The week commenced with the much anticipated America's Cup sailing event. Unfortunately, stormy weather dampened the festivities of the day and the race had to be cancelled. However, William and Kate continued with their schedule and toured the 1851 Trust headquarters, and meet staff and families. Click to read more >
WHAT'S NEW IN KATE'S CLOSET
This week the Duchess debuted two new pieces from her closet. The fleece top was obviously a gift from the 1851 Trust in support of the Ben Ainslie Racing team. Kate added a white/black striped top to her ever growing collection of Breton tops from ME+EM! I wouldn't be surprised if the Duchess owns this style in all 5 available colour-ways!
Below are my favourite repliKates of the week ...
Yesterday I came across this budget-friendly plaid scarf which reminded me of Kate's Zara cape. If you're creative, you could possibly repurpose it as a cape because it appears to be large enough. At less that $10, I think this scarf is a cost effective way to introduce Glen plaid into your Fall/Winter closet. This is also a good alternative for those of us who are petite and usually get swamped by "one-size fits-all" capes!
The popular LK Bennett 'Cayla' dress is available at Zalando, a UK based e-retailer.
This week, there was a breakthrough in the identification of the mystery navy pleated dress worn by Kate to a 1851 Trust meeting in December last year. Adriane Miller posted on the WKW Facebook page, that Kate wore Seraphine’s ‘Sophia’ dress as confirmed by Seraphine on their website:
Dillard's, one of my favourite stores for repliKate hunting, is offering a further 30- 40% off their sale stock until the end of Saturday:
