Like some of you, I have gotten caught up in the Royal Baby fever! How exciting to watch the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge bring home their first born son, His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge. Not to mention how amazing that Kate Middleton looks just a few hours after giving birth.
I thought I would take some time today to feature my favorite Kate Middleton fashion items in case anyone else has gotten carried away with her style like I have. I also have some big news to announce:
Issa, the designer that created Kate’s famous engagement dress, has announced that it is forming a partnership with Banana Republic to create a special collection made up of accessories, sweaters and dresses. This will include 40 different pieces as well as a very similar dress to this memorable Kate Middleton ensemble:
The collection will be available in stores on August 8th and I suggest you purchase your favorites early, because I predict they will sell out fast! Glamour Magazine has previewed a few of the dresses here to give you a sneak peak.
Here are the Kate Middleton items that are on the top of my wishlist:
Stuart Weitzman Minx Sandals ($199):
Kate wore these last year during their tour of the South Pacific and also to watch William play polo:
Erdem Blue Lace Dress:
Kate wore this dress when the royal couple toured Canada. I love how feminine and elegant this dress is. I found a few options that provide a similar look: Adrianna Papell Lace Dress ($158) and Diane von Furstenberg Lace Zarita Dress ($325):
LK Bennett Sledge Pump ($345):
For a while, Kate was wearing this shoe to most of her appearances, I even read somewhere that she had them re-soled a few times. They must be pretty comfortable.
Polka Dot TopShop Dress:
Kate wore this during a tour of Universal Studio’s Harry Potter World and also to a wedding. It is sold out at TopShop, but Dorothy Perkins has a similar version for $44.10. I also found this cute Anne Klein polka dot sheath ($99) that is adorable:
Cornelia James Bow Gloves (around $80 US):
Kate wore these at a number of different appearances. I would love to rock these next winter:
I have many more Kate Middleton favorites, but I will save them for another post. Stay posted to the blog and I will detail my favorite items from the new Banana Republic/Issa collaboration in August.
