    2. I think.this is the folk costume for the island they're on. Folklore stuff but looks oldish for sure. It's a tradition

    3. I wondered that myself, is it the national Swedish dress maybe?

    4. That's a swedish national (folk) costume. Don't get me wrong but... I gather you aren't from Europe. Here in Europe basically all the nations have their national costume or even a lot of kinds of folk attires, every bigger or smaller region. In Hungary, for example, there were 4 very big regions where folk costumes had slightly similar features within each region and within each region there were smaller areas (a couple of dozens altogether) where the main costume features were quite the same (type and length of the skirt, type of headdress, type and number of underskirts, cut, sleeves, and other characteristics of the top part - the blouse - etc. and the kind of embroidery used). Within a smaller area typically every village had it's own kind of embroidery and other smaller variations. The clothing pieces varied even with the age and the different phases of the marital status. And that is only one country in Europe, though the documented folk heritage is extremely vast there compared to any other country of Europe (or of other continents for that matter).
      These costumes in Europe have a tradition going back 1000+, 2000+ years, as far as we currently know it. And for a lot of people still mean quite something. And then there is Japan and China where some forms of folk attires date as back as 1000, 2000 years BC. I guess you would never ask why the japanese emperor wears a bath robe and a flip-flop at a new year's day event :)

    5. Very informative reply. I am European but haven't lived there for 60 years. I am 80 years old now, my parents were working-class poor, we never had a camera, never travelled anywhere, were not aware of other countries' customs, etc. I am not aware that/if there is a national, or even regional, costume in my own country.

    6. ...and that's exactly why I started with "don't get me wrong", 'cause we know nothing about each other neither are supposed to know beforehand any of the kind of things you just told me about your life. I never intended to be patronizing, I just wished to be what you say: informative. With some witty tone mixed in. My apologies if I hurt you.

    7. ZL, You did not hurt me in the least. I hope I wasn't offensive with my question, I could have phrased it otherwise.

  7. lizzie: They don't look like nuns. It's the costume for the landscape of Oland and when you are married you have that kerchief on your head. Crown Princess Victoria and Queen Silvia always wear them on Victoria Day.

    1. Madeleine is married, so how come she's not wearing the headdress?

  8. As for the ladies' fashion, I love when they wear national costumes. Princess Madeleine's shirt is not very flattering, I think this skirt asks for a more fitted blouse but she looks beautiful, as she does normally :) Isn't her hair lighter than before, like with blonde hues or is it just the lights on the photos...?
    Sofia Hellquist's dress is too short, a very bad fit for her, the ruffles on the hem just make the whole thing even messier and her shoes are plain ugly. Also, the shoelaces or whatever those are called are too tight around her ankles. Apparently she doesn't have too much style (so far) and even less her OWN style but she did so much better than this, not once but many times. I have no clue what happened here, the whole look is a big NO.

  10. I love the traditional clothes ! Interesting fact that it's only the married ladies who wear the white headscarf, having seen photos of Sofia in the traditional dress without the headscarf prior to her wedding.
    Not too keen on the straps on Sofia's shoes, they seem to cut her ankles off. Princess Estelle is just adorable ! Everyone looks like they're having an enjoyable day!

  13. sofia always looks good, infact you wouldnt know she just gave birth a few months ago, she get attacked for her past, while it was not the right choice, she was a teenage, but most importantly is that her husband adores her and she does her work very well!!

    1. Dear Sue, please don't feel offended but your comment contains a series of plain factual errors. First, she doesn't always look good. Sometimes she does, sometimes she doesn't, just like any human being on this planet called Earth. Second, no one mentioned anything related to her (post baby) body. Really, I just went through the comments and there is not a word about her being fat or chubby or whatever. Third, she does not get "attacked" for her past, most of the people here just told that her dress and the shoes just aren't flattering - so did I. Fourth, yes, she indeed did things in her past that are more than questionable and she did those things BEGINNING FROM the time when she was a teenager AND she continued doing those things during most of her time up until the moment she wound up with her now husband. Fifth, why exactly is "most important", fashionwise (since this is a fashion blog) that her husband adores her? As for the work she does, I'd rather refrain from any comment, since we have no proof whatsoever either to confirm or disprove that, other than a couple of photos taken at the few engagements she had since her wedding and I have expressed here several times my argument on how it is the silliest thing to draw conclusions based on photos.
      Lastly, I agree some opinions just shouldn't be expressed here (what you call "attacking"), because it's just not the place to do that. Please remember however everyone here is entitled to his/her own opinions, hopefully formed based on facts, consideration and common sense - even if those opinions doesn't necessarily match yours. Your unconditional love for the swedish royal family and Sofia is just one of those opinions, not the absolute and irrefutable truth.
      With my kindest wishes, ZL
