Repli-Kate

So I saw this week that Duchess Kate was spotted in a Boots wearing a 2 year old Zara cape.  After seeing the picture I was elated because I HAVE THAT CAPE! 


I decided to get it out and give a day on the town in honor of the Princess.  
I doubt Kate would wear it with angst boots such as the Report ones that I am wearing, but I feel she'd definitely wear a scarf and a head full of fresh curls.  

If the bag looks new to you, it's because it is.  I saved and saved and saved and sold to get a beige clair jumbo flap in lieu of the two older vintage beige flaps that I had (now sold to get this one).  I just really wanted the timeless color with gold hardware and the double flap option so I'm glad that I opted for the new version! I will say that the newer caviar leather isn't as good as the pre-2010 caviar ... the new leather seems so delicate and susceptible to stains and scratches.  I could beat my black jumbo around all day and you wouldn't see a scratch.  Oh well ... a black and beige jumbo is all a girl needs in life, right? 

Do you love the Kate Zara cape?  I've had this forever and didn't think twice about it until seeing Kate in it.

I don't have any Chanel bags, but I've heard so many people say the quality has decreased year by year since the 80's, however yours is a beauty so I hope you enjoy it! Cape is lovely too! x

The cape looks great! If I saw you on the street I would never know it was from 2 years ago.

I agree of new Chanel leather versus old. I just don't like the new leather. I am quite happy with my 80s/90s leather Chanel bags instead since I can knock around in them and they turn out AOK!

Your hair really looks gorgeous.

And yes, that cape is wonderful. I am all about outerwear in plaids, as it can pull all kinds of outfits together!

You are our very own Princess Megan!!! Love the ensemble you put together with the cape! Your hair is looking fab as usual, and I am LOVING the new bag! I am a huge advocate for saving and saving (and selling) to acquire your dream bags! Quality over quantity all the way!

I love it! It is very princess and lady like. You look gorgeous. I really want a beige jumbo but I have really bad luck with light colored anything haha. I agree with the quality of the caviar leather, I purchased a caviar jumbo in June and I was like "this is caviar now...ugh!"
