Here Is THE Perfect Dupe of Kate’s Shimmering Emerald Evening Midi from #RoyalVisitIreland

Top o’ the morning to you, my queens!

I’ve had a ridiculously busy week and change, which means I am QUITE behind on my coverage of Kate and Will’s tour of Ireland.

But rest assured, that does NOT mean I wasn’t following the fashion. And when I spotted Kate in this shimmering, emerald, ruffled midi-dress, courtesy of It Brit brand The Vampire’s Wife, I almost lost it, not because the dress is a stunner — though she is — but because I was well aware of a near-duplicate of the dress. 

And said dress is on sale right now — for just $66! 

BUT, as always, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s back up for a little background. 

So, as you surely know, Kate and Will are currently in the midst of a whirlwind three-day tour of Ireland. The first day included meeting Ireland’s president, Michael D. Higgins, and his wife, Sabina. (And, of course, their Bernese Mountain Dogs, Bród and Síoda. ?) They also rang Dublin’s “peace bell” and visited the city’s Garden of Remembrance.

For all of that, Kate donned a double-breasted Catherine Walker coat with a boldly printed Alessandra Rich dress, teamed with an L.K. Bennett clutch and sky-high Emmy London pumps — all, of course, in shades of Irish green. 

But for the evening reception at Guinness Storehouse’s Gravity Bar, she opted for glitz — the metallic Vampire’s Wife “Falconetti” dress, paired with a gold Wilbur and Gussie clutch (a repeat), gold statement earrings by H&M (on sale for $6 and hopefully to be re-stocked soon!), and new velvet Manolos.  

The “Falconetti” dress rings in at just under $2,100 and is already available to pre-order here

But! If you’re looking for something just like it that’s a little more wallet-friendly, I’ve got you. Behold:

This is Gal Meets Glam’s “Carrie” Dress, and just like Kate’s dress, it boasts nonstop shimmer (courtesy of allover sequins), three-quarter-length trumpet sleeves, and a hemline that’s not floor-sweeping (making it pretty versatile, IMO!).

And the best part? While the dress originally retailed for $188 — still a steal compared to Kate’s pick! — it’s currently on sale at for just $66. 

Cheers to that! Am I right?
