I may be almost 35 years old (yikes!), but that doesn't mean I still don't like to play dress-up once in a while. And if someone ever invites me to a fancy event where I have to look all prim & proper and sophisticated, you can bet that I'm going to look for something very Kate Middleton-esque to wear.
And now that one of the Duchess's favorite designers, L.K. Bennett, has opened a flagship boutique in New York City? Holy shopping spree temptation alert. With this new store, I'm only a train ride (and a wallet that isn't remotely padded enough) away from making my closet somewhat resemble Kate's. (Please don't share this news with my husband.)
The boutique is located in Columbus Circle, and features handbags, accessories, and women's dresses and separates. And while the clothes in the store are definitely Kate-worthy, the line of shoes by L.K. Bennett will probably catch your eye first as being something you remember her wearing on more than one occasion.
You know those adorable nude pumps she's always spotted in? Yep -- those are L.K. And so are the black wedges she wore before she and Prince William jetted off on their honeymoon. How cute were those? I so wanted a pair -- and now I may actually have to break down and buy them if the store has them in my size. If I don't pick them up, won't that be some sort of huge fashion faux pas?
Yeah -- I'm thinking a little shopping excursion to the Big Apple is definitely in order. (My poor credit cards.)
Take another look at Kate's adorable L.K. Bennett wedges in the video clip below and tell me you don't want a pair too!
