The Royal Wedding: Evening Reception

If my invitation didn't get lost in the mail:

I would choose a palette of red, black, and gold to wear to the Evening Reception of the Royal Wedding.  My budget: unlimited, and I am pretty sure I am breaking etiquette rules with this outfit (no need for a hat at the Reception, but it was added for good measure).  After all, this is only a dream invite.


Are you tuning in to watch the Royal Wedding, I am...

  4. Love the outfit that you put together. I'm not really a hat person, but I've loved all the hats that they've been showing on TV. Haven't watched it yet...DVRed it for tonight to watch with some friends while eating cucumber and salmon and cream cheese sandwiches :) Toodles!

  18. I'm dying to see images from their reception! I feel like they did a good job of keeping the media OUT of that...

    I did hear, though, that Ms. Pippa made eyes turn in her emerald green low-cut gown (I'm telling you this only because I know you love that color!)

  19. Phillip Treacy - what a perfect choice (though I wasn't sure about his hats for Beatrice and Eugenie...)

    Just discovered your blog through {tig}. Will be following you from now on - would be lovely if you popped by my blog and followed me too!

  20. Some of those hats were so wacky! I didn't like the hats/outfits of Fergie's daughters.
