Feminine Fashionista 


So, to begin with, I don’t know if I would call myself a “Fashionista”, but if it is defined as a ‘devoted follower of fashion’ then, yes,  I am well on my way to being one. In Melbourne, I went to the L’Oreal Fashion Week almost every September, and loved it……

The VAMFF is a world wide event that has girls from all over the globe attending. And we all know, Melbourne is THE fashion capital of Australia – hence, one reason why I miss that city so much!

This year it is in March and to book your tickets, go to their Events page where you can also see Fashion Weekend Runway showcasing their Autumn/Winter collection looking at the best designer brands and you can watch runway shows by your favourite designers and be the first to discover the trends of the season.

That is if you’re in Melbourne, of course!

Featuring some of these designs:

Anna Hoffman

Arya

Et Al

Isobel Rose

Odeya

There will be a lot of different runways, from gala to premium, and Vogue will be presenting the glamorous collections on the runway and Priceline Pharmacy is supporting the runway too. There are literally sooo many to choose from, and I am particularly interested in the Virgin Australia Grand Showcase celebrating Australia’s globally recognised designers.
Moving on, ……

Recently I bought a Zara top which is totally feminine! It’s lace sleeves leave you feeling feminine and it was such a great buy! I believe it was only about $15 on SALE, but I wanted to share it along with my favourite current dress that I have been dying to share with you for a little while now.

This is me being totally organised! I have a journal where I have learnt to start bullet pointing things to do, and every project, I write down all the things I need to do to get done, to efficiently work well on it, and have it all there in front of me, so I can take the journal to the library, coffee shop, or elsewhere and work on what I love to do!

What I find to be entirely feminine is this “Long sleeve lace dress” from YesStyle.

It is the replica of Kate Middleton’s white lace $3,450 Dolce and Gabbana dress she wore at the Ascot Races in July, 2016.



For me, this is a sensational dress I can wear to a nice occasion, or somewhere a bit more formal. I love it so much I could wear it anywhere, but it has its place to be at a event or wedding and such. I am utterly in love with this feminine dress.


So, I just got my haircut done at New Look Hair Salon, and asked for a style similar to Kate Middleton’s long bob that she had a little while ago. I was so wrapt with the outcome and results were amazing!!!!!! I literally felt like Kate Middleton after it was finished!

I felt like stepping out in style and elegance with my hair done, plus the dress and so I grabbed a coffee (of course) and chilled outside of Sambos, in Scarborough for awhile.

Issa London Black Bird Print Dress


Yes!!!!!! I bought my VERY FIRST RepliKate!

I found it on Yes Style and it was only $26.90. I love how this dress has a flowy skirt at the bottom of it and it “sort of” looks like Kates dress. I know RepliKates don’t have to look exactly the same but any replica is good to me!!!!!!

I love the long sleeves and it feels very comfortable and casual. I thought I’d share a couple of pictures I took in my bedroom. ❤️

At first I thought I didn’t like it but after being in it for about 20 minutes it just wears on you and I feel feminine with the long satiny sleeves.



Let me know what you think!!!! I would love to hear any of you gorgeous girls feedback.

With the black Wittner High Heels I feel I could step out in style!!!!! Maybe I will just go back to reading “The Red Queen” by Phillipa Greogry! Oooohhh but I DO want to go out!!!!! It comes so close to the original, below is a picture of Kate in her Issa London Blue Bird Print Dress which you can buy the Jonathan Saunders replica on Kates Closet here.

Royal Visit in India


Today The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will do a wildlife safari ride in the North East of India at the Indian National Park to see elephants, rhinoceros and other safari like creatures. They set off on in a jeep and looked relaxed as they went off to enjoy the ride!

The couple have already visited Mumbai and New Delhi as I mentioned in the previous blog, on a weeklong tour of India. They will stay in Kaziranga until Thursday, when they will make a one-day trip to Bhutan.


After that Prince William and Kate will head back to India and re visit the Taj Mahal to visit the monument of love that Princess Diana visited in 1992.

 

Here is an itinerary of what they will be doing today.

This daily itinerary would be excellent for you to peruse to see exactly what they are doing today. Kate keeps it casual with Zara jeans, and a spotted blouse while William opts for khakis.

There are numbers of articles written by ABC news, Daily Mail, to keep you up to date with the latest, but I just wanted to share what I can. I’m excited to see what they are up to and am more interested in the tour that they will do at the World Heritage Site.

Prince William has done campaigns to protect endangered animals and has done for quite a few years already. They planned this visit to Kaziranga to focus global attention on conservation.

Today they will visit an agricultural village in the park and meet villagers in a community hall for a talk about rural life in India. They will learn how the villagers lived and such.

So it would be an interesting tour! And wouldn’t we love to be there! Hehe You can visit Royal Central for more detailed information. Thanks to Getty images for the pictures.

A Duchess of Dreams


All I have been doing these past couple of days is eagerly watching Twitter updates on the Royal Tour of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visiting India and Bhutan.

I follow Kensington Palace and have started to find Royal Photographers which take photos straight away and it has been thrilling to watch for new engagements and what is going to happen next!!!! I thought it was gorgeous that Kate had to write something in Braille and she decided to type “George”! He is obviously on her mind while she is overseas…. I can’t imagine how it would feel as a parent to feel so far away from your children but they are in good hands!!!

I just love every single dress she has worn. She has kept herself elegant and stylish while keeping a cultural perspective of Indian clothes.

This dress has been found on Glamorous on Amazon. You can now buy the RepliKate!!!! Click here.

If you follow me on Instagram I have been posting like mad these couple of days!!!! Every time I see new posts on Twitter it has been like, SCREENSHOT!!!!!!

If you know me personally, I could talk about Kate Middleton all day. I did a post on her in the Coats post and Real RepliKate post. There are numerous topics on her, her look, her style, her work, her family! The list goes on…..

Have you been enjoying the latest updates on her engagements?

I have!! I have become quite a Royal Watcher since late 2013 and have been fascinated by the work they do and what they are involved in. The travelling they did to India was a celebration for the Queens 90th and Prince William said he is incredibly lucky. I must say, I recently received a letter from the Queens lady in waiting and it is such a sentimental peice of documentation that I will absolutely cherish forever! I won’t be staying in Merredin forever and have framed it and it will always be in my room wherever I decide to live!

This is a picture of a house drawn by the Duchess of Cambridge during a visit to a contact centre run by the charity Salaam Baalak, which provides emergency help and long term support to homeless children at New Delhi railway station on April 12, 2016 in New Dehli, India.

Kate is absolutely breakthakingly stunning here and I love her aura. A woman of grace and quality and value has kept the worlds eyes on her! I believe she is an epitome of a lady and I have probably said that already but I can not recapitulate it without emphasising this even more!!!  She is a woman of quality and more especially “princess” quality!

Here she did an arts class with the children in India. She is also a woman of creativity which a lady should also have. A lady should hold herself with a range of hobbies, such as either scrapbooking, quilting, sewing, if you’re not into anything creative as much try Card Making maybe! Or drawing, or oil painting. Taking something up in the Arts is a fascinating thing. There is a lot to learn!

Well, you have probably seen all the photos on my Instagram, but it was nice to add in a blog. I hope you have enjoyed my spiel on Kate!  I apologise that I have not established a more detailed blog. An itinerary was posted. And you can go here to see an article from The Guardian on what they have been doing or The Mirror for a complete Royal Tour 2016 itinerary. I do know that India has been on Kates heart as she told Prince William she wanted to go there when they first got married.

She is such a Duchess of Dreams…….

REAL REPLIKATE


This past week I have been searching for some “RepliKates”, as you know I have become a huge fan of Kate Middleton, hence my blog on Coats. Her style, her hair, her aura, she seems to have it all!!! The “Princess Personality” is what every girl desires to be. She holds herself with such grace, poise and character – I think I have said this before – but those qualities are what is definitely to be found in a Princess!!

To replicate her looks, I have found one of the best websites which is called “Kates Closet”. You can shop her style and different dresses to accessories.
