Vintage Tea

As a lover of things vintage and especially a lover for tea, an afternoon eating sandwiches and cake with one of my favourites, Sophia seemed like the perfect opportunity to snap some photos of a new dress I was kindly sent from Charmeuse Couture.

After eating a section of sandwiches, a wedge of cake and half a scone I am glad I was sent the larger version of this pretty dress! Although I do wish I had opted for medium because it was a little big on me! However, the dress itself is beautiful. It’s a 2 in 1 combo with a knitted top and pleated skirt and is a wonderful autumn/winter outfit. It’s beautifully crafted, clearly considering every detail with a sweet lace trimming on the collar and a vintage style brooch creating a real elegance to the simplistic but sweet design. The knitted top is snuggly warm and combined with the A-line skirt it’s a fab little number for visiting friends for afternoon tea!

I added my beautiful hand made hat, created by Nita Sao and a pair of cute Hush Puppies heels.  I really adore this look as it makes me feel that I’ve made an extra effort. Small things like the brooch make a difference to the outfit. Charmeuse Couture clearly put a lot of care into their designs and style. They are the perfect online shop for quality vintage style without the typical hefty price tag.

Have a look at their stunning dresses and you are bound to find something for you… There’s a selection that is suited for going to weddings, autumn style and many choices ready for spring (seems too long along away doesn’t it?). If dresses aren’t for you, they have gorgeous outwear too (I want them. All of them.)

I had a lovely time with Sophia having our afternoon tea and snapping a few photos in the slightly damp park! I am adoring the autumn leaves 🙂

    What a cute dress! I love how the collar peaks out, and the hat is just adorable as well! It’s nice to go back to vintage styles, especially with all the athleisure popping up now!
