Look for Less: Kate Middleton

I know I am not the only one obsessed with Kate Middleton.

she knows it.
She's freaking gorgeous, her hair is perfect, her style is impeccable and she always looks so freaking sweet and happy and I am convinced we would be besties. I had a dream a month or so ago that we were besties - I woke up devastated, naturally.


Speaking of her style, obviously her lifestyle is crazy different than mine, and even if I wanted to dress like her all the time, I don't go to fancy events, people don't give me stuff for free, and I don't have a zillion dollars.

But, we can try can't we?

One of my favourite looks of Kate's is the gorgeous yellow dress. I am pretty sure (not really) this was made especially for her and costs like a lot of dollars. I want one.

Some of these dresses are still a little more than I like to pay, but hey- they're less than Kate's.

dress one, two, three and four
shoes one, two and three
clutch one and two

A more attainable casual look from Kate. She seems to wear a form of this outfit often, and that's because it's awesome. Can't go wrong with blue jeans & a striped top.

top one, two and three
jeans one, two and three
blazer one, two and three
pumps one, two and three
I actually bought the madden pumps (#1) off eBay and promptly re-sold them because holyhighheels. 

One more for good measure?

If Kate wasn't the gosh darndest cutest pregnant woman ever, I'll go hee.

She needs to hurry up and have another baby because.. no reason. Hopefully she doesn't steal my baby name though.. I'd be mad. No longer besties, Katie.


A couple of non maternity takes on the outfit:

dress one, two and three
blazer one, two and three
clutch one and two
pumps one, two and three
I actually have the pearce pumps (#2) in nude from Tarjay and they are supercalifragilistically comfortable. And cheap.

  2. I love her, too. She looks so effortless and put-together at all times, even before she was a duchess and had people that trailed behind her to keep her looking that good!

  3. I love this post, Kris! You crack me up!! But really, I love the looks you chose to find look-for-less pieces for. I love, love the yellow dress. Can't go wrong with stripe top+denim. And I really thought I wanted a black&white polka dot dress, but now I'm confused!! I may really want a white&black polka dot dress!!

  4. I love her style!!! She really is effortless and always looks put together!! It amazes me (even though it shouldn't ) that the clothes she wear sell out in hours - she's better than any celebrity!!

  7. Isn't it crazy how the simplest outfit cost more money than you could imagine for celebs?! Ugh! But I love the alternatives you found! The second yellow dress is my FAVE! Love the lace-like detail! (Can you tell I'm totally in the mood for spring as far as colors and dresses go? Ha!)
