Today I’m going to an event I have never done before…High Tea. It’s to celebrate the birthday of a good friend. The invite said fascinator or hats strongly encouraged.
I suspected I knew what a fascinator was but had to Google it. I consulted my friend about whether to choose the hat or the outfit first and learned the hat always comes first and you build the outfit around it.
So I went online and there were so many options and price ranges. Some were outrageously expensive but so beautifully made. Real works of art, but definitely not in the budget. I found two affordable yet still quite lovely fascinators as possible candidates on Etsy. Here they are:
The search through my closet produced a couple of options for suitable outfits, but only one was feasible for a day where it will barely be barely above freezing.
It’s been a long time since I’ve dressed up and I’ve never worn a fancy hat, but I’m looking forward to it and to being with my friends. I can’t wait to see them all dressed up.
After the tea party, I’m headed to the house of one of those friends to watch playoff football. We’ve been joking how funny it’ll be for us to watch the game in all our finery.
I’ll let you know how it turns out tomorrow.
Be well my friends.
One thought on “Tea Party Prep”
ALWAYS choose the accessories first! If you find the perfect outfit you’ll never find the perfect accessories. But if you find the perfect accessories you will always find the perfect outfit 😉
