Kate scooted out for some quick shopping this morning.

The Duchess actually looks a little harried as she runs errands, stopping by storied hatmakers Lock and Co.  The LK Bennett Maddox wedge shoes she is wearing will be familiar to many readers, it also looks like she is wearing the Links of London Hope Egg earrings again.

The frock looks like Issa’s oh-so-popular ‘Lucky’ dress, we thank the eagle-eyed Melissa, she initially pointed this out to us on the WKW Faceboook page.  Kate has demonstrated her fondness for the dress, she has been seen wearing it on multiple occasions in different colors, including the white version to Wimbledon in 2008.

The ‘Lucky’ was an immensely popular style, worn by a number of celebrities, to read more about that, click here for the Daily Mail’s June 2008 story on the topic.

The cotton dress is flattering on almost every figure, with its squared neck and pintucked bodice, along with the gathered waist that flows into a flared skirt.

One quick update on the Whiteley hat worn by Kate at Epsom on Saturday (as well as another fashionable chapeau worn in January). The beret worn Saturday is Whiteley style #434/318 in Cappuccino Parisisal with curled Parisisal trim. The good people at Whiteley tell WKW they believe she bought the hat at the Fenwicks on Bond Street in London.  Whiteley shared a better look at the style, done in another color.  (For those interested in purchasing the Cappuccino, they are delivering more to Fenwick this week.)

Whiteley also did the hat Kate wore to the January wedding of good friends Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and Louise Stourton, she paired it with Libelula Dulwich Coat (more on that here). The black hat is Whiteley style #526/422K, a black velour hat with quill. Our thanks to Paul at Whiteley for his generous assistance!

And of course, we’ll have a full post on what Kate wears tonight for the ARK benefit as soon as we have those photos.

  1. Is this the ‘Lucky’ dress as well? http://www.look.co.uk/node/27263

    In the news article it shows someone else wearing the sheer back version as well.

  2. The hats are divine! I really can’t choose a fave, but I think the black velour with quill would win if I had to choose. As always, I *wish* we wore these in the States. Not that I could afford them.

  3. Pippa was spotted wearing the same ‘lucky’ dress in red to support Boyfriend Alex Loudon’s Cricketing efforts.

  4. The ‘Lucky’ collection of Issa seems to be quite simple yet very stylish. No wonder Issa is Kate Middleton’s favorite stylist!
