No one travels as glamorously as the Kate Spade New York girl, and the brand is out to prove it with a new hardcover book, Kate Spade New York: Places To Go, People to See. In stores and available online on October 14, the book is a compilation of stunning photographs from destinations like Paris, Tokyo, Marrakech, NYC, and the Amalfi Coast. This being Kate Spade, it's also peppered with fanciful words of wisdom, like "she sometimes decides weekends start on Thursdays." Yes, please.
