Style is more about being yourself. ~ Oscar de la Renta
As you all know, this weekend was filled with pomp and glam at the Zen Garden Fashion High Tea. I have been attending this event religiously, without fail since 2017 and I was so happy that it’s finally back on our calendar!
Fashion is instant language. It’s a way to say who you are especially at first glance. And, I, darling, am far from boring! Like many, I enjoy fashion! And, I enjoyed dressing up for Fashion High Tea!
The weather this Saturday was warm and bright and for my outfit, I went with a two piece that screams all things summer. Simple, but I definitely caught your attention. You see, despite contrary opinion, I believe that wearable fashion, as simple as it may be, remains elegant and timeless. And that is my personal style; my style ID.
I know when you think of ‘High Tea’ the first thing that comes to mind is a fascinator! Instead of one, I thought it would be different and fun to pair my outfit with a boater hat. Monaco! Yes? Yes!
Not pictured, my scent of the day was Honor by Amouage! And this was an instant mood booster!
Wearable, versatile and stunning! This look will go easy from a day time event, to Sunday brunch and if broken, you could wear this skirt to church; and the top with a pair of shorts to the beach.
Showcasing female designers from Africa, the runway show was my highlight! As a budding designer, I am definitely inspired by the genius behind all these collections.
Aside from the pomp and glam of the event, I resonate with giving back to the community. The Zen Garden Fashion High Tea drives its proceeds to supporting Gender-based Violence Survivors – a cause that has been very close to my heart! I am ready for the next!
