For someone so Royal, her shoe closet is pretty bare. Kate Middleton only wears two pairs of shoes. I’m assuming she has a giant spotlight in her closet and below it sits a pair of her beloved nude L.K. Bennett pumps and her former favorite heels, those black pumps from the same designer.
This time last year, Kate only stepped out in a $300 pair of black L.K. Bennett Greta heels, which she wore so often and so proud that the brand reissued them and dubbed them “The Kate.”
After wearing out the shoes and boring us with her sartorial foot fare, she switched out the black for, wait for it, nude pumps! Gasp, something different! Oh wait, we all collectively exhaled, these shoes are still equally boring.
Now I’m actually convinced she sleeps in her nude L.K. Bennett pumps. In ascending order, here is just a sampling of all the times she’s worn these shoes in the past year.
June 4, 2011: Derby Day
June 12, 2011: Philip’s 90th Birthday
July 2, 2011: In Ottowa on her Canadian tour
July 3, 2011: In Quebec
July 7, 2011: In Calgary, Canada
July 8, 2011: Somewhere else in Canada
July 30, 2011: At Zara Phillip’s wedding
September 29, 2011: At the Royal Marsden
June 3, 2012: Just when we thought she retired them…she wears them to the Diamond Jubilee
June 5: At St. Paul’s for the Diamond Jubilee
These nude pumps barely cost $300 and can be purchased here in the states at retailers like Nordstrom.
I love me a nude pump, despite them being all-the-rage in 2011, but you can still rock the shoe as Kate does. However, why does a woman with a disposable income insist on being so thrifty with her closet?
However, it’s clear she has at least TWO pairs of the nude pump. She owns one in a glossy leather and another in a patent leather. I know, crazy right?
Some critics wish she would wear more British shoe designers to help stimulate Britain’s retail economy? What do you think? Tweet us @Modamob
