2016 Holiday Tea

This year’s holiday team had a fairly wide open theme, and since I was tired and stressed, and I just wasn’t in a mood for corsets or stays, I decided to go 20s. I have exactly one 20s dress (I need more!!) but I had bought a vintagey sweater and modified the belt to closer resemble the photo of 20s sweater jackets I had. Added a new hat from Etsy, and some Forever 21 glasses (thanks for the find, Judy!) that resemble ones worn by Miss Fisher, and my new Miss L Fire shoes that sorta go. I also made use of a brooch and a 20sish necklace from Sweet Romance. Everything was slightly not matchy, but I liked the end look. And the tea was really fun! It was at Tea on the Tiber at Ellicott City. The food was delicious (those cinnamon scones!!) and the company was great as always!

Here’s the look I was going for – funny, I didn’t realize the lady in the brown sweater was wearing a pink dress with black trim! :-)

Oh, and I wore my great-grandmother’s watch from the nineteens:

Kristin brought her sweet new baby and hubby as well! It was little E’s first costume event! At least outside the womb!
