Hear ye, hear ye! Do we have a regal issue for you! How could we not? At a time of year when parties and barbeques are already plentiful, the Queen’s Jubilee is the ultimate opportunity to put on your glad rags, style your hair, rouge those lips and stick on ABBA’s “Dancing Queen”!
Our dear Queen Elizabeth II may not strike you as a fashion icon, but rest assured, this lady knows style. Looking back over her reign, Queen Elizabeth has encapsulated style and class and the British public have looked on with admiration. We look at her 60 years of style on page 12.
Are you wondering how to celebrate? Why not host a good old British get together and host a Diamond Jubilee party with a difference. Chloe Carter shows us how on page 37!
So you have a party planned, but what to wear? Aya Smith explains how vintage party pieces can add timeless elegance to your style on page 22. I love her style fit for a queen.
Just because you’re going to have a right royal knees up, it does not mean you have to spend a royal mint! This issue we welcome A Thrifty Mrs to our team, star of the popular ‘SuperScrimpers’ TV show, with a waste not want not approach. Not only does she show you how to maintain beautiful skin throughout the summer months, but reveals simple ideas of how to throw a party without the regal price tag!
Scones of scones? However you pronounce it, Charlotte of Restoration Cake shows how to bake scones that are fit for a queen… but I believe these are far too nice to reserve just for special occasions!
If you haven’t already, this issue would be a great time to subscribe. Not only do you save lots of money off the cover price, but if you’re quick, you could receive a beautiful Union Jack make-up bag from Jan Constantine worth £33.50 (while stocks last). I think I might subscribe! ;o)
Enjoy your celebrations and even if you’re not British, why not throw a party anyway… any excuse! The rest of this issue is packed with lots of vintage goodness, perfect reading for a warm evening in the garden.
Signing out with a royal wave, my dear loyal readers, until next issue!
