I couldn't help but photograph the floral design side by side with the Wisteria print case, together they are blooming beautiful!

Where to enjoy the most luxury designer afternoon tea? At The Berkeley with Dior of course! || Prêt-à-Portea

The amazingly attentive waitress explained to us that Dior approached The Berkeley to create a fashion themed afternoon tea and as this was my second visit, I'm not that surprised.
The first was during London Fashion week a few years ago and true to their usual form, all the cakes matched accessories and clothing that had just strutted down runway. 
Check out our first visit here.

The Berkeley itself faces a gorgeous row of immaculate London townhouses in Knightsbridge, you could sit and people watch (with champers in hand sweetie darling) for hours! 
A nice touch to the set up was the scattered Dior home fragrances, candles and books but not like exiting via the gift shop style, none of these items were for sale. They just helped to immerse you into Mr Christian Dior's world, along with the choice of flower on the tables. One that had grown in his parents French villa garden.

The cakes looked almost too good to eat . . . . . but we actually had no problem in devouring them one at a time. The teeny tiny red Lady Dior bag being a particular favourite, air light red velvet cake that melted in you mouth yum!
We of course kept standards classy with our Bar jacket chocolate biscuit photo! (see below). Sorry (not sorry) if we killed the high end vibe for diners around us. 

The whole experience was fantastic and faultless. If you are heading to the V&A to see the Dior designer of dreams exhibition, be sure to book your afternoon tea at The Berkeley before or after.

Rianna Phillips X Style Diary - March || The Pastel pink welsh coastal village

 Travel is always a massive inspiration behind my designs and recently when me and mum were on an adventure exploring Wales, we came across the beautiful coastal village of Aberaeron.
Nearly all of the houses were pastel and there was blossom blooming on every corner. 
The blossom print . . . It could be next?!

Rianna Phillips X Style Diary - Dior

I seem to keep finding fabulous excuses to visit my local Dior store in Selfridges, Exchange Square, Manchester. Every visit is as special as the first time I stepped in their to choose my wedding earrings, I went for the classic pearl Tribales of course.

So to celebrate my 30th birthday, something precious and sparkly was required . . . .

As always, thanks to the amazing staff and store supervisor Suzie for making the experience as magical as ever!

On with the #unboxing . . . every stage as beautiful as the next. The tissue that carefully padded out each jewellery box was sprayed with Dior's Rose Kabuki fragrance, if only you could smell it, absolute heaven!
