a Kate Middleton in Stella McCartney & Cartier Olympics-inspired Necklace Look

Jul 27, 2012

(Yes, that is a 12 word title. SEO utilization. Don't hate ;)

With the 2012 Olympics being held in London, I have been talking Brit all week...& loving it.
So...I saw a picture of Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge wearing this lovely steel blue Stella McCartney dress and Cartier necklace to an Olympic exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery.
I knew I had to give it a go.

However, I do not have the budget for a $7800 Cartier stunner or anything Stella.
I improvised.

the outfit

Cartier/Olympics-inspired necklace ($4- made by me, DIY tutorial?)
Marshalls navy blue dress ($14.99)
Target black kitten heal (19.99- oldies)

I have a Q for you.
Do you want more Brit in your life next week?
Let me know b/c I can keep going with this.

  3. Lovely! I'm a big Kate Middleton fan and I love how you wore the look.


  4. I'm a big Catherine fan! Great necklace DIY. I'd love to see more Brit style interpretations!

  5. Saw this via IFB challenge (yours is my favorite so far btw) and loved that you did your own interpretation of that look.

  6. I'm not a huge Kate Middleton fan (I think she's taking unhealthy measures to be unhealthily skinny - it just doesn't look natural on her like it does on you). Your outfit is tres chic, though, it so beats hers!
