I wanted to post this as a tribute to Kate Spade. I absolutely loved her designs and I am a proud owner of 7 bags, shoes, jewelry and lipstick. I remember when I could finally afford my first bag. From then on, Kate Spade was pretty much the only brand I buy for handbags. Every one of them gets me compliments like crazy.

She retired from her company in 2006 to raise her daughter but her influence remained. Kate Spade brought back fun into fashion. Woman of all ages worn her designs and looked smashing. I hope Kate Spade New York will always remain true to her spirit.

I suppose in the weeks to come, we will learn more about her decision to end her life. Very sad for her family and friends. I read her sister stated she had lived with serve depression but did not seek help.

Depression and other forms of mental illness should not be ignored. There is no longer a stigma about getting help. Some people are stubborn and refuse to get help. Observe people around you closely. People who are suffering do so in private most of the times. Let people know you are there for them.

Lastly, I posted this video because it is my favorite out of all of them. I believe it captures the fun spirit of Kate Spade.

Nothing dresses up your basics like a good statement piece. A simple tee and a statement necklace will take you from boring to stunning without trying too hard. The rule is to keep it simple. If you choose to wear a statement necklace, then keep your earrings simple. You want one item to stand out.

You can also make a statement with a colorful scarf or shawl, funky sunglasses or a hat. A hip belt with an interesting belt buckle would dress up a basic tunic. Add a statement bracelet or earrings to finish the look.

I put together a collection of statement jewelry that really caught my eye. The pieces are from the spring Soft Surroundings Collection. I have also included some sale pieces from the fall collection.

Over 90 items on sale!

The Fall-Winter Collection 2017  from CHANEL – Break The Rules With Colour, is a collection that has blown me away. This is the bold colour that would pair perfectly with autumn’s colours. I love teal paired with beiges tones that you turn into a daytime look but I think this collection is perfect for evening. The colours remind me of a peacock, the fanciest bird of them all.

“The ultimate staple for creating a dewy, fresh-faced look, this versatile palette packs multiple uses and effects in a sleek, touch-up-friendly compact”. 

I would say that a bold look, requires the right application. This means using brushes and especially a lip brush when doing a red lip. You may have to adjust your eyeshadow application to your eye shape to get the perfect look for you.

If Chanel makeup is new to you, do not let the sticker shock put you off. While Chanel is at the high-end of cosmetics, I find the colour payoff to be worth it. Especially, their blushes. My skin is on the dry side and blush fades away. Chanel stays on me.

While at the Chanel site, look at their exclusive items that can only be bought at Chanel.
