Kate Visits Liverpool on Valentines Day

Kate started the day by visiting The Brink in Liverpool. The Brink, is an alcohol-free bar linked to Action On Addiction, of which she became patron of last month. Three quarters of the bar’s staff are recovering alcoholics or drug addicts. They christened a smoothie ‘The Duchess’ in her honor.

 Later in the day she made an appearance at Alder Hey children’s hospital, where she spent time with cancer patients.

Kate bundled up in a sleek brown, woollen coat (£329 reduced to £182) from high street chain Hobbs. The Hobbs ‘Unlimited Celeste’ coat sold out within hours. She customised the coat by replacing the original studded belt and cuffs with a more stylish buckle version.

Additional details about Kate’s coat from the Hobbs website http://www.hobbs.co.uk/:

‘Wrap up this autumn in this stunning double crepe wool coat. In a sumptuous seasonal chestnut-brown, this coat subtly flares from the hips. It’s given an on-trend toughened edge thanks to the leather stud fastening cuff straps and waisted belt.
Story: Celeste
Sleeve: Long Sleeve
Style Code: 3977
Colour: Chestnut
Fabric: Double Crepe
Fabric composition: 100% Wool
Care instruction:
Dry clean only’

Under the coat Kate wore a black knee-length polo neck dress with gold belt from another high street store, Oasis. Anyone hoping to buy one is likely to be disappointed – a source at the brand confirmed that the figure-hugging £60 number is ‘years old’.

The Duchess accessorized with black tights and her Jimmy Choo ‘Cosmic’ ( £435) black suede platform heels. She held a black clutch and her wore her £1,900 green amethyst earrings by Kiki McDonough and famous sapphire and diamond engagement ring.

I have managed to locate some pictures of Kate’s Oasis black, knee-length polo neck dress. Thanks to a seller on Ebay (royal-luxury).

One thought on “Kate Visits Liverpool on Valentines Day

  1. Hye,
    i don't think Catherine wore her Jimmy Choo 'Cosmic' black suede platform heels. They look like the black suede heels she wore on December 6th at Royal Albert Hall.
    Otherwise, i really like her Hobbs coat. Catherine is always so elegant ! I'm crazy about her black clutch with a bow. She wears it quite often. Do you have any information about it ?
