The Diamond Jubilee
by Sarah Tippett of TheFashionAche
It’s been a weekend of British celebration with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and it may be nearly over – but it doesn’t mean you have to ditch the patriotic wardrobe pieces straight away. Oh no, everyone’s wardrobe, whatever the season, deserves a little British tribute (even if it is just a pair of royal blue HRH Pretty Ballerina’s – which by the way are utterly sumptuous dar-ling!).
Pretty Ballerina HRH Pumps, £189
If you think about it, the Jubilee’s actually been the perfect opportunity to ROCK something HOT and BRITISH, AND get another sneaky off-the-cuff piece for your wardrobe (although don’t admit that’s the real reason to your boyfriend, partner and/ or Dad). Trust me – it’s not a good idea – especially if it’s one of the following from the iconic British designer, Vivienne Westwood.
Vivienne Westwood, Long Ball Tie Dress, £2320
Vivienne Westwood, Dolce Vita Bag 5020 Geranium, £430
Just think – you could work these FABULOUS pieces with a Royal Family mask – although I do suggest that perhaps the lovely Kate Middleton, Camilla or even The Queen herself might look better teamed with the Vivienne Westwood ensemble – rather than say Harry or Charles.
