The Duchess of Cambridge is now officially on maternity leave and we will probably not see her again until she emerges from the Lindo Wing holding baby Cambridge #2! Here is a wrap of her last week of engagements.
This week, the Duchess released a statement in support of the Time to Mind Children's Mental Health Campaign:
On Thursday, a bystander photographed the royal trio on their way to attend a memorial service at Bath Abbey. Click to read details >
On Friday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge undertook a set of engagements in South London. This was Kate's last official engagement before the arrival of the couple's second child next month. Click to read details >
Below are my favourite repliKate finds of the week ...
Kate's beloved Cartier Ballon Bleu watch comes with a hefty price tag but luckily their are several repliKates that offer the distinctive blue hands. Margaret has shared her review of a budget friendly timepiece from Peugeot.
"I received the Peugeot Silver Tone Watch for Christmas. I really like it! I think that it looks similar to Kate's much more expensive Cartier watch because it incorporates some aspects of the Cartier watch like the blue hands, the silver tone and the roman numerals. It's substantial, but not too heavy. I find it very comfortable and easy to wear. It looks more expensive than it is, which is always a plus. The watch comes in a nice red box with a foam insert. Also, it's good to know that Kohls (the retailer) has sales frequently- this watch is often 30% off the list price."
Britany wanted a non-maternity version of the ASOS dotted wrap dress and decided to purchase this Mango repliKate:
"Just wanted to let you know I just received the black polka dot replicate from mango. And it's amazing! Great quality dress. Not too long or too short (I'm only 5'3". The arms are semi sheer which makes it unique as well."
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).
A couple weeks ago I posted about the Stuart Weitzman 'Anna' wedges which has a peep-toe silhouette and smaller heel compared to the Corkswoon.
Stuart Weitzman now also has the 'Logoyork' wedge. Like the 'Anna' it has a 3.5" heel but with the same design as the Corkswoon. When you take into account the 1" platform, that's an effective heel height of only 2.5"! These are made to order via Neiman Marcus >
Neiman Marcus also has an impressive selection of the Corkswoon wedges, available in a range of colors and fabrics:
