Yesterday, I received a couple of emails and tweets from the lovely Bebhinn of HellwaFashion.com and a sweet Kuwaiti blogger living in NYC congratulating me for being featured on What Kate Wore, which is a site dedicated to following Princess Kate's style statements. The site managed to identiry Kate's Whistles crochet top from one of my posts.
Honestly? At first I freaked out! I was like "S***! They probably took the photo from some random blog and now I'm taking all the credit!!". I just couldn't remember taking a photo of such top from Whistles! Plus the fact the Whistles store has shut down a year ago or so didn't help either! So I did a quick search on my blog and to my relief, I found a post that I wrote about Whistles's pre-fall collection back in 2007!!!! Pheeeew! Everyone who knows me personally know how bad (really bad!) my memory is!! So I did actually take that photo, but there is no way in hell I would remember such thing! And in a sec I was over the moon!
What Kate Wore wrote "The Duchess paired it with navy and white crocheted top from the 2007 pre-fall Whistles collection. As always, WKW Facebook Friends were invaluable in identifying things, our thanks to Robin Stevens for locating the photo of the crocheted top at a fashion blog, Confashions from Kuwait." Indeed! Thank YOU Robin!
On that subject, how modest Princess Kate is! I mean wearing something from a high street store that she has purchased back in 2007 to an official visit is just amazing. And you know what's funny? I have received several emails from random people asking me if I'm willing to sell that top! If they only knew how high the turnover is on high-street clothes in my closet!
