Watch Wednesday!

For my first Wednesday of the blog I present a RepliKate Watch!  Here is the hand of the lovely Duchess of Cambridge here:

Now this watch she has had for years, it is GUCCI, and it is said that her parents gave it to her.

Now onto my budget (and personal choice that I also wear)

This watch is $5.99!  Check out the listing here

The only warning I have with buying a watch on ebay, make sure you have a battery on hand because sometimes you buy them and they are dead.

Have a great Wednesday!

Circle dangle Earrings

Keeping it simple today.

Being in school, with having my three kids, I have a very small budget when it comes to clothes and accessories.  I love thrift shops and garage sales for clothes, but when it comes to jewelry my go to place is ebay.

Catherine is a very elegant woman, and she has a great many diamonds, real diamonds.  Well with my budget, I can barely afford to look at the diamonds.  Here is a great earring that she has worn.

This would be a classic edition for any smart wardrobe, dressed up or dressed down, always elegant

Here is what I found on ebay

Here is a budget friendly version on ebay CLICK HERE FOR LISTING at $2.59 they are a steal.  I will mention that this listing is from Hong Kong, and can take up to 4 weeks to get in the US mail, I have had as little as 10 days.  The best things are always worth the wait.

Have a great Tuesday!

Going nude with Catherine

Welcome to the newest edition of my blog family!  I absolutely adore Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge.  She is very much the example of what a lady should be.  I am in the constant search for her clothes and outfits, shoes and accessories, but I don't have 225 quid to spend on a wonderful LK Bennet dress, I am on a half of a shoe string budget.  So to begin I bring you my favorite Replikate in my personal Wardrobe.
These lovely pumps by LK Bennet, named the 'Sledge' Pump, run $345 at Nordstrom
Now I have 3 children and a go to school full time, so that price is out of the question.  But I did find these at Payless.
Named Karmen these are my go to pumps.  Available in a range of colors, and come in wide width, for the bargain price of 24.99, I love these shoes
If you have a bit more capital that you can spare, check out these Bandolinos for $59.99 from Macys
Now in terms of breaking in a patent leather pump, because they can hurt badly right out of the box.  I suggest, rubbing some simple lotion onto the area that needs improved and then warming up the leather with a blow dryer.  Wear around the house with a pair of thick socks.  Take them off when they begin to hurt.  Repeat the next day.  I have had very few shoes that take more than two days.
Have a classy day!
