My perception of kate spade new york has really changed over the past couple of years. I used to think the bags were way too simple for my taste, but now I wouldn’t dare refer to a kate spade bag as such. The evolution of the brand is evident. I love the clever designs of the kate spade new york ‘daycation – rain or shine’ coated canvas shopper and the ‘daycation – bejeweled’ coated canvas shopper. Both shoppers have a catchy graphics on coated canvas that reminds me of a vintage fashion magazine. There is an interior wall pocket and metallic-script jacquard lining. Price: $175 at Nordstrom.com.
