Love you Kate

I look at my beautiful watch much differently since you passed. I wish time would just rewind so you would be back with us.
As I look at the beautiful glasses klinking with sparkling bubbles and the word Cheers I want to believe you made that with me in mind. I choose you to be my Mood Swing Wines angel I just wish we could have had a second glass together!
Cheers and love,

"I feel like I knew you!" I loved your brand and am proud to be a fan of Kate Spade.... May God be with you. Until later, may you rest in peace. My first handbag purchase was for my mother as a gift. It was a pretty large amount including a wallet as well. A few years later, I finally bought myself a handbag/wallet(s) and ironically it was only 2-weeks before your death.

Very sad that Kate Spade is no longer here, sharing her creativity and passion. I have my first Kate Spade bag that I purchased in 1998, as a young professional finally able to afford one, and have been a devoted fan ever since. Her bags seemed to reflect what I saw of her in interviews, practical, with a bit of whimsy. Hearing of her death, was a shock, and still remains so, may she Rest In Peace now.

Coming from a person that has suffered depression since a child, and Bipolar since a teen, I understand the desperation to try and find an escape from the living hell the disease causes. Everyday is a battle to stay on top of the debilitating disease.
I loved Kate's sense of style and fashion. I will forever treasure the pieces of her collection that I've purchased.
My thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones she left behind.
Dear Kate, may you Rest In Peace.

I have so many Kate Spade bags - too many to count. I have always loved your bags and the adorable messages that came with each of them. You brought so much joy, happiness and sparkle to a girls life with your fun and whimsical designs. I will treasure each and every piece I own. I'm sorry you couldn't find your own sparkle. I pray you're at peace. For your family: I pray you can find your own peace during such a difficult time.

I am deeply saddened by Kate's passing and would like to offer my heartfelt condolences to her family and friends and all who have been impacted by her passing. The Kate Spade brand really appealed to me and I got my first bag about two years ago and have always treasured it and now I really will. Kate showed us the type of person she was through her imagination which came out in the stylish designs and neon colors of
