Inauguration of 'Liljeborg'

Friday, January 12th

For years the Crown Princess has been patron for the Christmas Seal Homes, here, in Denmark. It was also as patron she attended the inauguration of a new Christmas Seal Home called 'Liljeborg' in Roskilde. A very poetic name that includes including the name of a flower -a lily. The Crown Princess has visited Christmas Seal Homes all over the country since she became patron. Now it was time for her to inaugurate a new one. Hopefully a place where many children in the future will learn how to enjoy life much more. During the visit she participated several activities with the children, who seemed to have much fun with the future queen. Eye to eye with the kids, the Crown Princess a couple of hours in Roskilde.

At the inauguration Mary was dressed in a chic pair of black trousers and a brand new printed blouse. I know many of you are trying to identify where her new blouse is from. Unfortunately, I have not been able to track down the designer yet. What I found is a similar model from Hugo Boss. Any other ideas? It features that very significant blue and green print. A rather low turtleneck and what looks like ruffles at back. Noticed two golden buttons on each sleeve as well. Are you the one to help me? When arriving Mary stayed warm in her wool coat from JOSEPH. She embraced the style by wearing several accessories as well. First one to mention is the black ankle boots. They have been identified by Heaven as Hugo Boss. We first saw them on November 25th, here. The diamond rings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen and the Louise Grønlykke earrings are both reused details. I would absolutely have loved to see just one splash of colour. Maybe red nails, a colourful clutch or a shiny coloured brooch. Then I would give her outfit 10 out of 10.

New year concert with the Home Guard

Tuesday, January 9th

The Crown Princess arrived in a splendid mood for a new year concert at Copenhagen City Hall on Tuesday. For ten years the Danish Home Guard has hosted this new year event. When arrived the Crown Princess was welcomed by Colonel Lennie Fredskov. She was also handed over a bouquet of flowers. Later, the flower girl told a journalist how much fun it was to meet the future queen. After a quick pose for the photographers, she entered a beautifully decorated room where the concert was about to take place. More than 500 Home Guard members also attended the concert. All of them were dressed to perfection in each their uniform. The Crown Princess herself is also member of the Danish voluntary military organisation.

I had no idea what to expect from her outfit at this event. Somehow I thought we would see trousers. I was wrong. Mary showed up wearing a beautiful, floral printed Julie Fagerholt Heartmade dress. We have seen the dress once before on September 1st, when she visited BørneTelefonen, here. So, now we have both seen it with and without a coat. At the concert she dazzled wearing her Prada coat. Mary embraced the evening look with a golden Orit Elhanati necklace, coral pendant earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry and diamond rings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. I have been a little trouble with her pumps. Took my many different angles to finally realize that they in fact are from SAND Copenhagen -and not Gianvito Rossi as I first thought. Everything is completely different when we talk about the clutch. No doubt its identity. It is Bottega Veneta. Keeping everything classy with a simple hairstyle and natural makeup, Mary stunned like a star in the night.

The second New Year reception

Thursday, January 4th

Once again Queen Margrethe and the Crown Prince couple were gathered at Christiansborg castle to celebrate the very last New Year reception. Representatives from major Danish organizations royal patrons were specially invited such as officers from the Armed Forces and the Emergency Agency of
1st, 2nd. and 3rd. rank. More than 900 guests were invited to the reception. Feel the atmosphere in the video below that also show the royal family members arriving to Christiansborg in Copenhagen. The Crown Princess has posted a few of her own photos from the reception, here. For sure I am not the only one loving these photos taken by the Crown Princess, right?

For many of you it is already old new what I am about to tell you. Nevertheless, you are going to hear it all one more time. Had a hard time finding pictures from the last reception. Did you have the same problem? I was dying to see what Mary was wearing. Now I know. She showed up wearing an all reused outfit, but in a brand new combination. One we have never seen before. Mary embraced a polished look by wearing a brown velvet jacket featuring a waist band, worn here, here & here. Never been identified. The jacket was beautifully matched with a reused skirt from Rachel Gilbert. Mary impressed the world wearing the skirt for the first time when she covered Vogue Australia in 2016, here. She had accessorized her outfit with large two-tone earrings from Jewlscph, a Orit Elhanati necklace in gold and a Cartier bracelet. Such as her old satin clutch from Bottega Veneta. Because of you I have now seen a picture of her shoes. Differently seems like they are from Gianvito Rossi, but I wonder whether they are patent or suede? Let me know what you think. That simple ponytail and natural make-up completed one good looking outfit with perfection.
