Abbe of Studio Ten 25 recently had a great post about the simplistic but beautiful set design. You can see the set design and Abbe’s post by clicking here.
I also loved the elegant fashions King George VI & Queen Elizabeth wore in the movie.
King George VI & Queen Elizabeth had 2 daughters: Elizabeth and Margaret. The current reigning Queen of England is one of the daughters and now named Queen Elizabeth II:
You know I love hats and truly wish Americans continued to wear them more, like the Brits do.
I put together a small collage of pics of Queen Elizabeth II in a few of her many beautiful outfits with hats.
Notice all her cute brooches too.
Beautiful lace detail on the hat and her collar:
One of my fave hats:
Love her lil grin here & this color combo is great:
Another great color mix:
I can’t wait to see the hats the beautiful Kate Middleton will be wearing!
She’s got great style and will be such a trendsetter!
Do you have great hats and fab coats that just beg for display?
An industrial Ballard’s coat rack would be great in an entry:
If space is a concern, this coat/hat rack is really Frenchy and cute.
If the color isn’t right for you, it could be really cute spray painted a white or a neutral grey.
You can order one HERE.
Malene Birger uses a basic garment rack in her entry . Although it’s basic, it’s industrial chic with the gorgeous coats.
I’ve seen a blog post recently and could NOT remember which one. But someone took a spare bedroom and turned it into a fabulous extra dressing room. The designer painted the walls a fun color and hung a chandelier in the middle of the room. She used rolling garment racks around the perimeter of the room. Created a beautiful dressing room! If someone knows the resource for that room, please let me know!
And keeping with the English theme here, I thought I’d pass on a great idea, teacup organization!
I recently spotted this cute idea on Marcus Design. Tea cups & saucers are a great way to display your jewelry, but could also be used for any office desk drawer too.
(ie: paper clips, rubber bands, push pins, etc.)
One of my favorite old sayings from the Karate Kid movie:
“HOME IS WHERE YOU HANG YOUR HAT”
(Luke’s fetish for hats)
And if you really want to read the true meaning of that saying, click
All the best!
P.S. I always wondered why I get subscribers but not many “followers” and thought maybe people just don’t click “follow” anymore? Maybe I got on the blog band wagon too late and people didn’t want to follow more blogs? But lately I received alot of “subscribers” in the last few days due to the Stylish Blogger Award post. Thanks to all those who recently signed up!! You mean alot to me!!! But still since the past few weeks, NO new followers, just subscribers. So, I really studied my blog design. I realized I had the “click here to subscribe” space up high on the right bar and people readily would see it. However the “followers” box was way low on the right bar! So, I’m thinking that’s the cause. I moved the “followers” box up to the top right also, so that maybe people WILL click follow!
If you haven’t clicked “follower”, but are a subscriber, then I’d SO appreciate it if you also clicked “follower”….it helps me know more about my “followers”!
P.S.S. Remember to check out the pillows on my Etsy site HERE. Cuz you’ll need some fresh new pillows for the Spring girls!!
