WIW 1/27, 29, 31: Four eyes cubed and KS typewriter bag!

So fun! DH gave me a Kate Spade gift card for Christmas, and it didn't take long to use it. I happened to come across a surprise one-day sale at Kate Spade.com and they had this typewriter bag on sale. They were bringing back the greatest hits from past handbag seasons. Felt like I'm cheating on Ms. Scarlet, but I totally could not resist this whimsical purse! I also picked up these Kate Spade reversible glasses pendants. One is black and red, and the other is tortoiseshell and gold. Super fun to bookend my specs with these glasses necklaces. I'm a secretary in #1 and a librarian in #8, and I don't know what in #5 (tornado tamer?). #1 is my favorite and so me with the matchy matchy details (did you notice the polka dots in the skirt and the iPhone case match the typewriter keys on the bag?) :)

  • viva replied 6 years ago

    That bag is so, so fun! Just love it -- and also love the tornado accessories: so cute! :)
    What brand are those beautiful Mary Janes?

  • Aubergine replied 6 years ago

    That bag rules! So do the glasses pendants -- I might need the tortoiseshell version myself. And all the looks are so fun!

    Great bag - whimsy at its best! 

  • Joy replied 6 years ago

    Your new bag is perfect to add a touch of whimsy, as are the spec pendants. I did notice the details of typewriter keys and your dotted skirt, also the white on the bag with your white shirt.

    Aaaah! That bag is adorable! So is the glasses pendant. Love BOTH of your outfits… ladylike and whimsical at the same time. You look great.

    That bag is fabulous Natalie!

    Thanks so much rute, viva, Aubergine, shevia, Joy, el Cee and Shannnon!

    Viva, the taupe Mary Jane heels are Chie Mihara. I got them at Anthro and they called them "Written In Stars" heels.

    Aubergine, I hope you do get a pair! I got them on sale at Kate Spade but it doesn't look like they're available any more, but maybe on eBay?

    They remind me of the reading glasses that people used to wear on a chain around their neck. Very retro, esp. with the typewriter bag. I wonder what the whimsical retro items will look like when our kids grow up...purses that look like iPhones? Haha!

  • catgirl replied 6 years ago

    Such a fun look - can't miss the matchiness!

  • Angie replied 6 years ago

    Only you could pull off these looks. So fun. An so Natalie. Bet your kids love those pieces too. xo

    Great bag!  It's so fun and goes with your style so well.  I also really like your glasses necklace and the outfits you put together with it.  I don't think I've seen the tan shoes in #11 before and like the details on them.  They also seem very "you".

    BTW - great job of taking selfies while holding the baby.  I have a hard enough time taking my own pics with no distractions.

    You are amazing Natalie!! Looking so fab (LOVE #1) and managing active home life. Never a dull moment I'm sure!

  • rae replied 6 years ago

    Your matchy flair is adorable, and the bag is amazing! That is art right there.

  • Karie replied 6 years ago

    That bag is the best! Serious matchy-match fun!

  • Aubergine replied 6 years ago

    Goldenpig, I may have to look on Ebay and see if I can track some down! And I'm totally waiting for the day when I see some young whippersnapper with a "retro" iPhone bag!

  • deb replied 6 years ago

    The bag is too much fun and you wear it well, you tomato tamer, you.

  • karymk replied 6 years ago

    Okay are you the cutest lil mama in the world or what!

  • JAileen replied 6 years ago

    I don't know how you're able to take any pics with all the activity all around you!

    The typewriter is a really fun piece. Also your shoes are cool.

    I love the matchy matchy. In my book it's a good thing.

    Love your style, Natalie. That bag is TDF.
