anyone have any of their sheitels? you happy with it?September 14, 2011 5:23 pm at 5:23 pm #810420
I thought with this thread’s title that it would be about proper etiquette when meeting Queen Elizabeth. Truly.September 14, 2011 5:28 pm at 5:28 pm #810421
so as not to disappoint all those entering here in the same boat as ayc:
The colour of Her Majesty’s clothes is never made known in advance, so don’t be tempted to telephone the Household before an event to make sure that you aren’t wearing the same colour or that your choice of outfit with clash with The Queen’s.
Morning dress for men consists of a grey or black morning coat with a grey or yellow waistcoat and striped grey trousers. A top hat should be worn, and grey or yellow gloves (matching your waistcoat of course!) should be carried. Ladies are in this case expected to wear smart day dress: a suit or dress with hat and gloves, high heels, and a handbag to complete the outfit. Lounge suits are just plain business suits and are now the form for the majority of occasions; again, smart day dress is the correct outfit for ladies. Black tie calls for dinner jackets to be worn with a smart bow tie. Ladies should wear an evening or cocktail dress (it is best not to wear black, which is really only appropriate only when the Court is in mourning). Finally, white tie involves an evening tail coat with white bow tie and waistcoat for men and long evening dresses with long gloves and best jewellery including tiaras for the ladies. Orders and decorations are worn by everyone entitled to do so, though it is important not to wear the collar of an order (these never appear after sunset).September 14, 2011 5:30 pm at 5:30 pm #810422shmoelMember

Thank you for the laughs!September 14, 2011 5:41 pm at 5:41 pm #810424
do you remember this:
But he forged on with his speech anyway, unaware of the stares he was getting from across the room and the tiniest, but the most uncomfortable smile coming across her Majesty’s face.September 14, 2011 5:42 pm at 5:42 pm #810425

Nope, sorrySeptember 14, 2011 6:10 pm at 6:10 pm #810433anonymrsParticipant
adorable, to get this thread back on track…..
i had a royal when i first got married, and i loved it! it held a curl very well, unlike my sheitel now, which needs to be redone every two weeks, not that i do it every two weeks….(that might also have s/t to do with the person i take it to though) the hair felt very soft, and it didnt really know or tangle, unless it was ready for another washing. i liked that it was multi directional, cuz then i could play around a little.September 14, 2011 6:11 pm at 6:11 pm #810434Fast ForwardMember
Shmoel, the proper sheitel for greeting the queen is one that does not fall off while curtseying :).September 14, 2011 6:13 pm at 6:13 pm #810435

“see I only got one reply.”
Whereas before your retitled title, you got none (excluding mine).
Perhaps consider the possibility that the readership here in the CR is more knowledgeable about the royals who ARE the heads and not that go ON the heads?September 18, 2011 2:12 am at 2:12 am #810440miriam613Member
