High Tea

i had a tea party thing going on at my friend's last weekend. there wasnt any particular dresscode, but i just felt like dressing up the part. i was particularly inspired by the outfits ladies in 50s wore (please correct me if i got the dates wrong.. apparently memorizing is not one of my key skills). full skirts, a-line shaped, and anything elegant.. I don't usually go for these sort of looks but I still do like dressing the part. made the photos look vintage-ish to suit the look ..

experimenting with cropping


i wish i could attend the brighspot market opening night later on today, but im having transport problems, so I'm gonna have to skip it :( i wish everyone who's going a great fun ! I'll probably visit the lovely booths the next few days.. I do hope my favorite brands won't run out of stock !

you look so cute! I really love the hat. And nice cropping work, it's always a good photo editing skill with fashion pics especially, good for featuring minute details...I definitely need more of that myself.

oooh hunnie i love your vintage 'double CC's' where did you ever come across those? when i was in NYC i did a bit of shopping at Hell's Kitchen's flea market and stumbled upon a few things there but i would never find anything here in calgary. i want your collection of purses hehe

misscindee said...

btw michelle, thx for the comment. it's encouraging. and i know what you mean the main reason i work out is for health as well. my diet is so healthy now too that i cant drink alcohol anymore. my body rejects it. which is good...and bad. lol*

Danielle said...
