I need the no sleep bangle. That’s how I feel most days.
    I really liked this post because I can read her words. The bag is a pretty color, and I like that she has her stuff just thrown on the table like in real life.
    You should do one of the commenters for What’s in Her Bag ever so often. I would like to see what some of the regulars have in their bag.

  • Leah

    I just saw this beautiful bag at Bloomie’s and almost walked out with the clutch version… but my husband was there! Love Kate Spade :)

  • Amy

    Love the wallet! These features are my favorite :-)

  • Kelly

    Ack, my eyes! I couldn’t even read the white on orange. Maybe this will get republished so I can read it. :) Enjoyed seeing the contents of her purse though. Bixby is adorable!

  • Minerva

    On a side note I have the most amazing brooch from Kate Spade and it is a peacock with the most amazing jewel tone stones…….I love her color palette……I still use a wallet from her from 2001!

  • Sarah

    The Bixby looks identical to a beige bag Armani designed a few years ago. Literally identical.

    For those of us who live in the sticks and who have never been to NYC, what does it mean to be uptown with downtown sensibilities? This is a sincere question. I honestly don’t know what it means.

    • Chris

      This is indeed a valid question. I do not know either.

      • Lorie

        Apparently no one else knows either.

    • @katespadeny

      i’m glad you asked! by referring to kate spade new york as an “uptown brand with a downtown sensibility,” i’m talking about the fun juxtaposition in our aesthetic. for uptown, think the refined look of audrey hepburn in “breakfast at tiffany’s,” mixed with the casual cool of the girls in au revoir simone.

      • Lorie

        Thank you for your reply! I had to google Au Revoir Simone. They have great style. I think I get it now. I definitely get that flavor from your Bixby.

        One of these days I have to see NY in person. It’s very kind of you to reply! :-)

  • Cathy Fitz

    Love this color! And the photos are amazing, as always!

  • Chris

    Yay Kate Spade ! What a fun designer. Her handbags (and clothes, accessories, almost everything really) make me smile .

    And, I did not mind the orange background. In fact, I could read the handwriting! That is not always the case, unfortunately. So, I have to ask you: Can you please ask the future WIHB people, to consider their handwriting? Actually, I generally like the handwriting, it gives the WIHB feature a much more personal touch – but come on, people have to be able to read it.

  • renee

    love the blog, love the bag, love kate spade . . . but this is really hard to read.

  • Amy

    I think this bag is going to have to be my next purchase!
