Savannah Guthrie’s Pink and Tweed Dress
Today Show June 6, 2018 Fashion
In honor of the tragic loss of major fashion icon Kate Spade, Savannah Guthrie’s pink tweed dress was part of the iconic fashion house. What an awful story. I was quite shocked about this, with a friend of mine likening it to the loss Robin Williams. Just the sunny facade of the most charming brand will always put a smile on my face and have sentimental meaning. In fact, last year Kate Spade came out with a small purse with stars that actually light up. I didn’t buy it immediately, figuring it will go on sale, but then it sold out EVERYWHERE. I was desperate to find it but still couldn’t, not on eBay, not on poshmark. Nada. But my house is filled with her housewares as well, and my office has her tape dispenser, paper holder, filing box and knick knack collector. With amazing and day-brightening little phrases, her legacy will live on. And with everyone sharing old stories about their first Kate Spade bag- here’s mine. Oddly enough, I wrote about Kate Spade a few weeks ago on this blog, fondly remembering the same memory then.
In 7th grade all the girls were gifted a Kate Spade bag. Yes, much earlier than most 16 or high school or college grads. But that was where we grew up. I digress- I did not get gifted a Kate spade bag. So I scraped some money together and bought a makeup bag that I used as a clutch to all of the parties. I wore it proudly, like a mature adult with a clutch at hand. And I still have it under my sink with makeup in it and could never let it go. Then I finally got some more money and bought the classic gold Kate Spade bag. Everyone had it in black but true to myself, I bought a gold one because it was before gold came back. I still love it and have it sitting in my closet, and will now look at it every day and remember Kate.
