Time for Tea, Part One

Earlier this year, I went to a tea party to bid a dear friend farewell as she left us to return home to the U.K. -- tho' luckily she plans to come back later this year, so the bon voyage party wasn't totally sad.

This was a proper high tea at a frou-frou restaurant filled with old-fashioned china & such. To me, that calls for a fancy outfit & a hat, of course. This hat was a gift from a friend & features a real vole skull. I trimmed it with more ribbons & feathers.

What I'm wearing:
Black & silver pinstripe jacket, custom-made by Original Sin Designs | Black jeweled T-shirt, NY & Company | Black knit skirt, Target | Black tights, Calvin Klein | Tall black boots, Clarks | "London" necklace, Claire's | Black & white stripey bead earrings, Kohl's | Black hat with skull, feathers, & ribbons, gift from Ghislaine

This wasn't the only tea party I went to this year, so watch for another one with a different hat, coming soon.

Have you gone to a fancy high tea? Did you wear a hat or otherwise dress up?
