Make a Quick Getaway

And make sure Kate Spade is your accessory

Need to make a quick getaway with the girls this weekend? Summer is the perfect time of year for last minute plans and first class fun. Whether sitting poolside at your favorite resort or sinking your toes in the sand by the ocean, there are one or two things to think about. Too bad you can’t just hop on a plane to Maui and be done with it! It’s easy enough to get caught up in the details of  which beaches and restaurants make the itinerary, but at least you now know what luggage to take.

If plans are just for the weekend, the Classic Nylon Lyla Weekender bag by Kate Spade is designed to help fit all the essentials—even if that does just mean six swimsuits and sunscreen. This travel bag is bright green, the it-color for this season, and covered with big pink, purple, blue and white flowers that will cheer up any outfit.

Made with a 14-karat light gold plated hardware, the weekender is also embossed with the Kate Spade New York signature and light gold spade on the front. A zipper at the top can completely close the bag, keeping your belongings safe from spilling out while relaxing at the beach. An optional, adjustable cross-body strap is included for easy carry through the airport, or long walks around town. Take off the cross-body strap to easily convert the weekender bag to an oversized purse.

If having a go-to bag that holds all the necessities is a high priority, then Kate Spade had you in mind when designing this weekender bag. It’s brightly colored, light enough to carry and big enough to hold everything a girl could need for those quick weekend getaways.

Cat’s Eye View

Sophisticated Sunglasses

Cat eye frames were popular amongst fashion forward women of the mid 20th century. At this time women were seeing and taking new perspectives in the world and eyewear became a fashion accessory—not just a medical necessity. Women of the day threw themselves wholeheartedly into the purchase of eyewear as a fashion statement that enhanced their appearance as well as their vision.

Characterized by rounded frames that flare out near the temples, cat’s eye glasses were all the rage in the 1950s and 60s. The vintage oval lenses were often adorned with rhinestones, metal or other playful embellishments at the temple. Not to be outdone, the “brows” of the frames also bore striking ornamental effects at its top edges. It all gave the wearer a sophisticated and elegant look, which still shines more than half a century later.

Ideal for women with square or diamond faces, the iconic frames are once again back in fashion, especially for today’s women wanting to showcase their own elegant, fun and sophisticated personalities.

 Michael Kors Miranda Brazil sunglasses, $245 From Project Runway to Michelle Obama’s dress for her first official portrait, New York native and super designer Michael Kors has done it all. His fashion house’s take on the cat’s eye silhouette features tinted lenses and flatters all face shapes. In black it’s a nod to Old Hollywood glamour, and in tortoise brown (shown) it’s a-can’t-miss statement that goes with everything.


Coach Coby sunglasses, $178 

Crafted exclusively for Coach by a premier Italian eyewear maker, you won’t be able to hide behind these retro-inspired glasses with their bold red color. Gold elements at the bridge and temples bring a touch of elegance to this ultimately fun pair of seasonal shades.



Coach Signature Cat Eye sunglasses, $220

Inspired with a “Signature Spray” of the brand’s iconic “C” motif these fashion forward frames have colored crystal fronts, gradient lenses and elegant Swarovski stones at the temples. High style and sparkle meets state-of-the-art UV protection.
