Tea Party at Your Big Sister’s Closet

Hoooray for Long Weekend!!!  Victoria Day Long weekend is here and what better way to celebrate than with a lovely afternoon tea party at one of my favourite Plus Sized Boutiques in the city – Your Big Sister’s Closet!

The invitation was specific:  Wear your filliest frock and fabulous hat!

Say no more….I was on it! 😉

I’ve been dying to wear this grey faux lace dress with a built-in crinoline at the hem – hanging in my closet for nearly 4-months.  Yup…bought it a while ago and never had a reason or outting to officially wear it out.  Click here for other looks with this dress.

Plus, last weekend I visited the Weston Flea Market and picked up this ridiculously large and fantastic fascinator.  Clearly the stars aligned and this ensemble was born to hit the streets of the Junction for an afternoon of tea, scones and plus size fashions!

Check out these amazing hats and fascinators on display from David Dunkley Fine Millinery …. A master in his own right, David has studied with the former royal milliner to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. In keeping with this royal millinery lineage, Dunkley’s creations have been sported by members of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s royal entourage and at functions attended by Her Majesty.  Ooooo la la, huh?   Totally appropriate for a Victoria Day afternoon tea 🙂
