The Cape Blazer Trend

The Cape Blazer
I’m a bit unsure about the cape blazer trend. I see it as a chic update to the blazer, but is it a trend that will last long? I’m not quite sure if it is worth investing in. The only way I would get the maximum use out of one of these is if I purchased it in black. What’s your take on the cape blazer?

Are the Kate Spade outlet handbags worth buying? YES!

 

Kate-Spade-Cedar-Street-Tote

 

I’ve had my eye on a saffiano tote but wasn’t sure if I wanted to spend my life savings on a Prada bag or keep it affordable with a Kate Spade. I did some research online and decided I would wait for a big outlet sale then go ham at Kate Spade. To my dismay some forum posted a statement calling the Kate Spade outlet items poor quality and that the outlet items were specifically manufactured for the outlets.

I called the Livermore, Ca.  Kate Spade outlet to investigate and asked the following questions and have included the associates answers.

Q:Do you sell Kate Spade boutique overstocks and past seasons styles?

A: Yes.

Q: Does the outlet manufacture different product specifically for the outlet shopper?

A: Yes.

Q: Where does the product come from?

A: Same factory, same material, & same craftsmanship. Different styles.

Q: How can I tell the difference between outlet bags and actual boutique items?

A: There is a separate section for boutique items but there is no real difference. Just different styles. All items come from the exact same factory using the same materials. However, the product codes on the outlet items start with a W and the retail items start with a P and the outlet styles have a gold metal plate as the signature and the boutique styles are stamped with Kate Spade New York. Personally, I like the outlets’ gold plate over the stamp.

So in conclusion, I’m fine with that. I will be spending my 4th of July outlet shopping. I hope to come across a new saffiano Kate Spade tote to take home. What are you thoughts about outlet shopping? Please share your experience with me!
