ISSA founder Daniella Helayel has collaborated with Monsoon for a collection featuring familiar styles and silhouettes. The Gisele Dress is clearly inspired by Kate's engagement dress. The $175 design is described as "Exclusively designed by Daniella Helayel for Monsoon. A timelessly chic addition to your style repertoire, the Gisele belted dress is crafted with a flattering v-shaped neckline and cross-over ties that accentuate the narrowest part of your silhouette. Full-length sleeves create an elegant finish."
The Gisele Dress also comes in pink.
Blained shared a Repli-Kate for the Naeem Khan dress Kate wore at the Taj Mahal. The $22 Blue Print in White Short Sleeve Sheath Dress from SHEIN looks almost identical to Kate's. In terms of quality Blaine shared her review "Having purchased it, I can describe the quality as pretty similar to what you would find in your average teen clothing store or department store, ie Forever 21, Old Navy, Target (sorry I don't know any UK brands to compare!). I have another dress from this store that I've had for three years, and it's held up well. The dress fits well and feels very nice to wear, and the fabric is smooth and opaque. Unfortunately, when the skirt was sewn someone wasn't careful to line the pattern of the front and back up exactly, and it took me a long time to notice so I couldn't exchange it. That might be a quibble, but it did bother me a bit. It's also limited in sizing, but not a bad buy for the price."
12 August 2016
Marina shared the Sam Edelman Audrey Sandals as a Repli-Kate for the Gianvito Rossi Criss-Cross Ankle Strap Sandals Kate wore during the royal tour. The chic sandals feature delicate crisscross straps. They retail for $100 at ShopBop.

Kate's navy military-inspired Alexander McQueen coat has long been a fan favourite. The Ted Baker Indego Double Breasted Coat is a nice alternative. It is described: "Crafted in a cashmere-wool blend, this chic double breasted design is cut with a flared skirt, complete with a high collar, fitted waist, two front pockets and a pleated back to add further movement. A truly timeless wardrobe investment, throw over everything from jeans and tees to tailored trousers and silk dresses."

Nancy shared the classic houndstooth plaid cape by J Crew. The wool, collarless piece is very versatile and retails for $350.
The Duchess Scarf in Strathearn Tartan is reduced from £95 to £49 at Clanbags while stocks last. More from the description: "The Duchess has worn the tartan in the form of a scarf with both red and yellow outfits. The tartan is referred to as being modern, but is only modern in the sense that in the 1800’s chemical dyes became available which created a fashion for these bold bright colours". You can view the scarf here.

Nordstrom stocks the garment in 'gunmeal' and as of writing it's available in sizes 14-24. The dress, almost identical to Kate's DVF Zarita Gown would carry one through endless social functions and occasions (with thanks to our friends at WWKD for the tip!).
