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.
