Meet the Sullivans: Fit for a Queen

Fit for a Queen

This is really kind of silly, but it just made my day last week so I have to share. I was flipping through an issue of Us Weekly, or it may have been People magazine, and there was an article about Kate showing off her little baby bump while visiting one of her charities. I adore the Duchess. I think she is so cute, well dressed (ahem) and poised, so of course I paused to read it. 

The article was semi-interesting, but the Duchess' dress is what really caught my attention. Can you believe I wore an almost identical dress when I was pregnant with Owen a year-and-a-half ago? How neat is that? Her dress is MaxMara (apparently from a few season ago, so that explains the similarity in style to mine, etc.) and mine was purchased on clearance for $10 (score!) at Target. If I were pregnant again right now you now I'd be bustin' that thing out in a flash.

I've always admired her wardrobe and I feel pretty awesome about having picked something almost two years ago that the princess is wearing now. You know, I was voted Best Dressed my senior year of high school and I've always wondered how / why that happened--maybe every once in a while I really hit the nail on the head.

Here is a little bit of what Mirror had to say about the princess' fashions:

"The stretchy jersey wrap dress was the perfect choice and accentuated her growing bump, while showing off her ever slender figure.

This is not the first time Kate has worn one of their designs. They received a surge in sales after she was spotted wearing one of their coats last year .

Designer label MaxMara is known for its luxurious designs and from the label's Studio Line, this dress is a few seasons old.

However, the thrifty Duchess snapped it up in the sale of designer online retailer Matches where it was reduced from £298 to £148."

Have a great weekend, friends!
