Its very rare that the focus of fashion would removie its view from Frist Lasy Michelle Obama, but when visiting London, it was the new Princess whose style was the talk of the blogosphere. In this non-violent, non-effort style war, it was indeed Princess Katherine (Dutchess of Cambridge) who shined through, as everyone wants to get their hands on her camel colored dress worn during the Obama visit. The “Shola” dress by Reiss is bandage style, sexy, trendy, AND SOLD OUT! For $340, anxious lovers of Kate Middleton style grabbed the dresses, and Reiss tweeted “To all our Shola fans!…The dress has now sold out online and in the US, with very limited stock left in UK stores” — After a system crash of the Reiss website, they are back, and now only share photos of the Dutchess wearing the dress.
I did some searching, and found a similar dress that may give you that Reiss fix you’ve been looking for. The “Orla” dress has the same color, price, and overall look of the “Shola” dress, and may be appropriate for a wider range of body types. Tell us what you think about the alternative!
