Springtime Tea

To make a very long story short, a huge array of plans went south over the weekend, including my birthday plans. Complications with headaches and last minute necessary events happened and ultimately Patrick rescheduled my birthday celebrations.  But the one thing that did go very well was a small tea hosted by Solanah of Vixen Vintage.  She baked a few of us gals delicious treats and brewed tea as we enjoyed a peaceful afternoon of chatting and kitties.  The afternoon was so much of a delight, I forgot to take pictures of the afternoon, except my outfit!

A few days prior to the tea I picked up these fabulous Lucite handles at Antique Alley and promptly went home, pulled out some barkcloth I had also purchased at the Alley ages ago, and whipped together a purse!  And I couldn’t resist bringing it to the tea, so I revolved this whole outfit around it.

What I love so much about the fabric is that it allows me to incorporate brown (a color I have a lot of) as a spring color, which I did with this glorious 40s jacket.

Outfit
Earrings: Expo
Jacket: Puttin’ On The Ritz (which sadly suffered from a fire and closed-their salvageable inventory went to FabGabs)
Sweater & Gloves: Don’t recall
Deer Brooch: Thrifted
Purse: Made by me! Which items found at Antique Alley
Skirt: Coburg Antique Fair
Stockings: Retro Seams – Coffee, What Katie Did
Shoes: Aerosoles by way of Buffalo Exchange

  1. I’m glad you celebrate your birthday…even though your plans were somewhat diminished from your original plan. Your outfit has such a peaceful, elegant look to it, the colours are so soft and your bag brings all the colours together so nicely.
    You find the best novelty jewellery, and this sweet deer brooch is no exception. It is just so dainty!
    Happy Birthday! xx Shauna

  2. Oh sweetie, I’m really sorry that your birthday didn’t go quite as planned. I’ve had a few of those over the years, too. I hope nothing too serious is wrong – I’m always here if you need someone to talk to.

    Wonderful outfit – that purse is so very pretty and cheerful, and I just love the overall colour palette at work here.

  3. Gorgeous purse, the fabric is great. I hope you have a lovely re-scheduled birthday weekend, sometimes the best plans are those that get delayed a little xx
