Wedding Fever

It’s the wedding that everyone’s been talking about non-stop for the last few weeks (I've lost count of the number of “Will and Kate” themed shows flooding every TV channel) and yesterday the whole world got to see THE dress.It was worth the wait wasn't it? I mean just wow.

Everything thing about it was “just right” – the length, the cut, the detail – the effect was of understated glamour and just general omigodsopretty-ness without it being garish or fussy.

I was sat watching the whole thing in Snoopy pyjamas (not exactly your average wedding get-up) but I got into the spirit of things later with this Union Jack inspired outfit:

Pussy-bow blouse - was my Grandma's, velvet skirt- Topshop , socks - New Look, shoes - M&S




And you can’t get more English than tea-cup earrings and a tea-kettle necklace can you?



What did you think of the Royal Wedding?

  8. First of all, I love the background of your blog with the babushka dolls-- I have a sweater that looks almost exactly like it!! I really like your shoes and the earrings! I didn't watch the Royal Wedding as I live in California and I would have had to get up at 2am but I found the dress to be a bit boring but the wedding lovely. xx G

  9. Man, I looove your skirt! It looks so great on you! Cute top from Grandma too :). Thanks for the comment, I do get a bit uninspired by all of the somewhat nul "elegance" here in Paris, but that also means it's easier for me to stand out :)

    Cheers!
