Teeny Tiny Obsession!

Call me crazy, I don't really care, but I may have a teeny tiny obsession with the Duchess of Cambridge! Oh you do too?! Fabulous! That means I'm not so nutty! Anywho, I'm always reading and searching the latest news on her and Prince William! The Daily Mail UK is a great source for all things royal! 

Kate is just a classic beauty. She has style and grace and, for crying out loud, she's a commoner who became a Princess {Cinderella story much?}. I am always obsessed with her shoes, her hats, and well really, her entire wardrobe! I think it's fantastic that she wears more "affordable" pieces of clothing AND wears them more than once! It gives us commoner's something to relate to!

I was just recently {last week} introduced to this blog What Kate Wore and holy moly it's my new favorite read! If you are looking for a pair of shoes, a certain gown she wore, or even a necklace, this site is the site for you! It breaks down her ensembles and gives you the stores and links on where you can purchase the item! Many of the pieces sell out quickly and are no longer available but it gives you an idea of the designers and stores that she enjoys! They also give you similar options of the item!

The even better part is, if you can't actually purchase the item Princess Kate has worn, you can file it away for safe keeping and look for similar styles at your convenience! For instance I don't really want to spend $350 on a pair of nude patent leather heels, however, I've been on the lookout for ones that look like Kate's! The same goes for her clothing choices as well! In a way, this website is similar to that of Fashion Bloggers, showing off what they are wearing and where it came from! It's up to you to either buy that item or find something similar!

  1. I never really paid attention to her until recently... We're both due the same week in July, so now I feel like I should pay attention to her maternity outfit choices. ;)

  7. She is gorgeous!! I love her style and it's so down to earth and shows her "commoner" side without being too "frumpy" or too "royal", does that make sense? I am glad she doesn't let the fame get to her head!! I loved Princess Diana (thanks to my mom) so not as obsessed, but very in awe of Princess Kate

  9. I love this! haha! Lauran, I know everything there is to know about this girl. I think I am psycho. (Not really) but you get the point. I visit the Daily Mail daily...no pun intended. If you have questions on similar options, the What Kate Wore Facebook page is awesome too because a lot of the "members" chime in and offer great alternatives and like the second she is pictured, they can identify every piece of clothing she is wearing. It is insane. Anyway, Happy Replikating!
