Afternoon Tea

by jennine on May 8, 2009


Sometimes inspiration comes from the strangest places… like tea cups and cloudy days.
I’ve been coveting these rosy teacups for my entire stay here… maybe it’s the spring blossoms, the warm and not quite warm days… gosh isn’t it almost summer yet? Anyway, to continue on my draping kick that’s been going on these past few weeks, I reconfigured a skirt I hardly ever wear into a blouse, it turned out there was some grey tulle underneath the pink lace that I never noticed. Mmmm, grey tulle. I think I may have to get more of that.

The dog’s wondering what’s so special about the shoes… either that or he’s planning on eating them.

Your outfit matches your adorable dog and tea cups! Grey tulle is lovely.

Lovely tulle, and the shades of the top layer are gorgeous. I can imagine it was a fantastic skirt but sometimes the floaty and romantic look is more wearable on top, non?

Beautiful pup, too!

The reconfigured skirt is seriously genius! I love the draping, gray tulle-it adds such a lovely accent and texture!

What a fantastic modern-romantic look. Hope those shoes didn’t get eaten.

Your layering is beautiful. I love the embroidery on the skirt-blouse, it is so wonderfully romantic :) And I adore that tea cup - I collect tea sets, so this is pretty much my idea of perfect post haha.

Do you remember what brand those teacups were? My grandmother had similar china and I have been searching for ages where she got it…
BTW your layering is as delicate as those cups are. Love it!

I really like your outfit. The shoes are super cute…Are they patent? If so, “love”! Fashion is Life!

that lace is mindblurringly intoxicating or something. you get me confused in a nice way about what i like sometimes. as in, i think i want to go in one direction then i go in another. i guess i am talking about fall here. anyways, nice lace and outfit!
