I have a bit of a soft spot for Kate Middleton, a.k.a The Duchess of Cambridge. (Or just “The Duchess”, as I would insist on being called if I were her. Fergie who?) It’s not that I particularly love her style, or anything – I suspect she’s very much constrained by various “rules” concerning what members of the Royal Family should and should not wear, so we probably don’t get to see much of Kate’s real style. No, my interest in her comes purely from the fact that she’s a fairly “average” young woman (if there is such a thing), who has suddenly found herself with the mother of all wardrobe dilemmas. I mean, I know how hard I found it to pack for a summer vacation during which the only people likely to be taking my photo were members of my family. What on earth must it be like to have to pack for a tour of Canada and California during which every single item you wear will be scrutinised by the world’s media?
Pretty hard, I’m guessing. Although having a large amount of money at your disposal would surely help.
What kind of shoes would you pack for such a trip, I wonder? Why, trusty old nude pumps, of course!
Kate’s shoes are by LK Bennett and are now sold out, however, the brand also makes a very similar shoe called ‘Andie‘, which comes in black, red and taupe. Perfectly classic, perfectly versatile, and perfect with the Erdem dress she wore to step off the plane.
