Tea Party and UO Dressing Room Review

Ping (from All About Fashion Stuff) and I had a date last weekend at Crown and Crumpet for afternoon tea. We had an assortment of finger sandwiches, scones, and mini desserts paired with a tea of our choice. It was a 2-person tea party and we had a great time catching up! This is definitely an ideal place to have bridal showers or little girl princess parties. Check out Ping's post about our visit here

Such an adorable tea strainer!
This didn't look like a lot of food but we were stuffed...
With the lovely Ping 
Does my top look familiar? That's because it's the same as the one from this post but in a different color. Thanks Ping for being my photographer for the day!
Xhilaration sleeveless tank in Mustard (buy) -- H&M skinny pants in cobalt (although they look kinda purple in person (similar) -- Lux ribbed cardigan from UO (similar) -- Payless block heel pumps --> LOVE these shoes (see on Jean from Extra Petite) (similar)
Accessories: Target geometric fringe necklace (similar) -- silver mesh ring from HK (similar) -- you can't really see them but I'm also wearing Claire's yellow flower stud earrings (similar) -- thrifted Ralph Lauren belt - sz S (similar) -- H&M gray crossbody purse (similar)
And of course after eating, we did what we do best...SHOP! Urban Outfitters, which is one of my favorite stores, was at the top of our list and I snapped a few dressing room photos after raiding the sale section. =P
 BDG sheer v-neck tee - sz XS (buy) -- Silence and Noise tiered skirt - sz S (buy)
BDG sheer v-neck tee - sz S (buy) --  Staring at Stars chantilly shorts - sz XS (buy)
BDG sheer v-neck printed tee - sz XS (buy) -- Kimchi Blue bow shorts - sz XS (buy)
I ended up buying the mustard and printed BDG tees (soooo soft!), the tiered skirt, this Silence and Noise geo cardigan, and this Pins and Needles lace-trimmed babydoll blouse in black. I really liked the chantilly shorts but they didn't fit as nicely as I thought they would. Overall, very thrilled with my purchases! 

Have you had an afternoon tea experience? Do you shop at Urban Outfitters and what would you have gotten? 


  1. I love your cobalt skinny jeans paired with your mustard top, it's such a wonderful color combo! Awesome necklace too!  I haven't shopped at Urban in a long time since there's not that many of them around my area.

  2. I LOVE afternoon tea! When I was studying abroad in London, I used to go ALL the time - I miss it a lot. I know there are a few places here in NYC, but I haven't been...after seeing these yummy photos though, I think I may just have to splurge :) I'm loving those UO chantilly shorts. 

  3. Afternoon tea looks really great! UO sells nice t-shirts too. They fit you well!

    Sorry if you are confused by my name... I used SS as my name for a while, but DISQUS started refusing me as SS a few days ago. I created new one.

  4. karen-- i had so much fun too! i told the ladies that we all should do high tea at neiman's rotunda. btw you look super leggy in those pants! it's a cute color on you. thanks for finding that skirt for me too, can't wait to wear mine! :)

  5. You and Ping looks so adorable. I always wanted to take my daughter for a afternoon tea. Hopefully one day. 

  6. what a cute little tea setup. your outfits are really cool too.

  7. aww I love afternoon tea! sounds like a fun time! love your outfit too!


  8. I have not been to high tea, I would like to, but in Chicago the places that offer it are Peninsula, Four Seasons, and it's about $50...which I would rather save the money and use it on dinner :)  Love your try ons at Urban outfitters!
