Celebrating the Jubilee

I often wonder what it would be like to be a member of the royal family, even if it were for a day.  So imagine living the life that Queen Elizabeth has...this weekend celebrating 60 years (!) as the head of the British monarchy.  We probably see her as someone like our grandma but with loads more money and jewels (including tiaras fit for every occassion), but in her younger years she used to be (kind of) stylish.

Before the pill box hats, pastel coat dresses and monotone skirt suits, the Queen even appeared that she wasn't afraid to take a style risk or two.  The proof?   A picture of a much younger queen sporting a one shoulder rose gold embossed evening gown:

People all over the world are celebrating Queen Elizabeth's 60 years of reign, but especially in Britian with "English" style celebrations such as horse races, high teas and a flotilla of 1000 yachts up the River Thames.

While that all sounds like fun, these Swarovski crystal bedazzled Union Jack wedge heels by Aruna Seth would make any Jubilee celebration even more festive.  Not only a keepsake but a rare one at that - only 10 pairs of these $4,700 shoes were made.
