Fall Bag: Kate Spade Southport Avenue Cameron

Yes I know that technically I’m early. I agree that per the calendar Autumn/Fall isn’t until September 22.  Still it’s September 1st(how in the hey did that happen??) and the kids are back to school so it feels like Fall to me. What better way to celebrate a change in season than with a pretty new purse?  A pretty purse that was 60% off !

When I first clicked on the link for the Kate Spade surprise sale nothing grabbed my attention. I took another look a day later when somebody at work sent me the link, and I saw this bag in a color that I just wasn’t feeling. I liked the shape and size of the bag, and the fact that it zipped across at the top and had brass feet. I just wasn’t too fond of  the color that was displayed. I was just about the leave the site when I spied with my little eyes the words that every online shopper loves to see, “available in additional colors”, so I clicked to see the other colors and BAM! There she was, Ms.( pronounced Miz because I think she looks like a Miz) Cameron in all her African Violet glory. As they say in showbiz, it was a wrap, and now I have a lovely bag for Fall, albeit 21 days early.

Are you changing up your accessories for Fall?  Have you found any great sales lately? Sharing is caring :).

Thanks for stopping by. Have a safe and fun Labor Day weekend!

      Hi Debi. The base of the bag is almost exactly 13 inches, so you might be cutting it pretty close. Hope that helps. Stop by again soon.
