Kate Middleton turned the big 3-0 yesterday, but I’m down for celebrating everything about the royal for the rest of this week (princesses ARE entitled to longer bday celebrations, right?!). In honor of Ms. Middleton’s DOB, pick up wardrobe pieces appropriate for a tea party! Throw your tea-based bash indoors now, outside when spring comes around. The Duchess’ style may be all demure and modern, but have some fun with old-school whimsical twists on all things tea party!
Purple is the color of royalty, so dress like YOU’RE the future queen in Modcloth’s From What I Gather Dress ($74.99). This chiffon frock features femme details like fabric-covered side buttons, a ruched bodice and a waist-line bow. Its longer length is Queen-Mother-appropriate, without being overly fussy!
