I’ve always had a soft spot for Kate Spade. Coincidentally, I’ve also been known to spend hours upon hours browsing in my beloved local Tar-jay. It was only a matter of time before I noticed that many of the pieces I had glimpsed in the jewelry department were very close relatives to some much pricier earrings. I was absolutely thrilled at this groundbreaking discovery. I imagine that my reaction was quite similar to that of the guys who discovered that the world was indeed round. of course, I couldn’t help but share this newfound knowledge with the blogosphere, so here you are. Kate Spade on a (really tight) budget.
