Alexander McQueen Navy Sailor Skirt


I must admit I adore Kate Middleton/Windsor AKA The Duchess of Cambridge and when I walk into my closet I like to know I have some inspirational pieces just like Kate! But Glam Girl has a mortgage and a shopping obession therefore I just can’t throw hundreds and/or thousands of dollars on just one skirt.

Being an American girl I really love the nautical look , in fact I’m wearing a red/white&blue stripped Lands End dress as I type :)  

Kate wore an Alexander McQueen salior inspired navy pencil skirt on August 19, 2011 and it is so cute but I found one for less, even though it took me almost a year to find a great copy!

Style Icon: Catherine,Duchess of Cambridge

Style Icon

  Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge

We should all admit we set our alarms early that Friday morning last April to watch Kate Middleton walk down the aslie and marry her beau Prince William, the elder son of the beloved Diana, Princess of Wales. As an American girl with no royalty of our own (OK maybe we have the Kennedy Family but still where are all the tiaras?!) I have always loved those Royal Brits.


Now that we have a new young princess to look to for fashion concepts it has been an exciting year! While The Duchess of Cambridge is  considered the girl-next-door who shops at High Street stores like Zara & Whistles she still manages to wow us with stunning gowns by lux designers like Alexander McQueen. Everything she wears sells out before I even open up the latest article online and it looks like I am not the only person who realized this. Since that saphire blue Issa engagement dress, trendy knock-off versions of various clothes and accessories are being sold all over the world. This section of my blog will advise on similar pieces worn by Catherine  that are available since  the actual items she owns sell out in hours!…but I’m sure these items will sell out just as quickly so check back often!
