    I was SO bummed when I couldn't find that Kate Spade in pink on the website, that I did a little digging, and found it in a GLAMOROUS metallic gold! SO EXCITED! It will be the perfect accessory for ALL seasons, and a great metallic never goes out of style! Thanks for the nudge… we have Kate Spade sister bags! haha!
