WHAT'S NEW IN KATE'S CLOSET
Kate debuted two new pieces this week:
Below are my favourite repliKates of the week ...
Dillard's has reduced the price of these popular repliKates!
Tam Tho bought this repliKate of the Ralph Lauren peplum jacket from White House Black Market and shared her thoughts on the blazer:
"I’ve been waiting for a perfect replicate jacket and when I saw this jacket from Kate’s Closet 25th April weekly newsletter I ordered it right away with my WHBM coupon. This is a great seasonless ¾ sleeves jacket to wear in spring/summer or even early fall. The princess-seamed hugs to the waist nicely (62% polyester, 32% rayon, 6% spandex). I like a bit more length in a peplum style so I ordered regular size, true to size chart. You can close with the 3 hook eye closure only."
