Kate Spade's Animal Kingdom

Clockwise from top left: Daycation Bon Shopper ($148) / Queen of the Nile Camel Clutch ($348) / Camel Caravan Printed Scarf ($100) / Armadillo Handbag ($147 sale) / Cockatoo Raquel Halter Top ($70 sale) & Summer of Love Bottoms ($63 sale) / Tretorn Try Cockatoo Sneakers ($80) / Wild One Armadillo Studs ($38) all by Kate Spade New York

I can't tell if my tastes are getting preppier or if Kate Spade is just getting hipper, but either way I've found myself enamored of the brand lately.

It struck me one day last week when I stopped into the Newbury Street outpost to see if I could get my hands on a bathing suit on sale from Kate Spade's collaboration with Malia Mills. (In case you're unfamiliar, Malia Mills swimsuits are expensive as all hell, but they flatter like no other. Seriously.) Well, the suits were sold out, but I did find a veritable menagerie!

Armadillos and camels and cockatoos, oh my! Preppy or not, I can't help but love it.


  1. love the handbag and earrings So unique you would get many 

  2. Love the handbag and earrings Would get many comments I am sure as very unique 

  3. the armadillo bag totally reminds me of steel magnolias! my mom has recently become obsessed with kate spade, so she is passing on her love to all her girls. i got my hands on a new bag in hot coral, love!


  4. omg...i just got that armadillo bag! i was so enamored of the elephant one from like last year or 2 years ago & was mad they completely sold out. couldn't even find one on ebay, so didn't want to lose out again!

  5. SO fun, I love all of these! That clutch is adorable!

  6. Armadillo earrings! So cute!

    I think Kate Spade has gotten hipper. They did a great campaign last year with the tagline "More is More" with girls wearing loads of bright jewelry. It was awesome!

  7. I love Kate Spade but the armadillo is too far for me LOL.  have a great weekend!

  8. Kate Spade always manages to surprise me, totally wasn't expecting a cute armadillo bag & camel prints!

    Lovely, thanks for your comment - fyi I sometimes have absent-minded moments too and you're anything but what you said, miss multifaceted fabulousness!

  9. The animal printed "Daycation" shopper is calling my name! I really love animal prints and patterns in many items, fashion, home, etc. happy weekend! And, RE: to your comment, yes, I do hope that you can expand your [fashion] horizons soon! -xo

  10. I have become more and more a fan of Kate Spade. I used to find it all so "cute and straw bags and Hamptons" but now I'm loving a lot of the bags and prints - so chic! OR perhaps New England is finally getting to me...

  11. I'm a bit obsessed with animal-inspired goodies :-) Love all these picks - that camel clutch is just gorgeous!

  12. Love the camel clutch and the armadillo studs!

  13. Love kate spade new york!
