Things We Love: Kate Spade shopper

From the July 12, 2012 edition

I love a pretty handbag, but this one adds wit to the mix. I love reading the Kate Spade-isms in the “classified ads” in the print of this go-anywhere tote. Among my favorites: “NECKLACE FOUND Gold chain with monogram. If you can describe it and what’s printed on it it’s yours. Found in the sand on Coney Island near the hot dog stand.” The designer made a whole series of bags, pouches and accessories in this pattern. They’ve since left the outlets, but you might snag one via eBay.
