Mine was a particularly glamorous weekend, what with an Old Hat soirée Friday evening, and then a Darcy Society tea Saturday afternoon. It was all seam stockings and high heels and lipstick for a good 48 hours there: a very enjoyable blur.
Darcy Soc’s “Rosings Tea” made for a marvellous afternoon of sweet things and tiny sandwiches. Period drama enthusiasts are excellent banterers, dropping casual references to “Persuasion” and “Emma” into conversation at the most wonderfully inopportune moments.
I have splendid splendid photos from Darcy Soc’s “Rosings Tea” thanks to the lovely Vanessa Low of The Monday Issue, who was snapping the crowd as well as the very extravagant Victoria Room décor. It’s an aesthetic feast – High Tea porn, I’d say.
Voilà, the photos – many thanks to Vanessa:
And here is The Fashion (that’s the very glamorous Darcy Soc president Miranda beside me):
