Thanks to The Countess of Wessex for getting her #GlassesOn & hosting our ‘Vision for the Commonwealth’ event at St James’s Palace [email protected]
The Countess of Wessex recently hosted an event for Vision for Commonwealth at St. James Palace. Sophie meet with and listened to Commonwealth Leaders on the need to identify eye problems early in children. Eye health is a very important cause for the Countess, who has been a champion of this cause for years.

Sophie chose the Etro ‘Floral stretch-silk crêpe midi dress’, retailing for £985. At first we thought this dress looked very much like an Oscar de la Renta design, one of the Countess’ favourite, and were quite surprised to find this very pretty feminine dress from Etro. The floral dress has a rounded neckline, three-quarter length ruched sleeves, a fitted waistline, and gradually flared skirt to a midi length. This is a beautiful style of dress on Sophie.

Whilst the florals on the product photo do not line up in exactly the same place as on Sophie’s dress, this is the Countess’ dress. A floral fabric when cut and sewn into any garment will have the flowers sitting at different points, making each dress look slightly different and unique. The dress is made in Italy from a mix of silk/elastane and is partially lined. You can purchase the dress here and here. The print of this dress also comes in a longer sleeve, crossover wrap style. Purchase here.

With love this dress on Sophie, though we would also love to see it paired with her pale pink suede pumps. The Countess’ classic hairstyle and minimal jewellery created an elegant look. Sophie’s wardrobe this week has been incredibly strong and we love all the new pieces that she has added her wardrobe this year.
