Closet-Worthy: Dream High Tea Outfit

In exactly 2 months I will be having High Tea at the Ritz in London and I STILL haven't found my perfect outfit. Since I was getting frustrated I decided to find my dream look no matter what the price and then try to find something similar that's actually in my budget.  Hopefully I'll go out this weekend and search for my perfect dress and then use stuff in my closet to finish the look. :)

I wanted to keep the look classy but still me and fun! And I also threw in a hat/hair accessory because you have to when you go to High Tea, right? ;) I couldn't find a good clutch, but I'm not even sure I'll carry one yet. Would this be an appropriate look? (I'm still not totally sure of what is proper and improper for high tea...XD)
Dress: Marc Jacobs
Blazer: Dion Lee
Headband: Louis Mariette
Pumps: Miu Miu

There were 5 dresses that I really liked so in the end I picked one randomly...here are the runner ups. Click the photos to go to the product pages.

P.S. I find it amusing that on the 4th of July, aka Independence Day, I will be doing something soooo British. I guess I should be British instead of American ;)

  39. THose all look great! But I think you're overthinking the high tea outfit a bit! I'm sure any of your existing Marc Jacobs dresses would be fine... on the other hand, it's always god to have an excuse for a new one! ; )
