Designer Inspired

I'm so excited to introduce this new post to you today.

It was developed because I love to shop but my favorite designers are of course expensive and a bit out of my budget. I will occasionally splurge but it's usually for a special occasion, or I have been saving for one particular item, or a coveted piece goes on sale. Aside from those circumstances I do try to be reasonable and stick to my budget when shopping and will use the designers style as inspiration but look for similar pieces that I can afford.

I know I've mentioned this before, but one designer in particular that I love is Kate Spade. I love their classic and modern at the same time vibe, their color palette, and their style. I would wear it everyday if I could, but since I can't I used Kate Spade for my first Designer Inspired look.

Kate Spade Pieces: eat cake for breakfast tote $248, sequined caroline sweater $298, caroline cardigan $198, farrel wedges $250, anchors away bracelet $98, double bow hinged bangle $78 -

Total: $215.74

What did you think of this topic? I'd definitely like your feedback. Is this a topic you would like to see regularly like a Wednesday Designer Inspired topic? Are there designers or outfits that you would like to see as inspiration? 


  1. This is brilliant and I adore both looks. You did a fantastic job, my dear. Have a wonderful and super cozy Wednesday! Muah

  2. Those wedges are adorable! I use to wear this one Kate Spade bag all the time in high school. But over the years, I veered away. But she did such a great rebranding of the company, I'm falling in love with her staples pieces all over again!
