My Visit To Kate Spade's Flagship Madison Avenue Store

Ah Kate Spade. You have this uncanny knack of making me buy things, because everything you make is just so purdy. Although, it's also pretty expensive, so when I visit the US I usually make a beeline for the nearest KS outlet, which often have amazing deals, particularly during big sales (I have two words: Black Friday).

The outlets are great for bargains, but often the decor is much plainer and they just don't have the atmosphere and quirkiness of regular Kate stores. One place I have wanted to visit for a few years now is Kate Spade's flagship store on Madison Avenue, New York, so when I knew I'd be spending a couple of days in the Big Apple during my recent trip to New England, I was like, yaaasssss!! 

Intu Metrocentre's Autumn/Winter #IntuFashion Event

On Monday night I took myself off to Intu Metrocentre for a night of Autumn fashion inspo in the centre's Style Garden at the main Town Square outside House of Fraser. As soon as I stepped into the garden I knew I was going to want EVERYTHING - the area was decked out with vintage style leather sofas draped in sumptuous fur throws and scattered with tweed cushions in rich, autumnal shades (courtesy of home decor store Baytree Interiors) - super cosy and inviting - and all around were gorgeous accessories from some of the centre's retailers. This Kate Spade lovely caught my eye immediately (predictable for me, I know - but isn't it a beaut?!)
