It took me ages to find a way  of wearing my hairpiece that I liked but I got used to it by the end of the day and actually quite enjoyed it. I was also relieved that no one else was wearing the same one. My friend bought a black fascinator from Accessorize and saw fifteen people in the same one. So for future reference, I would definitely recommend customising your hat, even if it’s just sticking a couple of flower brooches on it or something..

 Is there anything more British than bunting?

My friends and I were very taken with this hat, I’d have liked to see it even simpler though, the bow was unnecessary.

 An excellent money making scheme, women were wandering around barefoot from about 2pm onwards…

 An ingenious woman who wouldn’t let a little thing like mud and grass stop her from wearing her stilettos!

 I pity the person who had to clean this up… 😦

 I decided that sunglasses under the veil didn’t look as stupid as I had feared.  Thankfully, as it was a gorgeously sunny day!

The gloriously British sing-along at the end was my favourite part (horses are actually pretty boring), although if I never hear “Land of Hope and Glory” again, it’ll be too soon! (They played it FOUR times!)

Love,

The Styletterie

 

NB. I wrote this post last night. This morning I went to a friend’s citizenship ceremony.

Where they played “Land of Hope and Glory”.
