Pippa brightened our day in this lovely ruffly, lacy black dress, camel coloured jacket, gold shoes and black handbag:
Jacket: Whistles, past season.
Gold shoes: The designer of Pippa’s shoes is still unknown, though one of our readers Allie thinks they could be Repetto Bb Metallic Ballet Flats:
“Pebbled leather ballerina flats in metallic bronze. Round toe with bow detail. Tonal grosgrain ribbon trim at top line. Canvas lining. Leather sole.”
They a near-identical match. However, on closer inspection, the soles of Pippa’s shoes look black and the Repetto shoes appear to have a cream sole in the picture on the website linked above.
If you’re looking for a gold shoe these French Connection shoes are similar, but these also have the wrong colour sole. However, they’re so similar that they’ll work fantastically if you’re looking to replicate Pippa’s look for yourself.
Do you like Pippa’s outfit today? How would you style it differently?
The same day Tanya, one of our readers, posted that she had found the exact pair of boots on eBay. She informed us that the boots are by ‘Kate Kuba‘ and the style is the ‘Marvin’.
I contacted Kate Kuba on Facebook, where a member of the team excitedly explained that they remember seeing Pippa shopping regularly in their Kings Road store when it was open, before the Royal Wedding. So it looks like Tanya’s ID is spot on!
I asked Kate Kuba to email me with any information regarding the boot and they confirmed it was an older design:
“The Marvin boot is from 2 seasons ago, and is a fashionable mid heel ankle boot from Kate Kuba. It is cast in rich leather (suede) and features lace up front and cone shape heel. Suede upper/Leather sole/2″ heel. Originally £129”
Where to buy:
Because the shoe is from a past season, it’s no longer for sale on the Kate Kuba website. You can, however, buy this exact boot on eBay at the moment in UK size 2.5. They’re currently listed at £25. Click here to see them on eBay.
If you’d like to buy this same boot as Pippa, but in a camel colour, they’re currently available on Amazon, on sale for £78 in a UK size six:
And here’s that picture of Pippa’s boots again, for comparison purposes (click the image to see it larger).

As I said over on our Facebook page, Pippa’s outfit today is right up my street (I really like it!). Today she paired simple monochrome pieces with an injection of bright red with her Prada bag. She finished the outfit off with gold earrings and the shoe boots she has been wearing a lot recently!
Bag: Pippa is carrying her red Prada bag, which we’ve seen previously.
Scarf: I believe Pippa is wearing an ‘Alice by Temperley’ scarf, named the ‘Panthera’, costing £54.99. Click here to view. (Thanks to Cherry for the tip!) Pippa wore this scarf again recently, again with a monocrome outfit & red accent.
Ankle boots: Kate Kuba 2010 collection.
Here’s the dress shown in Green and the scarf:
GET THE LOOK:
Total cost of Pippa’s dress & scarf: £458
Total cost of the look-a-likes: £57
I call that a fashion bargain!
You can see Pippa in smart/casual attire walking to work. She wore a black and red checked shirt, black skinny jeans and some pointy black heels (or pumps for American friends!) Pippa was also holding her Modalu handbag, which has been named after her:
Shirt: Zara (Thanks Kimberley!)
Bag: Modalu Pippa bag. As Michelle on our Facebook page points out: it is unclear whether Pippa is holding the tan or new toffee colour of the bag.
Earrings: Vinnie Day (via my friend Anna at My Small Obsessions – check out her page, she’s amazing at narrowing down Kate & Pippa’s jewellery!)
She has worn the boots several times recently, including dressing the boot up at the Temperley show for London Fashion Week and around London paired with jeans giving off a more smart/casual look.
Here’s a really close look at the boots in question:
Our friend Tanya shares that the boots are the ‘Marvin’ by Kate Kuba, click here to read the blog post about them.
Here are two really great alternatives if you’re looking for some boots like Pippa’s:
Save: If you’re on a bit of a budget (like me!) and just want something that will last until spring, go for these suede effect shoe boots from New Look (below), only £19.99 – plus if you’re a student you can currently get an extra 20% discount online!
