GOD SAVE THE KING!

At the coronation

It’s been a year since our King Willem-Alexander took up his royal duties and I, for one, think he and his wife, the stunningly photogenic Queen Maxima, are doing a pretty great job. I have to admit that I gravitate towards pictures of our new queen, whose wardrobe absolutely kills me and who has enough charisma to fill a football stadium, but as a couple I believe they’ve really come into their own.

PROPS TO PISELLI PROJECTS

PiselliLast October I dedicated a post to my dear friend Emilie Kroner, who was making headway with her fabulous white ceramics animal collection by Piselli Projects.

EVERYBODY BELT UP

Belts2I am partial to a statement belt as a great way to complete an outfit. If you have a slim waist, it’s a perfect way to accentuate it, and if you don’t, it’s the best way to create the illusion of one. An outfit can go from plain and straightforward to spectacular with a great eye-catcher cinching the waist or draped around the hips.I think I might have to invest in a great one this season!
