Get the Look: Kate Middleton

Jan 24, 2010

Kate Middleton has gotten elegant, British style down pat! Often seen looking feminine in floral frocks, preppy blazers and plaid skirts - Kate’s style has evolved from when she was a student with Prince William at St. Andrews from young school girl to chic and confident woman. Building up to the biggest wedding so far of the century - she’s going to become a princess in April when she marries Prince William - her life is a true life fairytale! Take a peek into her closet for some Princess-to-be style!

Floral Frocks

Kate loves her flowery dresses! She has an enviable collection that ranges from big, red flowers to little, ditsy pink ones. She knows that floral isn’t restricted to just spring or summer and pairs her dresses with tights in the winter and comfy ballet flats year round! Pair your dresses with a chunky knit cardigan in the winter and a breezy, cotton one in the spring!

Royal Plaids

One of Kate’s favorite looks is pairing a wooly plaid skirt with a cozy sweater and tights. It’s the perfect winter look if you want to dress up a bit but still want to stay warm. A wool skirt paired with a thick pair of cable knit thick tights is almost warmer than a pair of jeans or leggings! A smart looking fitted jacket and knee high boots (bonus if they’re lined with a bit of faux fur or shearling for warmth) and there’s your winter dress up problem solved!

Accessorize, accessorize!

Kate knows the power of accessorizing! It’s the easiest and cheapest way to completely change your look! A simple gray jacket looks instantly chic with a soft beret, a cool patterned scarf and some bangle bracelets. Experiment with different looks until you find one that you love!

Over the years, Kate’s been to countless royal weddings and events. She loves to dress up a simple floral dress and heels with a cool hair piece like the one we found from New Look. Simply pin to your hair and you’re suddenly ready for a fancy party!

I have a friend, she was so nice and funny when my best friend and I met her on the first day of school. As months passed she started getting annoying. The way she texts, acts, and talks is starting to get annoying. Then she is becoming such a drama queen now. What should I do?

Thank you for sharing something that has helped you cope with loss, and I'm sorry that you lost your friend and had to go through the grief and pain. I don't know what it is like, but I know there are a lot of people who do and would appreciate that you shared that way of coping. I hope that you are continuing to find more ways to deal with it, and don't forget those good memories you have with her. They'll always be yours to cherish.

Hi Wonderfulcalico, I'm sorry to hear you're in such a bad situation. It must be tough, and it must be having a profound negative impact on you and those around you. It sounds like your mom has some things she needs to work out. But know that this behaviour from your parents is not okay. You shouldn't have to be subjected to this type of environment, which is toxic for your health physically and mentally. It also sounds like it is physically dangerous and it is making you live in fear, which is not okay. It is NOT your fault. If you feel that you are being abused, please get another trusted adult involved. Don't act on things that make you feel unsafe or confront your parents directly if you know they will act in a dangerous way. Your safety is number one. Try contacting another adult such as a teacher, a nurse, a doctor, a worship leader, social worker, child protective services, or call the police. Remember that 911 is also an option in any emergency, and that includes yourself being in danger from physical abuse. You can also call Your Life, Your Voice at 1-800-448-3000 , message them online, or even text them, or contact another local help line that you know. Please take care of yourself and stay safe. I know you may not want to do any of these things, and it's okay to feel that way, but also remember how important your safety is and make that a priority.

Hmm, okay, well I'll try to give you the best advice that I can, Error. So you say you don't like your friend for a number of reasons: Liar, bad influence, uses swear words, too blunt, etc. I feel like some of these could be over-looked, such as the swearing and the 'bad influence' part. Really, all you have to do is just not copy her actions, and they won't be influential at all. If you disagree, it shouldn't be hard to just refuse to follow in her steps. However, lying isn't the best quality I would look for in a friend.  She doesn't seem like an enjoyable person to be around in general, which is why you are making this post, obviously. But I'm gonna ask you something here. Don't you think that, in a way, you're lying too? You're pretending to be her friend solely for purposes of monetary value because, I assume, your family cannot pay for or get you to gymnastic class themselves. If this is true, that's kind of bad, isn't it? It sounds like, to me, that your friendship isn't exactly a healthy relationship at all. But I'm gonna sympathize with you, since I know gymnastics must be important to you, and you wouldn't be doing this if you didn't have a good reason. So, what should you do about it? Well, personally I think there are a few things you could do. You could stop being her friend, therefore no longer having to deal with her; but in the process lose access to your gymnastics class and have to look for it in another way. On the flip side, you could continue to put up with her, which would probably not be in your best interests, but you'd still get to attend your class. Or, you could try talking to her about it. Ask her what she really thinks of your friendship, if she actually values you as her friend. Maybe you two can talk about problems that you're having with each other and work on fixing them. This option could have negative effects, since she might want to stop being your friend or things could become very awkward after that. But it's probably your best bet to be honest with her, as you'd hope she would be with you. How about if you tried being really nice to her? Kindness is contagious, and perhaps if you treat her well enough, she'll start doing the same to you. I feel like maybe if you complimented her, told her things that you really like about her, maybe even got her gifts or made her food once in a while, that she would come to appreciate you and all that you do for her. And in turn, she might start to respect you more herself, and become a good friend. That's about all I can say. If you're close enough with her mom, maybe you could even try asking her about her daughter and see if she can give you any advice. Hopefully that helped in some way, but if it didn't, maybe it at least made you think? I hope your problem gets resolved, Error, and you can be content with the outcome of it. :-)
