My Kate Middleton Dress

This year I've been embracing jewel tones - I've especially been loving Emerald Green and Sapphire Blue. And when it comes to Royal Blue dresses, nobody wore it better than my style crush Kate Middleton in her Issa Engagement dress.

When I heard that Henkaa had expanded their convertible dress line to include the Iris design in Royal Blue, I couldn't wait to try it on - it seemed like a great RepliKate option!


I headed to their new showroom located at 1245 Caledonia Road. The last time I visited their store was in December 2014 when I picked up my Sakura dress. They have shifted locations since my last visit - the new showroom is even more chic and spacious!


After picking out my dress, I was taught some of the 13 (!!!) ways to style the Iris - in my first pic (above) I'm wearing it with a v-neck in the Katherine Style. In the pic below I've flipped the dress around so that it has a cowl-neck - this style is called the Jennifer. Along with the Royal Blue, the Iris Midi dress comes in 5 other stunning colors.

So I couldn't call this my "Kate Middleton dress" without posting a comparison photo next to the original Issa dress...although nobody wants to put their picture side-by-side with a princess! As you can see, the Henkaa version is slightly more voluminous and flowy than the Issa dress (and I'm definitely more "voluminous" than Kate LOL!) Still - it's an amazing alternative....and guess what? If you want to own a Henkaa Iris dress - you're in luck...I'm giving one away below!!!

  24. So pretty! I think I'd like the black because a) I don't have a black dress and b) it would take the versatility of this coverable dress to the next level.
