"There was a huge opportunity for Kate Spade to make this better, and now I feel insulted. You think pushing $300 and a bullshit styling appointment in my direction and hoping this will go away, and hey….I GET that. But NO. NO. That’s not enough. I do not want a gift card that will not even cover one of your questionably made handbags, from a brand that made me feel like a lesser person. They could have lied to me and told me they were going to start a diversity training program for employees. Anything to show me that they really get it. But they don’t and that it what sucks."
Awesomeness Abounds: On Kate Spade: An update
“Sorry we were racist and treated you like a second class citizen. But here’s $300!”
Nope, sorry Kate Spade. You’ve lost a lot of customers over this, and I’m one of them.

"Keep going everyone, and bless the haters as you climb over them."
Atlanta, being such a new and developing city, seems to attract those who want to really make a mark in the world while repelling those who favor latching on to something that has already been established.
Right now, anything is possible in Atlanta; it’s the city of wide-eyed dreamers. One comes to Atlanta to create. If you’re in this city to be spoon fed, then you’re probably in the wrong place.

"You don’t move to New York because you can help shape it; you go there hoping it will help shape you. In Atlanta it’s different. In Atlanta, we are creating the city in which we want to live."
- New CL Atlanta editor Debbie Michaud on her love affair with Atlanta.
Sometimes I love this city. Sometimes I hate it with my entire being (more often than not). But it’s home. And I want to see it live up to its full potential.
