In last week's newsletter, I firmly predicted that the new royal baby would be here by the end of this week. It's a good thing I'm not a betting woman because I would be broke by now! So rather than filling this News section with details about the new Prince or Princess, I'll have to settle for some bits and bobs about a couple "Kate sightings" throughout the week.
The New York paper, Daily News reported that Kate spent last weekend in Bucklebury, and was photographed with Prince George at Bucklebury Farm Park, near the Middleton home of Carole and Micheal. Kate was dressed casually in a plain navy sweater, skinny jeans, olive jacket and Mint Velvet plimsolls.
People Magazine then reported that on Monday afternoon Kate was back in London and spotted shopping at her local Zara Home store. There are no photos to back up the story but sources claim she was wearing a blue and white top (sounds like it could be her Ralph Lauren 'Tori' top or ME+EM breton top), jeans and high-heeled wedges (perhaps her 'Corkswoon' or 'Imperia' wedges).
Below are my favourite repliKates of the week ...
This week I received a handcrafted repliKate of the Asprey 167 Button necklace from Racholly Jewelery. The Asprey pendant has been seen on Kate more than any other necklace and is a signature piece of hers. However, with a price tag of US$4000 I could only dream about having it in my jewellery box!
The Racholly Asprey repliKate has a fantastic sparkle and the pendant has a nice weight to it. It is the same size as the original and made of Swarovski crystals featuring a centre crystal is amethyst purple, all set in sterling silver. All of Racholly's pieces are handcrafted using quality materials and it's obvious they took special care in the design of the Asprey inspired necklace to make a quality but affordable pendant.
Racholly has been kind enough to offer Kate's Closet readers 10% off their entire collection of Kate inspired jewellery using coupon code kc530. Or if you follow Racholly Jewelery via Facebook or Twitter then you will receive a coupon code that is valid storewide.

It's always a thrill to get news about an ID, especially for an item that has been a UFO for so long! This week, Brittany of the Facebook page Repli-Kate It found a bright pink Jaime Mascaro suede clutch similar to Kate's black suede ribbon clutch. Brittany changed the hue to visibly show the comparison with Kate's bag.
Although the company has neither confirmed nor denied ownership of the clutch, the similarities are undeniably close and I think we can be confident with this ID.
