Tea for Two

a and j
Last weekend, we attended Modcloth's Mod Hatter Tea Party. The afternoon was filled with tea, sweets, fall fashion, and Bay Area bloggers. We couldn't decide what we liked more: the pastel tea cakes or the fancy frocks on display for the upcoming season. Thanks to Modcloth for putting on a tea party to remember!

Since we wanted to wear our Sunday best, Annalise and I chose two demure numbers for the afternoon. Both dresses were recent summer purchases, and we accessorized with vintage 1950s handbags and hair bows. Stay tuned for more tea party pictures tomorrow.

On Jenny:
Dress: 1960's vintage, Held Over
Handbag: 1950s Vintage, Alameda Flea Market
Hair Bow: 1950s Vintage

On Annalise:
Dress: 1960s vintage, North Carolina
Purse: 1950s Vintage
Tights: H&M
Hair Bow: Handmade
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
Listening to: I Promise You/ La Sera

Girls you are both TOO cute! I adore both of your dresses, they are so special and they fit you perfectly. This would have been so much fun! Wahhhh @ living on the other side of the world. x

SomeoneLikeYou :

Could you to be anymore sweeter or more beautiful? You both look like two beautiful vintage dolls, and a tea party is the exact place I would imagine you both to go to in these lovely outfits! ❤

The Thriftaholic (Leilani) :

These photos are ridiculously adorable, I like how both of your styles compliment each other while your personalities shine through too.

Love your shoe choices & the handbags, is it cold enough to wear tights there? Chicago is having a heat wave right now, it's in the 90s but will be down into the 50s next week!

So envious of a Modcloth tea party too, the SF blogger girls have so much fun. :)
