Not your average tea party

27 Sep

This under.ligne by Doo.Ri dress is officially my favorite new piece. It fits like a glove, and the leather and mesh panelling adds the perfect dose of edge to an otherwise simple LBD.

During our New York visit, I was SO honored to be invited to Doo-Ri’s studio (along with some amazing bloggers) for a “Crafternoon Tea”. The adorable little party – complete with mini-sandwiches, Magnolia cupcakes, and of course, tea! – was in celebration of Ms. Chung’s collaboration with talented jewelry designer, Melissa Joy Manning. We chit-chatted the afternoon away, all the while exercising our fingers for the sake of friendship bracelets. Yep, that’s right, Melissa Joy Manning taught me to make jewelry!

We got a sneak preview of their INCREDIBLE collaboration, and while I swore I’d never use the phrase “I Die”, it pretty much hits the nail on the head. Think giant spike rings with chain draping, thick, embellished cuffs, and metal gloves. My heart skipped a beat.

The entire collection has not yet been released, but click here for a little taste from the Doo.Ri S/S 2011 show.

Huge thanks to Deanne for inviting me, and of course Doo-Ri and Melissa for hosting such a lovely party!!
