Royal Wedding Week

This week is all about the Royal Wedding of Prince William to Catherine Middleton.  I can't wait for Friday morning when we get to see Kate's wedding dress.  I love Kate's fashion sense; she's gorgeous!  I didn't realize that she was an assistant jewelry buyer for the British retailer Jigsaw.

Kate has a very classic, British-prep style.  She is often seen in fitted blazers, riding boots, country tweed, discreet jewelry and, of course, her headpieces.  Whatever Kate wears, she always looks extremely lady-like; even if it's clothes from her reported favorite store TK Maxx which is the British version of TJ Maxx.  Being in the royal spotlight, Kate's clothes are always conservative, but figure-hugging.  Since 2006, Kate has become quite the fashion icon for not only British women, but for American women as well.  After announcing her engagement to Prince William in a blue silk ISSA dress, the dress sold out within hours and it wasn't long before all kinds of knock-offs were made and those too were sold out.

While you may envy Kate for becoming a real-life princess, now you don't have to envy her wardrobe.  Here are some of her looks at a cheaper price.
