Hello, and welcome to the first of what we hope will be many posts looking at items on eBay with hypothetical ties to Kate Middleton.
We begin with the Reiss dress Miss Middleton wore in her formal engagement photo with Prince William (more here), as of this writing (4.1.11) there are multiple eBay listings offering Reiss dresses in the Nanette style. Auction titles include things like this:
- Reiss Nanette Dress NWT As Seen on Kate Middleton!!!
- REISS NANNETTE KATE MIDDLETON DRESS UK 12/ US SIZE
And several use this photo as part of the listing:
One Nanette dress (Item # 140529695238) is listed with an opening bid of $399, although the dress may be purchased immediately if one is willing to part with the $499 ‘Buy It Now’ price.
Of course the renowned Issa dress is also for sale on the giant auction site.
Future princess Kate Middleton’s Blue engagement Dress
From the listing for Item #360350801278:
“Now you too can own the dress Kate Middleton wore for her official royal engagement with Britain’s Prince William.ï»¿”
Many items are offered “in the style of” Kate Middleton. One good example of this is an auction referencing the Burberry raincoat seen on Miss Middleton in early March; say hello to “Kate Middleton Style”.
Khaki Ruffle Hem Trench Coat – Kate Middleton style!
For those seeking additional information, the item mentioned above is Item #170621186791.
One of the more ambitious allusions to Miss Middleton on eBay is the “Kate Middleton Royal Corset” auction. Below we show a photo of the item and its description.
“This Satin Corset features a vivid electric blue color, soft boning, front button and hidden zipper design and elegantly adorned rhinestones to make you feel & look like The Future Princess of Wales. Hurry and order your corset today!”
Be advised there are ‘only’ 10 of these available, don’t dawdle lest you lose your chance to own one.
We leave you with final item, the “ROYAL WEDDING Princess Bride Kate Middleton Fancy Dress” (Item #130491083655).
It makes perfect sense to me.
