Really Kitty? I dont know. She seems to favor a more classic pump that is simple and elegant. I would think she has the opportunity to wear Chanel but so far we havent seen her in any. Well as I said, she might surprise us.

Perhaps not for daywear, but I can see them fashioned of satin to add texture or create interest when worn with a sleek/svelte gown.

Yes Kitty, I guess I can see that. So next question. Its probably close to midnight in the U.K. from where I am. Have there been any pictures or has anyone heard anything about Catherines party?

Was it the low-key affair, as reported, or the bigger party planned by Pippa?

Here's a video that hints at what the birthday may have been like (though we all heard it before). Of course the correspondent had to go and say that the 'low key celebrations' smelled of good PR for the Royals. Now, I won't say that they don't use the press for their advantage, but I doubt that a birthday celebration is used in such a manner. William and Catherine do things their own way as much as possible, so if she wanted a quiet day spent with family and close friends, that's what she got.

Anything else anyone has about Catherines birthday? How about when she will begin her charity work?

You're welcome. I'm also glad that she had a low-key birthday. She had a year full of big events.

That's a beautiful purple sweater and I hope we get to see it on Kate. That would go well with her coloring.

I love the shade of purple, as well as the style of the sweater, but that loud border around the collar ruins it for me. However, I would love to see this on Catherine.

Flashback to the ornate sweaters of the '80s, I believe! Well, the retro look seems to be in.

Why must they call it "retail therapy"? Makes the Duchess sound like some superficial celebrity who has to shop to cope with life.

That's the latest catchphrase nowadays; whenever you need a pick-me-up or something to cheer you, shopping is the best medicine!

I agree. That phrase makes me think of those teenage girls that have wealthy parent, who go shopping because they had a bad hair day. I don't see Catherine shopping in order to de-stress.

Whoever considers shopping a good way to unwind is a bit nuts. Clothing/shoe shopping is torture.

Let me tell you; after a rough day at work or when you're stressed or just need something to cheer yourself up, just browsing the stores can be pleasurable. You don't even have to buy anything; just mindless window shopping will suffice. Of course, I wouldn't advise doing this during the holidays because that brings stress in and of itself!

Window-sopping is definitely a good choice. Thoigh most of my browsing takes place in Barnes & Noble on the Upper West Side. Will be going there when my first week of work is done.

That's the same thing I thought. She went shopping, not some darn retail therapy.

Good grief! I can see headlines now: Retail Therapy! Kate has issues with tissues
