Just when we thought we knew the fashion habits of the Duchess of Cambridge, she threw us a curve ball on St Patrick's Day! We all expected Kate to wear something green to the traditional Irish Guards parade at Mons Barracks, however she surprised us with an all-brown outfit. Click to read more >
On Thursday, it was back to high-street fashion for the Duchess. She debuted a spotted maternity wrap dress from ASOS at a visit to the Brookhill Children's Centre in Woolwich. Click to read more >

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will undertake 3 engagements in South London.
The royal couple will visit the Stephen Lawrence Centre, Deptford, to tour the facility and meet Charitable Trust members.
This will be followed by a visit to XLP in Gipsy Hill, a charity working to create positive futures for young people from inner London boroughs to watch an Arts Showcase presentation by young performers who have been through XLP’s Arts Programme.
Finally, the Duke and Duchess will visit an XLP community bus and the XLP mobile recording studio on the Hazel Grove Estate, Sydenham.
WHAT'S NEW IN KATE'S CLOSET
This week, Kate debuted a couple new pieces from her closet:
Below are my favourite repliKate finds of the week ...
Easter is nearly here so I thought I'd put together a Duchess inspired outfit for the holiday. I think this outfit will work well for both northern and southern hemisphere climates.
This week, Margaret has kindly shared two repliKate reviews. The first is for the Ray-Ban Folding Wayfarer Sunglasses repliKates from Amazon:
I purchased a replikate of the Ray-Ban Tortoise Folding Wayfarer Sunglasses from Amazon for $10. I am very pleased with them and they have quickly become my favorite pair of sunglasses. They are comfortable and very flattering. The folding feature is also very nice. They are a good replikate, especially for the price.
Margaret has also reviewed these $2.50 repliKates for the Mirabelle Lolita earrings she bought from eBay:
I really liked the Mirabelle Lolita earrings when Kate wore them. However, I wear mostly silver tone earrings, so it didn't seem financially wise to buy the original earrings. When I saw the repliKate Ebay version on katescloset.com.au, I was very excited. For just a few dollars, I could have a similar look. I went ahead and purchased them. They arrived in about a week and I am pleased with them! They capture the essence of the original. The eBay earrings are plainer, smooth hoops. (It looks like the Mirabelle ones have a texture and a thicker ring.) All in all, I am happy with my purchase.
If you would like to submit a review of your recent repliKate purchase, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a short review about the quality and fit, the product link, and photos (optional but recommended).
This week I found several sizes of the Somerset boat print dress in stock:
One of Kate's favorite high-street labels, Hobbs is having a mid-season sale with up to 50% off a gorgeous range of apparel. Here are some highlights from the sale:
One of my top destinations for repliKate hunting is Kohls. This weekend they have an extra 20% off with code YES2SAVING.
Within 5 minutes of browsing I came across these repliKates. I know there's a lot more on the site but I'll leave it to you to explore :)
