Criss Cross with Kate Spade

A couple summer brews and a few new tan lines later, the weekend has come to a close. It might be safe to say that summer has settled in, however you can never speak too soon. Snow in the coming days is a high possibility when you live in Chicago.

My post-L.A. high had fizzled; I was having designer cupcake withdrawals… wouldn’t you? During my trip, I read The Man Repeller from the creative mind of Leandra Medine. When you look up “blogger” in the dictionary, you will either find Leandra or her harem pants – either image would suffice. I have been a fan of her hilarity and man-repelling looks for years. A while back, my friend and I went to an event at the Chicago Art Institute. My outfit went something like this: chambray top, massive gold chain necklace, black maxi skirt and black platform wedged booties. Before she said hello, she asked me if I was planning on man repelling that night? Naive to what she meant, I immediately researched The Man Repeller to find my sister from another mister. The book is hilarious, insightful and relatable (e.g. Chapter – Period Panties).

Off subject from the Man Repeller would be my proudest find at a TJ Maxx – this Kate Spade Saturday dress. It was one of those moments where I checked the tag a few times to make sure my eyes weren’t playing tricks on me. The price tag made my debit card smile and the silhouette made me dance – we were fast friends. New summer dress in my wheel-house – CHECK! Event to wear it to – CHECK!

Happy Monday!!
