Can you see me grinning ear to ear? You know how giddy I get when I’m excited about something. And I am over the moon excited to share the beautiful designer, Victoria Dunn with you all. This sweet and talented beauty from Charleston, South Carolina is a gem I tell you!

I was honored to wear one of her designs, the Kiawah Dress to The Parker Grace Tea Room last week for a birthday luncheon my mama took me to!

So you are getting a two for today: not only sharing the delightful afternoon tea details but the beautiful Victoria Dunn Designs as well. I mean when you think about it, a delightful tea house and beautiful feminine eyelet just go hand-in-hand! And of course the twirl factor.

Just look how pretty the sweet Victoria is! She is wearing her Sully's Mandarin Collar Dress in Passion Fruit which is on my Wish List!!

She graduated from college in Canada with a degree in finance. She fell in love with Southern design and fashion when she married a true southern gentleman. and moved to the United States. They reside in Charleston, South Carolina where all her designs are inspired. Coastal and southern living is so fun, feminine, and vibrant. Victoria only designs pieces that bring her joy and carefully and purposely designs each collection.


This Kiawah Midi Dress is one of her fabulous PETITS BLANCS DÉLICATS or shall we say "whites,” which to me is the quintessential color for spring and summer! It features a high mandarin collar, scalloped sleeves and scalloped bottom. And oh there are pockets!! The fabric is specialty eyelet fabric from Jaipur, India, 100% organic cotton and the dress is lined!

I'm also eyeing her King Street Maxi in Azalea as I will be traveling to Charleston excited!!

 And the perfect place to wear a Victoria Dunn Design

The Parker Grace Tea Room

The Parker Grace Tea Room began in 1994 when the original owner had a dream to open a tea room with a scratch kitchen and a romantic, charming overall experience.

Nestled in historic and beautiful Roanoke, the Parker Grace Tea Room is filled with gorgeous artifacts that not only create an elegant and charming atmosphere, but also communicate rich story and history. Built in 1855, the home has transformed the oldest existing home in Roanoke into an enchanting get-away. Surround yourself with china, crystal, story, and good company.

Such a wonderful spot to enjoy scrumptious, homemade food served with grace and elegance!

The food and tea was some of the best I've had at 
a luncheon in a long time..delish!!

Had to have my pinky up a bit, lol

Often credited with the famous quote, "Let them eat cake," their unique Marie Antoinette dessert stand holds all kinds of our favorite goodies. Antoinette was the last queen before the French Revolution and was known for her choices in wardrobe and jewelry. I went crazy for this stand!

Mom and I had no idea our pink and white would match the aesthetic.

The Spoonful of Sugar Candy Shop upstairs was a treat as well!

I truly felt like Royalty...a dress and tea room fit for any Birthday Princess. Thank you, Mama, Thank you Victoria and Thank you staff at The Parker Grace!

As you can see, this was the perfect place for a lunch for my beautiful mom and I! I wish I could take each and every one of you there as I said if I lived close, I would probably be there weekly! And most likely wearing a 

Victoria Dunn Design!
