It’s mere hours until the Royal Wedding.  I have to say I am getting excited. The burning question in everyone’s mind and including mine is if Sarah Burton will be designer de choix after all. If so, how befitting of a tribute to Alexander McQueen. Since the dress is top secret, I thought to share some princess worthy items I found sleuthing around the web and in honor of Kate Middleton’s engagement ring colors – sapphire and diamonds I thought to do a mini round-up to match. Let me know what you think in the comments box.

I love how the dress accentuates the waist and cinches it like a wasp. Teeny at the waist and then full at the bottom only to reveal all that blue pattern. It’s perfection for the right height. At 5’2, I doubt I could carry such a dress gracefully but it’s a clothing wonder.

Now onto the shoes. I was searching for some super duper expensive shoes on-line for a twitter friend. When I happened upon these. I have to say being Tanzanian, I have got a thing for Tanzanites more so than sapphires. These Stuart Weitzman show-stopping sparklers are serious foot candy priced at $2 million. They remind me of a cocktail. The ingredients of this sparkling delight include: shimmery silver leather, 185 carats of Tanzanite and 28 carats of diamonds with a pear pendant elegantly cascading around the ankle. Drool away! {Ooh, and on a side note: One day I will have to show you the whopping, natural, deep corn-flower blue Tanzanite that mom gave me. It was designed by my dad just for her almost 30 years ago. Romantic, na? Seriously, every time I wear that ring when I am off meeting with my gem suppliers; I think they are plotting a mini-heist of the ring.  It’s that beautiful. More on this soon.}

Now onto jewels. If you have bejeweled feet and a paperweight of an engagement ring. I reckon it would be a wise idea to keep the rest of the accessorizing to a minimum. However, if you are a Princess-to-be I doubt that there too many silly rules as to how much jewels to wear or not to wear. I mean with the crown jewels being at your disposal and all. Since I am a bit practical about things such as where and when to wear your cocktail engagement ring and this is advice I often impart with my clients. I’d say if you are princess and do not want to wear your mega expensive and sentimental (hello? Diana) ring everywhere as you traipse the globe, these dazzlers are would do just fine as well and it sure would tell us you are a practical princess!

Being a night owl extraordinaire I have no worries of being up to watch the nuptials. I barely watch any telly so this will be a worthwhile excursion, albeit at the wee hours of the morning. It sure will be a heck of a wedding, so Cheers to Kate and Wills!

And by the way, all this talk of the wedding has had me really missing London. More on my adventures there coming up soon.
