'Tea Rose' Outfit Inspiration and Size Guide!

by Kerryn Kitten on 29 Comments

It was the summer of 1955, and the streets were lined with charming shops and cosy cafes. Among the vintage cars and neatly trimmed lawns, a vibrant tiffany-blue Thunderbird cruised down Main Street. Behind the wheel was Amelia Harper, a spirited young woman with a love for adventure and a penchant for turning heads.

Amelia's curvy car pulled up in front of "The Tea Rose," a quaint tea shop, the windows adorned with blooming flower boxes. She parked with a confident smile, the gleaming blue Thunderbird catching the eye of passers-by. As she stepped out, her vintage dress, pale blue and covered in a smattering of roses, fluttered in the breeze. She paused to admire the way the wide waistband and voluminous 'Vintage Classic' Petticoats emphasised her curves, and giggled, remembering the indecision she’d felt that morning, choosing between her ‘Tea Rose’ Day Dress and her ‘Tea Rose’ Wiggle Dress, with its elegant cheongsam-inspired collar and darling red bows.  It was quite exhausting, being a girl!  She couldn’t help giggling again at herself.  She loved her beautiful vintage 50s dresses!

Inside The Tea Rose, the air was filled with the sweet aroma of freshly brewed tea. Tables adorned with white linen cloths and vintage china were set for an afternoon indulgence. Amelia's beau, James Anderson, awaited her at a corner table, dressed in a sharp suit and twirling the end of his neatly groomed moustache.  The waitress, adorned in a black 'Tea Rose' Collar Dress, approached with a smile.  Amelia couldn't help but compliment her on her beautiful dress! 

Outside, the tiffany-blue thunderbird stood proudly under the fading sunlight. Amelia and James, lost in the nostalgia of the 1950s, enjoyed each other's company, creating memories that would endure beyond the passing years.

'Tea Rose' is a beautiful floral print, brimful of romance and summer glamour! Which piece will you wear to channel your inner Amelia?  Join the Kittens of Kitten D'Amour as they try on their favorite 'Tea Rose' designs for you!

 

Sophie Kitten (Bust: 90cm / Waist: 77cm / Hips: 96cm / Height:166cm)

‘Tea Rose’ Frill Front Blouse (Red) (10)The ‘Tea Rose’ Frill Front Blouse in red is a great blouse for any occasion. Sophie loves that she can dress this blouse up with any Kitten D’Amour skirt for more sophisticated evenings. Or for more casual everyday wear, she can pair this with a comfy pair of Kitten Denim jeans. This design a must-have staple in her wardrobe!  Sophie wore the size 10 Blouse, finding it sat nice and flush on her waist. The arms of this design are elasticated, meaning it is comfortable around the arms, allowing her plenty of room to move.

Tea Rose’ Full Skirt (10): What a beautiful collection ‘Tea Rose’ is!  The new ‘Tea Rose’ Full Skirt is one of Sophie Kitten’s favourite designs from this collection. Created in 100% cotton, this full skirt felt so soft on her skin.  Sophie wore a size 10 in this gorgeous design and loved how beautifully It fit her figure.  Her regular size 10 fit her perfectly, allowing her finger space around the waistband. Sophie can’t wait to show off this beautiful ‘Tea Rose’ design!

Tea Rose’ Wiggle Dress (10)The ‘Tea Rose’ Wiggle Dress is such a sophisticated design, showcasing Sophie’s curves in all the right places! This dress cinched beautifully around the smallest part of her waist and also skimmed Sophie’s hips perfectly. Sophie adores the eye-catching bustle on the back of the dress, perfect for the moment she strolls away. This stunning design is one of a kind, accentuating Sophie’s fabulous hourglass figure!  Sophie accessorised with a pair of Kitten D’Amour’s Back Seam Pantyhose in red, and a pair of red ‘Vixen’ heels. This design is one not to miss!  The size 10 wiggle dress was a firmer fit - just how she likes it.

‘Tea Rose’ Day Dress (8): The ‘Tea Rose’ Day Dress has a lovely vintage style to it, ensuring all eyes are on you as you pass by. A stunning wide waistband cinches you in perfectly around the waist. This design has something special about it, in the way it makes you feel once you put it on. Classic and classy, perfect for a beautiful evening. The straps on this design are wide, ensuring the classic dress sits perfectly around the bust area for ladies who are blessed with the best. Sophie sized down to a size 8 in the design as she wanted a nice firm fit around the waist but could also easily wear a size 10 – your size choice would depend on how firm you like your dress. Sophie is putting all 3 colours of this on her wish list! 

Jackie Kitten (Bust: 87cm / Waist: 74cm / Hip: 104cm / Height: 163cm)

‘Tea Rose’ Day Dress (8): The ‘Tea Rose’ Day Dress is Jackie's favourite design in this collection. The ‘Tea Rose’ Day Dress feels sublime, in a light silky/cotton fabric. The lovely, gathered fabric and cinched in waist creates the most flattering silhouette. Jackie's favourite detail is the classic red piping, which brings the dress alive!

Jackie wore her usual size 8 for a very comfortable fit around the waist and bust. 

‘Tea Rose’ Top (8): Jackie is delighted with the beautiful fit of the ‘Tea Rose’ Top!  The gathered bust, detailed red piping and velvet bow all contribute to the luxurious feel this design has.  Jackie wore a size 8 in this very fitted top – usually she’d wear a size six if it were a blouse. The ‘Tea Rose’ Top cinches in at the waist for a very flattering look. It looks fabulous styled with any of the ‘Tea Rose’ skirts and looks like a dress when worn with the ‘Tea Rose’ Full Skirt.

‘Tea Rose’ Classic Full Skirt (Red) (8): The fabric is just to die for!  It is lightweight and almost silky in texture, meaning it feels glorious and has a wonderful movement. The extra length creates a vintage feel, as does the lovely centre pleat detail. If you need a great classic skirt to add to your Kitten D’Amour collection this would be the perfect addition. Jackie wore her usual size 8 for a comfortable fit on the waist.

Tea Rose’ Full Skirt (8): The ‘Tea Rose’ print is vibrant with the perfect combination of red, blue and pink. This skirt features a row of velvet bows to one side, and in combination with the ‘Tea Rose’ Top it became the perfect outfit.

Jackie found the fit to be similar to that of the ‘Tea Rose’ Classic Full Skirt. Jackie was thrilled to discover side seam pockets!

Tea Rose Maxi Dress (8): If you’re a Kitten who loves Kitten D’Amour Maxi Dresses you will adore this one! The lace sleeve is soft and finishes the decolletage perfectly with a velvet bow at the centre. This dress secures at the back with a zip - there's no shirring in this beauty! The bodice is fitted to the waist before billowing out into a long tiered skirt. Jackie is 163cm tall and wore the ‘Jazz’ heel, finding the length to be perfect. Jackie wore her regular size 8 for the perfect fit.

Add a few ‘Ma Belle’ Fleurs in red and pink for complete summer elegance!

'Tea Rose' Playsuit (8): Jackie adored the 'Tea Rose' Playsuit, finding her usual size 8 to be perfect. While the 8 was firm on the hips, she wouldn't size up to a 10.  Jackie added the 'Beauty School' Fairy Dust Belt in red to really cinch the playsuit in at her waist, to add that va-va-voom to her curvy figure.  She loved the cheeky length, which is a little shorter than the 'French Vacation' Playsuit, and found the torso to be generous in length.  Finally, Jackie loved the red piping detail!

Shayla Kitten (Bust - 84 cm / Waist - 61 cm / Hip 81 cm / Height: 168cm)

‘Tea Rose’ Frill Front Blouse (Black) (size 4):  This dreamy blouse is perfectly true to size! The fit isn’t as snug as some of blouses from past collections due to its silky material but it’s the perfect one to tuck in for a more relaxed look. Shayla Kittens suggests that if the ‘Florentine’ Frill Front Blouse is a favourite in your kitten rotations, you’ll find this one just as comfortable!

‘Tea Rose’ Classic Full Skirt (Black) (size 4): This skirt runs the tiniest bit larger, Shayla found. If you prefer a more snug fit, you may wish to size down. This skirt may be high-waisted but she still has some length! The ‘Tea Rose’ Classic Full Skirt is a little longer than your typical full skirt. At 5’6 tall, it sat around 5cm below Shayla’s knee.

‘Tea Rose’ Classic Dress (Blue) (4): The ‘Tea Rose’ Classic Dress was true to size! There’s no need to size up or down with this gorgeous design. The fabric has a bit of stretch around the waist and the ruching around the bust allows for a little bit of extra room up top if you’re a larger-busted beauty.

‘Tea Rose’ Wiggle Dress (4): Shayla found the ‘Tea Rose’ Wiggle Dress to be as true to size as a wiggle can be. This design has a bit of stretch to it and a hidden vent in the bustle so movement is no issue with this beauty!

‘Tea Rose’ Frill Front Blouse (Pink) (4): Tammy is wearing a size 4 as she found this pretty blouse to be a little generous.
