WHAT'S NEW IN KATE'S CLOSET
Kate debuted three new pieces from her closet this week:
Below are my favourite repliKates of the week:
My dear friend Katie, from the popular Instagram page @katemidleton has kindly reviewed her recent repliKate purchase from Aliexpress:
My absolute favourite outfit from the Royal Tour of India and Bhutan earlier this year was the Naeem Khan embroidered dress the Duchess wore to the Taj Mahal. I found a copy of it on my go-to repliKate online store, Ali Express for just US$13 and it is still available!
I heard from other people's experiences of buying copies of this dress from various places that it ran quite small so I went a size up which, in hindsight, might not have been necessary as mine is a bit roomy but not overly so.
The chiffon material is lovely and it is not at all see-through. Up close the pattern is actually more of a dark purple but from a distance it looks very blue. The only problem I have with mine is that it clings in some areas around the legs but that is an easy fix with a white slip underneath.
Overall I'm very happy with the dress, especially for that price, and am impressed by the identical porcelain pattern to Kate's version.
LK Bennett restocked a couple Kate pieces this week! Back in stock is Kate's new favorite bag - the 'Nina' trench clutch.
You'll also find the 'Addison' dress back on their racks!

Each week I like to devote a little time browsing the websites of Kate's favourite brands and designers. This week, the new arrivals at LK Bennett caught my eye. I came across these Duchess-worthy styles:
