Quickie Reviews: Kate Spade

(Don't forget to enter the Shabby Apple giveaway, for a TTLLV necklace!  (see here)  While there are 11 comments on the post, there are only four valid giveaway entries.  Get in there while the gettin's good.  Contest ends on Monday night.)

My Kate Spade sale purchases from last week arrived!

Kate Spade Sparkler Gia in Multi-Color, now $57 (currently sold out, but available here in gold glitter/cosmetic case size)

On the one hand, this little clutch is just so damn cute and seasonal.  It's attention-grabbing and OUTRAGEOUSLY sparkly.  It's sitting in a dark corner of my apartment right now looking like a pile of diamonds; I have no clue where it's even getting light to reflect, but it's reflecting it.

On the other hand, the downside of glitter is that it sheds.  The shedding hasn't been intolerable, but it's certainly leaving a few pieces here and there around the house.

(After setting it on this windowsill)

I think I can tolerate the glitter loss because this thing is just SO darn sparkly, but I'll have to be careful to store and treat it gently.  At least it's functional---it fits a good amount of stuff and still looks pretty slim.

Kate Spade Doodles Pen Necklace, $46 here

Pretty self-explanatory.  I'm not sure whether this necklace is worth $46, but I've been getting such a crazy amount of use out of long gold necklaces (see, e.g., my magnifying glass and Kate Spade glasses) that I may keep this piece.

Of course, there's always the possibility of finding a cheaper option Etsy...

I hope you all have a very happy new year's celebration this weekend!  Stay safe and have fun.
