Cobble Hill Katie

I never pulled the trigger on my Kate Spade gift certificate, but now I think I’m finally ready.  This Cobble Hill Katie (my name…it must be fate!) is such a fun take on the classic bucket bag.  I love the yummy palamino leather, drawstring and chain detail.  What do you think?  I am horrible boring or is this a smart investment I’ll never regret?

    Gorgeous, but, consider the color in rainy San Francisco. I destroyed my mom’s beige YSL muse bag by carrying it in the rain :(

    Natalie — Awww, I’m flattered!

    Lena — I’m glad you agree!

    Sara — The persimmon is gorgeous as well! Decisions, decisions…

    Amanda — That is tragic! I will be sure to carry an umbrella at all times.

    Do it! I won a Temperley London bucket bag last Fall, the Aurora! It retails at nearly 800, and I just put it on Ebay for the Christian Louboutin fund…classics are key ;)

    Absolutely beautiful! Just browsed through all Kate Spade bags online, and I would have to say that Cobble Hill Katie would be my pick too. I really love how the drawstring closure emphasises the yummy softness of the leather. I think this would be one of those pieces you never regret purchasing. Have fun contemplating!

    Sometimes boring (or what I prefer to refer to as classic and elegant, wink) is better! Those jazzy scribble graffiti bags are sitting in thousands of girls closets collecting dust bunnies! xo

    A few words of warning: It may be annoying to get in and out of, depending on how you feel about it. I’d also recommend going and putting your things in it and opening and closing it a few times in the store before you pull the trigger.

    Also, be careful with the color. Dark denim tends to rub off on it, so you’ll want to be diligent about cleaning it, so pick up some leather cleaner while you’re there.

    Not to totally pimp my blog (but I’m going to anyway), but I wrote about how to pick out a purse here. Feel free to email any questions, too. My friends call me the purse whisperer for a reason!

    It’s just too perfect. It’s fate! Just think giving such a classic yet totally “of the time” bag to your little grandchildren all grown up :)

    I think it’s just LOVELY! It looks like a great size and I love that it is neutral enough to go with pretty much anything! I don’t think it’s boring at all :)

    One tip – watch out for dark jeans…if you wear the bag low and it sits on the top of your jeans, they might rub off some blue that’s impossible to remove!

    I think that is perfect for you. I love Kate Spade! I have the Five Points Camille bag in Graphite and I always wear it!

    it’s cute, and it has our names – but i’m much more attracted to the cobble hill leslie (in the same family). maybe i’m just not a bucket-kind-of-girl.

    Not sure if you already bought this but I noticed that Kate Spade had the red one on sale plus an additional 25% off and free shipping this weekend!
