People use Kate Spade's death to begin a serious conversation about depression
It's easy to take a cynical approach to consumerism. To the world of fashion and frivolous purchases.
I always get annoyed when someone appreciates the brand arsenal as a name brand, and I find it pretty disgusting when people seem to care more about being successful than actually succeeding in something to do their life that is fulfilled and meaningful for them.

But that does not mean that the beautiful things in life are wrong because it is not so
For many people who earn these beautiful things by hard work or deal with something To celebrate an honesty milestone, the world means for you. That's why I appreciated the video games I got after I broke my ass at school or saved enough money when the rich kids just got the game on a Tuesday from their parents because they just existed ,
One of the best things about buying these finer things is when you give them to someone else. I love to surprise my wife with presents and see her face light up when I show her. One of her favorite designers was Kate Spade, who unfortunately committed suicide recently

I'm over the message of Kate Spade heartbroken. I have worn her clothes many, many times. They were colorful, brave, happy and encouraged women to find the sparkling person in them. They could not go to their boutiques and not smile. Rest in Peace, Kate

In 2003, I wore a Kate Spade bag. Her bags represented class, sophistication, and the kind of woman I pretended to be in NY as a broken young reporter. One day I got a spontaneous assignment to interview Spade – while I was doing the knocking. 1/3

During the interview, I hid the bag under the coat on my arm. Spade tried to discreetly see what I was wearing. She was nice to me and smart. After that, I shared the shameful story with a guy I just started with. A few days later I got a Macy's package. 2/3

For many, Spade's products represented the first "real" purse they had ever bought, and the great feelings that came with getting what they really wanted.
My first "good" purse was a black nylon Kate Spade shoulder bag. I asked my mother for it. I felt so special and I loved to wear it.
Thank you for making me feel special, Kate.

When I got a job With a livable wage, one of my first purchases was a Kate Spade. I was so proud that I could buy something for MYSELF that was a better quality and more of an investment than the bags I was wearing. That's so sad.

So gutted, to hear the news about Kate Spade. KS has given me so much pleasure over the years. That sounds silly, but I've always bought KS bags & etc for myself and my loved ones if I could. That's awful.

I stole a kate spade purse from a department store at the age of 15 and carried it every day for years. I was a poor child in a rich school. this bag was like armor and camouflage and a hall pass that reduced the pain of being on the wrong side of the economic gulf of my high school.

Others testified to the quality of Spade's products. For a bag from the 90s, that's pretty impressive.
