Danish Diadems

The "purely frivolous and perfectly harmless" blog The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor, a site dedicated to "all things stylish and royal," regularly observes a mirco-holiday called Tiara Thursdays, and during yesterday's celebration they examined Princess Marie of Denmark's "signature diadem," a pretty "diamond floral tiara" whose name "doesn't tell you ... that it does have a royal history before Marie enters the picture, and [that] it's not even really 'Marie's' (as far as we know)." Whaaat. So, if you're feeling frivolous and harmless, and might enjoy looking at pictures of — or reading short stories about — crowns, jewels, and impressively smooth hairstyles, or harmlessly and frivolously considering what your own signature crown might look like when you become queen of the world and/or universe and underworld, it is a pleasant read.

OMG TIARA PORN! I will now spend the rest of the day scheming to marry a royal, or else become a master thief.

@SarahDances Marry a royal and steal everyone else's tiaras?

SarahDances

@smidge I like the way you think.

Emby

Hrmmm. I am trying to think of some dude equivalent to this.

I did spend about 10 minutes looking at cool outback hats in a shop in Sedona last week, before ultimately deciding not to buy anything. Maybe that's close.

I was supposed to get work done today.

Also, this seems as good a place as any to ask: The Queen of Cups is holding a giant gilded reproductive tract with grabby ovaries, right?

@TheLetterL The Queen of Diva Cups?

Danish royalty get to wear an elephant necklace all the time?? My 7th grade self would be scheming to marry a Danish prince, or hoping I was adopted from the royal family, or something. Man I liked elephants a lot back then.

It is probably for the best that my work blocks all the images on this blog, but I think we all know how I'll be spending (a large chunk or possibly all of) tomorrow.

Inconceivable!

The blog post ends with the question: "Where does this rank on your list of favorite floral tiaras?"

Yes please.

Love the mini! I saw this on display this past summer and immediately regretted not spending more time on my jewel thief skills.

My favorite bit of wisdom from Downton Abbey: It's always better to be safe than sorry; Bring the extra tiara.

"The floral tiara is the only tiara from the royal family Marie has access to, but it is apparently a loan and not her own property."

Oooo, I sense some dishy royal gossip here...
