I'm doing a tea party tutorial series on my Instagram account, @ashtyn_newbold_author. Come follow along! Today's topic is what to wear to your tea party.
Have you ever wanted to throw a tea party? Or do you have one to attend this spring or summer and you want something cute, bright, and affordable to wear? If you don't have one to attend, I suggest you throw one. They are so fun! I found a few cute dress options for GREAT prices. These do sell out quickly, but Shein.com has many similar dresses to these. I'm sure you'll be able to find something pretty in no time. The quality is surprisingly good for the price, and the shipping didn't take as long as I expected (under two weeks). I've made more orders from Shein than I care to admit, but I can honestly tell you I'm rarely disappointed! Haha. It's a great place to shop, especially for statement items you only see yourself wearing a few times. These dresses, however, were all amazing, and I will be wearing them all summer!
This one is just $29 and so lacy and pretty! It has a Victorian look to it. It sort of reminds me of the ballgown Margaret Hale wears in the BBC North and South.
This one comes in several different color options and is only $18!
The embroidered flowers on this one are lovely and the color is so vibrant. $21
I love this wrap dress! It is a little lower cut in the front (at least on me) than it appears on the website, so keep that in mind! $21
This one might be my favorite for a tea party. It comes to the floor on my 5'4" frame and it's just so feminine and summery. It comes in several colors! $20
I love this one! The pattern is so cute and I love how it looks over a short-sleeved white tee. Just $17 and comes in several colors!
This one sold out already, but here's a similar one for $18!
Or you can just wear your Regency attire ;) Sew a costume, order one on etsy, or check your local theater to see if they have any for rent!
