We may all want to while away the hours prancing from one sample sale to the next, or loading our virtual shopping carts with an entire season’s worth of new duds. Of course, real life (and even realer bank accounts) get in the way. The Goods, our new curated daily feature, delivers one stand-out steal hand-selected for your quick and easy shopping pleasure. Today’s find: a regal Reiss dress for finding your own happily ever after.
It sure has. Kate Middleton’s pregnant, William’s bald spot thankfully hasn’t gotten that much more prominent, and Pippa and Harry still aren’t a thing. One thing that hasn’t changed: Every time Kate steps outside wearing clothes — which is to say 99 percent of the time, barring one incident — lightbulbs flash, crowds swoon, and dresses fly off the racks.
To celebrate two years of mostly safe but always elegant royal fashion, we’ve got this $245 dress by Reiss (Kate boosted the British brand’s sales by 200 percent, remember?), which combines all of her favorite design elements. Kate’s been known to love a good Peter Pan collar (see: the black Topshop shift she wore last year), and she’s also a well-documented fit-and-flare fan. The full pleated skirt would accommodate her baby bump, and she could still belt it to emphasize her waist, a trick she’s used on everything from coats to evening gowns. To complement the muted tone, she’d wear it with demure black or blush pumps. We also love the pockets. It would never happen, but we like to imagine her keeping snacks in there for her little prince or princess.
Here’s looking at you, Kate — thanks for showing us that dreams do come true.
