I don't want to look like a princess!

Today we are making a start on getting stuff together for our upcoming holiday. It should be easy to select a few clothes, preferably ones that can be combined in different ways and that are suitable for a warm weather destination. But before I pack I'm making sure I try on the summer dresses I haven't worn for the past two years (the presence of Pup last year precluded the wearing of any summer dresses or skirts). I don't want to find that something I previously looked good in now makes me look fat and frumpy!
A recent photo shows princesses Beatrice and Eugenie appearing to look daggers at the nape of Kate’s swan-like neck as she glides effortlessly ahead. Sarah Vine knows how they feel.

That's a very funny article. My husband has good hooked on the spoof show (I think it's Channel 5) called 'The Windsors'. You just can't view the royals the same after watching that.

It just goes to show, no matter how much money you have, you need to know how to dress appropriately to suit your figure and they don't seem to do that!

@Fleura Sadly they inherited more than just the red hair from their mum.

Yes, it is wiser to check in advance.

I don't want to get there and then think that I can't wear the things I've brought!

They are not exactly icons of fashion now are they! I am sure whatever you wear will be suitable and appropriate!

They do seem to be a bit of a fashion disaster area! It just goes to show that money can't buy style!

Cool photos of the princesses. I'm sure you will find some dresses that are perfect for you. I have to try on dresses before we go away because I never wear them at home...

I don't own a dress any more but I do have a couple of skirts. There are some lovely summer dresses around.
