I, being somewhat of an Anglophile (okay, an AVID Anglophile), was completely entranced by the royal wedding yesterday. I loved the somewhat austere solemness of it; the sense of royal history, and seemingly true love and dedication between William and Kate. Of course, I loved Kate’s dress. It was perfectly elegant, modern and gorgeous. The dress really suited Kate’s individuality, and her lovely radiance shone through, not being obscured by mounds of frothy meringue.
Well, imagine my surprise when I saw what Kate wore to the Buckingham Palace wedding reception. The dress was another lovely creation by Sarah Burton for McQueen; a strapless ivory silk gazar gown, with a sparkling band of diamante cinching her tiny waist. What really caught my attention though was the fabulously fluffy white angora bolero sweater that topped the whole ensemble!
You see, I love angora and am thrilled to see it in its rightful place on royal shoulders! Angora is just incredible; its furriness, lightness, and silky softness is beyond compare. To see Kate wearing such a stunning sweater is delightful. You can see the delicate fluffiness of the angora rabbit hair fibers reaching for the sky. I would guess that her sweater is at least 80% angora, but probably 100% pure angora (she is royalty, after all).
So don that royal angora! If you’ve never worn it before, you are in for a true sensory delight. You too, can have the same excellent sartorial experience that Princess Catherine has. Fluffy rocks!
