I had so many fashion tidbits to talk about today that I decided to write a post detailing everything. I’m calling this a ‘royal fashion round-up’, perhaps it could become a regular series?! OK… Let’s begin!
Zimmermann Roamer Day Dress:
First, let’s talk about the big news of the day! The eagerly anticipated white broderie anglaise dress worn by Kate in Sydney during the Royal Tour earlier this year has now hit stores! The dress is now in stock (at the time of writing) on Zimmermann’s website.

In the US store (which also delivers dresses to the UK, Europe, Canada, South America, the Middle East and to the Caribbean), the dress retails at US$520 (around £306). Postage varies, but it is US$10 to America, and US$35 to Europe and the UK (which is around £20 for our British readers).
NOTE: You will likely have to pay taxes and duty once the package reaches your country. You may wish to double check these before buying, using this tool. Zimmermann say their website stock does not update in real time, so due to demand, some customers may buy the dress only to receive an out of stock email and refund later.
Reiss Sale & Delaney Jacket Reduction:
Reiss‘s sale started today. I believe their sale is bi-annual and this will be brand’s last until January. There are some amazing pieces on sale, including several gorgeous dresses:
Kate’s Delaney “Fit and Flare” coat is also reduced down to £219 from £275 (for those in the USA, it’s reduced from $520 to $414.)
Kate wore the coat in December 2013 for a visit to the Shooting Star House Hospice in Hampton Middlesex. A reminder of Kate meeting staff, families and volunteers at the hospice last winter:

L.K. Bennett Restock Lasa & Detroit Dresses:
L.K. Bennett restocked the Lasa and Detroit dresses (as worn by Kate) recently, but the former has now sold out again on both the UK and USA LK Bennett websites. A reminder of Kate wearing the Lasa dress from the tour earlier this year:

You still might be able to find the Lasa dress in local stores, as many restocked the dress in limited quantities. I’ll keep you updated over on my Facebook page if the dress reappears online.
Kate’s snorkel blue Detroit dress is still available on both the UK and the USA websites, and the purple and white colours are still in stock too. Kate first wore this dress on Valentine’s Day 2014 during a visit to Northolt High School in Ealing, where she officially opened their new “Art Room” facility. Here’s a reminder:

The white, pink and blue colours are all still available to buy in most sizes:
Also worth knowing: John Lewis stock a white and navy blue version of the dress, which L.K. Bennett designed exclusively for them. (Only UK6 size left online at the time of writing).
Mint Velvet Bibi Plimsolls:
We know that Mint Velvet intend to restock their plimsolls later this month, but still no word on the exact date, and if they’re also sending a batch out to House of Fraser (they confirmed, but then rescinded). But if you’re a size UK8 or EU41, you’re in luck. Mint Velvet have added a couple of pairs of plimsolls in this size to the website.

Jaeger Crepe Dress with Navy Trims
- Kate wore a Jaeger dress today for the Americas Cup event
According to one of our Facebook friends Chere, the website keeps restocking every couple of days with new sizes here and there, which sell out really quickly (most likely to be cancelled orders or returns.) Don’t fear if you keep missing out, Jaeger have confirmed they’ll restock the dress in Mid-July. We’ll keep you updated as soon as we hear anything.
Kate’s Outfit from the Polo
Kate’s casual outfits are always highly sought after, and her outfit from the Polo on Sunday is no exception! Most of you will already know that Kate wore her ME+EM Breton Stripe top and a pair of Sebago Bala deck shoes, both of which are still in stock on their respective websites.

I’ve had a handful of people ask me about Kate’s skinny jeans. Along with several other bloggers, I have been cross referencing photos, examining different styles and searching online for the correct pair.
