#CosmopolitanChic‏

lg_Cosmo---1---Exterior
I am so lucky to have been asked if I would make a post of Vegas.com along with some other bloggers, called #Cosmopolitan Chic. The task I was given was to show some outfit I would wear at different times of the day. So for a moment, I visit the wonderful Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
 
Let the challenge begin!
 
Vegas.com offers all the best in hotels, shows, tours and clubs etc. If you visit their website here, I'm sure many of you would want to be there right now. I would in any case!

For me it is always important to look good even when you arrive, so I have decided that my first outfit must be from arrival at the Cosmopolitan. I have a very classic style which certainly quickly will notice. I love when every part of your outfit speaks for itself. The things I've chosen can also easily be combined in a different way so you gets a whole new look. A trendcoat in beige can be used whether it is summer or winter. It is indispensable just as the red lip stick. I guess I'm what you call "addicted" of the red lipstick. And naturally who can live without a pair of black pumps and dark jeans?! The striped blouse, I think emphasizes the classic style with the lipstick. A brown leather bag matches perfectly for the outfit and is very useful.

I'm usually not the type who loves to splash around in a pool. But I enjoy lying by the pool on a good chair and feel the sun on your skin. Again, I have chosen something very classic which in turn can be used in other ways. I find great inspiration in the 50s as you might see in this outfit. Although that the bathing suit is black, I love the cute detail at the chest. It can also be used with a pair of colorful shorts. The hair bow is just for fun but it a very used accessory in the 50s, like the great gold bracelet is vintage, that is recycled from that time. Animal print is not something I like very much, but a few accessories are cool as the sunglasses. Brown is a big part of my own wardrobe and is a great basic color, which is why I chose a pair of brown leather sandals. If this outfit should be extra cool, I would recommend 'Forever Yummy' from Essie. The most beautiful red color!

One of the things I really LOVE when I'm on vacation is to be allowed to read a good book, the time to relax. And this is best done with a book and with this view it can not be better. One of my favorite authors is Dan Brown, his books contain everything! I know the book I have chosen is a few years old, but it should be read. Navy is a color I like very much to use and this short jumpsuit is perfect for the purpose. It is modern, chic and relaxing at the same time. Gold jewelry has over the years become a huge part of my collection and a necklace with your own initial or someone you care fits perfectly with this outfit, such as the ankle bracelet with. Again, the leopard sunglasses really are great for reading on the terrace.

Finally, it became dinner time and I have now come to my final outfit. Black is always a good basic color and especially when we are talking about lace. I love using lace in every possible way and here I have chosen it to be a simple blouse with lace so you can see the skin underneath. It is so beautiful! If not everything should be black – that will be a bit borring, I think it's stunning to combine it with a completely different color as the dusty green and red lipstick. In this way, you’ll  notice every different parts of the outfit. The black earrings helps to emphasize the lace is so beautiful in itself. For all the outfits I would choose to have large loose curls because it is so feminine. I am a major “user” of curls, if you can say that!

I hope this post has helped to inspire you, like Mary's style has helped to inspire me.

The Bambi Charity Award 2014

Thursday, November 13

Crown Princess Mary particiapated, together with Crown Prince Frederik, in The Bambi Charity Award 2012 in Berlin. Crown Princess Mary did also received an award.

The Bambi award was first handed over in 1948. The deer is a symbol of hope in a time where many had a toufh everyday. Originally, the BAMBI was a film prize where the readers of ‘Filmrevue magazine’ chose their favorite big screen star. As the television found their way into more homes, the readers could also chose between the small screen too.

For you who have not seen or read Mary beautiful speech when she received the award, I think you need to take the time to read it, it deserves at least as much attention as her new dress – HERE you can read it by the link “H.K.H. Kronprinsesse Mary’s tale”

WauW! I am completely overwhelmed by how beautiful Mary was at the award. Her new navy blue, glittering Jesper Høvring dress was breathtaking combined with the most stunning accessories. Because of the hair-do you could see her aquamarine earrings with diamonds which matched the blue dress, just as the huge aquamarine ring on her right hand. At the same arm she wore a Ole Lynggaard diamond bracelet and when you look at her hand then see that she is wearing burgundy nail polish! It’s a great detail together with the red/pink lipstick. One of you send my some pictures of a clutch from Michael Kors which might be the new navy blue clutch she wore. I haven’t found a close-up on the clutch that would make it much easier to see whether it’s the right one or not. Tell me what you think.

Mary and Frederik looked amazing together on the red carpet!


Jesper Høvring Navy blue dress with asymmetric neckline from the AW 2014. As you might have seen, it has been changed a bit because Mary’s dress has a little peplum on the waist and her’s are of course not transparent.

Internationl conference in Copenhagen

Tuesday, November 11

At Christiansborg Castle was held an international conference dealing with FGM/C. As patron of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Crown Princess Mary held a speech at the conference. In the evening she attended a dinner in occassion of the conference.

It was a very moved Crown Princess who came to the conference, which is understandable since it is a very sensitive issue. But Mary is not afraid to take it up and has made it clear that something has to be done. She was dressed in a simple black and white outfit; in a black turtleneck dress, a pair of black patent pumps and a long white jacket. The jacket is recycled and was seen on her way back in 2005/2006. It has repeatedly been said that the jacket from Chanel and it may be true because the style is very similar. But I have never found any evidence that it might be true. Either the jacket has changed  or she has two jackets that are similar, you decide: Here, here, here, here  

The small gold earrings with white beads are made by the goldsmith Marianne Dulong. Let us for a moment take a look at her black clutch. I would really like to ask for your help to find it because Mary, the fact have it in several colors - light gray, blue/navy and now black. And I do not know where to find it.


Here you have a close-up picture of the clutch in light grey, I hope this will help you if you would like to help me find out where it’s from!

#SharpDressedMan

About a week ago I received an email from the Community Engagement Coordinator by Paul Fredrick, where it was asked to participate in their project "Sharp Dressed Man" which consists of various bloggers give their opinion about what they think men should wear. And of course I said YES!! Why should Styleofmary always be about women's style? I know that lots of you takes notice of the clothes Crown Prince Frederik is wearing. That is way I really want like to participate in the project. Every pieces of clothes and accessories that are shown in this post can be bought ‘HERE

Enjoy! – Styleofmary

Who is Paul Fredrick?

”Paul Fredrick was founded 25 years ago. Originally specializing in dress shirts, our collection has grown exponentially as has our number of satisfied long-term customers. We design, manufacture and directly distribute every item in our collection. No wholesalers. No store fronts. Just great style at everyday prices.”

The most desired style of dress shirt and tie


When to choose the right dress shirt I think it’s important you find one that matches your age. For me younger men should wear a bit more “clean” print as the first two pictures. Dress shirts with too much print often becomes messy and too much are going on. If you choose “clean” and simple colors/print you’ll look more sharp! It needs to be classic and simple. When you become a bit older, a mix of pattern will look much better on you, picture 3. With a change of the colors and the pattern shows that you are not afraid of life and to stand out. What I think men needs to know about wearing dress shirts, is that they can also be used with a normal pair of jeans, which gives the outfit a more casual expression.

What accessories worn best and when?

Please, please, please why are men not wearing hats anymore?! I would love to see more men wear a hat and women too. If you choose a hat as picture 1, you’ll get a very casual look without being overdressed or look dull. A belt is always a great accessory and the brown color is good for a winter and a summer outfit, just as the suspenders which were used much more in the old days. I’m in love with these on picture 2! They are classy, modern and super stylish at the same time. These three accessories, you can wear any time a day . In my opinion the accessories makes the outfit and if you want to wear something more fun, then do it!! The top three pictures are a bit more summer-like where the bottom are perfect for fall and winter season. When you choose which accessories you want to wear, then deside if you want your clothes or your accessories to stand out – not both.

When is the best time to wear a suit?

One word: ANYTIME! I’m really old fashioned and I wish that more men would wearing a suit more often. Yes they might be a bit uncomfortable but it looks great and almost every women love it. For me there is no age for when to start wearing a suit or stop using it. Everybody can wear one. I think many men are afraid of wearing a suit, which may be the younger generation because they are not used to it. But a suit can also be casual, if you only wear one part or two at a time. The most inportant is to find a suit that fits you and of course one you actually would wear. No doubt that I like men wearing suits, most women does. If you ask me you can use it at any occassion in the everyday and in the evening. Another thing I think is important, is to keep it simple – when there are pattern on the shirt and the tie there should be only a little/or non on the rest. Take a look at the pictures I have chosen from Paul Fredrick’s page; the older an men gets the more casual is becomes. Aren’t they looking good?!

Ways to dress down but still stand out

I have talked a little about how you can be shared dressed but in a casual way. There are certain ways for you to look dressed down but still stand out. I really love when men are wearing dark pants for instance jeans or wool pants. These can be combined with the jacket from your suit, a cardigan or a sweater. If you want to stand out, I will suggested a combination of a pair of dark pants with a colorful cardigan. It can also be used with accessories with pattern and colors. With a mix of textures you will get a more casual look and still stand out without being overdressed. By selecting woolen materials, etc., your outfit will instantly seem more subdued. You might have seen that two of the three pictures the model are not wearing a tie, which is another tip for you to look more casual but still handsome.

My advice

  • Wear what you like
  • Keep it simple
  • Make a differece between our everday and evening outfit
  • Wear clothes in the right size
  • Be confident in what you are wearing

THESE ADVICE ALSO APPLIES TO WOMEN!
