To a Tea or Two


Considering the amount of tea I drink combined with the fact that I live in the capital of tea-land, it's some what shocking that I've never been for a proper afternoon tea in town before. So, I made a date to take a friend to Sanderson's famous Mad Hatter Afternoon as an engagement gift.  About a week before the day, I got invited to another, champagne tea at the Sanctum Hotel in Soho - from nought to two in one day, what are the odds?
So, I spent my Saturday sprinting from one posh hotel to another - oh, how difficult life is!


Both were so great, but the Mad Hatter's Tea was just fantastically weird and wonderful. The pictures here don't even begin to give it justice. I highly recommend it to anyone who's in town.


In other news: I wore my new Maitland Dress out for the occasion, and I'm just in love with it. It's so comfy to wear. Just a couple of things to clairfy about it, as there seems to be some confusion in the reviews: the dress does have a zipper, though I find mine (a small) is roomy enough that I can pull it on over my head. Also, the slip is not detachable from the crochet, alas. I'll do a proper review soon, but needless to say that I loved it enough to buy it at full price, eek.

Looks like a great way to spend the afternoon. Love the dress!
