This is my first Kate Spade clothing item and I’m very impressed.  I never knew Kate Spade had a 00 until I found this skirt at Nordstrom Rack.  As I mentioned in my previous post, I took the risk of shrinking it and luckily, it worked out for me. I only dried it on low for less than one full cycle and it shrunk just enough to fit me comfortably.  The lining will probably need to be taken up a little but for now, it’s not peeking out. 
I ordered this Cleo A-line dress in a 00 and was curious to see if it would fit.  I really wanted the teal color but it was sold out so I opted for this bright orange.  I’m happy to report Kate Spade is petite friendly! The back has a low scoop so my bra peeks out a little (not work appropriate) and I don’t want to wear a convertible bra.  I love the fit and color ( plus it has pockets) but for this price, it has to be perfect.

  1. I love this skirt! I made my first Kate Spade purchase this past December– a retro plaid wool coat. It made the winter much more enjoyable!!

  2. Such a cheery summer outfit Annie. I love your neutral accessories especially the Miss Vara crossbody and the bow pumps. I’m looking forward to your AT reviews. I walked by AT today but I didn’t go in. I tend to have better luck with LOFT than I do with AT. 🙂 It’s a shame that the Kate Spade dress didn’t work out but it’s for the best. I actually like the orange color more than the teal you were eying. I only own Kate Spade accessories but I love their clothes too. I just never seem to pull the trigger when they’re having a sale.

  3. love your outfit Annie it reminds me of a true southern belle from the good ole south! lol
