Afternoon High Tea Celebrating Elegance!!

IMG_1068

I walk into a room Just as cool as you please, And to a man, The fellows stand or Fall down on their knees. Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees. I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally. Phenomenal Woman. That’s me.

Saturday July 29th 2017 was a day that I won’t forget.  Talk about being inspired, uplifted and empowered. Women coming together without any pretense, collaborating and NOT competing. The time now is 1:00 PM and all of the ladies are arriving at the Baccarat Hotel for our Afternoon High Tea. Everyone is dressed in their finest, engaging in good conversation as we wait for our Tea Sommelier to arrive. First let me introduce to you these two amazing women who joined me for this grand event. I love them dearly and I’m holding on to them with both hands and not letting go! ❤️  Here’s Tammy and Kim, and ladies may I please borrow those beautiful hats. These women were Slaying  and looked absolutely GAW-JUS  on this lovely Saturday afternoon.

Just look at Lisa, she gave me that side turn with the shoulder up as she maintained that beautiful smile. Ok Lisa, you’re looking mighty  FIERCE in that hat!

She’s stylish, She’s classy,  She’s a smart business woman and entrepreneur.  She traveled from D.C. to be a part of our special day and I feel so honored that I can call her my friend. Her name is Lana!! Work that red carpet girlfriend!!

Meet my beautiful mother.  Mom did not have to look very far to find an outfit or hat for this event. She took a walk slowly down the hallway of her NYC apartment and shopped right out of her closet.  Growing up in the Pentecostal church we wore hats all the time and we continue to do so till this day.  My mom is looking so fashionable in her black and white attire.  I love her dearly and so proud to be her baby girl !!

I’m so thankful for these women that are in my circle.  Their support, encouragement and friendship is unmatched.

Hello it’s me 👋🏾.   I’m loving my red and black Derby Feathered Hat Fascinator. This was an Etsy find. When I opened the box, I was blown away immediately.  This hat is so elegant and classy……Lets All Scream “Haute Couture”!!!
