Did you know that today, October 2, is the first ever National Consignment Day? With 2.5 billion pounds of textiles saved from landfills through resale, consignment is not only financially smart, it’s also sustainable – and as we’ve shown multiple times on the blog in the past, it’s most definitely what Kate would do (and has done!)
Today, in honour of this momentous day we thought we’d share some of our top picks, inspired by the Duchess of Cambridge, that would let you add a little dose of Kate to your wardrobe. So join in the fun and take a peek at all the amazingly good deals that are available out there from The RealReal, definitely our favourite source of all things consignment – they are so good at ensuring that everything is authenticated, in impeccable condition and they have a great selection.
Next up is a pick from Alexander McQueen, a perennial favourite designer of Kate’s. There are so many pieces to choose from, but we selected one our favourites to share. You can see all of the many available here. Our pick is this Alexander McQueen knee-length skirt which would look adorable for an upcoming holiday party, perhaps? It’s only $295 (plus an additional -20% with code REAL)
Next is a dress from perennial Kate favourite, L.K.Bennett. A stunning choice in a pale pink, perfect for Spring – maybe stock up now?
Our last pick is from another brand Kate loves, and in a brightly collared hue to stand out from the crowd. These Gianvito Rossi blue suede pumps are a stunning alternative to the sea of black, nude and greys in footwear! Added bonus? They’re only $325 with an additional 20% off available!
If you have been thinking about clearing out your closet this is also a great reminder to get consigning and turn those unworn clothes into cash! We have heard from numerous WWKD readers who let go of repliKates collecting dust in their closets this way and that frees up their wallets to…. Buy even more repliKates!
