Christmas Seal Homes for 100 year

October, 29

Crown Princess Mary attended the launch of this years christmas stamp 2012 which is designed by Carl Quist Møller. She's the patron of the Christmas Seal Homes (Julemærkehjem). This is also the 100 year of anniversary for the stamps - 1912 to 2012.

What is the Christmas Seal Homes?
In Denmark we have four of these homes for children who struggles with social isolation and bullying. Each year over 750 children, in the age of 7-14 years old, get help from the Christmas Sea Homes. The children stays there for 10 weeks and does also learn about eating health food and what excise is good for. The money from the selling of the stamps goes to these homes. Support the homes and read much more about all of it here and see the stamps here. 1

October is a month where the weather in Denmark is getting cold and rainy. To keep warm Mary was dressed in a navy blue turtleneck, which you can't live without and they are pretty inexpensive, and over she wore a black Prada jacket with sequins. It's a jacket we have seen her wear several times and there is an associated skirt. After her speech she stepped down from the rostrum we had a clear view to the boots, a pair of black ankle boots from Mulberry with the beautiful name Tillie. The classic bag from Bottega Veneta we all know. I think it is a great honor for Mary each year to publish the new Christmas stamps where the money goes to help many Danish children every single year and I hope that we this year once again can collect lots of money the children and this years stamps are really sweet!

Visiting the Geelsgaardskolen and Rosenborg Palace with Lady Silvia Gašparovičová

It's always a pleasure to see Mary around kids! Their happy faces makes Mary smiles, which makes me smile. She's so caring. On a October day, she had chosen a snow white suit from Prada with a pencil skirt. The suit is reused. Her legs were bare but she carried a floral white Paul Smith scarf, also reused. One of the most amazing colours in the Fall is bordeaux and Mary wore exact that colour as a leather clutch and her brand new pumps, identified by Kate as Pura Lopez. Thanks for the help. I'm sure both the Lady Silvia, Mary and the kids had a great day! Not to mention, they also visited Rosenborg Palace.

To me Mary look great in any imaginable colour and the moss green is no excuse! I suggest the new dress is a suede model from JOSEPH. What do you think, have I found the right one? After several years following Mary, I continue to be amazed by her wardrobe. Mariam made me aware of that the green earrings are new and is from the Danish jewellery brand Jewlscph. On her feet she wore a pair of nude Prada pumps and in her hand a black clutch that might be from Bottega Veneta.

At the airport when the President and wife arrives to Denmark

When the President and his wife arrived to Denmark by fly, they were welcomed by the Royal family. On a chilly day Mary was dressed in a grey suit and navy blue accessories. The complementary  colours made each of them look amazing next to each other. On her head she wore a beautiful navy blue hat made by milliner Susanne Juul and with some help the suede pumps has been identified as Prada. My gratitude goes to Pernille! With a pair of black pearl earrings, Marianne Dulong, she was so elegant at the arrival of the Slovakian President. Mary just know how to dress on such day.

In her reused blue Kenth Fredin gown, Mary was to me the star of the night! When she and Frederik arrived to the dinner she wore a Malene Birger fur worn several years ago at new years eve 2009. In the same blue colour she wore a pearl and aquamarine necklace and earrings. On her head she of course wore the diamond tiara from her wedding and her huge blue ring.

Day 2: Wedding in Luxembourg

October, 20

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the wedding of Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg and Stephanie de Lannoy, now Princess Stephanie of Luxembourg.

I must say Mary looked absolutely stunnning in the bordeaux suit! So beautiful. The grey Susanne Juul hat made a great contrast to the bordeaux colour and made her look stand out among all the royals outfits. You couldn't miss her. She hat we saw her wear at the opening of the parliament in 2009. Next to her husband, Frederik, she was glowing at the wedding. In the same amazing bordeaux colour she wore Prada pumps and then a dark grey Naledi Copenhagen clutch. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find out where the suit come from. The earrings she was wearing, are the one that matched the ole Ruby Parure, this day with a black sea pearl as pendant. 

I can't stop starring at her wonderful eyes which is the reason why you get two pictures in this post. For me as a huge Mary admire it's hard to chose only one single picture from an event.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary has arrived to Luxembourg

The photographers got a quick chance to get a few pictures of the Danish royal couple at the arrival to the dinner the day before the wedding. It was taken before the gala dinner. Even though they arrived more or less private, they both waved and smiled to the press. No doubt that I need to copy her outfit! The slim dress-pants and the white lace blouse with a grey cardigan is brilliant! Then she just added a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps, a leather bag and her Burberry trench coat. Look forward to see what she'll be wearing at the dinner.

Attending the gala dinner on the day before the wedding

... A brand new shiny red Jepser Høvring (Spring/Summer 2013) gown! I would love to have seen all of the gown. She matched the Ruby Parure to the new dress and a red lipstick. I'm thrilled to see that some changes has been done on the necklace. I'm already a fan. Now we'll leave them alone until the big day tomorrow. Are you ready, I am!

Crown Princess Mary at the arrival to St. Petersburg

To me Mary is a great inspiration and despite my young age I love to dress like her. I find her style one of the most inspiring and her way of match clothes is incredible. At the arrival to Russia, she once again convince me; her style is outstanding! Dressed in white trousers and a beige blouse with a new coat (identified of Pernille as SAND) and the amazing Christian Louboutin shoes. I don't know what you wear when you travel but my travel-style is much more casual then this. Makes me wonder if I should try to dress like this? Over her shoulder she wore an old light brown leather bag from Prada.

Bag: Prada
Jacket: SAND Grey Coat with Collar and Pockets 
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Décolleté 100 Pumps in Beige

From when Crown Princess Mary visited The Wild Swans exhibition 

The royal-blue colour is so amazing on Mary next to her brown hair! On a visit to Greenland she has worn it before with the Elise Gug brooch. My thanks goes to Kate for the help of finding the brooch. After a long time and hours with search the dress is finally identified and Jayson Brunsdon is the designer. At the arrival to the exhibition, she wore the same grey SAND coat as when she arrived to Russia. She kept the Christian Louboutin pumps on. Mary is known for her reuse of clothes as well as accessories; this time she reused her snake skin Prada handbag, made to clutch. Her wonderful earrings are from the exclusive jewellery brand Figaros Bryllup

Wauw... I'm the absolute lover of pastel colours and this match of DAY Birger et Mikkelsen silk blouse and the new Elise Gug pencil skirt is just amazing. The skirt has been found by Kate. The outfit show her slim figure and the colours make her the princess she is. You might feel my enthusiasm of the look! Every time I see her even though after 8 years of following her, she become more and more beautiful.
With some luck and a little knowledge I identified her new suede shoes as L.K. Bennett. I really hope she'll be wearing them again.

In the evening Crown Princess Mary attended a reception 

The visit has come to an end and at the reception the last day in Russia Mary was beautifully dressed in a black Hugo Boss dress, which she also has in white and red. She had chosen black pearl earrings and a bracelet both from Marianne Dulong. Then her shoes; in some way most women's eyes are drawn to other women's shoes they indicate (mostly) who we are and how our style is. With several confused hours and more then one to look for the new shoes. Now we know they come from By Malene Birger (AW 2012). I haven't been able to find the exact same clutch as the checkered she carried, my guess is that it's from Prada; please take a look at the link below and tell what you think.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the award of the Crown Prince Couples Award 20212 (Kronprinsparrets Priser 2012). Three awards were given: The Crown Prince Couples Culture Award, The Crown Prince Couples Social Award 2012 and the Stardust Award.

Mary keeps impress me with her clothes and pretty sure this dress also made an impression on you. A dress like this has to be made of one of the best in the world, everything on the it is made beautifully. I'm not sure if it came as a surprise when Pernille identified the dress as being created by the Danish designer Malene Birger. She really is a great designer and it's shown right here with this dress also with the stunning beadwork! To an outfit like this she wore black satin Prada pumps, a clutch and black jewellery. The black bracelet looks a lot like the white Catena from Marianne Dulong which is why I assume she could be the creator of this one as well.

October, 02

After a long holiday for the Danish members of the Parliament, the entire royals family attend the opening at Christiansborg Palace.

I'm not a big follower of politics but this time a year when the royal family show up, I'm the first to be a listener. Loved the feminine outfit Mary was wearing, lace all over. Now you might sunder, where does this amazing clothes come from? And that's where I enter the scene. The jacket is a Prada and the stunning lace work is a blouse and skirt from the Danish designer Julie Fagerholt's brand Heartmade (Spring/Summer 2010). On the feet was a pair of beige Miu Miu pumps with the characteristic metal detail on the heel. Has so be one of my favourites.

Two other great accessories was the black pearl earrings from Marianne Dulong and a beige FW 2011/2012 Naledi Copenhagen clutch and of course there's her Susanne Juul hat. So beautiful!
