Our Crown Princess Mary Obsession #1

It has taken much longer than I had expected, but here in the first post on my own Mary obsession. I would like to have my own finish quick so I can get on with yours as I am looking to post so much! When I first started to find all my stuff, it actually surprised me how much I really have. You all know what’s in my wardrobe because of the previous posts so I decided to skip that part. You don’t have to worry I have much more.

Where I store some of my more then hundred magazines

Right away Mary caught my attention, she was beautiful, she was the princess everybody talked about, she had the story any girl at my age would like to have and I had the feeling that she was a bit magical. You know I was 10. And it for real started when a read an article with a woman who had made a whole wall with pictures of the royals – I had to do the same. Years later Styleofmary came. I always had lots of fun trying to find the thing she wore, it is like a treasure hunt and at a time I was the only one who followed Mary and her style so intensely with so much focus on her wardrobe. Now we are several which has made it a little more difficult to find things before anyone else but this is not the main reason why I like this hobby. For me my readers are way more important and I really like to give all of you an experience when you are visiting my blog. There is no doubt that I’m addicted to royals, especially Crown Princess Mary but I don’t know why it has become an addiction to me. Maybe my blog is the reason?

I'm a bit old-fashioned because I love ‘physical’ magazines!

Sometimes it’s not bad to have en addiction, just look at my. I have this amazing blog and one on a known webside, Royalista. I have had the chance to be interviewed twice, met a very dear woman who now is indispensable in my life. Last but not least I got a really great job where to work with royals! After all my parents, friends and family have accepted that the royal-world is one I can’t live without. Without actually knowing it, they must think I’m a little (or pretty much) crazzy! But I like it.

What I hope I’ll get the chance to do next is visiting the exhibition in Odense I told you about two/three days ago and of course I’ll be working with Royalista on some very exiting projects! Hope you’ll join us.

As patron of Rare diagnoses…

Thursday, February 26

… visited Crown Princess Mary the Disability Organization's house in Taastrup, on the occasion of this year's ‘Rare Diseases Day’. She also visited the exhibition which is made to support the Danish Hospital Clowns where children have exhibited their drawings of clowns.

I love when Mary is with kids! They become so happy to see her (well you know because she’s a real princess) and she just light up, it’s some amazing moments. In a way there are a kind of spontaneous joy…

I don’t know what you think but somehow has Mary chanced her style and added some more cool and ‘rock and roll’ elements like black, leather, gold jewelry and suede clutches/shoes. I actually like that we see another side of her style. Today she wore a brand new BOSS Hugo Boss dress with a leather top and pencil skirt. Under the dress she had a black thin shirt with long sleeves and a collar. The boots are her reused suede once from Prada which I usually think looks stunning on her but it just work better when the skirt or dress is right over her knee.

The jewellry she had chosen are from Marianne Dulong. On some very few pictures I have seen a (new?) light brown suede clutch – did you see a glimpse of it? Well it matches almost too perfectly to the brown color on the dress. We know that she has a suede clutch from Hugo Boss, could this also be from that designer? That’s very likely.

BOSS Hugo Boss Women’s Leather & Twill Check Dress DKK 3,935.00

Prada High black suede boots €1120
Most shoes and clothes have a name but I can’t find out this model is called. I know they are made in Italy and the hight of the heel is 11.5 cm.

Marianne Dulong Aqua earrings DKK 13,200.00
These stunning earrings are made of 18 carat gold and Tahiti Pearls. I assume the bracelet is from the same collection ‘Aqua’ because they have a similar style. Unfortunately, it is not available in their webshop.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Wednesday, February 25

Crown Princess Mary attended a reception at Christiansborg which should focus on promoting women's rights in companies using CSR.

What is CSR?
CSR stands for Corporate Social Responsibility and the concept is used in companies' work in relation to integers socially and environmentally with the company's operations and in their interaction with stakeholders. The last few years has this concept become important to run a good business.

This is really something Mary is very passionate about and have in recent years spent much time on issues relating to women and children's rights. So I think it's a great thing for her to attend a reception like this and of course she was dressed suitable in a pair of simple black pant, a new white blouse with a little collar and a short jacket with a round neckline which made it possible to see the sweet collar on the blouse. At the children relay 2014 she also wore this jacket that’s why I can tell it’s from Prada. Unfortunatly I never had the chance to find the model.

With the grey suede ankle boots and the matching leather clutch she gave the look a twist and it became much more stylish! You might recognize the ankle boots from when she showed up to the CPH Fashion week and wore the new orange-striped jacket from Baum und Pferdgarten. The style is the same and I assume the boots are the same. I try to find them. The jewelry she had chosen was a pair of earrings in two colors – navy blue and dark yellow/mustard yellow and diamonds around the pendant as well. On her right wrist she wore two bracelets both from the Danish goldsmith Marianne Dulong and a gold ring with a light blue stone. 

From the Children Relay 2014 with the same short jacket as she wore over the white blouse.

Marianne Dulong Lumina bracelet DKK 30,750.00
Made of 18 carat gold with 8 diamonds. This is only one of many colors the bracelet is available in. You can also have it in silver, white gold and pink gold. They are all lovely!

‘Danish Fashion Now’

Brandts in Odense makes a new exhibition called 'danish fashion now' where they will show the Danish fashion is a trend right now where they also look at how fashion influences our everyday lives. You can read more about it HERE.

But the main reason why I tell you about this is because the exhibition also contains 10 of Crown Princess Mary’s dresses!!! I really hope I’ll get the chance to visit the exhibition but if any of you are that lucky I would love to hear about and maybe see some pictures. Let me know if you take a visit at the ‘Danish Fashion Now’.

You can visit the exhibition from March 27th until September 13th 2015.

"To you who wonder why I haven’t made any posts about ‘Our Mary obsession’ which I asked you to particiapte in, I have to admit that it has taken way too long. And I’m sorry. What I hope is to be able to make the first post within this week. Are you still up to it? I hope so!!!"

Ethiopia day 3

Wednesday, February 18

At the third and last day in Ethiopia she was in Addis Ababa where she visited a home who helps women and children, she had lunch with members of the civil society to talk about sexual mutilation and then she visited a company who try to be more sustainable. As some of the last things on her trip she visited a hospital and a reception.

I do not know if I can allow myself to say this but this has to be my favorite day for both Mary and everyone around her shone with delight. All the pictures show how sincerely Mary would like to take care of those who need it Children and adolescents, adults and old were so excited to meet her and so I think she was to met them.

This is how we use to see Mary with a lovely blue reused skirt from the Danish designer Signe Bøgelund-Jensen and a white long-sleeved blouse from Style Butler. One we also have seen before when she was in Myanmar. On her feet she wore her beige Tod’s wedges. As jewelry she had chosen a pair of earrings from the jewelry designer Louise Grønlykke and her ‘PICCOLO’ Marianne Dulong bracelet. The first thing i noticed was the colorful necklace – I think it could be a gift from one of the women she met along her visit.

Style Butler - SUZANNA blouse - $169.13 - model

Louise Grønlykke Marrakesh earrings DKK 7,500.00
They are made of 18 carat gold and black plated silver and 18 small diamonds. Aren't they stunning?!

Tod's Suede peep toe wedges DKK 2,900.00
They are made of goat leather and the heel is 80mm-3” high. And the color is called ‘soft caramel’. I would really like to see her wear these more, they are really great and matches almost everything!

At the reception

Mary really knows how to dress for a reception! In a brand new black lace dress with a belt in the waist. After a search with a good friend we have almost found the right model with a similar lace and belt, we are pretty sure the black lace dress is from Chloé and now I need your help to find the exact same model. Take a look at what we found and let me know what you think.

As accessories she wore a pair of purple shoes which I think we have seen before at their trip to Poland when she and Frederik celebrated their wedding anniversary and some new earrings which I would like to see in a better picture. At that time I suggested that the shoes were from Jimmy Choo. Have you seen a close up photo of them? And of course there is the new snake clutch but I don’t know the designer yet. Maybe it’s not the best combination of colors but I like the idea.
