Wowza, when the Duchess of Cambridge wears it, the world goes crazy!
Yesterday, we wrote about how much we loved Kate Middleton’s $340 Reiss dress as compared to what Michelle Obama was wearing in the same photo.
Guess, Sharon was not alone in her sartorial choices, because we received the following urgent notice email from Reiss:
Due to incredible demand for the Shola dress as worn by the Duchess of Cambridge yesterday, we are experiencing huge volumes of traffic to the site, causing some instability.
I can assure you we are doing all in our powers to rectify this, and normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
In the short term, we have posted a holding page, to reduce negative experience to your valuable visitors. We will be back in touch as soon as we have further information.
Please bear with us, we appreciate your patience.
Don’t worry, if you are hogwild mad to get your hands on the “Kate” dress and cannot wait for the Reiss server to catch up to the demand, consider some of these other, equally as lovely dresses to help you look Princess Chic!
We love this AKA New York Canyon Dress as its also in a nude color and the clean, asymmetrical cut is very modern and wearable, if not a touch a Michelle Obama-ish, and more forgiving to someone who is not as thin as Kate!
