I enjoyed a lovely high tea today with fellow bloggers Jennifer of Pretty Little Pictures and Ellen of A Wild Tea Party. Our venue of choice was the The Victoria Room in Darlinghurst, where the fingers sandwiches were plentiful, the petit fours delicious and the staff super attentive (and very agreeable when it came to taking lots of pics of us!).
The dress I wore today was the same I recently wore to the Sydney Writers' Festival opening party. I'm a sucker for baby blue and have long coveted a dress decorated with appliques. In this instance they are lace, diamante and faux pearls.
I'm not entirely sure how old this dress is, but I suspect it could actually be 1940s; it has the trademark side zip of the era, a store label (Reich Original), but no sizing details or washing instructions.
There is a similar dress from the same label over at Posh Girl Vintage right now that has been dated as 1940s.
