We always imagined that a British princess's day goes like this: Wear a dress, come home to the palace, take the dress off, light it on fire, and then demand a fresh garment from the Royal Gownery forthwith.
But Kate Middleton has proven us wrong. She wears her stuff and then wears it again. And she still gets to be queen someday! It's like a second revolution is happening and we get to watch.
Latest example: This wine-colored coat that the good duchess wore for a visit to northeastern England. Sharp-eyed fashionistas say she first wore this coat on Christmas day. Apparently the outerwear is by an indie British designer, and the boots are Aquatalia, and we need it all.
Remember how we said yesterday that the Duchess of Cambridge makes us want to buy everything she wears? Well, recycling her coats just makes us want to buy everything she wears...twice.
