miss b loves the fashion-inspired Afternoon Tea, Raffles Dubai

Since the British colonial rule, Singaporeans have enjoyed the English tradition of High Tea. The iconic Raffles Singapore has one of the most famous High Teas in the world and I too followed that tradition (a few years ago on a quick tour of Singapore) in the  Tiffin room with tea, finger sandwiches, chicken pies and pastries followed by the famed Singapore Sling cocktail which was apparently created by a Raffles bartender at the turn of the 19th century.

Raffles Dubai has recently introduced the ultimate 21st century Afternoon Tea with a fashionable twist-‘The Collection’. As soon as I read the publicity I knew I had to try it and I was even more impressed with my fashionable tea than the traditional version.

The attention to detail was incredible with designer sandwiches and couture cakes in the shape of handbags, shoes, dresses and hats. My favourites included the smoked salmon tea dress with cream cheese bodice, the chocolate almond stiletto and the white chocolate passion fruit evening bag.They looked so perfect and too beautiful to eat(at first!) but with photos taken they were soon impossible to resist.

Model Inès de la Fressange was once the muse of Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel and is also a designer who has written this new guide to being stylish in the effortlessly chic way of so many 'Parisiennes'. I have always admired Inès as the epitome of French style and I couldn't wait to read her new book sharing many of the secrets she has accumulated throughout her time in the world of fashion.

The book has the feel of a gorgeous journal complete with its red ribbon bookmark and inside its just as creative. There's an easy to read layout with hand-written lists,beautiful photos of her equally chic daughter, Nine and Inès's quirky drawings all adding a really personal touch.
