That's right, your's truly, loves tea cups and tea pots and all things related to tea Time. It's definitely part of why I choose the name for this blog, my brand, and have sought after several particular tea time inspired prints. Funny enough, I have acquired two of those very particular pieces I have had my googly eyes on and oddly enough both in two of my preferred color ways, mint green.
Innocent World Tea Time underbust jsk and Alice and the Pirates Tea Time Nostalgia jsk II for those curious
And again, oddly enough, I will not be using either in my post today with the exception of mentioning that I've magically gathered them. It's simply not the right manner of happenstance because I had, without realizing it, managed to coordinate my last outfit to one of my tea cups for a friend's birthday tea (yes, I went to an afternoon tea birthday with my tea cup in toe, and yes I try to coordinate my tea cups to my coord, I've been bringing tea cups with me for years).
So, without further ado, here it is:
Jsk/underskirt/blouse: Alice and the Pirates
Bonnet: Triple Fortune
Socks: Innocent World
Headdress/rosette chain: The Bloody Tea Party
Tea cup: Aynsley
Prior to moving here I had to give up a few of my pieces and came down with only about 6 tea cups, the first my mother ever gave me and a few other pretty ones. And when I settled a bit I found a wonderful lady who tends to know my preferences. Sometimes I pick up cute pieces that are a little newer like this one and sometimes I'll manage to snag a glorious Victorian piece or two, it's a wonderful mixed bag, and my collection is turning out to be as colorful as my wardrobe.
Do you have a tea cup collection?
That's it for this week's edition of the Lolita Blog Carnival! I have to say it was very refreshing for me and made it a bit easier for me to get out what I wanted to say.
