You Look Fabulous Dar(jee)ling!

Posted on

Last week we were lucky enough to be invited to the launch of The Vintage Tea Party Book, written by the fabulous flame-haired Angel Adoree of Vintage Patisserie fame, at 93 Feet East.

And in true Rokit style we partied the night away!

We wore: an eclectic mix featuring Bee Smith pillbox hats, dip dye dresses, leather skater skirts, vintage waistcoats and florals. Topped off with 40s style victory rolls and dapper taches!

Spotted: TV chef Gizzi Erskine and her signature beehive.

We drank: Jasmine tea and Louis Roederer champagne cocktails with berries, G&Tea cocktails, and The King's Ginger warmers from vintage teacups - sore heads all round the next day!

We ate: mini baked potatoes with creme fraiche, chicken parfait with pickled onion, mozzarella and tomato sticks, vegetable cemeteries, lemon scones with lavender cream and jam, cupcakes, chocolate chess pieces and THE most divine carrot cake.

We will be attempting some of the recipes and other tips and blogging the results over the next few weeks but in the meantime check out this hall of fame and/or shame...

You can WIN a copy of Angel's beautiful book over on our facebook page, closing date is this Friday (26th August) so hurry!
