Mark your calendars, it's back to work for Kate! On 17th September, the Duchess of Cambridge will visit the Anna Freud Centre to see their work on children's mental health care.
Here's a little more from the press release:
'Her Royal Highness will visit the site of the Anna Freud Centre's planned Community Campus and its Family School, both located near Kings Cross. The visit reflects the Duchess's interest in child mental health issues and the importance of early intervention and working with the whole family to provide children with in-school mental health services.'
Below are my favourite repliKates of the week ...
Giulia, a frequent contributor to Kate's Closet has taken the time to submit another beautifully detailed review of two repliKate rings:
Review of the engagement ring
Here is the review about maybe the most beautiful replikate I have ever bought and the most beautiful not real ring I have ever seen.
I ordered the ring from AliExpress because both the seller and the item have hundreds of amazing reviews and lots of customers attached their pics so I could see the actual item.
The ring is just PERFECT.
It’s made from sterling silver (inside the ring there is carved “925”) and cubic zirconia stones that shine like real diamonds and sapphires.
It’s smaller than Kate’s ring but I personally think it’s a good thing because it makes the ring “more real”, it’s very rare or quite impossible that a not-royal woman can afford a real ring like Kate’s. It counts 14 diamonds exactly like the royal ring.
The size is perfect, I asked to the seller to help me and he replied me immediately. I measured the diameter of a ring that fits me (16mm) and the seller told me to order size 6.
I took pictures using an iPhone 4s and they are not modified in any way, I also took a pic of the replica ring near a real sapphire and diamonds on white gold ring to compare them, the pic doesn’t need words, sapphires look identical (in this pic the replica ring’s diamonds appear a little bit pink but it’s the effect of the reflection of my phone’s cover that is pink, they are perfectly clear, as you can see in the first pic of the collage)
Usually my orders from Aliexpress take almost one month to arrive (I live in Italy) but this ring came in 10 ten days since the seller shipped it the day after my order.
If you are looking for a replikate of the engagement ring, or just a good ring that seems real and not “too much”, I suggest you to order this one.
Review of the eternity band ring
I looked for a copy of the Annoushka ring so long and even if its design is pretty simple it was very difficult to find a great copy, especially because the real ring is so tiny and only 2mm wide. Every ring I found before this one had a similar design but was too wide or too bold (and it would have been impossible to match it with other rings).
This ring looks real, it’s sterling silver and little CZ.
Since it’s so tiny, as you can see in my picture, it goes very well with other rings and matches perfectly any style.
It comes into a pretty navy and white box so it’s perfect for a little gift.
As the engagement ring, inside it there is carved 925 and also the website guarantee it’s real sterling silver.
I absolutely love my new rings!
Each week I like to devote a little time browsing the websites of Kate's favourite brands and designers. This week the new arrivals at Reiss caught my eye. I came across these Duchess-worthy styles:
COLLAGES BY KATIE
In last week's newsletter, I introduced a new segment by one of my favourite Duchess-inspired Instagram accounts @KateMidleton. The account is run by Katie and her account is filled with fun facts and intriguing information, but what I particularly love are her collages. She creates an informative series of collages related to Catherine's sartorial choices. I have teamed up with Katie to reproduce the collages, and each week I'll be sharing one in the newsletter.
This week we take a look at Kate's cheapest dresses:
