Before I jetted off to France I was invited to afternoon tea with Kate Spade New York’s creative director Deborah Lloyd at their Sloane Square store to celebrate the fashion label’s high summer collection and the Chelsea Flower Show. Before even joining the party inside the store I got very distracted as the windows have all been given a floral makeover, with brightly coloured orchids and peonies adorning the windows, which was just beautiful to see especially with this sunny spell we’ve been having. My pictures don’t do the windows justice, but trust me they are stunning, mix the flowers with Kate Spade NY’s gorgeous tailored pieces and colourful accessories and it makes such a statement.
The event was so much fun, a completed relaxed affair where I caught up with pals Ella of Coco’s Tea Party, Michelle aka Who Is Bob Parris, and Isabelle O’Carroll, as well as chatting to Deborah, who looked stunning in a gorgeous floral dress. The conversation was varied ranging from discussing Paris’ love bridge to how delicious the food was, and even bloggers style, which included praise for my Lulu Guinness for Uniqlo t-shirt, which led onto how cool Williamsburg girls are in New York, not sure how but it did, and I also gushed about the how much I adored the Armadillo straw bag, you may remember my blog on the Kate Spade Elephant bag, well this is this season’s version. One thing I did forget to ask was about the Kate Spade for Barbie doll, which is one of my favourites, I am dying to know if there will be another one.
I am already a huge fan of Kate Spade New York’s quirky accessories and statement jewellery, and I love all the gorgeous dresses, but it was nice to wander around the store and make my virtual wishlist!! What I would say is if you haven’t checked out the Kate Spade NY store off Sloane Square then you should it is such an adorable store, and if you are feeling down I would totally recommend a shopping spree here to cheer you up!!!
