Kate Spade Fashionably Late 2018 Planner Review

As my Kate Spade 2017 planner review is still one of my most popular posts, I decided that I would do a 2018 update when my new planner arrived. It may not seem like it but planners are fairly personal objects for people. For those who have jumped into the world of planners, you have different layouts, different styles, bullet journaling, notations, decorations, designers, you name it. Now that Kate Spade is widely producing and selling their planners, it has become one of the most popular brands! Every year they are slightly different and the 2018 models are fantastic…

I bought my Kate Spade Fashionably Late Planner from Chapters! This design is available from Chapters in Canada, and Lifeguard Press internationally. (Ironically, it isn’t listed on the Kate Spade site itself.) Originally it was $34 CAD (roughly $38.50 with taxes), and between a sale at Chapters and redeeming my Plum Points, I was able to get this for $10.75 CAD with taxes and shipping included!! This is probably the biggest shopping accomplishment that I’ve had in a while, given that it’s a brand new planner that isn’t in the middle of its span.

Kate Spade 2018 Fashionably Late Planner cover

This planner is 7 3/4 x 6 inches- enough room to keep a good amount of information and plans, without requiring you to lug around a heavy, large planner. It’s a coral/red with “She’s always running fashionably late” in gold scripts, and it’s fun but simple! It also has the standard elastic band from the back to keep it closed when not in use.

Kate Spade 2018 Fashionably Late Planner pocket

It has the usual two-sided pocket for storage, it’s perfect for cards and receipts if you have the need. There is also an address section, a list of 2018 US holidays, and a notes section. I seem to always “save” the notes section for something more important but I think that this year is the year that I finally use it!

Kate Spade 2018 Fashionably Late Planner weekly view

The monthly cover page with a call to action, the monthly calendar view, and the weekly view are the same as previous years. Everything is clean and elegant! Some people like to have more space per day, especially on the weekends, but it’s quite enough for me when my daily to-do tasks go in a bullet journal.

Kate Spade 2018 Fashionably Late Planner stickers

The newest addition this year is the stickers! They are gold foil stickers and there is a variety- birthdays, weddings, cocktails, play hooky, several fun images, among others. While I’m not a huge sticker person, I am excited to sprinkle these throughout my planner, jazz it up a little bit! (I’m going to have to source some gold foil holiday related stickers, I’ll certainly need them then *says the holiday obsessed one*.)

If you use a planner, which planner do you use? 

Until tomorrow,
The Historian!

    I’m still using my good old filofax.
    This one here is fab! I want!

      I have tried a planner that you have inserts for but I found that I was bored after a while! The new design each year is perfect for me 😊

    This looks lovely! I wonder if I can buy them in the UK. I’ll try Lifeguard Press.

    I use a huge 8×11 planner. But I track my personal projects as well as my son’s home school requirements and our family’s commitments. LOL. I need the space.

      This is my long term, big event planner! I also use a bullet journal for day to day tasks, and have a separate planner for my Alpha Gam advising and for the blog. (I might have too many planners…)

      I had to stop myself from buying another 😶😶😶 I started reviewing them because I bought quite a few planners that didn’t suit me at all because there was no info 😥 I just hope it’s helpful!!

    I love the Kate Spade Planners, but I love my Happy Planner and Filofax too much to make the switch. This cover is gorgeous!!


    • anhistorianabouttown August 16, 2017 / 8:42 pm

      I knew I had to have it the first time that I saw it!! I keep toying with switching to a permanent planner, but I love having something new each year! Which planner of yours do you prefer?

        I love them both for different reasons. I love the leather of the filofax and how compact it is, but it is too small to fit everything so the Happy Planner works for all my plans.

    Oh how I hesitate to reveal that I get my planners at the dollar store. I get a weekly planner for work, which has lots of room to record daily tasks, and a smaller version for home to keep track of appointments, birthdays, deadlines, and notes. I used to indulge in a fancier type, but found that some of the sections went to waste.

      I am a firm believer in people finding what works for them, whether it be $1 or a $100! My Kate Spade planner is what I use at home, but my bullet journal is what I carry with me all the time- it’s light and focuses only on weekly spreads that I can change each week to fit whatever I need. Your planner should always fit YOU ☺
