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.

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....

    The 20 best ankle boots for fall

    We’re just going to say it: Ankle boots might be are our favorite type of boots. They’re tough like classic motos when paired with skinny jeans or leather pants.

Never mind that booties take up way less room in your closet too. Wait. Do you know what that means?

    20 fashion moments every kid of the ’90s will remember rocking their world

    Even though the ’90s and early aughts seem rather far off now that those of us who grew up then have graduated to full-on careers, families, and investment bags, I’m here to let you know: get millennials started talking about the style moments and must-buys that peppered their history and you can’t shut them up. When we had the chance to play around with some of Coach’s new fall bags, it managed to bring up a group-wide memory of living for the brand’s wristlets, circa freshman year of college. From there, the memories of stuff I wanted so bad, from elementary school onward, came pouring out. I’m presenting it all here, supplemented with some contributions from the rest of the Glamour team.

    How to look good in a selfie

    We’re living in the age of the selfie. This year, the word was officially added to the dictionary (we even got variations, like “belfie”—we’ll let you Google that one); the entire Obama family got in on the act; and a major TV network added a show called Selfie to its fall lineup. Oh, and you didn’t even have to watch this year’s Oscars to know that the biggest winner of all was not a film, but in fact the selfie. So it’s about time you learn how to take a really, really good one.
