So this is the first time we feature Kate Middleton aka Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, here on ITC. And while I know we’re super late to catch up on the whole Royal Kate hysteria it’s kind of amazing to finally have a member of the Royal Family with such an impeccable style! I just took a look at Kate’s recent outfits and I must say I’m quite impressed; girl sure knows how to dress her tiny body. Take her outfit to meet the Obamas for example. I love that she chose to wear a £175 REISS frock. Which, of course, sold out only a few hours after pictures of Kate wearing it popped up on the internet. However, we came across a pretty nice and cheap alternative to Kate’s “Shola” dress, so let us know what you think of our look 4 less take on Kate’s look.

I am so loving Zoe Saldana‘s style. Seriously, Alexa Chung, Sienna Miller and all the likes leave me cold whereas I love keeping up with Zoe’s fashion choices both on and off the red carpet. Just take this casual ensemble for example. I’ve always been a huge fan of stripes and seeing how Zoe paired her super affordable mini dress by EXPRESS with tan accessories and cool Ray-Ban aviators just makes me fall in love with her style yet once again. She does effortless chic like no other! Check out our budget-friendly take on Zoe’s off duty look with the same dress she wore below and let us know what you think.

So I really love rose gold jewelry. And not only since it became “trendy” this time around last year but way back when I was a child and used to dig around in my Mom’s jewelry box where she used to have plenty of rings and necklaces in this beautiful gold shade. Hence every time I spot something rose gold it instantly brings back all those childhood memories and I can’t help but be totally biased.
So naturally I was super smitten with this beautifully crafted feather bracelet by LeiVanKash. The bracelet is made in bronze and plated in 22k rose gold. It curves around the wrist perfectly and and the cord is adjustable, too. Yes, I admit it costs more than what I would usually be willing to spend on jewelry, but I simply can’t help it. Also, did I mention there’s only a small quantity of these available?! Like 3 to be exact. I love that it’s not the generic, cheapy stuff you get at all those fast fashion chain stores like H&M and Forever 21. Not that I wouldn’t shop there ocassionally, but I always end up questioning myself why I keep buying that stuff when it falls apart after a couple of wears.

Oh how I loved Olivia Wilde‘s dramatic black floral lace gown by Dolce & Gabbana which she recently wore to the premiere of Cowboys & Aliens. I didn’t think I’d be able to compose a look 4 less of her look, but then I stumbled upon this gorgeous gown by MANGO and though it’d be a great alternative to Olivia’s dress. Shhh, don’t tell anyone, but I think I even prefer the MANGO dress which unfortunately seems not to be available in the US e-shop yet though I can confirm that you can buy it at the UK & European e-shops.
