Blog news

A few things have been going on the last couple of days here on the blog. Maybe you noticed it. Maybe you didn't. For almost 8 years I have run this blog with great pride and commitment. I have always sworn that the blog would be my first priority and not represent it on any social media platform. Nevertheless, I changed my mind. At least just a little bit. Which is why Style of Mary now got its very own Pinterest account, here. Can't say if I will join any other media in the future but you'll never know. You are very much welcome to join me. The account is meant as a place of inspiration. Now and then new boards will be added and others deleted. All to match season, trend and what interest you the most. This is also why I'd love to get in touch with you -for many new ideas. Take a look around and let me know what else you need. 

I created a button for all this. You find it at the bottom of the site, right next to my very new 'contact button'. This allow you to get in contact with me with just one click. Now it is also possible for you to subscribe to a newsletter. So each time a new post is published, you'll know right way. And of course you are still able to write comments as usual. It is all new to you and me but I hope you will embrace all these new features with an open mind.

100 years with Finland

Wednesday, December 6th

It was on occasion of Finland's 100 years of independence that the Crown Princess attended a gala at Molthes Palace in Copenhagen on Wednesday. On December 6th 2017 it is exactly 100 years ago Finland became an independent nation and that was about to be celebrated with the Crown Princess as guest of honor. This very special occasion has been celebrated more than once during the year under the theme 'yhdessä' that means 'together' in Finnish. A simple, clear and strong theme in my opinion. At the arrival she was kindly welcomed by Consul General Fritz Schur, whom she also enjoyed a conversation with during the evening. The Crown Princess really seemed to feel comfortable in everyone's company and vice versa.

Congratulations to Finland on behalf of their anniversary.

I have already heard much about her outfit -good and bad. Personally, I have only good things to say. Think it is a long time since we have seen her dazzle as much as she did at the gala. A shiny star on a clear sky. She surpassed everyone else in her new black embellished dress. I have still not been able to figure out where it is from or who created it. Any ideas? Had several designers in mind but non of them seems to be the one I'm looking for. Could it be custom made and then the reason why I can't find it? Nevertheless, Mary embraced the magnificent look by wearing matching diamond earrings, two large brooches and a rings. A few pictures show that she carried a small black box clutch and possibly black satin pumps from Prada. Not only the dress reminds me of a passioned flamingo dancer; the hairstyles do too. A beautiful bun decorated by a braid. This is in no doubt one of my absolutely favourite outfits the past year.

Visiting Kræftværket

Tuesday, December 5th

On Tuesday the Crown Princess visited Kræftværket, hereat Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen. Kræftværket offer room for young people between 15-29, who is in treatment for cancer at Rigshospitalet, here & here. Here they can meet with peers in the same situation as themselves, join activities which is adapted to their age and enjoy the company of others. During the visit, which was not part of her official calendar, she took plenty of time talking to each and everyone. With great sympathy she listened to everything she was told. The Crown Princess also got a chance to talk to young ambassadors and other volunteers from Kræftværket.

Though it was an unofficial visit, we have quite many pictures. These show that Mary was wearing a reused black Hugo Boss coat at the arrival, matching slim trousers and a brand new bright red blouse. Heaven quickly identified the new blouse as Iris & Ink. This designer also crossed my mind but Heaven got it way before I did. Actually the blouse is a cashmere sweater featuring the most lovely sleeves. Unfortunately, non of the pictures show which pair of shoes she had chosen to wear. But I got a glimpse of her old leather bag from Bottega Veneta. Big enough to carry anything and everything. I always loved its shaped and braided textures. A few years ago I received my very own Veneta wallet as a gift from a dear friend. I have used it every day since.
