FALL BAG GIVEAWAY Sweepstakes from Shopping and Info for a Kate Spade bag

on September 24th, 2008

October 30, 2008 – Winner announcement: Thank you everyone for entering the contest/ The winner has been picked- Suzanne from Ossining, NY – congrats Suzanne. She got her bag and bracelet yesterday and here is her testimonial:

“Wow! When I found out I had won the Kate Spade Fall Giveaway, that’s all I could say! I love perusing Shopping and Info for the latest styles, where to find them, and great sales and never thought I’d win this big! Then it arrived… and I’m still a bit dumbfounded! The bag is a fabulous rich caramel (with a hint of deep red) colored crocodile embossed patent leather with a partial chain strap that’s the perfect length. Open it up and you’ll find gorgeous kelly green signature Kate Spade lining (which sets off the caramel beautifully) with roomy pockets that’ll fit my iPhone and iPod or sunglasses as well as a zippered compartment. The link bracelet is classic and elegant, and on me chunky enough to be trendy and fresh looking. These are the first Kate Spade products I’ve owned and I’m really pleased with the quality and workmanship as well as wearability. I’ll be able to use both pieces either casual or dressy as they are classic pieces I can fit in with anything in my wardrobe. Today I have some errands to run in NYC, so I’ll be using both the handbag and bracelet for the first time and pairing them with a casual jeans look (its freezing in NY, so its bundle up time!) and can’t wait to show off to my friends! Halloween is my wedding anniversary and over the weekend we’ll be going out to a swanky restaurant, so my goodies will get a chance to shine in a dressier setting. Thank you so much Shopping and Info and Kate Spade for this amazing gift! And thank you Shopping and Info for not only making the world of fashion so accessible, but also for highlighting the sales and specials that help me to be affordably chic! Cheers! Suzanne aka Punk Glam Queen”.

Kate Spade Celebrity Dinner #2 Alyssa Milano and Amanda Detmer attended for the Kate Spade bag launch EXCLUSIVE STORY

on September 24th, 2008


with a FALL BAG GIVEAWAY at the end of this story.

September 24, 2008 – 7:30P
BLT Steak on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, CA
Kate Spade Celebrity Dinner #2
I attended the intimate celebrity dinner last night at the BLT Steak hosted by Kate Spade to launch the Knightsbridge Scarlet bag.

Alyssa Milano and Amanda Detmer who are now filming the show “Single with Parents” for ABC were there to catch up with friends in the industry, as well as to check out the new Kate Spade Knightsbridge bag.

I sat next to Alyssa for dinner and found out some important information from her:

See the sign she is holding – she wanted us to know that the media picked up the wrong information at the 2008 Emmy Awards Red Carpet Preshow. She was not at the Emmy Awards and she did not wear that white dress that everyone said she was wearing. It was a case of mistaken identity. I saw the photos and I cannot imagine how anyone could have mistaken the woman wearing the white dress with Alyssa Milano. She was a good sport about it, and just thought it was quite funny.

And just for Shopping and Info readers, she gave us important information: I asked her – Whose dress are you wearing. She said ” Check the label in my dress to be sure.” I checked and she was wearing INA SOLTANI. Her shoes were MIU MIU.

The dinner was fun in the private dining area of BLT Steak. The food just kept coming. We started with a selection of salads, a beautiful cube of Tuna Tartare with spicy wasabe, and dinner was a selection of fish, steak, and chicken. Dessert was the out of the world selection of peanut butter chocolate mousse with banana ice cream, a caramel confection. Drinks were wine, and mojitos. BLT Steak is a must go if you are ever in Hollywood.

I have included photos from Kate Spade’s dinner below.

Enter for a chance to win the gorgeous patent Kate Spade Knightsbridge Scarlet bag in the Caramel color along with the fabulous Kate Spade gold link bracelet that was given to Alyssa Milano, Amanda Detmer, and Tracey Edmonds. Just click here to go to the official sweepstakes page to enter for your chance to win the Kate Spade bag and bracelet now.
