OMG #KateSpade you never know what people are carrying with them inside. My 1st bag was a hot pink carry all that I knew I would have to wait to use until I got out of the military but got it anyway.

My first Kate Spade bag gifted by my sister accompanied me on all consults and still has the marks of all the puppies who teethed on it. Will treasure it forever for so many beautiful reasons.
R.I.P beautiful woman, you brought much sparkle to so many lives. #RIP #katespade pic.twitter.com/dWt6PJSvsf

#Katespade was the first nice bag I ever treated myself to. I had no idea when I took this picture that the person behind it might be hurting. This is a harsh reminder to check in on people even if you don├óΓé¼Γäót think they├óΓé¼Γäóre struggling. #SuicidePrevention pic.twitter.com/ViRdVDVl1p
