Day 97: Kate Spade: Things We Love

I've been eyeing this book like mad for the last couple of months. I've been trying to be mindful of my money these days since I'm still job hunting, but the designer in me got the best of me. Buy.com had a sale on this book for $20 + free shipping! I couldn't pass that up. (The book retails for $40, although Amazon has been selling them for $25) 
Three things lead me to love this book: For one, even if I could afford to blow hundreds of dollars on a designer bag, I'm very VERY picky about handbags. Like, I hate almost every bag from Louis Vuitton. I hate the monogram design on any kind of brands, but hey, that's just me. I think the only line of LV bags I like are their vernis leather bags, only because I really like patent leather. On the other hand, I almost always love Kate Spade's line of handbags each year. It's kind of rare for me to like a lot of things from one designer. Usually, I like one or two of a designer's style. And for me, it's not just about the 'look' of the bag, I'm OCD about the shapes and sizes and the small details. Anyway, TL;DR, I LOVE KATE SPADE. So there's reason 'one'. 
Reason two, I got a good sample of this book through other bloggers, and I knew I would love this book as a designer. Each chapter is color coordinated, and that to me already wins me over. 
Reason three is simple; bright pink coffee table book that's extra large. What's not for me to love? 

This is the original jacket cover, but I prefer the bright pink instead :) Also, I keep thinking the girl on the couch is Zooey Deschanel lol. 

I know I've been posting a lot of seemingly "girly" things these past few posts, but I blame that on summer. Whenever summer comes around, my fashion senses start to tingle.
