Friday Favorite Five: Kate Spade Love

Matagal na pala akong walang Friday Favorite Five post. Coincidentally, a week ago, Derdo sent me a link to Kate Spade's new collection. Lahat maganda! I want them all, pero I'll limit this post to five. And believe me, nahirapan talaga akong i-trim down to five.


1. Spring forward flowerpot crossbody, $328.00: "For our spring forward line, our designers embraced their inner eccentrics, creating a collection of whimsical handbags that celebrate the season; this witty flowerpot-shaped cross-body, for example, brings the delights of the garden to any ensemble."

I love this the most in the entire spring collection. Imagine, a flower pot bag? Quirky and functional. I can imagine Zooey Deschanel carrying this.


2. Blooms fit and flare dress, $398.00: "Spring is (finally) in the air, and there’s no better way to celebrate the season than by donning a pretty dress. our flower-covered fit-and-flare certainly fits the bill—in fine cotton, with just the right amount of stretch, it’s perfect for garden parties, brunches and picnics in the park."

Nothing like flowers to perk up your day, right? Well, except for coffee, that is. Marian Rivera ang peg ng dress na ito.




3. Leonia espadrilles, $198.00: "Quite possibly the ultimate shoe for a sunny saturday afternoon, the leonia pairs the sole (and the soul) of an espadrille with a perforated gold leather upper, for a look that’s both easy and chic."

At first glance, I thought it was made of woven leather, à la sulihiya. Parang yung sofa ng parents ko. Turned out it is perforated leather pala. Nangangarap ako ng Chanel espadrille, pero eto pwede na. "Pwede na?" As if afford ko. Hahahaha!




4. Madison Ave. collection paillette flower hat, $448.00: "The Madison Ave. collection began in 2013 as a small capsule exclusively for our madison avenue flagship in NYC, but we knew we couldn't keep these elegant, luxurious pieces a local secret for long. each item – like our blossom-bedecked paillette flower hat -- is still made in small batches for extra-specialness."
 
So fresh-looking and so perfect with the shoes! Summer na summer! 






5. Classic nylon international carry-on, $448.00: "Cleverly designed to maximize capacity while still fitting snugly in the overhead compartment, our international carry-on is the ideal suitcase for your upcoming trips, whether you're headed to Rio, Riyadh or Rome. Spacious enough for a four-day weekend (or, if you?re a light packer, an even longer jaunt), it's also stylish and, in our durable woven nylon, sturdy enough to make trip after trip."

And even if you check this in, it's unlikely someone will pick it up by mistake.  I would prefer this in red or white though. Again, as if afford. Hehehe.




Disclaimer: This is NOT a paid post. Asa naman ako, diba?!  Although if Kate Spade will make me a brand ambassador (hahahahahaha! Feeling Karlie Kloss!) or a partner site, sino naman ako para tumanggi, diba? Mareng Kate, e-mail me at thepseudoshrink at gmail dot com. Willing and able. Let's make this happen, baby! I'm "The Secret"-ing it. Teka, inom muna ako ng gamot, kinukumbulsyon yata ako and hallucinating. Hahahaha!


Note: In my bid to post regularly, I'm going, or at least try, to post every Friday five of my favorite things. They might be current or past possessions, though others might not be necessarily mine -- could be a wish for my fairy godmother (where are you, by the way?), could be something I saw and found interesting, but it will always be driven by beauty and functionality, hopefully both, but that's a tall order.

  1. I lust for the lush green luggage! Kaso nakakapanghinayang if you see how they handle your baggage at the airport. Even those marked with "fragile" stickers are not always handled with care. :-( Handcarry na lang siguro. 8-)

  2. So true. Buti sana kung hindi lang maingat -- I once read a blog post about an LV luggage that was slashed and vandalized. Talagang pang-handcarry lang eto. I live your blog name. :)

  3. Thanks! I love my blog name too. I wanna set my dibs on it, if only personalized domain names are cheap. But they're not! And I'm not exactly a regular poster. Saka na siguro, pag lumevel up na ang aking bloggesh. Yung tipong sponsored na lahat ng posts ko. Haha! :-D

    3. Oh, hindi naman pala nawawala ang mga comments ko. Moderated lang. Parang wala kase akong napansing message na "Comments are awaiting moderation." :-o
      Anyway, buti sana kung 2x a day ako makapagpost, at 700/year, that'll be piso per post. Eh pano kung 3x a year lang ako makapagsulat, eh di ~250 per entry yon. @_@

    4. Take it as a sign, dalas-dalasan mo daw mag-post. Hehehehe, kung magsalita ako as if namang sipag na sipag akong mag-post. There was a time yata na I didn't post for years.

  4. Wow, may iPower that sells at P700? Wordpress, $99!

    Sana KS hears your shout-out and accedes. Sabihin mo, kahit one product per month lang ang fee, okay na.

I'd love to hear from you, good or bad. And remember, if you can dish it, you better be able to take it!
