I had the most divine High Tea experience recently. It was all whimsical decor, delightful dainties to nibble on, flavoursome tea to sip and the best part, chatting the afternoon away with my Gorgeous Girls.
But, what did I wear? Nice of you to ask! Thank you, you’re so sweet.
What I wore to High Tea was a gorgeous TL Wood pinstriped coat (thrifted from the Red Cross) over a Veronika Maine blue dress (more than $100 off RRP), with Leona Edmiston Pins patterned tights in blue (purchased from the Leona Vintage store in Balmain). I accessorised with my buttercream Awkward! Alannah Hill lady bag (a birthday gift from the Welshman and Boyo a few years ago), a vintage 40s shearling collar from The Vintage Shop in Sydney (just couldn’t resist it), Mimco lavender and pearl bow earrings (on sale of course) and a Zara black and leopard woollen hat (goodness, I think I broke my own rule and paid retail!).
It was too cold to wear anything other than my favourite Seed Femme ankle boots (on sale baby!) as you can hide a pair of socks in them for warm tootsies. I wore an Estee Lauder pink lipstick called Crystal Baby, which was part of my fab DJs gift with purchase.
How did I feel in what I wore to High Tea? I felt girlishly pretty and stylishly ladylike and thankfully, I felt warm!
When I was getting dressed, I did my customary dash downstairs to ask the Welshman and Boyo their opinion. I asked if it was too much. The Welshman replied “It would be for normal people”. I’m choosing to take that as a compliment! They’re both not a fan of the neck fur, but I had to ignore their advice in the interests of being warm.
