Good going Canadiana!:) You are very observant. I guess because, as you say, some of these outfits were also wore in Italy, that the poster got confused.

Yes, I remember the black & white outfit she wore with the flying saucer hat in Washington.:) The suit is similar to the black & white one posted above that she wore in British Columbia, but a little different. It was double breasted, with a black pleated skirt. She wore a black/white striped blouse underneath it.

Yes I agree, not pictures from the Italian tour.
I am always intrigued to see pictures of her the day she wore that cream dress w/ the long pearls - that was the day she fainted in Canada.

Thanx, I am VERY observant about Diana's fashions cause I have fashion diaries done on her from the day of the engagement Feb 24'81 to the day of her death. I list all official engagements but also weddings, memorial services, polo matches, press photocalls, funerals, airport arrivals & departures and so on. Only thing I don't really list is shopping or just any sighting cause that's really impossible to do. I have them in folders for each year and I have them all wrote up by hand. Right now it's in a total mess cause I have found out new info on ebay or just online so it really needs to be done over which takes quite alot of time which I can't seem to find lately. So I can spot outfits etc really well.
That black & white outfit with the flying saucer hat which btw was dubbed 'the uniform' by the press she worn it so often well she worn it 11 times that I am aware off. She's worn it to Washington, Austria, Japan, West Germany & Canada for tours but the rest of the time in the U.K. But she's worn suits more then that her all time favorite it seemed which she worn 22 times was a v-neck navy (or black as sometimes it seem to photographed bk) with large ball shape brass military style buttons and a grey pinstriped skirt. Do you know which one I mean??? She mainly worn it from early 1987 to late 1992. so good use for that suit wasn't it????:D

Canadiana -

We will welcome your expertise on the fashion occasions!

I have also tried to keep a diary by year of Diana's life, but as you have implied, I'll never be "done" with it because new info (thanks to the web and new books) comes out from time to time.

Me three!! Over the years, I've also been keeping track of Diana's engagements. And here I thought I was the only one with this strange obsession!;)

Yes, I know which one you mean - it was designed by YSL of Paris. I always liked that suit. Fergie also had a version of it (although the collar was cut slightly different). I was waiting for them to both turn up at the same event wearing their identical outfits.:)

Yes Fergie did wear a similiar suit in fact for a while they were wearing similiar style clothes.
Do you all have the Debrett's Fashion Guide that's really excellent they updated it in softcover couple years later wish they had again. Only thing I hated about it is they would show the same suit for different years more then once unless she did something different to it what was the point. Better to show something new.
I got into doing this when I bought a book that had it done so I decided to continue on never checking how accurate what they had done when I did found alot more engagements and some wrong dates. I thought I had done a good job which for the most part i did. However last year I bought hundreds & hundreds of British np clippings from 1981-1987 probably 300-400 for each year and especially for 1981 found I had some things wrong with regards to dates like for polo matches (which she went alot too pre-wedding) especially. Tours can be difficult cause you can't always get the correct date to go with the correct outfit. I think I've done pretty well cause of the newspaper articles I mean most will say diana attended such an engagement YESTERDAY so no doubts there about the dates. I do enjoy it immensely and love trying to figure out engagements etc. I'm really itching to start writing it all over but can't seem to find the time. I have done so much on floppy disk but to be honest already I need to do that over and while it looks so professional printed off if I have to add or change something I really need to print it all over again better to do it just on loose leaf paper and put in a folder. So I write it in blue pen, the actual engagment in red, then again the outfit in blue and I also list jewelry everything really except rings plus accessories then the designer (in red pen).
I've VERY organized in case you didn't pick up on that. LOL
