Afternoon Tea Outfit, White Coat

Shangri-La Toronto Afternoon Tea Outfit

Shangri-La Toronto Afternoon Tea

Flower Fishnets

Finally I get to have a reunion with my former work wifey! We’ve been trying to do a proper tea for ages. Afternoon tea is about my favourite thing to do and I’m slowly visiting every possible place around the city. Now, I can cross the Shangri-La off my list.


This place isn’t a traditional tea room, meaning the decor is Asian fusion themed, not British. It is held in the hotel lobby, which sounds like a bad idea. But the lobby isn’t drab, it has windows to the ceiling all over it. The nicest part was a live pianist played the grand piano as you ate your scones. Since this place is modern and near the financial district, I thought I’d go for more of a corporate, classy look. A fascinator or feather hat would have been too odd here. Next teatime I’ll be sure to wear a crazy hat.

My outfit was simple and monochromatic. A skin tight black dress that went just above the knee and was sleeveless. A little black dress is always a good idea and I feel amazing in this one. I paired it with a white jacket with big bell sleeves, it reminds me of what a politician or President’s wife would wear. The jacket is a statement piece and dresses the whole look up. To add interest to the outfit i wore fishnets with a line of flowers up the leg. I’ve been into being comfortable lately and it was Sunday afternoon so I opted for boots not heels.

The tea was pricey, but the service was exceptional and the teapots were pretty. Everything was in theme from the server’s dresses, receipt envelope to the teapots! I love some thoughtful coordination.
