Kate Middleton has certainly put the words “fabulous royal” back in the dictionary. The Princess simply has that flair about her that makes “style stalking” her quite worthwhile.
She and the Prince have been busy with their tour of late, and we can’t help but be glad because with it comes snippets of her fabulous wardrobe.

During their visit to Canada, the Duchess of Cambridge wowed everyone at the Canadian Museum. She arrived in a lovely white wrap dress with red accessories to match – a red hat, red pumps, and a beautiful fan-shaped red-accented clutch.

Allow us to zoom in on that clutch for you. You are correct if you think it looks like it’s made of straw.
That’s the Anya Hindmarch Straw Fan Clutch. It has a tri-color combination of red, cream, and natural, and as you can see, it also features a tassel detail on the side that is made of wooden bugle beads:

What do you think? Like it? If you want it, you’ll need to search high and low because the moment Kate stepped out with it, it sold out everywhere.
We tried looking for a similar and more affordable piece online, but unfortunately, we could not find one. However, we did find this wonderfully beaded clutch from Santi. It also comes in three colors, but the stripes have a richer and brighter appeal.
