Duchess of Cambridge Channels Princess Diana With Polka-Dot Dress to Present Newborn Son

When Prince William and Kate Middleton emerged from St. Mary’s Hospital to present their newborn son to the world, the Duchess of Cambridge seemed to be paying a small tribute to the late Princess Diana in her wardrobe choice.

Kate wore a baby blue dress with white polka dots and an empire waist by British designer Jenny Packham. The baby blue colour was a nod, no doubt, to their baby's gender. 31 years ago when Prince Charles and Princess Diana emerged from the same hospital with Prince William she wore a teal dress with white polka dots.

Dolce&Gabbana Gathered Rose Print Dress Look4Less

This Dolce&Gabbana dress is the ultimate way to make a romantic statement for any occasion. This cut and rushing of this dress enhances your natural curves to create a flattering  hourglass shape. Pair this floral dress with your favourite pair of back pumps and soft make up for a glamorous look. The Dolce&Gabbana gathered rose print dress is available from the Dolce&Gabbana website and is currently reduced from €1450 to €1015, still a pretty hefty price tag.



Luckily for you I have worked my magic again and found a much cheaper high street alternative. This dress is not an exact copy but the pattern is most definitely inspired by the Dolce&Gabbana dress. The beautiful floral pattern will also distract from any lumps and bumps. The dress below is called the Paper Dolls Floral Body-Conscious Dress and is available from Asos. It costs a fraction of the Dolce&Gabbana original at €54.

The Mulberry Willow Bag

I was so excited when Mulberry debuted their latest bag 'The Willow' on their Spring 2013 Runway, but it has only been in the last few months that the bag has become widely available. The Willow celebrates timeless leather craft with its shape, style and detailing.

The new Willow Bag exudes practicality, simplicity and elegance. These three components together make the perfect IT-bag. This bag has been worn by numerous celebrities including Kim Sears and Kate Moss. The Willow bag is available in nearly every colour you could think of from nude to hot pink.

 
The Willow Tote is a dual-function bag with a detachable envelope clutch which un-zips from the front. Why buy one bag when you can have two ?!?!?! You may feel like this bag is perfect for a reassign using fashionista, but keep in mind that it is still Mulberry and does carry a hefty price tag. The Mulberry Willow bag costs €2000 but keep in mind that the clutch alone if bought separately costs €850.

Alice and Olivia Ruba Crochet Beaded Ruffle Skirt Look4Less

It’s the epitome of femininity and what could be more fitting for Summer than a floaty ruffle skirt. The crisp white colour is so fresh and will look great with a tan. I'm just back from holidays and it seems Ireland is having a mini-heatwave and really, what is better to wear in the hot heat, than a breezy little skirt. This Alice and Olivia skirt is fab and perfect for our current weather. The Alice and Olivia Ruba Ruffle Skirt costs €375 and is available from farfetch.com.


Lets face it if I bought this skirt I would only be able to wear it for a few months of the year and for that price it just isn't worth it. But luckily I have found a Look4Less for a much more attainable price.This skirt is more of the inspired by-kind rather than a complete knockoff (missing sequins and different shape), but for the massive price difference, I think I can live with it. This skirt is from RiverIsland and is currently on sale for  the amazing price of €12. Get this skirt now before it sells out!
