Fashionista Friday: Caren’s Kate Spade LBB (Little Black Bag)

Fashionistas, there’s nothing like finding a fabulous handbag at a Goodwill store. But when it’s designer, you’ve really found something special. The feeling you get inside is extraordinary! It’s almost indescribable.

I bet that very incredible emotion is how today’s Fashionista Friday felt when she found this little black Kate Spade bag at her local Goodwill. In fact, I felt a little bit of excitement just seeing this on my Instagram feed when searching #MyGoodwillFind!

I am so jealous. I’ve found some Kate Spade gems at DC stores (check out my Instagram for my latest Kate Spade necklace find!). But I haven’t seen a bag like this… yet.

Before I rave on about this stellar steal I want you to get to know today’s Fashionista Friday.

Caren is a Goodwill goddess and Chicago resident (yay for fashionistas across the country using our hashtag!) who loves all things fashion, gaming, hockey, and make-up. She really does have a variety of unique interests. But the one that brings me closest to her is a love of Goodwill shopping!

If you look at her page, @OnceUponaTimeInCarensWorld, you’ll notice that she has an eye for designer finds and good deals.

Recently, she found this cute and on-trend Kate Spade bag at her local Goodwill store for under $7! It’s clearly in pristine condition; with the gold hardware and embellishments perfectly intact.

If I had found this bag it would be my new favorite accessory in an instant. I’d style it with a cute cupcake skirt, boat neck striped top, pink necklace, and some booties to truly embrace the essence of Kate Spade.

With that look I’d rock this bag both around the body or on my forearm. What’s great about this find is the ability for it to be worn in multiple ways. It’s rare to find a crossbody bag with the strap included so I’d undoubtedly use this feature if it’s available.

Thanks Caren for sharing your find with me on Instagram! I can’t wait to see what else is in store. It looks like I should take a trip to Chicago this year 🙂
