Hofdame Bits and Bobs

It’s been a week of colorful summer prints, so into the floral stew we go. Come along, Baguettes and Hofdudes!


Are you the sporty type? Interested in sport(s)? Then this week’s Getty photos, full of sailing and eventing, are here for you.


Daisy continues her summer of pink, wearing an outfit we saw previously in June. She visited Tønder Municipality to celebrate the postponed commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Reunification in 1920.

In anticipation of the Queen’s visit, the second and third years at Løgumkloster District School submitted drawings of the Queen, which were then compiled into an exhibit for her viewing pleasure. I am sure artistic Daisy appreciated it! I wish we had known, we would have slipped them one of our doodles!


We don’t have a lot of news out of this royal house, so I am glad to see they are back to full-bore celebrations after the pandemic hiatus.


Camille Gottlieb donned some Zara zazz and bow-embellished shoes for her night on the town. Lots of pink on offer here.

Tatiana Casiraghi wore a print from her own business, Muzungu Sisters. She established the business in 2009 with her partner Dana Alikhani. Its mission is to bring the work of artisans from all around the world to the public.


H/T to Iselen for all the identifications! The Spanish royal family, Queen Sofía and Princess Irene went out for dinner at Ola de Mar restaurant. Letizia’s dress from Mango is new, sandals from Jack Rogers. Princess Leonor’s dress is from Babbaki. Both ladies’ bags are made with ikat, the traditional fabric of the island. Infanta Sofia wears a blouse and skirt from Designers Society.

We don’t have access to these photos, but Queens Letizia and Sofia, and Princess Leonor, and Infanta Sofia were spotted visiting the Paseo de Sagrera market. You can see the photos here.


The King and Queen visited Gårdsfisk, an integrated farm, and aquaculture that breeds fish. The Queen went very literal with her fish shirt.

The Swedish royals (Crown Princess Victoria, the King, and the Queen attended the confirmation of a family friend’s daughter. I am envious of the kind of summer weather that allows for long sleeves and scarves!


The Duchess of Windsor’s “Lobster” dress ignited an interesting discussion last year, so I thought you all might have some interest in this Schiaparelli exhibition.

I know we have seen this dress before, but another look at Madame Handley-Seymour’s creation cannot go amiss.
