Royal Tour Fashion: Day 9

Kate arrived in California wearing a grey Roksanda Ilincic dress which beautifully complimented the red, white and blue posey handed to her by the Governor's wife when they arrived.

For a reception at the home of the Consul General she changed into easily my favourite outfit of the tour so far - a gorgeous lawn Maja dress by Diane von Furstenberg.  Loved it so much, if it had still been available in my goal (dream?) size I would have bought it tonight here.

100% silk woven with flat gold-brushed buttons down the back.

Was momentarily tempted to buy it in an even smaller (but available) size (forget dream size we're talking fantasy size) but was fortunately jolted back into reality by the sane thought that it was perhaps a little too much money to put down for a dress I may never (nor should I!) fit into.

  2. The Duchess has a gift for finding simple dresses with really interesting little details. I think she's a good influence for the world of fashionistas these days! Now I have to go look at that dress link myself ...

  3. I am starting up a internet website directory and was wondering if I can submit your blog?
    I'm hoping to mature my directory gradually by hand so that it retains high quality. I'll make sure and put
    your blog in the proper category and I'll also use, "Blogger: First House on the Right" as your anchor text. Please make sure to let me know if this is okay with you by contacting me at: samiramcghee@gmail.com. Thanks!

  4. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're using? I'm
    going to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking
    for something completely unique. P.S Sorry
    for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  5. Admiring the time and effort you put into your website and in depth information you present.
    It's awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same outdated rehashed material.
    Fantastic read! I've bookmarked your site and I'm adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.
