Tea Time


Ladies and Tea

Half Body Portrait
Let Them Eat Cake
It's been warm and blustery lately in Los Angeles, meaning it's the perfect weather for tea!  My beautiful cousin, Elaine, recently got engaged and held a tea party in LA.  We were served a slew of different kinds of teas and given platters of cute tea sandwiches, scones, desserts and gossip (Mmm!  My favorite).  Played lots of cute bridal shower games--none of which I won.  But by the end I moaned about getting second place so much they gave me a centerpiece of flowers.  Haha!

Knew there was going to be quite a bit of walking, so I wore my comfy heels today.  I like them because they go well with my  current go-to summer dress.  Wore minimal makeup because I wanted a light, youthful look (AKA I was lazy).  My lovely sisters took all these photos, so a big thanks to them!  And excuse the awkward posing.  I'll get that whole "nonchalant, looking off into the distance, pretending to walk" pose down soon.  But for now, you get awkward smiles!



  1. Awww you look so pretty. I love your dress and those shoes are awesome, but I don't think I could walk a lot with them. o.O I don't think I could walk at all wearing those shoes. I need to start practising.

    And seriously, that tea party looks amazing. :O Will all those lovely and delicious things, yum!! *u* It's a great idea. Congratulations to your cousin!

  2. You look absolutely stunning, Torie! Beautiful!
    What a great idea for an engagement!

  3. This looks like such a fun day, there's nothing better than afternoon tea and gossip! Those sandwiches look amazing!
    Thanks for your comment on my blog too - I study Scottish and British history, mostly from 18th-20th C with a focus on social and economic history. I really love it, I'd definitely recommend double-majoring if you enjoy history!
