When I wrote about my new Crocs sandals a couple of months ago I got loads of replies from surprised Instagrammers, tweeters and bloggers who couldn’t believe that my sandals were made by this brand. They looked nothing like the chunky Crocband clogs that have been so popular over recent years and the funky jelly design of my sandals certainly turned a few heads. I loved my rainbow Crocs at first sight and I’ve seen lots of fashionistas sporting these pretty and comfortable sandals since – including Ree Ree Rockette looking gorgeous in the wedge version (next on my list!).

Well it turns out that we bloggers are quite the trend-setters; now even Prince George has been spotted wearing the famous brand. I like to think that the Duchess of Cambridge read my blog post and decided that if Crocs were good enough for me, they were good enough for her son too. Yes, that’s probably what happened.

I love the photos that were recently released of the young prince playing in a field during a charity polo match last month. The family look relaxed and Prince George was so cute in a blue outfit that matched Catherine perfectly. Of course as soon as the photos were published those sweet little blue Crocs started selling like crazy!
And this isn’t the first time that a piece of clothing has been in demand after the Prince wore an item – his ‘fashion icon’ status caused the Cath Kidston tank top that he wore in the official Christmas photos to sell out immediately. When the brand was finally able to restock, the lucky shoppers who managed to get one were able to sell them on Ebay for twice the price.
Well I’ve found out that the exact same nautical blue Crocs are available to buy at Jones Bootmaker. The Navy Crocband Clogs are sure to sell out in super-fast time as soon as they are in stock so any mums who’d like to buy a pair for their own little prince will have to move quickly!
Is there anything that you’ve wanted to buy but found that it had sold-out before you’d even looked it up thanks to a royal sighting or celebrity endorsement? Or have you bought something and been able to sell it for more after a later sighting in a magazine? Let me know by leaving me a comment below or tweet me @Cassiefairy.
