Kate has been spotted shopping at one of her favorite department stores, John Lewis. The recent birthday girl was spotted Monday in Chelsea indulging in some retail therapy. Kate was wearing an as yet unseen Zara coat in delicate pink, or as E! describes it, bone.
I wonder if this is the coat that she wore to Thursford? The report at the time claimed the coat was beige, and this could be anything from pink to bone to possibly beige, in the right light. That might be stretching it, but.... It also fits the style she may have chosen for a private visit to Santa!
Kate spent more than an hour at John Lewis, and as the pictures attest, did not leave empty handed. It could have been products from the Living department, not clothes, but I wonder if she might be stocking up for a trip to the tropics? I am still very hopeful that Kate and George, a least, will travel to Mustique. Obviously, if William could slip away that would be doubly fun.
With multiple upcoming engagements, however, she may have been picking up items she needs for those events, or, as mentioned, it may bot have been clothes she was buying at all. One thing is certain, she looked lovely. This coat is perfect and right up her alley in its style.
I should have an ID quickly, but I wanted to get this up ASAP. Unlooked for Kate sightings really are the best! We have a busy close to this week, with two back-to-back engagements. See you all soon!
