I recently found out that the Queen of England has weights sewn into the hems of her skirts so they don’t blow up in the wind.  Totally thought of you.  Hee.

  1. Ha!

    Of course, now I’m picturing HRH the Queen having a Marilyn moment over a subway grating. Too funny.

  2. i thought of YOU on saturday when i DID have a marilyn moment over the subway grating. twas horrid. i think im going to have to sew weights into that dress, b/c it is rather cute, but also like a windsock!

    Do you know that Marks&Spencer are the purveyors of underwear to the House of Windsor ?

    With the amount of public appearances she puts in at outdoor venues such as horse races and polo matches, yeah ,I’m not surprised she has weights sewn in. I am not sure we need to see Queen Elizabeth’s undergarments in any event.

  4. joi: LOL! a thin chain in the hem should do the trick. i think you can get inexpensive chains on rolls cut to order in craft stores.

    beavis: yeah, i think i knew that, and yes, i’m not really interested in seeing the queen’s skivvies either.
