The royal bridesmaid debuted her purchase for the first time on Tuesday, accessorising with simple tan flats and her favourite Modalu handbag, as she shopped on London’s exclusive King’s road.

And showing she isn’t above recycling an item - just like the rest of us - Pippa worse the Hobbs dress again the very next day, for a trip to Wimbledon with boyfriend Alex Loudon.

This time, she added tan Russell & Bromley espadrille wedges, simple gold hoops and super-glam sunnies to finish of her look.

This isn’t the first time Pippa has caused an item to sell out in stores.

British handbag company Modalu renamed it’s classic Bristol bag the 'Pippa', and reissued it in a range of colours, after it sold out in hours after Miss Middleton carried it the day after the royal wedding.

So delighted were the company that the royal sister loved her classic arm candy, they revealed they sent Pippa her very own personal collection of bags. Jealous? Us?
