Beautiful Life and Style

Shamrock Green


Yes, St. Patrick’s day is over and today is what I would call full fledged Spring!(80 degrees and sunny? yes please!) But I just HAD to post about these pictures I saw of Kate Middleton from her St. Patrick’s day social appearance:

I mean, just LOOK at that COAT!! the color! the draping! the belt! It’s so gorgeous, you don’t even need to take it off- its like a dress all on its own.

You probably don’t know this about me but I have a serious coat weakness. I’m a firm believer in “a specific coat for every occasion” and my hallway closet is certainly a testament to that! But I am always searching for the next special one and I think a flowing emerald dress coat is just the ticket!

I’ve done a little research and it turns out the designer is Emilia Wickstead, a New Zealand native, who is now designing out of her store in London. Originally only offering made-to-measure couture, she now designs an additional ready to wear line. Let’s just say it is to DIE for. All the the polish and grace of English dressing, that I love, mixed with more wearable modern silhouettes of today.  Next time I am in London, I’m saving up for a trip to her boutique!

  1. She is so flawless. Love these pics!

  2. Kate is so lovely! I love her in the St. Patrick’s Day green!

  3. Stunning green. I must admit I would not mind hijacking her entire waldrobe. She has such a classic and timeless style which I really do aspire to replicate in my own closet.

    • I agree- she really can’t do wrong! Lots of gorgeous frocks and coats and extremes of high-low dressing. I especially love how she seeks out some lesser known designers and puts them on the map! This is a girl who could literally dress in burberry and chanel all day long but she crafts each look from so many different inspirations.
