Kate Spade party & Fashion Forward, Giving Back


Hello everyone. I hope you had a wonderful few days off and are ready to enter the fall season rested and relaxed. Our holiday weekend kicked off with a summer barbecue on Friday night hosted by yours truly and family. This was our first time entertaining with a baby and I think we did a fantastic job if I may say so myself. To be honest, it was very therapeutic…planning the menu, shopping, doing all the prep and then enjoying the evening as our friends enjoyed themselves at our home. It was wonderful to know that yes, we could have a babes and still be ourselves. Granted, we were beat the next day but all the cleaning and leftovers were totally worth every minute of the night before. Cheers to parties with friends who don’t mind if a baby is in the mix. Thanks guys!

Now, onto what’s really important…So there is this store that I write about, drool about and fuss over from time to time…Kate Spade, heard of it? Yes of course you have.

The Kate Spade store in Beachwood Mall and I are hosting a very fun evening of shopping, special offers, a purse giveaway and lots of other glittery fun on Saturday, September 13th. This event is part of the benefit that Beachwood Place Mall is hosting in conjunction with the Cleveland Clinic’s Children’s Hostpital called “Fashion Forward, Giving Back.”

Enjoy an entire day and night of fashion as you support a nationally recognized children’s hospital. Purchase a $25 shopping pass and you’ll have access to event discounts, a fashion show, sample makeovers, children’s activities and other fun surprises. The fundraiser runs all day from 10am-9pm but the Kate Spade party is from 6-8pm, don’t miss out.
