Her Majesty the Queen

Perhaps this seems a little redundant from the theme last night, but we’re simply stepping it up a notch.  After the frenzy that the royal wedding produced, lots of newly engaged girls are looking for that regal number that will give her the elegance of a queen.
What are the elements for royalty?  First off, lace is a great place to start, particularly when accompanying sleeves.  Secondly, a queen must have a train!  Thirdly, a queen can go nowhere without her tiara.  These are all essentials for the bride that envisions her wedding day in a cathedral.
Other queenly accessories? The full veil high on the head, it would work perfectly with the tiara.  Adding the slightly taupe and lace heels is a fun way of tying the dress and the shoes together and they feel so Marie Antoinette.  And what queen would be without her enormous but quaint engagement ring?  True it isn’t a sapphire but the shape of the flower blossom is just as sweet.

What to Wear with Patterned Heels

They call to you in the department store and they’re too hard to resist.   But then there they are in your closet and you are wondering what you were thinking.  What do these go with? When am I ever going to wear them?
Give those patterned heels purpose-
1)  For a no-brainer, pair them with neutrals.  Dress them up and take them out on the town for a date in a fancy pair of lace pants and a satin shell.
2)  Take them to a client meeting in a sheath dress in a matching tone.
3)  Wear them to a budget meeting with a fit and flare skirt and cardigan.
Leave the regret behind!  Put those heels to work!
