Question: I came across this dress that Kate Middleton wore during her tour in India and really like it. Any idea where I can find something similar at a reasonable price? —Brenda P.
Answer: First off I'd like to say that I am happy to be bringing the "Ask BB" column back after a long, unplanned hiatus! This weekend on a whim I did a search of "Ask BB" in my email and discovered dozens of unopened messages that had been inadvertently filtered into the wrong folder (thank you, spam filters!) - so if you have tried contacting me with a question and never got a response, I am so so sorry! My favorite part of Budget Babe has always been answering reader questions, and I just figured you guys stopped reaching out around the time I had kiddos and honestly things were (are?) too hectic to get through emails each day! I was so happy to find all your questions so I will be plowing through those in the next couple of days to get everyone's fashion requests answered. Again, my apologies for the mishap and thank you for continuing to send me your questions, it means a lot.
Moving on...Kate Middleton looked amazing in a number of boho chic dresses like the one above during her recent tour of India and Bhutan. You can get all the details of her tour wardrobe from Daily Mail. To get the look for less, I would check brands like Lucky Brand, Forever 21, H&M, Xhilaration at Target and Free People.
Here are some similar dresses I rounded up online mostly under $50:
Embroidered smock dress • $68
