Kate-Spade-London-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell For those who have followed my blog for a while, no doubt will know that I am a huge fan of Kate Spade NY.

This post is all about my Limited edition red Spring forward watering can clutch..

Can you spot it on that beautifully styled desk at London’s Kate Spade shop?

The-Covent-Garden-Academy-of-flowers-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell The wonderful people at The Academy of flowers in Covent garden made me this sweet little posy of flowers for the photo shoot.

I absolutely adore it as it screams fun and happiness. Spring is definitely here.

It was made to celebrate Chelsea in Bloom , an annual floral art show, in association with the Royal Horticultural Society.

This year is the show’s 10th anniversary and between the 18th and 23rd May, the streets of Chelsea will be transformed with amazing floral displays.

Kate-Spade-Spring-Forward-watering-can-clutch-photograhed-by-Little-Big-Bell There is also an annual competition for the best floral shop fronts.

Last year, Kate Spade was the Gold winner of this prestigious award.

In addition to a panel award, there is also a People’s champion award. You can vote between the 19th to 21st May here.

Now, for the rest of the photo shoot reveal. A little explanation first:

Every time I go into a Kate Spade store, I notice how beautifully put together the shop associates are in their Kate Spade favourites.

They are also always on hand to give great styling tips.

Today, two of them kindly agreed to do a photo shoot with me during their breaks.

I left them to style their own this season’s look. All will feature my Kate Spade red watering can clutch.

The shoot took place around the bustling vicinity of Covent garden in London. We found lots of Donald Robertson murals to pose against.

Kate-Spade-Flamingo-sheath-dress-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell Here is Agnes Bandere. Agnes chose the Flamingo sheath dress with a collection of Kate Spade accessories. I love how she has layered her necklaces.

Kate-Spade-UK-Spring-Forward-watering-can-clutch-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell This is what Agnes said about her dress ” I love flamingos and I love how the shape of this dress shows off my figure. I love layering my jewellery like Coco Chanel. Kate Spade is my favourite for accessories and that’s why I work here.”

She is wearing this season’s leopard dot layered tank and pleated crepe skirt.

What’s great about these pieces is that I can also wear them in the Winter too by adding a piece of knitwear. And of course the flamingo ring is my ‘favourite party ring’.
