When Kate Middleton and Prince William announced their engagement to the whole world, my reaction was something like this: She's going to be a princess and she's NOT THAT pretty?!
Okay, don't get me wrong. I wasn't hating because I was one of the millions of girls out there wishing she were in Katie Kate's shoes.
|I'm talking about them.|
But last week, I was browsing through pictures of Kate M.'s during her visit to Canada and California with her husband and there's something in her that made me, uhm, love her a little. Okay, I confess. I love her now!
So what is it, you ask?
Her sartorial choices. Specifically, her very CLASSY/IC, VINTAGE, CHIC, TASTEFUL yet MODERN sartorial choices. I know her clothes are not jaw-dropping, like fashion-forward jaw-dropping, but her style exudes elegance, class and refinement. I've always professed that I love classic, vintage and timeless style and fashion (and that's why I don't really like following fashion trends) so when I saw what she wore during her trip to the North, it didn't matter that she wasn't Princess-Diana-pretty. I now respect this woman.
|Very chic and sophisticated. I'll look for a similar ensemble for work. :)|
|Keeping it casual and laid-back. Ooooh, very nice.|
|I love this gown that she wore to the BAFTA soiree in California. It's very simple yet elegant. And classy.|
|I love the lace details on the shoulder! I must find a similar dress!!!|
|I'm not a big fan of the maple-leaf inspired hat but I absolutely love the cream wrap-around dress. And her shell-shaped, tasseled gold clutch is just love!|
|Little Miss Sunshine! I love her yellow dress! I saw a similar one at a department store! I'll definitely get it next week! :)|
|Bloody lovely. :)|
|I've seen her wear several dove-gray dresses. It must be one of her favorite colors.|
|Oooooh, I saw a navy blue lace dress that's similar to this piece she's wearing! I'll get it next week too! Yay! (And BOO! to getting broke!)|
|This wasn't taken during their C & C trip but I just had to include this one. Too pretty for words.|
|Aaaaah. I love this green dress of hers. And on her. I must find a similar one.|
I must say I am now a Kate-konvert. She's definitely in my list of fashion/style icons/idols. I can't wait to see what she'll be wearing next in her public appearances!
