[RepliKate] Copy Kate’s yellow Roksanda Ilincic Rydale dress

    I originally purchased Roksanda Ilincic’s Ryedale dress in the black and green colourway during the Australian Tour. I chose this colourway because I am blonde and yellow fabric tends to make me look pasty .

    I purchased Antonio Melani’s Anita Sheath Dress after seeing it in your post. And I am glad I did. The dress is absolutely gorgeous and very well constructed. The material is plush and soft. The yellow colour is vibrant. The dress comes fully lined. Well worth the $159 price rag. A true gem.
    Thank you for the post.
