What I'd wear to a Royal wedding!

Romance and royalty have never really gone hand and hand (illicit affairs excluded of course) until now...and it's all thanks to the absolutely gorgeous Kate and the previously-attractive Prince William. This delightful couple have brought hope to the world that watch them by simply choosing each other and being allowed to do so. Throwing the wedding of the century is no easy task though and not the least of all is selecting an outfit. Kate's dress is of course the epicentre of attire and will be the star attraction, but guests' ensembles will be paramount too. Not too much flesh, preferably a headpiece of some sort, a demure cover-up that can be removed post Westminster Abbey and the whole thing must be at an approproate length...
I'd opt for this Armani Prive metallic number as it ticks all the boxes but the futuristic shimmmer and UFO-style hat and leggings add a little something-something that just makes me smile. I'd also arrive via spaceship.

Who wears the pants?

Judging by the looks of this Autumn it certainly seems I will be wearing the pants! Trousers, as they are formally known, are really making themselves at home in my wardrobe of late and I have to say I am welcoming their presence. I used to find the old pair of pants.. well "pants!" really, to adopt a common Brit-type derogatory term. But these days I think a pair of well cut trousers can do wonders for many a lass. Nicely fitting trousers can be so much more flattering on the female formed compared to a pair of jeans and it's easy to see that the high-waisted variety does wonders for the length of your legs!
The icing on the cake for me though is how wonderfully they accompany a pair of insanely high, uber-sexy stacked heels or wedges.
