High Societea at Werribee Mansion

If you were in Melbourne yesterday you will know what a glorious day it turned into. If you weren’t, I took some pictures for you at Societea, a high tea afternoon for bloggers and other lucky people at Werribee Mansion, to prove it.

Here’s Connie from K is for Kani and her sister, both wearing floral headpieces Connie makes herself, and Iolanthe doing an excellent impression of a Hollywood pin-up model!

With Cecylia who is all in vintage (I made my dress from an old kimono and my headpiece from an old straw hat, so I suppose it’s a vintage outfit too).

Dasha Gold looking very 1920s, with a somewhat dangerous hat!
Daniella and Marcus, who I had the pleasure of sitting with and chatting to over pretty cups of tea from T2. Daniella set up Goldie, an online vintage jewellery store. DO NOT CLICK HERE If you value your credit card!

Kyra, who organised the whole shebang, along with some pretty ladies and Brem from Swoon.

Marianne in delightful vintage as usual, with her dashing beau, John.

The sweet sisters again…

We couldn’t have had a more perfect day for High Tea on the balcony of the mansion. If I’d known how gorgeous it was going to be I would have spent more time exploring – there’s a lot to see, including inside the mansion itself. I had a sneaky peek, but it would have been more interesting to do a guided tour. Oh well, I had to leave something for next time!

Werribee というところって知っていますか?メルボルン市内から車で30分ぐらい行けるsuburbですが、ヴィクトリア時代のマンションに大きい公園、そしてバラ園やサファリパークみたいな動物園があって、日帰りにちょうどいい場所です。昨日は他のブロガーたちとHigh Teaをマンションでいただいたのでその様子の写真をアップしました。(ちなみに、着ているワンピースは着物で作ったものです!)
