Even though it’s still technically winter, I’m already in spring cleaning mode. I’ve spent the past few weeks going through each and every drawer, bin, basket, and closet in our home, and I’ve been brutal about editing down our collection of stuff – including my wardrobe. As I was going through my closet, I realized that I have two distinct categories of fashion items that I own: 1. things that I wear over and over again until they fall apart and 2. things that have literally never been worn more than once (if at all).
I decided that it was finally time for me to get rid of those items for good. After all, what’s the use of having a closet full of clothes and accessories if you only use 25% of what you own? After I cleared out all of my unused or lightly-used items (more on that later this week), I had a streamlined but somewhat bare bones closet that only contained items I truly loved. As I was pairing down my wardrobe, I noticed a clear trend in the items I decided to keep. They all featured classic lines, high-quality materials, and great construction.
Another thing that I noticed was that I kept every single Kate Spade piece that I owned. I’m not exaggerating when I say I removed at least 60% of the clothing and accessories I owned from my closet, so it’s pretty impressive to me that I wanted to keep 100% of the items from a single brand. That’s why I was over-the-moon excited to see that there’s an awesome Kate Spade sale happening on eBay this week! Keep reading to see my top picks from the sale and a few of my all-time favorite Kate Spade pieces. P.S. There’s also an ah-mazing Tory Burch sale happening too!

As I’m rebuilding my wardrobe, I have a clear vision in mind. I want to create a curated closet where all of the items can go together and be worn for all types of events. My dream is to be able to close my eyes, reach out and grab a random hanger, and love whatever I happened to grab. That’s why I’m investing in staple pieces like this navy Kate Spade handbag. It has a classic design that will never go out of style, and it’s just as appropriate for business meetings as it is for a trip to the mall.
This bag would go with almost all of the outfits in my wardrobe, and it holds all of my everyday essentials without looking too bulky. If you’re looking for a ladylike handbag, I highly recommend investing in a Kate Spade purse – especially while they’re on sale at eBay! Speaking of ladylike must-haves, can we talk about how absolutely gorgeous these blush velvet pearl heels are? They also come in black velvet, they are an absolute steal. Seriously, such a great bargain for a shoe that’s this pretty!

Another one of my Kate Spade obsessions is this gorgeous blush bow watch. It’s lightweight on your wrist, but it packs a huge punch when it comes to style. The bow is adorable but isn’t too big or too obnoxiously girly, and it honestly looks like a piece of jewelry in addition to being a functional watch. I’m partial to this feminine blush color, but it’s available in quite a few colors. I paid full price for mine several years ago, but you can grab the same watch in brand-new, still-in-the-box condition on eBay right now for a fraction of the cost that I paid.
In case you weren’t aware, 81% of the merchandise sold on eBay is new and available with the “Buy It Now” option, so there’s no bidding necessary. Plus, 69% of the items have free shipping. Oh, and did I mention that there are approximately 1.1 billion listings on eBay at any given time? Yup, you read that right. 1.1 BILLION. As I’m rebuilding my closet, I have absolutely loved the unique items I’ve been able to purchase on eBay while my little girl plays by my side. The only thing better than shopping at home is shopping at home with free shipping and great prices haha!

As I mentioned earlier, there’s a huge Kate Spade sale going on right now at eBay, and I picked up two new pieces from the sale that I know are going to be in my accessory collection for decades to come. I’ve literally been eyeing the Kate Spade Sailor’s Knot Hinge Bangle for at least three years, but I never bit the bullet. After noticing how much I wear my other Kate Spade jewelry, I decided it was finally time to buy this beautiful bracelet – especially since it’s on sale. I chose the gold version because it matches the most pieces in my collection, but it’s also available in rose gold and silver. I also picked up the stunning Disco Pansy Cuff Bracelet (also part of eBay’s Kate Spade Sale), and I love how well it coordinates with the jewelry I already have in my collection – including my all-time favorite Kate Spade earrings that are on sale right now.
If you’ve looked at Kate Spade jewelry before and scoffed at the price, let me tell you my experience. I have owned lots of different brands and price points of jewelry over the years. Without a doubt, my Kate Spade jewelry has held up the best out of all of the brands that I’ve owned. All of my Kate Spade pieces look brand new – even the items that are well-used and several years old, and none of the designs look dated. Even though it’s slightly more money that I’d normally pay for jewelry, I honestly think it’s 100% worth the money if you’re purchasing classic styles that you’ll love for years to come… especially when you can grab them on sale!

And now onto an often-overlooked but extremely important accessory: the wallet. I’ve owned my current wallet for at least five years, and it’s basically almost non-functional at this point. The zipper doesn’t work, and there’s a hole in the bottom of the compartment where I used to keep my cash. Needless to say, it was time for an upgrade. Since I love the color and feel of my Kate Spade Cameron Street Lottie Handbag so much, I knew that the Kate Spade Cameron Street Stacy Wallet would be the perfect choice for my next wallet. I love that it’s thinner than my current wallet but still has plenty of card slots that are sturdy and easily accessible. There are some gorgeous wallets on sale right now, so definitely take a peek at the Kate Spade sale!

As I mentioned earlier, my main goal for my new curated closet is to have a collection of versatile items that can all be worn together for different types of events. I love how all of these new pieces could work for date night, Easter church service, Sunday brunch, work meetings, or even for running errands. All of the Kate Spade accessories work for casual or formal events, so I just add a breezy cardigan and trade my heels for the most comfortable ballet flats in the world to create a more casual look. P.S. I definitely need to create an entire post declaring my love for Sam Edelman ballet flats because they are THAT good.

Not only do they have incredible sales like the Kate Spade and Tory Burch sales that are going on right now, but they also offer a price match guarantee. eBay will match the lowest price offered by their competitors! They also offer a money back guarantee on all of their items, so you can rest assured that you’ll get your money refunded if what you ordered doesn’t arrive or match the listed description. Plus, they now offer an authenticity guarantee for luxury handbags. If a luxury handbag that you purchase from eBay turns out to be inauthentic, eBay will give you double the purchase price back! Good customer service is my top priority when shopping online, and these guarantees make me WAY more likely to shop at eBay over another retailer.
