  7. OMGee! A HUGE congratulations. I’ve been following your blog for a while now from o-s and as an Aussie abroad I really look forward to your updates – they’re a little slice of home, and I love that so many of the labels are ones I know and love. Wonderful news – can we expect some wedding-related fashion posts on frocks and frou frou from now on? πŸ˜‰

  8. But of course. You visited his family, they loved you, it’s obviously meant to be. I think we’ve all been waiting a bit impatiently for him to get on with it!

    And I am particularly pleased that your readers do not spell congratulations with a ‘d’ LOL. Best wishes to you both as you begin planning your life together πŸ™‚

  9. Best wishes for a lovely happily ever after!! And congratulations to The Sophisticate, who clearly made an excellent choice.

  10. A super big congratulations. There is something so sweet and joyous about the first few weeks when you get engaged, so much news to share with friends and family, and when things slow down you look at each other and bask in the feeling that you must have been especially lucky to end up with this specific person.

  11. Your ring is perfect! That is exactly what I would have imagined for you. Congratulations what a wonderful journey to start. Thank you for letting us in in your “news”.

  12. Congrats Lilli! After being a long-time lurker I have to chip in to express my best wishes to you and The Sophisticate!! Very excited for the possibility of bridal blogs πŸ˜€
    xx

  13. Just wanted to add my congratulations to the long list! It’s a beautiful ring and I wish you both all possible happiness.

  14. Nothing like a ring to put an end to my serial lurking! I don’t think I’ve ever posted a comment here before, but have been reading your lovely blog for… wow, I reckon at least two years. Shame on me!

    But what an excellent occasion to begin – many congratulations to you both and I hope you have a very happy life together. And that is a gorgeous ring!

  15. Hurrah! I’ve been reading for a while too! Pleased as punch for you and excited to hear about the wedding! Again, hurrah!

  16. It seems all the lurkers are coming out of hiding when a sparkly ring is involved. πŸ˜€

    It’s my first time to comment, too, though I’ve been reading you blog for quite a while. So I guess it’s about time to say thank you for all the wonderful fashion inspiration – and for reminding me of the nice clothing in my wardrobe and that I can actually wear it instead of limiting myself to a jeans and t-shirt outfit day in and out. And for introducing me to several online shops like Eliza Parker, Dorothy Perkins and Asos.

    And first and foremost congratulations! Wish you all the best for the happily ever after!

  17. EEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKK!!!

    I’ve been reading your blog since 2009, and it was a great inspiration for me, I’m so looking forward to see your wedding dress :)))!

  19. Gorgeous ring! Congrats I’m sure you’ll be very happy. Glad to see that someone found their prince after a toad.

    Did you ever buy that dress that you were lusting after as a potential wedding dress?

  20. Oh my goodness, congratulations! I got married 6 months ago–planning your wedding is so much fun, but being married is EVEN BETTER. Much happiness to you both!

    I wish you both a lifetime of happiness xx

  26. Congrats from yet another long-time avid reader (but non-commenter). We’re all out now!

    With so many admirers of your style, you must really be feeling the pressure of getting “The Dress” just right? Don’t. You’d manage to look fabulous in a potato sack!
    (and he’d still marry you too)

    Thanks for all the inspiration. Look forward to plenty more……
    Best wishes x

  27. I don’t post often, but I’ve been following you for ages (makes me sound like a stalker! lol)
    Soooooooo happy for you! It’s a stunning ring! Congratulations!

  28. another lurker coming out of the woodwork to celebrate your engagement – thanks for all your inspiration and open-heartedness over the years

  29. Oh My Gosh, Congratulations! What a beautiful ring, the sophisticate obviously has great taste and it suits you to a T. I’ve been reading for a long time now, and I can’t wait to read the wedding edition of Frocks & Frou Frou.

  30. Congratulations, Lilli, I’m chuffed to bits for you! Your engagement ring is just perfect, and I have to ‘fess up that it actually made me gasp when I saw the photo. I’m a huge fan of your blog, and love your style (hey, you got a rather sniffy “I don’t do skirts girl” into wearing flirty, swingy, girlie skirts!) and I know you will look absolutely gorgeous in your wedding dress.

    Wishing you the very best of luck, and looking forward to pictures of The Frock. x
