TEA FOR TWO

This weekend is the weekend me and Chris celebrated our anniversary (as we can't actually remember when or how long we have been together) and decided to go to Saffron Waldon. I've never been to Saffron Waldon before and its the most beautiful little market town. All the buildings are so cute, the town centre is surrounded by green areas and theres even a market (that sold the most amazing veggie pastry and cake). What we really visited Saffron Waldon for (other than the nice walk and charity shops where I picked up another copy of Animal Farm) was to have afternoon tea at Kims.



It was such a nice day and after choosing a seat in the sun OUTSIDE we stripped off our coats to pick our lunch. They had like 30 teas (I ended up picking "Iron goddess of Mercury"- a lovely Chinese oologn tea) and paired with a scone and clotted cream and jam I was in heaven. I'm glad Chris fancied coffee as I only half heatedly offered to share my tea with him.


I'm not going to lie, that scone was the best thing I've ate in months- no other scone comes close. 



I felt like I had the perfect dress for the day (I was aiming for sophisticated and sexy) and after finally getting my hands of the Regina Doll dress from Collectiff I knew it was the one. I was looking for  one in black for months after Georgina (from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust) raved about it and I can see why.






Dress: Collectiff (found on eBay)
Bag: River Island
Shoes: Linzi

I'll be 100% honest this dress does not like my boobs! The material kept slipping on my bra so I will have to rethink the underwear next time but as it was black I was quite happy to flash a little. Plus I don't think it alters the silhouette of the dress too much. It's sold out in black, but it's still available in red in the flared style (as well as this awesome cherry print) and as a fitted pencil style.

I paired it with flats for girlyness and my favourite jewellery. As I was going out for tea my new hair clip form Drown Soda seemed appropriate (it also comes in plain red). I love it, its on a heavy duty clip so didn't slip all day, and is the perfect size.
