Carinn x OOTD: A Date with Kate

TGIF! I'm back in KL again, this time on a mini vacation with my family! And even though I'm away, I still decided to do keep to my promise and do an outfit post on Friday. Teehee. I'm sure you've seen this outfit and these items before because I've posted them on Instagram. I had a sudden burst of inspiration to do an outfit out of these beautiful pieces from my favourite brand, Kate Spade.

I am one blessed girl to be able to get all these lovely Kate Spade items from If you've been my reader these past few months, you'll know that I love this site from the USA that provides FREE international shipping and authentic branded goods, so I always get my items within a week of placing my order. The prices are wayyy more affordable than buying from Malaysia so you can understand why I spent so much on these babies - they are totally worth every penny!

I chose this fuschia bodycon dress, suitable for a classy high tea session. The dress may look simple, but it actually has a chevron pattern if you look closely which gives the dress a different texture altogether. The dress hugs the body perfectly and falls just above the knee which gives off the illusion of elongated legs. I find that the fuschia stands out exceptionally well against the colourful backdrop!

You've seen this zebra bag in most of my outfit posts so I needn't say more except that I love how versatile it is because I get to wear it two ways. They say big things come in small packages. You'd be surprised at how roomy the bag is. Not only is it the perfect size for me, it can even fit my iPad Mini with ease!

While I wasn't expecting the watch to be so tiny, I've now come to appreciate its intricate designand elegance. I have a tiny wrist, so the watch is lighweight and small enough for me. See how pretty the gold rim stands out from the leather floral straps! The leather straps are the selling point for me because the design is truly one-of-a-kind. It's also the perfect accompaniment to my iPad cover which illustrates a carefree lady in tango class. The cover is made of neoprene in the front and plastic behind. It can quite heavy but it definitely is not bulky. I like the fact that it has the Kate Spade logo in front and inside, there is a stand that can prop the iPad up horizontally or vertically. Come to think of it, my outfit does look like that drawing.. Lol! 

Sunshine, coffee and pretty murals. A simple, classy outfit for a date with Kate (Spade). Seeing the classic gold Kate Spade logo puts a smile on my face. What do you think about this ladylike outfit of mine? Let me know in the comments below and hype me on Lookbook if you've enjoyed my post!
