Spring :: Kate Spade & Cult Gaia Ark (dupe)

_MG_8370

I finally got my hands on the the Cult Gaia Ark … dupe and I LOVE IT so much! It was highly coveted last year and even this year and honestly, I don’t know why I waited. I wanted a Spring/Summer bag that I would put to use for the majority of the warmer months and this bag definitely fits the mold and more! The original one runs 150.00 (for the small) and 170.00 (for the large) but I wasn’t sure a ‘wooden bag’ was something that I would keep in wardrobe for years to come. So I purchased the small size (dimensions are : 11 in height x 10 in length x 3 in depth) from Amazon. And it cost me four times less then it would have which is great!

For such a summery bag, I paired it with this shirt dress from Express (petite). The long sleeves are perfect the cooler months of Spring, but the fabric is so lightweight that it can be worn into Summer too.

And of course, my favorite Spring buy are these mule slides from Kate Spade. When these first came out back in 2017, they were running at 298.00 and I couldn’t justify spending so much for a pair of shoes. I do believe in quality over quantity but I find it hard to pull that rule card out for shoes because they get worn and tethered a lot quicker than any other piece of material item I wear. So I kept it in my “to buy” list until the beginning of February this year and went through with the purchase .. on Amazon .. again. But instead of paying 298.00, I bought them for 80.00, which is a justifiable price to me.
What are your great Spring purchase(s) of 2018?
