We were lucky enough to recieve 'The Vintage Tea party book' by the very glamourous Angel Adore. So, we thought we'd have a little trip to our favourite caffe on Church street to come up with our hard hitting (ahem) opinion.
This aesthetically pleasing book will certainly have you drooling over a huge range of reciepes. (Most of them were not suitable for Vegans so unfortunately we were not able to make them in their true glory).
Our favorite part of the book was the gorgeous illustrations featuring bunny girls and foxy ladies. The book also includes beautifully illustrated invitations which can be photocopied and sent to your loved ones.
The book is divided into brunch, afternoon, evening and style section. The style section includes 'how to's for three fabulous hairstyles including 'the poodle' which is one of my personal favorites.
We'll certainly be giving the cocktails a try!
Rather than the retro aficionado this book is the perfect present for that girl that says 'I love retro, but I've never been brave enough/ don't know where to start'. Do you know that girl? If so it can be found here for a mere £14!
1930's day dress: 'Beyond Retro'

We haven't been blogging a lot as Harriett has moved into her fabulous new flat in Hackney. She's putting together a 1930's boudoir with an Asian theme. Its already delicious and you're going to love it!
Lots of love, Aimee xx
