WHAT'S NEW IN KATE'S CLOSET
This week, Kate debuted three new pieces from her closet:
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:
I think if there's one thing that screams Duchess Kate it is her Stuart Weitzman 'Corkswoon' Wedges which she has worn countless times. This was one of the main reasons I set out to find some repliKates of them, the other being that they are such a beautiful shoe!
I found these incredibly similar wedges on AliExpress for USD $37 with free shipping and pretty much clicked 'buy now' without even thinking about it.
They offer the colours hot pink, black, brown, khaki, blue and royal blue with a large selection of sizes. The ones I bought were in the blue colour which are slightly darker than the royal blue ones and more of a similar shade to Kate's.
So after buying them on impulse (something I do a little too much), I had some doubts about whether or not they would be true to size or if I could manage to walk around in such a high wedge.
When I received them in the mail they came wrapped up carefully in a box with grip pads. Trying them on they seemed a little snug but I kept them on for a while and found that they soon seemed to mold to my feet. They are also very true to size and are very easy to walk in. I also love them because they are so versatile; I can wear them so many places and with so many outfits. I'm not used to wearing heels but have worn these around a few times now they have become quite comfortable!
Overall I am very happy with my purchase and recommend them to others looking for a replikate or just a comfy and elegant pair of wedges in general.
The Royale Burgundy Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito 105' suede pumps are back in stock at My Theresa!
You can also find them at SAKS:
The Whiteley straw beret appears to be in stock at Amazon UK!
It is also available in a range of other colours:
Each week I like to devote a little time browsing the websites of Kate's favourite brands and designers. Earlier this month, the Duchess surprised us when she attended the Head Together launch wearing a geo-printed skirt from Banana Republic. It was the first occasion we had seen Kate don a piece from from the American fashion retailer. I checked out their new arrivals to see which other styles may catch the eye of our Duchess!
