Wallis Simpson

It has been a long while since my last post. Nobody ever told me how intense planning a wedding could be ;) For the record, my wedding was like a fairy tale dream! While honeymooning in Turks and Caicos I read "The Shadow Queen" by Rebecca Dean. It is a fantastic book about the life of Wallis Simpson. If you don't know anything about Wallis Simpson she was an American socialite whose third husband, Prince Edward, Duke of Windsor, formerly King Edward VIII of the United Kingdom and the Dominions, abdicated his throne to marry her. Her story is fascinating but what is more fascinating was her willingness to break the mold in fashion in her circle. For instance she designed her first wedding gown in white velvet, a fabric that was not widely used during that time or at all. Not to mention she was muse to Elsa Schiaparelli need I say more? ;)
