... and that's just errors on the first page.
Yes, I know. I'm constantly crossing out and changing things in that Diary. It is, however, what got me started with trying to date every photo I found. Ever since I bought the book The Story of Diana (with that Fashion Diary in the back) in 1985, I've been trying to continue what they began.:)

I asked the question earlier about the pink jacket and I just wanted to thank you all for your answers! This is a fascinating thread. I am enjoying reading the dates and remembering the outfits!

You mentioned that she wore a lemon cotton suit with a blue polka dot blouse. I have always wondered where she got that combination...it looks cool together but it would not seem like it should?

Also, I noticed that she wore a couple of the same outfits again, right after each other. She was such a good dresser. I really miss her fashion, I wonder what she would be wearing now?

Ah ha! Someone else who is keeping a diary. Thanks for the July 3rd date Incas. I've been wondering about that one for a long time. (Just to make sure - it is the match where she is wearing the navy jacket with a lapel white/navy stripes & the white skirt with navy pinstripes???)

Canadiana, do you know if this is the same date a photo was taken of her with Charles and James Hewitt together? There was a fourth man, I believe it was Maj. Ferguson.

Yes, she was sitting with Al Fayed. I have a few photos which I haven't gotten around to save onto imageshack yet, so I can't post them. She was wearing a short narrow pinstripe skirt and navy pumps. Sometimes, she paired a long white pleated skirt with the jacket.

Great, thank you!

Here's one pic from that match. I like this one because it is I think the first picture they found of Diana & Dodi together.

Is that the match where she supposedly first met Dodi Fayed? Anybody have the story or photos on that? I think I've seen a photo (somewhere!) of her in that outfit, with Dodi in the background, and a caption to that effect.

yes that's the one she went to this wedding David Frost daughter I believe she ditched the hat and went to the polo match the press made a fuss cause when she had her hands behind her back they could see she had something written in pen on her hand they had a contest to figure out what she had no there one could make sense of it however few years later I read it was 'smile daddy' what it meant who knew. Yes later they were picture inside and James Hewitt was being introduced I believe to Charles not sure if it was first time they meant or just a re-introduction

Australia, April 3, 1983.
These photos show Diana having an animated, and obviously enjoyable, conversation with her old flatmate, Anne Bolton, who was then living in Australia.

Polo in New Zealand, April 23, 1983. This was the same day as the photocall with baby William. Note that Diana changed from red to white shoes before heading off to the polo field.




Both photos: Tim Graham

I really never did understand why she wore the red shoes with that outfit. I love looking at these pictures, but the red shoes always stick out.

May 25 1983 At the time I thought Diana looked stunning in these pics! 23 years later, I still do!

I always wondered that myself-but, as I recall, they had only just arrived in New Zealand a day or so before, and I would imagine, with all the clothes Diana had with her, it must have taken some effort to organize her wardrobe. Perhaps she just couldn't find the white shoes in time for the photo shoot? :)

Well actually it wasn't a day or two before. C&D arrived in New Zealand April 17 and this photocall/polo match wasn't until the 23 so almost a week later. I guess diana just thought the red shoes were more eye-catching???

The red shoes go with the red sweater she has around her shoulders. If she had the sweater on, it would have been perfect and perhaps, it was warmer than she thought.
