Tea Society's Vintage Cocktail Evening!

Friday night was the Tea Society's Cocktail evening, and the last event before we break up for Christmas. The theme was vintage, so everyone was dressing up in their favourite era's outfits, and for me it was the 40's. I love seeing images of women and teenagers during the War, the hairstyles, elegant shapes, plainer colours and shoes with socks! We started off in my favourite tearoom/cocktail bar Dolly's (where I've been before quite a few times, ha!) and ordered quite a few of the delicious cocktails that arrived in teapots and teacups! 
Jacket: eBay Blouse: H&M Skirt: Borrowed from Melanie Shoes: Primark Socks: Madewell Bag: Charity Shop
I had such an amazing night, it was really lovely to see everyone dressed up from their favourite era, even if it was a little surreal when we went into a club later on in the evening! I recently bought this blouse from H&M, and the fit was so perfect for my outfit, cinching in at the waist and with powerful shoulders. My jacket is from a vintage shop on eBay, and the skirt I borrowed from Melanie, in the picture above with me! If you ever visit Falmouth in Cornwall, you really should visit Dolly's Tearoom, it's such a lovely little gem, with cocktails with unusual names in miss-matched china. I had a Flapper's Delight, which was made up of vodka, apple juice & vanilla, and the campari and cranberry juice Queen of Hearts. 
My weekend has been pretty lazy, even though I have a pretty massive deadline this Thursday, I really need to pull my socks up! Hopefully Friday will come by pretty quickly as y family are coming to stay this weekend, and I can't wait to take them to Dolly's, I know my mum will love it so much! Then after that, only one more week at University before I endure the six hour journey home!


Have you ever dressed up for a vintage theme before, which era would you choose? For me it's usually the forties or the sixties! Do you have anywhere near you, like my Dolly's, that you've fallen in love with?


Love, Charlestown xoxo.

  2. It sounds great! Cocktails in tea cups? Wow :D
    I love your outfit as well (and your makeup is amazing!). I have not dressed up vintage, but I'd pick 40's or 50's. And I don't have anything like Dolly's near me, but I hope I'll discover something soon!
