Looking at Kate Spade creations, even when I couldn't afford them, brightened many dull days in my life. My key chain, cell phone cases, and of course handbags big and small are all Kate Spade! I can't get enough of her work! Being a unique individual always comes with pangs of isolation. I wonder if she took her life in such a moment of isolation, forgetting how many lives are connected to hers. I'm sad that I won't get to see what new ideas she comes up with in the years to come.
