Despite reports of Kate Middleton's astronomical wardrobe budget (Forbes put it at $54,000 for the first half of 2012) the Duchess is back to her thrifty ways, sporting a $55 dress from UK high street label Hobbs at an official visit to Bacon's College in Rotherhithe, The Daily Mail is reporting.
Middleton paired her pretty frock with a pair of summery wedge espadrilles and minimal accessories. All-in-all a very 'Kate' look and, not surprisingly the 'Wessex' dress she's wearing has already sold out.
The Olympics opening ceremony is tomorrow, and to kick off what is sure to be a string of perfectly-poised sartorial appearances, Middleton, Harry and Prince William got to try out a variety of different sports at Bacon's College, including table tennis, soccer and judo. Kate's already shown us her ability to play sports and wear cute clothes (see: her playing field hockey while wearing orange skinny jeans.) It definitely got us in the sporty spirit--and made us even more excited to see what K.Midd will wear during the Olympics.
Oh, and, just for fun, here's the Duchess learning to karate chop. Who knew being a princess would be so sweaty!
