Kate Spade’s Wedding Belles & “Commemorate Your Indifference”

Hello-Hello, and welcome to a weekend.  Well, almost. Kinda’-sorta’-not-really-but-we-act-like-it-is-anyway-because-it-makes-us-smile-and-act-goofy.

Once again we are brief as we continue catching up with Princess duties, so we jump right in with happy news from Kate Spade. You might guess that for someone who blathers on relentlessly occasionally chats about weddings we were were excited to see that the company has launched Kate Spade Wedding Belles collection.

Other dresses include the Naomi (L) and the Aubrey Wrap Dress (R).

The collection officially launched last week, bridesmaid dresses, shoes, jewelry and other accessories are also offered.  (For anyone in the city this Wednesday, the line debuts at the flagship store on Fifth, there is a little party between 6-8pm)

A quick reminder, we are in the middle of the Kate Spade Friends & Family promotion.

To receive 25% off your order and free shipping, use discount code FFSPR11 at checkout, the promotion ends tomorrow night (Saturday, the 9th) at midnight.


Next, for those fond of tracking the varying versions of “Preppy is Back,” or “Preppy Style Returns,” etc., we share a look at Fab Sugar’s “The Return of Preppy”.

From the post:

“Just between us, I’m actually embracing many of the “classic preppy” looks that we’re seeing so much of in the current magazine issues.”

In the spirit of Friday fun we must share the following, the perfect gift for those not as obsessed not quite as intrigued as some of us are with the upcoming royal nuptials.

Via "Sorry But..."

The limited edition mugs are the creation of Sorry But…., a British company with the motto “Commemorate your indifference.” An utterly brilliant item IOHO, unfortunately the mugs aren’t available stateside, so anyone interested needs to have a pal across the pond order the mug and then send it your way. By the way, 10% of all sales proceeds are being donated to a charity for Stoke-on-Trent, where English fine china originated, currently facing the highest unemployment rate in the UK.

On that wacky note, goodbye until next time, may the sun be shining on you and yours this weekend!

  1. Oh wow. That Melody dress is gorgeous.

  2. Amy

    I love that mug and think I need to get one now! 🙂 Happy Weekend!

  3. LOVE the Elanore dress…the styling is so elegant, wish it wasnt white so I could buy it and be done with it for my nephews wedding next month! Beautiful…love Kate Spade..buy a lot of her clothes and accessories..such a great line. The mug is a riot and I have a hunch will be sold out in no time! Have a great weekend.

  4. Hello hello! Hope you’re having a good start to the weekend & a bit of a break.

    Love that KS is venturing into bridal . . . her clothing & accessory lines are just to die for, if also a smidge too pricey in my opinion.

    That mug is simply beyond; unfortunately I fall on the other, wee bit preoccupied (ahem) side of the equation, so I’ve already secured my London friend’s shipping address & am mulling over a few souvenir *necessities*.

  5. I’ve fallen behind on my daily news… I see lots of fun posts to catch up on! Hope the Consort is doing well.
    Have a great weekend!

  6. The mug is sacrilege! 😉 Although I am a tad disappointed to read this week that Kate likes to puff away on ciggies and that Wills hates it. Oh my, royal strife already in the making. That said I still give the marriage ~ happily ever after!! 🙂

  7. The pink stockings and teal shoes…Swoon!!! Tres chic yet edgy, I love it.

  8. Great entry!!! I received the Kate Spade Melody dress as a gift and I’m wearing it on Easter Sunday. Great job with your blog. Always LOVE reading it.
