As a longtime fan of both kate spade new york and InStyle, I was so thrilled to be a part of last week’s grand opening celebration at the new kate spade new york boutique in Charlottesville, VA. It was so much fun getting decked out for the evening (I loved the hot pink Vail and Villa dresses but ultimately went with the leopard Paulina paired with my sparkly Charm heels) and getting to mix and mingle with some of you!
Second to the clothes, the best part of shopping at a kate spade new york boutique is the design inspiration, and the Barrack’s Road location is a complete jewel box! I fell hard for their pale pink wallpapered dressing room (can anyone name that paper–I’m dying to use it!) with its chocolate velvet curtain and of course, no one does a gallery wall better than KSNY.
With each customer I chatted with, my wish list seemed grew exponentially. Their new Beau bag is high up there on that list along with this pair of Happy heels. Never a minimalist when it comes to accessories, I also admired the Give it a Twirl and–because I have the worst vision ever–got a kick out of the Goreski Glasses bangle.
Thanks so much to everyone that came out and special thanks to kate spade new york and InStyle for having me. If you’re in Charlottesville, give those adorable ladies above a visit and they’ll take care of you!
