From Canada to LA…Welcome to the States Kate and Will



Kate left Canada in a SUPER CHIC satin and wool, Scarlet Marianne coat-dress by Catherine Walker. Love the jacket by the way. But when she got to LA she was wearing










A wonderful lavender Peridot dress by Roksanda Illinic and LK Bennett nude heels.  











What do you think of the quick change on the plane? I think she is doing a wonderful job with her sense of fashion and style. She is going to have the whole world at the end of her finger tips!


The western side of William and Kate

Kate and William arrived in Calagary Stampede by riding in an old-fashioned stage coach. Kate wore an Alice by Temperly shirt that had really cute western details on it. She had on a oversized buckle on her belt and cowboy boots . We don’t know yet where the boots are from but I hope to find out soon. William was wearing a matching western print shirt.

This is a cute look for Kate and is a switch from her normal put together look that we see her in.

Kate’s boots are from the from Alberta Boot. The couples hats are also custom made from rabbit fur, and european hare by Smithbilt which is located in Calgary.

Thank you Michelle for emailing the info about Kate’s boots!
