Kate Spade is one of my favourite brands (probably talking top three; the cheerful products, playful prints and bold palette lift my spirits - the prices not so much, but hey), so when I was invited with one of my favourite girls to a shopping evening at the American brand's Covent Garden store to peruse the AW13 collections, pick up a freebie lipstick, eat ridiculously girly glitter cupcakes and drink fizz *sigh* fine, obliged.
