We are back with several updates and the first of our posts on Australian and New Zealand designers that could work well for Kate on the upcoming Royal Tour.

First, the results of our two most recent polls. Your top two choices for favorite daytime, or more casual dress, were very close in vote totals. With 5,652 votes, Topshop’s Polka Dots just beat out the Jenny Packham Kate wore when leaving the hospital after Prince George was born.

We are back with two topics to share, the first involving information on bargains from brands that we see Kate wearing.

At Nordstrom a number of Kate brands have significant discounts.  There are several Aquatalia styles on sale, the Opulence is 50% off ($297). There is also a boot style from LK Bennett that is only available online, the Denise (originally $545, now $327).

Some of the more popular items from our Pinterest CopyKate Clothing board are on sale, including the Via Spiga Faux Fur Belted coat. Originally selling at $400, it is now $189.99 at Macy’s. (One FYI: 2 women who bought this coat left comments on Pinterest saying they are very pleased with the purchase.)

Nordstrom has just a few Barbour pieces on sale, they are primarily men’s coats. Aaron’s of Eastham has quite a few Barbour styles discounted, as do as a number of UK retailers, although I did not notice any of the styles we’ve seen Kate wearing.

Jimmy Choo’s sale section offers an awful lot of choices. The Cosmic is discounted to $348 (that’s 50% off) in both black and gold glitter, but Kate’s black suede style remains priced at $695.
