What a fun turnout we had for our first ever Pretty Preppy Party right here and on 4 other fun blogs last week!

You can click here to see all the great link-ups in case you missed it, but I’ve picked a few of my faves to highlight today. (See if you can guess what they have in common!)

Love this acrylic and gold jewelry box idea from Bitz of Me. These would be so super-cute for gift ideas for bridesmaids or girlfriends! I want one for myself, too!

And speaking of gold, this Hello Sunshine mug also caught my attention. Click over and visit Emily at Two Purple Couches to see how she made this work!

And last, but not least, is this DIY Leopard Clutch from Create Bake Celebrate. She shows how easy this is to make, and I am seriously loving that fabric.

Be sure to visit these other Preppy Party bloggers to see who they chose to feature!

Did anyone guess what my 3 features have in common? If you said they remind you of Kate Spade, then we must be on the same style page. If you’ve been here long, you might have guessed I’m a huge fan of Kate. I have what some might call a tiny obsession. (Is it still classified as hoarding if you store it neatly in a really cute bag?) Anyway, I’ve been collecting Kate Spade bags for several years now and only parted with a few during that time, so it’s time I cleared out my shelves a little.

To helpwith that, I’ve decided to hold a little Kate Spade sale on my blog’s Facebook page to offer my readers a great deal on them before I sell them on eBay. Details about the sale will be coming soon, so follow my Facebook page and alert all your Kate Spade-loving friends! Hope to see you there!

And be sure to link up at our next Pretty Preppy Party on October 16th!
