Our Crown Princess Mary Obsession # 5

Sarah has chosen this photo to be her favourite recent family photo from a vacation in Verbiér. 

Once again it's time to get to know one more Crown Princess Mary fan! As always I'm thrilled to show you these posts because it means so much to me, to make my readers a part of this blog - without you there wouldn't be any Styleofmary. In this obsession post we hear from the great woman Sarah. I think it has been a few years since Sarah made contact to me and to me it has always been a pleasure to be in touch with her. Thanks to another reader, I got this idea of making your posts, we are so lucky to hear Sarah's story!

Actually Sarah didn't knew anything about the Danish royal family and followed Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. She saw the style of our Crown Princess Mary and fell in love with it (just like all of us did). Sine Sarah realized how amazing Mary's style was, she started categorize it each and every year. Make her fell welcome. Styleofmary present to you Sarah's blogpost!

So Sarah, what made you initially to follow Crown Princess Mary?

"In 2011 I started following Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and came across a blog called 'Kate and Mary' which features both ladies." Next Sarah tells that she only knew very very little about the Royal family from Denmark: "I didn't know anything about the Danish Royal Family (in fact I didn't even know there was one!) but I liked what I saw of Mary's style and started follow both of them." I have to say it made me smile when I read this line of her not knowing Denmark have a royal family, well we in fact have one of the oldest monarchy in the world with a hundreds of years history. To you who have interest in history, Denmark have a pretty exciting one even though we are a small country.

Could you tell more about your CP Mary addiction/obsession? How did it all start?

" I soon discovered that Mary had married Frederik in 2004 and that there were more than 7 years of her outfits to look at! I think we all know the felling when we find a new blog or if you are completely new in the royal-blog-world; there are so much to look at and in the beginning it seems overwhelming! She goes on: "It was very interesting to see how her style developed and I started to keep pictures of her outfits (I have them in a Word-document, one for each year) and information on the designers of the clothes, accessories etc." Let me tell, you that her job with this document are really well organized with multiple sides of information. It is not common to see such dedication.

This beautiful hairdo is absolute loved by Sarah!

Please tell us why this collection of pictures and information about Crown Princess Mary clothes and accessories have became such an addiction (inspiration?) to you?

"I really love Mary's style! She's not afraid to experiment with colours and pattern (I don't like clothes with a log of plain colours) and reuses many of her outfits in different and interesting ways. I think she almost always looks appropriate for the occasion she's dressing for and can look good in anything from jeans to a fabulous evening gown."

" She's always well-groomed and accessorizes so well - I love her jewellery and shoes as much as her clothes! There is always something to look forward to when she has en engagement.  

Here's a funny question: Does you loved ones think you're a little crazy with all this royal stuff?

Quickly and short she answers: "My loved ones don't really know the extant of my obsession but they would probably think I'm crazy if they did!"

Here you have Sarah's favourite party dress from when Frederik turned 40, 2008

Sarah, have you planned what you'll do next with your Mary-obsession? 

" I shall just continue with my obsession as it is. I would never be able to afford any of the clothes she wears - and probably wouldn't be able to get them where I live - but I do get inspiration for my own outfits from what Mary wears and think she's a fantastic example of how to dress as you get older without looking too young or too old!" A statement I share. Mary really know how to dress appropriate in every stage of life. From normal woman to Princess, then from Princess to Crown Princess and last from being a mother and at the same time being the Crown Princess of Denmark. 

I hope you enjoy reading this post as much as I did! Don't worry this is not the last obsession-post, I will have some really great once left.

Even though the lack of colours on this trip to Germany on Mary, I'm think it's great to see her in the reused white JOSEPH dress with what I'm sure is a beige rivets belt from Valentino. As yesterday Mary repeated the succes of making the apple pasta (?) in Munich. What I like about this outfit compared with the first time she wore the dress with the belt is the fact that her hair is in a updo. That really made me happy and even more because it's that beautiful. It shows her porcelain face. She wore the outfit back in 2014 at the FRS Award. Earrings is from Marianne Dulong with large freshwater pearls. The clutch could be her suede Hugo Boss, a little hard to tell. Let me know if you find the right one. Her pumps are from Christian Louboutin.

When parcipating in the opening of the Fritz Hansen exhibition, Mary got the change to sit in one of the famous 7' chear in almost every colour patchwork and here her white dress was so perfect. Both the chear and her matched. This was the final day in Germany and it differently ended with manner. Good looking in her JOSEPH dress and then some wonderful pictures of her getting a gentle kiss for her husband. We need more of these trips! Thanks for following the visit with me here on Styleofmary.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary in Munich

Well, here you get the final post with all the latest pictures and info about her entire outfit. I know I was a bit quick with the posting earlier today, it's just that I find it so interesting and exciting to follow the couple on a trip like this and to all of us who do not have the change to follow them live in Germany, I really want to give you the latest news right away! Wan't say that I'm disappointed about todays outfit but it would have been nice to see her add something, like other shoes or a colourful clutch, to her reused look. Most of the outfit she reused from visiting Canada in 2014. She was wearing a white silk Elise Gug blouse pleated black skirt from Danish designer Signe Bøgelund-Jensen. To make her waist stand out she chose, the same as first time, a black and white thin belt. She also wore white pearl earrings from Marianne Dulong. As in 2014 Mary added her python pumps from Christian Louboutin to make her look even better. The black clutch is from Carlend Copenhagen, the same as the pink one from yesterdays evening. These days the weather is unpredictable and changes from sunshine to black rain clouds, therefor she brought a white Prada coat with her and wore it when it started pouring rain down.

To me it was great to see them together all day. Often they split up and do events on own hand. Today this changed; they stayed together throughout the day. Makes me so happy. Yesterday, at the arrived to Hamburg, Mary received several large bouquets and had a little trouble handling all the flowers. Well, today she did not drop any of them but at the arrived to reopening of ECCO's Flagship Store she once again received a large bouquet of beautiful white flowers. I think the German people have been looking forward to them visiting they country. We have been looking forward to the trips as much as they have. Haven't we?

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attending dinner at Residenz Castle

When the clock turned 7:30 pm. Frederik and Mary arrived to the attend dinner at the Residenz Castle. According to several articles, they were both in an excellent mood. I saw the first pictures from the dinner right before I went to bed last night and my excitement of her new jumpsuit (?!?) almost killed me. This is so unusual for Mary to chose first of all a jumpsuit, think we have only seen her in one once before at her friend Amber's 40 years birthday party years ago, and second the print is so 'not-the-normal-Mary-style' but as everything else she looks amazing. After all the excitement I couldn't sleep, I just had to find the designer of this little wonder and... I did! It's from the great Danish designer Ole Yde from his RTW Spring 2015 collection. Think that Ole Yde once again proved that he's his title as designer worthy. Can't hold my impresstion back. Sorry.

She made the look even more amazing with some great accessories. Her statement earrings is from the Danish jewellery brand Ole Lynggaard and have been seen before. With the good eyes of Pernille we now know that the bracelet she wore in the evening is from Georg Jensen's Spring/Summer 2015 collection designed by Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe. Thanks! Maybe it was a gift from Georg Jensen when they participated in the reopening of a store earlier today? The bracelet is available in several different colours, I think Mary's could be in rose gold or pure gold. The light wavy hair gave her a femiine touch. Both clutch and belt were in black and had the stunning sparkeling effect. Have we seen the belt before? Kate made me aware of Mary's black patent pumps is from Gianvito Rossi. Thanks for the help.

A New Look for Styleofmary!

A few months ago I mentioned that some changes would come. That happened now! So welcome the new look of Styleofmary. Despite my lack of knowledge of technology I have for a long time wanted to make something new and good-looking about the theme. Be kind to me and the new look but I would really like to hear what you think. Try to move around the blog and see what works and absolutely not work, then let me know.  Try to make a comment, click on links etc. Your feedback is very important to me. And to you who think the style of the blog just changed again, you're right. I had to do that because my some of my things were gone; can't live with that. This is much more my style, the other one way way too complicated. Now I promise you there'll only be a few details fixed, so both you and me get use to the new design! Sorry to you I have confused the last two days.

Excited wishes from Styleofmary!
