One her recent trip to Canada, Kate Middleton, aka the Duchess of Cambridge dazzled in an Erdum midnight blue lace dress.  Of course, she looked amazing in it.  There is a reason that Kate was recently voted one of Vanity Fair’s best dressed.  Since Kate stepped out in this lovely dress  and by the way my mother had a dress like this she wore in the 1960s) I’ve seen a few doppelgangers hitting the budget racks.   H&M has just put a similar dress into stores for about $35.00 US. They also have a navy blue lacey top with buttons down the back for about $25.00. Check out the dress from H&M below.

I also saw a similar dress from Ecci in Ivory on a recent shopping excursion to TJ Maxx for about $35.00. It’s interesting that this vintage look is suddenly back in style.
