So you see Kate in all these fabulous items…

You buy things that look just like hers and then what?…

What do you do?…What happens once you’ve worn it the same as her?…

1. Repli-Kater’s buy anything and everything Kate wears without taking into consideration their own body type, fit or color

                   Repli-Kator’s choose gingerly, looking for the items that they know will last thru trends and will fit perfectly into their own closet and of course their body…EVEN IF THAT MEANS THE OUTFIT DOESN’T LOOK JUST LIKE KATE’S

So, How do you become a Repli-Kator? 

 

1.  NEVER PAY FULL PRICE, REFUSE TO…WAIT FOR A SALE (SIGN UP for EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS :)

2.  BUY SMART (don’t by items that you will NEVER wear)

3.  SPLURGE on at least one item in your CLOSET (whether that’s shoes, a purse, coat or jewelry) YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID :)

4.  STOCK THE CLASSICS (i.e. Peplum Blazer, Shift Dress, Nude Heels, Black Wedges)

5.  KNOW YOUR BODY TYPE!!! (this is your secret weapon to getting the best look)

6.  HAVE A TAILOR ON SPEED DIAL! If there are no tailors in your area…find a good seamstress at a Dry Cleaners OR Take a crack at sewing :)

7.  GET AN eBAY ACCOUNT (This is where 50% of my clothing comes from)

8.  GET TO KNOW YOUR THRIFT STORES & CONSIGNMENT SHOPS (this is the other 30% of my closet)

9.  HAVE A NOTEBOOK/FILE OF ALL THE LOOKS YOU WANT (So that you don’t forget)…they can of course contain items not KATE related ;) Use it for Inspiration when you are on the HUNT!

10. DON’T BE AFRAID TO EXPERIMENT (That’s half the fun!!!)

So What Are You? A Repli-Kater OR a Repli-Kator? :)

    Another fantastic post! I whole-heartedly believe in replikating for your body shape. There are many styles and colours that Kate wears that don’t suit me so instead I look for elements of her style and apply that to a silhouette that would suit me. I guess that makes me a REPLI-KATOR :)
