Last week, the world lost one of our most beloved designers. A woman who most of us remember for designing our first grown up handbag. Kate Spade left the world through a tragic suicide.  We will miss her dearly. While most of the world is asking questions about when she became so depressed, I prefer to remember her as the bright and colorful woman we all loved and admired that left us inspired.

Rest in Peace, Kate Spade. Your color, your joy, and your spirit will be missed. 

If you or someone you know needs help, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. You can also text HOME to 741-741 for free, 24-hour support from the Crisis Text Line.
