A Note to Kate Spade
Dear Kate Spade,
Now that you and Andy have sold your company and are moving on to new ventures, might I suggest dipping your toe back into the fashion world, but perhaps designing a more affordable option? What, may you ask? How about creating a line for Target?
Now, don’t laugh. Here’s the deal, Kate (may I call you Kate?) – your clothes and handbags are divine. They have charm, style and a classic look. But, the prices are a bit extreme, even on sale. So, I know you’re up for the challenge to create super-cute clothes with your signature look, yet at great discount prices. Hey, if it worked for Isaac Mizrahi, Michael Graves and Liberty of London, you certainly can do it, and put them to shame in the process.
So, come on, Kate. Give it shot. You’re from a modest upbringing in the Midwest – I know that you can relate to the American gals who have a great sense of style and good taste, but who are living on tight budgets during this economy. We’ll support you in your efforts to design the next superstar line for Tar-jay. We promise.
As a sidenote, I do actually own a kate spade handbag, which I adore, but which has endured a few bumps and scrapes along the way. While my handbag was fresh from the NYC store when it was purchased six years ago, I’m much more frugal these days (is that my husband laughing in the background?). I’m not above perusing ebay to find a good kate spade frock or two. And, if anyone can recommend other places to find discount kate spade, please let me know (or feel free to tell me I’m dreaming.)
