  1. Can’t wait to find out where Kate’s blouse is from. From the one pic I saw of it, it’s not her engagement blouse from Whistles.

  2. It’s her whistles blouse for sure!

  4. Courtney says:

    Btw, the wildfires did not occur last year, the town was burnt in May 2011.

    • Oh, that’s odd. I got that information from Wikipedia. Thanks for letting me know, I’ll edit it.

    • Maybe they were referencing an older fire?

      • Courtney says:

        That is very possible, as there are wildfires in that part of the province often. However, the one that did burn homes, etc. was in May 2011 :)

  5. Melissa says:

    it is so classy that they came here to this fire ravaged town on their day off (they were originally going to go to beautiful banff, ab) and then went here.
    This will boost the people’s morale. God bless them.

    here are some great photos from their visit in slave lake

  6. Jessica says:

    It’s not the Whistles engagement blouse; the ruffles are completely different. I agree with Melissa – I think that it is great that they took their day off to visit with the people of Slave Lake :)

  7. Do you know where the black sling backs with wedge heel are from please?
    I really want a pair

  8. the wedges are L.K. Bennet and the Blazer/Jacket is Smythes…not the blouse like it said in the first paragraph.

    • Oops! Will change, thanks for letting me know. That’s what happens when you’re head gets mashed from Kate overload!
