A meeting for Global Child Forum

Today the King, Queen, Crown Princess Victoria, and Sofia Hellqvist held a meeting for the Global Child Forum.

While I was hoping that there would be more photos, I highly doubt it. When there is meetings held at the palace, the Royal Court is often the only one who takes photos. So we only get what they put on their website.

Anyway- on to the Royal Fashion. There is not much I can see so the only thing I can identify is Victoria's dress from Preen.

Replica's and an Update

Hey all- So I just wanted to write a post letting you know what is happening in the world of Swedes as well as give you some Replicas of some of the outfits that Victoria has worn.

First of all, I have joined Amazon's Affiliate Program which means if you purchase something from my blog via a link I have provided- I get a few pennies of the sale. Why you ask? Well in order to provide you with Tip Top coverage as well as continue to expand the blog, I have to make a few purchases of my own. (This will mostly be books because as this blog expands I hope to bring more details of things such as history and jewels to you). So anyway- you are under no obligation to purchase and I am not getting paid to say nice things- I say what is on my mind and I hope you continue to read.

NOW for the royal business- things have been quiet for the Swedes and will remain that way for another week. So I thought in the mean time I might offer you some replicas of some of my favorite pieces of jewelry!

Both Victoria and Sofia have been seen wearing butterfly necklaces recently- Victoria's from Kreuger Jewellery and Sofia's is Swarovski Better Butterfly Necklace . Now if you wish to splurge and spend 75 dollars on Sofia's you can do so, but here is a nice replica for a smaller price tag.

Now Victoria daily wears many bracelets from Sophie by Sophie on her wrist- my favorite is the open heart with white diamonds surrounding it but sadly I do not have 2,090 dollars to spend, but I think this is a nice alternative. 

That is it for today, what would you like to see replicas of? How can I improve this blog? Please PLEASE comment and let me know!

Victoria in March

Our Swedes have the next week or so off so the blog is going to be pretty quiet, so I decided that we might like to add a new feature- Month in Review. Now I don't promise that this will happen every month but I thought I might try it out and see the reception it gets. Anyway, let us look back at the outfits Victoria wore this past month.

On March 4th, Victoria was supposed to undertake a visit to Ă–stersund, but she was sick and pulled out after the morning. For this visit the only articles identified were her By Malene Birger scarf and her blazer she wore underneath. 

On March 9th, Victoria was back to work this time holding an audience at the Royal Palace. For this she wore a dress she debuted last year and it sadly has not been identified. She paired this with a Chanel clutch, new Tabitha Simmons heels, and her favorite Krueger Jewellery earrings, necklace, and ring. 

On March 12th, Victoria and Estelle attended the celebration of Victoria's Name Day in the Palace Courtyard. For this Victoria matched Estelle in her purple Prada coat over her By Malene Birger Blazer. For her accessories she wore earrings from Charlotte Bonde and a necklace from Carolina Gynnings.

The following day, March 13th, Victoria attended ICC's Annual Meeting in Stockholm. For this she wore her Greta top from a few years ago and carried a bag from Hunkydory. I am wondering if her skirt is from By Malene Birger but due to the lack of photos we have from this event I cannot say for sure. They have a leather skirt in their latest collection so I do suspect it could be from them. 

On March 20th, Victoria attended the Royal Academy of Science's meeting and wore her gown from Pronovias gown and her hair accessory from Jenny Packham. 

On March 21st, little Desiree Magnusson was baptized in Stockholm. For this Victoria rewore her COS dress underneath a brown jacket. (Note: I originally reported that this coat was from Prada but now after seeing a zoomed out photo of the label we suspect that it is not) Her bag is from Tod's and shoes from Tabitha Simmons.

On March 23rd, Victoria and Daniel began their visit to South Korea. For the first outfit of the day Victoria wore a top from Mayla.

For her 2nd outfit of the day Victoria wore her blue Prada coat (not pictured here) over a new blazer that remains UFO. She also carried her white bag from Ralph Lauren.

Victoria finished the final engagement of the first day in South Korea with a new dress from Mayla and shoes from Tabitha Simmons. I believe those earrings are from Charlotte Bonde but I am unsure still. 

For the beginning of day 2,March 24th, Victoria wore her Fadi el Khoury coat paired with a skirt from By Malene Birger. Her shoes are also from By Malene Birger and paired that with a necklace from Sophie by Sophie and earrings from Krueger Jewellery. 

For her 2nd outfit of the day, Victoria wore her dress and shoes from Dolce & Gabbana that she originally debuted at Leonore's baptism. 

For their final day in South Korea, March 25th, Victoria started the day by wearing her coat from Gant over a new dress from Ralph Lauren. She paired this with earrings from Ebba Brahe, her bag from Ralph Lauren, and Yves Saint Laurent heels. 

For the second and final outfit of the day and trip, Victoria wore a new top from By Malene Birger and I suspect again the skirt is from them as well. Her necklace and earrings are from Kreuger Jewellery and her shoes are from Tabitha Simmons. 

For her final appearance in March on the 30th, she and Daniel hosted an audience at the Haga. For this Victoria wore a blazer from Hunkydory and a top recently identified on Facebook to be from Opullence. Her necklace is from Sophie by Sophie. 

Overall this month Victoria played off a lot of monotones and there were no real big surprises besides the few photos of hair down. I would most certainly say her favorite shoes of the month are from Tabitha Simmons and pictured below. But other than that she did not favor any piece in particular. She stuck to her usual brands and had a good mix of new and old pieces. 

Which was your favorite outfit?
