lt's been a pretty full on week hasn't it...what with the Easter break and also remembering our brave and inpirational soldiers on Monday as well. lt's been a wonderful time for love, family, and gratitude.
Now that it's over the Brits are adding lots of excitement with their royal wedding, and today l'm adding to the whole frenzy 'cos the wanna be fashion designer in me can't wait to see the dress, and soak up some of those feel good vibes.
l've done a quick pastel sketch of what the dress might look like. l can't see Kate wearing anything puffy or fluffy, it will probably be slim fitting with a waist. It may flare a little at the hem (so she can walk in it), and be made in a satin fabric in ivory. I think she'd love to go strapless but protocol won't allow that so it will have small sleeves, my idea would be three or four rows of pearl straps. The bodice and hemline would be adorned in seed pearls of varying shades of white, and have a long detachable train also embroidered in pearls/flowers and diamantes. Maybe just a 3/4 length veil dotted with pearls, and wearing a diamante/pearl tiara. I'd love to see her carry pale mauve and pink roses with ivory lillies in her bouquet, the bridesmaids could wear "Ashes of Roses" frocks. (which is a very pale mauve that has a hint of pinkish grey in it).
It's just not normal how much thought l've put into this, is it hehe!!........... oh yeh, ivory satin slippers with 2 inch heel, no lacing.. what if she tripped. Enuff..... l do digress...
Thought l'd add some lovely sparklies, a tiara which l bought from trash for $5.00 years ago. It belonged to the previous owners' grandmother. (Wedding)? not sure...
Diamante hair slide and large king medallion, couldn't resist it's over the top charm. l've never worn it, but now it's been useful. hehe!
l've collected the odd crown piece if l come across it. The crown to the top of the pic belongs to a spoon.

Some palace interiors for you to enjoy. This is one of the bedrooms at the Palace of Versailles. I think it was Marie's. The bed's covered in plastic to keep the dust off. Not very comfy......but practicle.
