...for Britain, the monarchy, and British fashion. Kate Middleton, dressed in Alexander McQueen (designed by Sarah Burton) looked a perfect princess and the dress was a totally apt fusion of tradition and modernity.
At first I wasn't sure about all the hype. But I stand corrected. Having just watched the when William met Kate documentary, I'm hooked. We have British BBQs and street parties lined up for tomorrow and I'm dying to see what she wears and how they decorate the church! I know my Mum, a wedding florist (see http://www.paperwhiteflowers.co.uk/) is excited about the flowers and decorations...there's just something about weddings, I love the romance of it all!
I went to London today for an interview and stopped by H&M...where I found this dress. Perfect for my summer university ball...took it to the check out and it was £15! Couldn't believe my luck! So pleased, have got a gorgeous pair of earrings to go with, will show you soon!
Back in England somewhat jet-lagged (I learnt from a French girl in NY that it's le décalage horaire in French...) In New York we checked out Topshop (smaller than I imagined), Carrie Bradshaw's house, a gorgeous vintage shop called Pippin Vintage (which I will do a post about later), a show on Broadway...I tried Starbucks' new 'apple caramel' drink, ate New York cheesecake and we flew over Manhattan in a helicopter!
My Jovonna pleated skirt (posted about here) finally arrived today, can't wait to try it out on a sunny day!
Enfin retournée en Angleterre, mais je suis touchée par le décalage horaire...! À New York on a rendu visite à Topshop (plus petit que j'ai imaginé!), l'appart de Carrie Bradshaw, un petit magasin trop mignon 'Pippin Vintage' (bientôt un post là-dessus!), un spectacle à Broadway…J’ai essayé la nouvelle boisson ‘caramel-pomme’, j’ai gouté le cheesecake de New York et on a pris un vol en hélicoptère au dessus de Manhattan !
Enfin ! Ma jupe ‘Jovonna’ est arrivée aujourd’hui (voir ici) vivement une journée toute belle pour la porter !
