Are You Working From Home or Playing Hooky?

Dear Kate Spade,

I’m a huge fan of your must-have purses, clothing and everything else you design. Actually, I own one of your purses (a real one, not a knock-off), but to be honest, I didn’t buy it. My sister bought it last year and decided she wanted something bigger so she gave her beautiful purse to me. I love it, so technically that makes me a loyal customer, right?

Last week while I was at Nordstrom I saw your new iPad sleeve. It’s the one that reads, “Working From Home #playhooky.” My working from home radar is always on so I wasn’t surprised I saw it, even though it was on a high shelf.

Here’s the problem… I think I’m missing something. I run two businesses from home but I haven’t figured out how to work from home, play hooky and still make money.

So, Kate, I’m writing to ask for your help. Please send me your work-from-home-play-hooky plan via e-mail.  A few friends of mine who also work from home would be grateful to learn your plan too. In fact, we’re going to start a mastermind group around your groundbreaking concept. We’re calling it the “Home Office Hooky Club.” I’m hosting the first meeting but I’m not sure what to serve. I get most of my recipes from Pinterest so I’m going to search under “hooky food.”

You are a role model for female business owners around the world and I would be honored to get your plan. Also, if it’s not too much of a bother, please let me know what I’m supposed to wear while I play hooky. If, by chance, it’s something from your line, feel free to send it. I’m concerned that during my first few months of playing hooky while working from home, I may be a little short on funds to buy new clothes.

I hope to hear from you soon. This whole working from home thing is exhausting.

P.S. It just occurred to me that maybe the hash tag is a typo and you meant Hockey. If so, please disregard my letter.


  1. I love this post! You have a great sense of humor! I run a fashion blog & store but just started a domaining/blogging site as well. I like how you combine your design knowledge and business advice in one site…fabulous! And your domain name rocks!

    All The Best,

  2. Haha, this is hysterical. Thank you! I’ve thought the exact same thing when I’ve seen this bag, but you put it together so brilliantly :-)
