{Wardrobe} Wednesday: Kate Spade

Do you ever have one of those days when you're 16 hours away from your closet in a city that should have an ample supply of beautiful clothes for purchasing and you have an important event that you really want to look nice for, but you shop and you shop and your little heart finds nothing it yearns for?
Well last week I was having one of those days.
Luckily, I happen to have the kindest, 
most fashionable cousin in the whole-wide-world who just happens to reside right up the road in Mesatown.
I sent out a fashion emergency alert and Natalie came to my rescue! 
I had a skirt to wear already, but when she offered me Kate Spade, I was well aware that this may be my only chance in life to wear such a label and you best be believin' I jumped on the opportunity.

 Also, my hair...
Doesn't it look glam? 
I surely must throw a shout-out to my fantabulously talented sister Leisel who fixed the mess I had made of my hair while away in Idaho. Finally I don't have ghastly yellow locks.
I felt like a dream that day, 
thanks to the beautiful ladies I have in my life.
