and speaking of Kate... (gen says)

From Gen (who apologizes for her long absence, things have been busy!):

"I just came across an old issue of the World of Interiors which features one of my all-time favorite homes---Kate Spade's apartment in NYC's Upper East Side. I am a HUGE fan of all things 'Kate.' She has a knack for combining the perfect amount of vintage inspiration- re-imagined with a modern twist, in just the color that I am craving!

I think I could be quite happy in a complete Kate Spade world. 

Check our her huge sale -and my hostess outfit of choice (for my fantasy "Kate Spade" dinner party, of course). "
