Kate Spade New York is taking an additional 25% off their items on sale this Labor Day weekend with promo Code DELIGHT. The sale ends Monday, September 7, 2015. So don’t sleep on it! I took a look at the sale items and there are a ton of cute handbags that are worth investing in. Nonetheless, I whittled it down to my top 8 must have pieces. Let’s get started!
Julia Street Camplin by Kate Spade
This adorable chubby handbag is available in two colors: beige and bright red. The inside is lined with a beautiful and classic bookstripe fabric. The hardware is plated with 14 karat gold and it includes an adjustable shoulder strap. I really love the shape of this satchel. It’s almost square with a signature bow accent. Just like most Kate Spade Pieces it’s serious yet playful. A great bag for everyday use and taking to work. It’s original price is $348 and it’s marked down to $243. With the promo code it comes out to $182! That’s almost half off. I was serious when I said you shouldn’t sleep on these deals :)
I have always loved polka dots. They are a classic pattern; they don’t really go out of style. However, there is a polka dot trend going on right now and polka dots are back in a big way. I have spotted dots on dresses, tops, skirts, shoes, bags, accessories, and even home goods! Needless to say, I am ecstatic. I can never have enough polka dots in my closet. No scratch that – I can never have enough polka dots in my life.
I hope you share my love for dotted patterns. Let’s get down to business.

I was wondering what kind of clothes ASOS would have in their Valentine’s gift guide but I was surprised to see a bunch of quirky products besides just clothes. Actually, their selection was pretty spot on. I kind of want most of the products for myself. So I went ahead and rounded up my favorite gifts from their guide below. Enjoy!

The first find I would like to share with you is West Elm’s Valentines Gift Guide For Her. I am a huge fan of West Elm’s style and they have some adorable gift ideas like the heart Tic Tac Toe. How cute are those chubby hearts?!
Heart Tic Tac Toe
West Elm’s take on this classic pastime has a wooden box with a lid that doubles as a playing board. Its iron game pieces are shaped like x’s and hearts (instead of o’s).
The future is in your hands. Ask a yes or no question, shake the Magic Emotiball and get an answer in the form of an emoji face. Ten different outcomes with a key on the sides of the box with responses like “bleh probs not”, “yes obvi” “xoxo it is decidedly so” and “haha maybe later”.
