And she continues to make waves with her ability to be a fashion babe on a budget, despite the fact that she is, after all, a duchess. Photo: Kate Middleton // Paul Grover/Rex Features; Courtesy of Asos

So it comes as no surprise that Kate has made another round of public appearances in a getup that the rest of the world can actually copy — because it only costs $29.

Good for her.  The economy isn't exactly what it once was"anyplace". So I'm guessing she may be smiled upon by the royal subjects for being"just a wee bit thrifty".

I think its wonderful.  This young woman is showing people in her country that she is a reasonable individual, down to earth, with a lot of common sense.  She's not in the peer pressure mode that most people are involved with and she chooses her own style and clothes which can be beautiful and not expensive.  I hope she continues with this as it will benefit her people in her country.  Plus the men will love it.  Women do pay too much for their clothes while usually our husbands wear the same clothes year after year.  They actually wait for their clothes to wear out while women seem to buy, buy, buy.  This lady is helping women to understand that they don't  have to spend a fortune on clothes and that they can be recycled.  Her people in England should be very proud of this young lady.

How awesome. I just wish our first lady knew how to do something besides blow money by the millions. The princess is a far better example of what a real leaders wife should be and how they should act. She knows times are hard all around and rather than flaunt her wealth she acts like the rest of us. I vote we have the prince and princess in the white house instead of the Oboomers!

This is dumb. Do people really care about this?

At least she's not afraid of being a frugal shopper.

She is beautiful. She would look good in a Indian blanket.

Why I'm not quite sure if this article has made me poo my $10 pants or puke all over my $5 t-shirt.  Or, if the people commenting in love with the billion dollar princess are making me continue to do the same... hmmmm....

    What to wear on every kind of date

    It’s the best and worst time to be a single girl in the dating world. On the one hand, past generations of women didn’t have the freedom, financial independence, access to birth control (depending on your state and employer, of course), or plethora of options to meet new people—online and off—that we enjoy today. On the other hand, they also didn’t have to worry about sexting, selecting the best selfie for their profile picture, or accidentally swiping right on a coworker.

    Your guide to hair accessories

    If you’re anything like me, you probably haven’t gone anywhere near a hair accessory for years—save for the few stretched-out Goody elastics tumbling around at the bottom of your handbag, the slightly rusty bobby pins gathering dust at the back of your medicine cabinet or that scrunchie you use to pull your hair back when washing your face in the morning. For as long as I can remember, hair adornments have been slapped with somewhat of a childish reputation; when’s the last time you saw a girl over the age of 11 wearing a barrette or witnessed a woman past her teen years sporting a headband?
