Item/Brand: Kate Spade dress, new with tags
Color: Hot Pink
Wearing Suggestions: Funny, in a way, that this Kate Spade dress is called “The Siren Dress.” We’re not sure if they meant this to be a double entendre or not, but it makes us giggle a bit. Is it a siren as in the loud blaring sound of a fire engine? The color is bright enough to conjure up that image! Or, is it a siren in the sense that you will entice and allure men to their demise? We love the idea that the designers at Kate Spade left that open-ended for our speculation.
The style is a flattering sheath, but not in a bodycon way, it hugs your curves, but flounces out at the hem for easy walking and a bit of sass. Its darted bateau neckline makes it perfectly suitable for a work environment, and it would match beautifully with a tailored jacket. We’d love to see a polka dot blazer with an elbow length sleeve. For dinner or date night, go bare armed, or toss a solid color pashmina over your shoulders.
We were just starting to post this dress into our online store, when we saw the news item that Kate Spade had been found dead in her New York apartment. It’s shocking and heartbreaking. Kate was only 55 and seemingly had it all: success, notoriety and talent. So, there it is. The news has cast a pall over our writing about this dress. At the same time, we should take a lesson that color and beauty are to be celebrated in the same way that this Kate Spade dress calls out. We mourn her loss. As Kate says on her labels: “Look for the silver lining.” Reach out to someone who may be struggling. Offer a hand or a shoulder. We can all use it sometime.
Materials: Viscose blend
Condition: New with tags
Details:Adorable flounced hem adds a lot of personality to this simply designed sheath dress. The black patent belt is a shiny pop at the waist!
