Kate Spade Hashtag Tote

I love Kate Spade.  Most of the time.

I used to be passionately devoted.  Does anyone remember this boxy little bag?


Loved it.  Used this bad boy to death.  Without doing a lot of research, I’d say I had this bag around 2000 or 2001.

Fast forward to today…wait for it….wait for it….

Introducing the Hashtag Tote…


Really Kate Spade?  This bag looks like a size that I could probably toss a few diapers into.  And since that’s my life, that’s pretty key.  But for $248, I’m not going to put diapers into a bag that tells everyone how hungover I am.

I blame this on Liz Claiborne acquiring Kate Spade in 2006.  I can appreciate a good statement tee, but I’m not feeling this.  What do you think Twitter happy people?  Are you digging the Hashtag Tote?

    There is nothing classy about that tote. If they were going to use a hashtag on a $248 tote, #baconeggandcheeseplease was the worst choice they could have made. I’ll #pass.

    Ew, maybe for Lindsay Lohan or Amanda Bynes.

    I picked up my little black bag knock off from a nice curbside vendor in NYC, summer 1997. I’d skip this #hashtag mess.
