Royal Wedding 'stuff'

I'm not going to 'go on' about the Royal Wedding and what Catherine's dress will be like.  We just have to be patient, although I think that 'Sally Traffic's' prediction of long sleeves is way off kilter! 

I'm looking forward to the event, but I find it very very sad that so many people feel obliged to 'diss' the whole thing.  We are all going through very difficult economic times and the Royal Wedding is a boost and a lift for us all.  A day in which to take some time out, courtesy of our lovely sovereign, and kick back for a few hours.  It's a bit of a fairytale, and I for one wish them much happiness.  I don't care if they are rich by an accident of birth to be honest.  Being rich does not make you happy after all.  Similarly, I would hate to be constantly in the public eye the way they are; constantly criticised for one thing or another.  After all if I want to go out in ripped jeans with unbrushed hair, that's my business, and nothing to do with the nation.  Just think, they can never do that! 

Good luck to them I say, and let all the religious nutters and fundatmentalists stay away and not spoil it for everyone.

best wishes to you all, have a great day tomorrow.

Don't forget about being yourself as well as being fashionable

Gosh I can't believe I haven't blogged since the end of March, how time flies.  I have been reading a lot about the Royal Wedding, well who hasn't?  I found a post which rightly said that Catherine Middleton should let her own personality do the 'walking' when it comes to her dress and overall outfit. 

I agree, there's a lot of talk at the moment, for example, about 'Vintage' style and fashion.  Even I am being 'dragged' into the vintage craze, and yet it's one style which I have never enjoyed; give me fresh and pretty every time.  Are we really that spoon fed by hype and media that we begin to forget who we really are? 

Remember Carrie in the first 'Sex and the City film'? when she arrived at the church wearing a sort of 'bird' confection in her hair, although she is a fashion icon to many, she actually looked ridiculous,  (by her own admission in fact in the second film).  What Carrie forgot was that fashion is all well and good, but what about how she really felt, and how she really wanted to present herself to the world. 

If your style is flambouyant and 'out there' great, run with it, but don't be coerced into a style that is not right for you, just because it is fashionable.  Stay true to yourself, you can be comfortable and wear fashion as well, they can and do mix.  Shop around for different ideas and remember this is about you, not the shop or the fashion or the fashion designer.
