Most people buy a dress for a specific occasion. I buy a dress and then search for an excuse to wear the dress.
This dress is going to High Tea and it’s taking me along for the ride.
I scored this beauty on a massively good thrifting day along with two other dresses and quite a few other secondhand treasures. The thrifting Gods were with me that day my friends.
It is an ABS dress by Allen Schwartz which apparently retails for around $350-$450.
I paid…a whole lot less than that!
There are no fabric description tags however it feels like silk and the neckline and lower bust are trimmed with mini faux pearls.
There was a dry-cleaning tag attached to this and it is in immaculate condition.
In this heat am enjoying the fact that it is loose and yet shapely. A rarity in dresses.
I’m busy searching for the very best place for high tea for this dress.
I am a sucker for high tea dresses/outfits and have amassed quite the collection should I suddenly be faced with an intensive week of non-stop high tea emergencies. You know how that goes.
Outfit Ideas For High Tea
I think this would have been the perfect outfit to wear to the Queen’s Plate.
Shame I found it the week after the Queen’s Plate.
I’ve never attended that particular horse race before but I have gone to horse races while visiting Prince Edward Island and bet a few times.
I’m not a gambler so this it very out of character for me. I always feel there is something else I could have done (thrifting, obviously) with that $10 rather than gamble it away.
Here I am making my totally random selection based on the name of the horse. Yes, I’m
impulsive scientific like that.
And winning! No, not a million bucks, I think it was $20. Doesn’t take much to get me excited.
Yes, that is my natural hair colour. Well, aside from the purple bits.
Are you a gambler? Have you been to a horse race? Did you win anything?
When was the last time you bought an outfit and then had to figure out somewhere to wear it? Or am I the only crazy doing that?
