The Queens Inspirational Fashion History...

Since her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee has passed, I thought I'd dedicate this post to her by taking a trip down memory lane (not that I remember!) through her past fashion sensations; and the various inspiring outfits she modeled before and after she became queen. Like our current Kate Middleton setting trends and inspiring young women; Queen Elizabeth was once the Fashionista of her time, and I want to share with you a few of the beautiful outfits that she wore with both elegance and grace.

Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh enjoyed the rousing fun of a Canadian square dance during their second night in Ottawa. The Princess wore a brown checked blouse with white Peter Pan collar and cuffs and a flared blue skirt with beaded embroidery.

She was so beautiful, right!? And just to think that she's managed to keep constantly in vogue while performing her many wonderful royal duties for 60 years is such a great achievement! Congratulations your majesty on your Diamond Jubilee and hope that we can celebrate many more years under your reign! x
