A StaRoyal Wedding

Again, apologies for not posting for such a long time.
Other activities are unfortunately delaying my posts, first of all because I want to have personal-made by myself things to post rather than repost news that have already been posted everywhere else.
Also I have some good news, I am working on my Fall/Winter 2011/12 collection right now which has been fully sketched, I just need to finish making it in Illustrator and do some final touches.
But for now, I have something very up-to-date, which is of course the Royal Wedding.
The fact that normal people can't get invited to the ceremony, and even less to the evening reception, can't stop us Stardollians from attending the wedding in our virtual world!
And for that reason my doll flew to London 5 days ago to attend that gorgeous wedding, and here is what she wore:

Day 1 - The Ceremony

Along with the invitation came a dress-code which was several pages long, describing what an appropriate or inappropriate outfit would be for the ceremony held in Westminster Abbey. Going along the appropriate way of course, I chose to wear a Fall 2010 Victoria Beckham dress, nude satin Miu Miu sandals (sold at net-a-porter.com), a burgundy Hermes croc clutch and the most important part of the outfit - a fascinator hat. I contacted Philip Treacy and I got this gorgeous rose hat presented back in 2000. A rose gold ring finished the look.

Day 1 - The Evening Reception

There wasn't a dress code for the evening reception which only meant one thing - guests could go as bold as they can. For that reason I chose to wear this gorgeous Spring 2005 Alexander McQueen dress, which had been locked in my closet for 6 years, waiting for the right occassion. Since we did not have much time to change for the reception, I kept the same hair&makeup, including the Miu Miu sandals and jewelry. The other thing I traded was the rose Treacy hat for this gorgeous vintage striped feather hat that perfectly complimented the dress.

Day 2 - Shopping in London

My second day in London was reserved for shopping of course - and I definitely respected the classic sentence "Shop til' you drop". Since I rarely go to London for any other purpose than London Fashion Week, I decided to sport mainly British designers during the wedding period. For that purpose I wore a Pre-fall 2010 Burberry dress, Fall 2010 leopard Balmain coat and studded Sonia Rykiel platform sandals. I finished the look with gold Ray Ban aviator sunglasses and an Alexander McQueen clutch.

Day 3 - A Royal Lunch

My 3rd day in London was close to perfect, as I got invited to a lunch thrown by Prince William and Catherine, Dutchess of York. I am a close friend to London-based designer Mary Katrantzou, and she was very kind to send me this gorgeous dress from her Spring 2011 collection. I accessorized with my favorite Miu Miu heels, the rose gold ring and a flower headpiece I had bought the other day in London.

Day 4 - The Tea Party

As a "thank you" to all the close friends that were invited to the wedding and who had stayed in London for a longer period of time, the royal couple threw a private tea party in Buckingham Palace. For this goodbye party I wore a dress from another London-based designer, Marjan Pejoski. I finished the look with the Miu Miu heels, a Sonia Rykiel puff headpiece, a plastic Fendi clutch from the Spring 2010 collection and a pearl ring.

And now my doll is back in New York, missing the British wedding days. I hope you liked the fashions I've sported at this event. I honestly can't wait for another occassion like this to get all glammed up for, since it has been such a fantastic experience!
