A few years ago I started following the life of the Duchess of Cambridge (a.k.a. her maiden name, Kate Middleton) more closely, and became particularly interested in her fashion. I then discovered that there exists a whole group of passionate repliKaters who search out the clothing and accessories of the Duchess, whether the originals (“real Kates”) or replicas. I’ve joined in the fun here and there (with cost-effective items – most were under $30 – which I know I’ll wear) and today I thought I’d share some of my jewelry finds with you!
(Note to would-be jewelry thieves: this stuff is costume jewelry. It’s not worth it.)
Here are the pieces on the Duchess herself:
I actually do wear many of these pieces quite regularly, and it’s nice to have things like the poppy and maple leaf brooch for special occasions. It’s also quite fun to be part of the repliKate community online – everyone is very friendly and helpful when it comes to identifying and sourcing items, both real and replica!
