Haven’t you always wanted to be queen for a day? Well here’s your chance. You, too, can wear the exact same dress that the future Queen of England has worn – REISS‘ Shola bandage dress. It’s nice to know that even Duchess Kate likes to shop on a budget; because at only £175, that’s pretty reasonable for a royal budget. But you know how we do it, we found an even better deal. Go ahead, get your scroll on…

A couple of months back we did a post on Camilla Belle’s gorgeous Max Azria Silk mini dress, but at the time we didn’t have a steal version for you lovely folks. I gushed over the color and the shape, the ruffle, the slit, and how perfect it all was for summer. One thing not so worship-worthy was and is the price. Also unfortunate is the fact that the dress is sold out. No wonder, really, considering how, well belle Miss Belle looks wearing it.

UPDATE (09/09/2009): A fabulous and affordable Max Azria alternative is brought to you by Esley. Sadly, it’s only available in red.

LuLu*s Miss Mitzy Mint Dress

Leave it to LuLu*s to feature a stellar knockoff of our Max Azria frock. They have the best mix of brightly colored, fun, summer dresses, don’t you think? Sure, their “Miss Mitzy Mint” dress is more of a turquoise than a green, but I think this bluer color is probably more universally flattering than the sea green of the original. This is the perfect dress to take you from the heat of a summer day to the very different heat of a summer night. Only $39!

So you might already be aware of my obsession with all things striped. If you are, it might not come as a surprise that I am absolutely in love with this cute red navy striped dress by LuLu*s. It reminds me of Zoe Saldana’s EXPRESS striped dress only I think this one is actually prettier. And cheaper, too! Also, how cute is the cut-out back?

I’m usually not Nicole Richie‘s biggest fan in regards to her personal style, but on this occasion she looked lovely wearing a simple LBD by Helmut Lang which she paired with a matching black clutch and lustworthy leopard booties from her line, House of Harlow 1960. A great look for Nicole, it’s so refreshing to see her in nothing too boho!
