Just like many other fashionistas all over the world, I’ve been a longtime fan of the brand you created. I have so many Kate Spade items from jewelry to handbags, books to homegoods. I always felt the brand reminded me of Tiffany Golightly from the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s (one of my favorite movies!) and defined my vintage, girly, classic style.
Yesterday was my birthday and as I celebrated my life my life, it’s so heartbreaking to know that she had taken her own. Mental Illness is a real serious issue; not just here in America but all over the world. I always say that my favorite quote is “Be Kind. Everyone is fighting an internal battle you know nothing about”. Words can kill or cure a person, you never know. If you know someone that’s depressed, sad or having a really tough time thru lives obstacles, reach out to them, check up on them and ask them to talk to a professional if/when needed. If you are having feelings of self harm, please seek help.
