In yesterdays post I mentioned ‘culture’ as a factor when choosing the right clothes for a visit to Japan. And it does not get better then Mary wearing her colorful Mary Katrantzou dress with flowers on?! Right! This dress just have everything it takes to be the perfect dress for this visit. Don’t you love it? I love the fact that she is using her accessories again; day after day. It makes it more exciting for us because we get to see several differnet ways how to wear the same things and her suitcase become half as big. So clever. For instance she was wearing the nude patent Christian Louboutin pumps and her BOSS Hugo Boss suede clutch again. And all of it matched really well together. On the cruise in Tokyo Bay she wore a whit coat from Prada.

Many jewelry designers are using pearls in their collections this year, I’m thrilled because I think pearls are so beautiful and elegant. Mary often uses golden jewelry with white pearls, this was also what she did to make her outfit complete. Golden Marianne Dulong earrings with white freshwater pearl and on her finger a silver ring from the same designer (I once read that the ring was from her mother-in-law, it’s not).

Mary Katrantzou Multicolor Silver Lake Printed Dress € 945
A stunning dress with short sleeves, knee-length. I think I could use hours to just stare at this dress with all the lace pattern, colors and amazing details. Made of silk.

Christian Louboutin Simple Nude Pumps $149.00
With these pumps I understand why Christian Louboutin’s shoes are so popular…! Made of patent leather. Heel: 100mm.

BOSS Hugo Boss Beige Suede Clutch Bag Soada €270

The first outfit she wore:
If someone told me I had to go to Japan for three days with ministers and a 1000 photographers from around the world, I first of all would be scare but second I would not know what to wear at all. The japanies cultur is a bit differnent then in Danmark (nothing bad about that!!). Everything is just moving so fast in these contries such as the fashion. So what do you choose to wear? Well, what Mary did was wearing a outfit very clean and with simple accessories. Then you’re never wrong.
It’s the second time we see her in the double breasted Stella McCartney jacket with the pink snake pattern. With the black pants she showed  little winter and spring colors which I like. Sometimes it’s hard to chose whether you must wear only dark or bright colors – so why not mix them. Even though she did not envent something new, it works. To match the bright jacket she carried a beige, suede BOSS Hugo Boss clutch.

I was so sure she was wearing her beige/black ballet flats from Chanel but according to Royalista they comes from Prada. We thank them! She also wore her nude Christian Louboutin Simple Pump 100mm. What made this look more feminine was the shint diamond accessories. The small earrings and the ring on her right hand.

Stella McCartney Edwige Coat $ 1,799.00 Thanks to all of you who helped me with this coat, now I finally have more pictures and information’s about it! Features long sleeves, is double breasted, a round high neck and pockets on each side.

BOSS Hugo Boss Soada A beige clutch bag, design very simple with a removable strap. Features a button as closure. Made of suede.

Prada Black Cap-Toe Ballet Flats €557
With the help from the sweet reader, Chris, you now see the right model she was wearing. A beige Prada model, features a black patent leather cap toe and a beige bow. Made of patent leather.

The second outfit she wore:

Later the same day she changed to an really beautiful and feminine outfit. With the help from Lurdes (Treasures & Tiaras) I can tell that her nude sky blue lace dress with long sleeves, is from Dolce & Gabbana. Because the lack of pictures it’s a bit difficult to tell you which jewelry she was wearing. Some kind of aquamarine earrings. Maybe these grey Gianvito Rossi pumps Suede Point-Toe Pumps. Maybe we get some more pictures tomorrow. I’m one of those girls who adore lace and pastel colors! For me this was the absolutely perfect outfit. With her she had a beige shawl and of course a grey suede clutch to match the pumps.

Dolce & Gabbana Sky blue lace dress with long sleeves
The wonderful dress is from D&G’s Autumn/Winter 2014 collection.

I look forward to see the next days and what she will be wearing. Hope you are ready as well!

The Crown Princess Mary obsession #2

It is just wonderful that so many of you want to participate in this! I am a little overwhelmed actually and honored at the same time. Sometimes I wonder if people are afraid of talking about their royal passion? For me it comes very natural. Well, now I am quite honest because before I got the job at Royalista, only a few people knew I had a blog. But all knew that I was a royalist and being proud of it. I’m so thrilled that some of you don’t care and love to be a little royal, just like the one in my next obsession-post! This time we hear from a woman who comes from Mary’s homeland, the amazing Australia. Say hallo and welcome to May! Are you as excited as I am to hear her story? Well, here it comes.

In the first place, why did you choose to follow Crown Princess Mary the feature Queen of a little country as Denmark? 
This is the first question May kindly answered with these words:“I'm Australian, so, it's the fairy tale that has captured my heart, interest and fascination. I enjoy following her fashion choices and I’m interested in how she handles her various roles as a woman, wife, mother, sister, daughter and future Queen”

For me one of the most interesting things to know more about is your Mary-addiction/hobby/obsession. So May, tell us about it. How did it all start?
“It all started with magazines and newspapers. Then the mandatory daily visits to my favourite royal websites for up to date reports on her movements etc. It has also led me to follow other royal couples around the world.” She also tells that: “I have travelled to many countries in Europe and always visit the palaces, where I can. I am interested in the history and royal stories over the past centuries. A really cool thing May has done is to visit several countries to see her fascination in real life: “Over the years, I have been fortunate to visit London during Kate and Wills's wedding, then again during the birth of Prince George. I was in Stockholm last year for the King's birthday and was at the palace during the celebrations. In Copenhagen last year, I consulted the royal calendar and went to a function that Crown Princess Mary was attending to see her 'live'!”

When she went to Copenhagen to see Mary and the way she describes her is like in a Hollywood movie: “When she stepped out of the car, it was wow! She has such star quality, beauty and charisma.”

All good stories has a beginning and I really want to know how this became an obsession to you?
The answer she gave, is something I recognize myself. Maybe we both are a little crazy or just use too much time on being a royalist…? “It has become a daily habit and I feel like I know them personally!  It is also a matter of pride that my family and friends (although they tease me about it), consider me to be the 'expert' on royal matters.” I asked her what her loved ones think of her interest in the royals and the little obsession. I love the answer she gave: “They have a wry smile but they indulge in my obsession!”

So what is the next thing you plan to do with your Mary-obsession?
“I plan to visit Copenhagen again and see more royal sites and hopefully see the Royal family in person, would love to see Christian, Isabella and the twins. They are so cute!”

I must say that May is ambitious, even though I do not know her in person, but she wants to learn Danish. One of the most difficult language to learn because as she says: “It is frustrating watching Billed Bladet’s videos but not understanding what they say and it would be good to read the books and magazines without translation packages.” May, trust me you are not the only one out there who wants to do that. I feel a little lucky I do not need to learn it!

The last thing she writes is:“Of course, I would love to have a piece of fashion item that Mary has...maybe a Prada bag!” I hope you will be the owner of such a bag!

…the end…

Are you the next owner?

About a year ago I got in contact with this amazing woman Diana and she is as crazy as I am with Crown Princess Mary’s clothes! For so long I have admired her huge collection. She owns much more then I do. Shortly after we got to know each other, she showed me pictures as all her clothes and huge archive of pictures of Mary’s fashion. Maybe you’ll not believe it but in that archive I found so many things I had never been before. 

Now Diana has decided to sell out of her wardrobe and I have made a deal with her that I’m allowed to give you the chance to buy these pieces!! Isn’t that great?! I would buy all of it, if it was in my size.

Note that the clothes of course are pre-owned but in very good condition, there is only one of each, so you have to be quick if you want some of it.

A little update because you get the chance once again because Diana has chosen to sell the rest of her clothes, shown in this post and more on Ebay. So hurry up and find the piece you can't live without. You find her under the account name heisseschnuppeline1 or follow this like, here. Give a bit and maybe it'll be yours. Wish you the best of luck and I hope you get the items you like the most! Happy buying.
