OOTD: High Tea

Each cup of tea represents an imaginary voyage.  ~Catherine Douzel

Yesterday was the grand launch of SM Babies. The ARC PR team has been preparing for this glorious event since early November, and it was so nice to see it come to fruition. Located in the majestic The Peninsula Manila, the event required everyone to be aptly dressed for High Tea.

I normally don't take dress codes too seriously (because I get lazy sometimes), but I willingly embraced this particular requirement. I am game for anything vintage (or vintage-inspired). I've always admired the old-fashioned way of dressing -- gloves, high collars, hats and the traditional values and ladylike virtues that came with it.

Dress: Unarosa | Wedges: Ferretti | Fascinator: custom-made

Am so glad everyone loved my dress, especially Krissy who commented that I looked like I was channeling Lavinia from "Princess Sarah". Not sure what to make of that remark, LOL. 

Disclosure: SM is a client of ARC Public Relations, the sister company of Outsmark where I work as an Online Relationship Manager.
