light drops

Too late for the gift at Chrysalis... .. sigh. The gifts there are always just 3 days there to grab. But... it was worthwhile to go there because the discount part of the shop (all under 80ld , go upstairs near the landingspoint) has beautiful things. This gorgeous gown in royal blue reminded me of the royal gown from our queen Maxima at the day her husband became king. What is the history of royal blue? King George 3rd (1760 to 1820) challenged clothiers nationwide to produce a colour suitable for use by Royalty. Scutts Bridge mill  in Rode, where cloth for the royal liveries was already being made, produced the winning colour.  It was a very rich blue, which became known as 'The Royal Blue'.  It was selected for a robe for Queen Charlotte and King William 4th (1830 to 1837) gave a certificate authorising its sale by that name.
With a royal gown goes a huge hat. This one is from Xen's hats. Also good for summer at the beach.
The necklace and armband are in the groupgift of WTG. Also earrings included. The hair is a gift at  Due. It is a fatpack.
