If you’ve not become an obsessive browser on one of our favorite websites, Etsy, then you’ve fallen behind the times my friends! Etsy is the place online to find and sell homemade and vintage items. Think of it like a big craft/garage sale where you can pretty much find everything. Not surprisingly, many of the items that people have handmade are based on pieces that their style icons have worn- and there is no shortage of Kate looks to be found for reasonable prices!
Take for example the Lapis and Crystal necklace she wore at the Engagement Announcement:
Here is the Etsy version by Tudorshoppe for $14 USD! Of course it’s slightly different and obviously not the same jewels as were included in the original, but we think that bargain-loving Kate would approve of our seeking out fashionable jewellery from small artisans.
There are brilliantly creative people who have recreated and put their own spin on many Kate fashions- it reminds us of Jackie Kennedy who told reporters that she had Oleg Cassini replicate looks for her from runway shows that she favoured. Plus, we like that it’s supporting small vendors! Here are some more looks that have been recreated, check it out if you haven’t already!
