Kate Middleton Wows Again with Her Down-to-Earth Thrifty Shopping
She was almost upstaged by colourful artist Grayson Perry during a visit to a London school yesterday, but this morning, all eyes were back on the Duchess of Cambridge as she met foster carers in Islington.
The 33-year-old opted for a more fashionable look than yesterday’s pared-back smock dress by maternity label Madderson, teaming her brown silk Hobbs dress, which is not part of a maternity line, with opaque black tights and court shoes.
High street brand Hobbs is one of the Duchess’ favourite labels and a frequent choice for engagements. In November, she was seen in a polka dot top by the same label during a reception she hosted at Kensington Palace.
(Thrifty choice: The Duchess of Cambridge arrived at the event in London’s Islington wearing a Hobbs dress that is currently reduced to £50) Today’s dress, the printed silk jacquard ‘Animal shirt dress’ is an especially thrifty choice for the High Street loving Duchess and currently on sale for £50, reduced from £169.
