cherry tart

Hard to believe it was that long ago, but last August, several vintage Bay Area ladies (loosely known as The Golden Collective) met up for high tea at the Rotunda in Neiman Marcus. It was a great excuse to spend a gorgeous afternoon together and get gussied up in vintage dresses, matching purses and heels, and *just be girls*. We decided at the time that it should be something we tried to do more often. Understandably, getting half a dozen busy ladies together at the same time can be a challenge - but we managed to meet up again last weekend for another lovely tea! This time the sun was shining hotter than usual in SF, and we met up at a lush Middle Eastern tea salon for potent green teas and delicious snacks. (Un)fortunately, we had too good of a time actually eating and visiting to get any snaps of the group, or the food! I did however cram in a mini photo sesh with Christina (aka For Show) and managed to get a couple shots of my delightful 2-piece cherry print playsuit, perfect for the summer days we've been having! Hopefully there will be many more teas with these ladies in the near future! 


  1. I love this look! So vintage and classy...and cute! xx

  2. So cute, Ashley! I'm bummed that I had to miss this round of tea. It really is a feat to get everyone together. I'm thinking of trying to set another one up for June as part of my birthday festivities.

    1. Rachel - you were certainly missed! We were talking about having a Japanese tea in Japantown, complete with pika pika photos sometime soon!
