Peggy Porschen at Valentine's: love letters collection



The month of love is upon us once more, and what better way to celebrate than with a mega girly Peggy Porschen Valentine's tea and cake date? Much as I love London's prettiest pink parlour every season come snow and ice, sun and cloud - Peggy Porschen during Valentine's has got to be my favourite of all. Peggy's new "Love Letters" collection sees gold glittering flowers illuminated alongside pretty pink postboxes and romantic proclaimations from Romeo to Juliet alighting the windows. Very romantic indeed! I couldn't book a date fast enough to get some festive outfit pictures, so, keen to capture the spirit of Valentine's Day and all it entails, balloons in hand, off I went... 


My outfit consisted of this gorgeous PrettyLittleThing frill hem mini dress in hot pink satin that I'd spotted on asos; perfect with my magenta boots and the heart-shaped shades were also an asos gem I'd unearthed on their site a few weeks previous. The confetti pink and red heart shaped balloons added to the Valentine's theme I wanted running through my shoot alongside a pretty red rose I'd found by chance at the weekend. I wanted a dreamy Valentine's dress that made a strong statement and this look turned out better than I'd even imagined. Powerful pink Valentine's mode = ON! I was so made up with how the outfit pictures came out, especially seeing as it's not easy shooting in a busy London street! 







The Valentine treats on offer were pretty remarkable; from heart-shaped cookies to romantic rose cupcakes, to luxurious heart topped layer cakes to flintiness in the form of love letter biscuits, every February 14th frill had been thought of! We opted for two hot chocolates, delivered with heartiness - literally, and two fabulously fun cookies from the collection. The love letter was too adorable to resist and for that pink pop of festiveness the fuchsia heart was also swept up. Unfortunately due to the weather staff weren't allowing seating outdoors, which was disappointing as one of my favourite things about a Peggy Porschen trip is soaking up the glorious Belgravia atmosphere and getting some stunning snaps of our sweet treats outside, but I captured what I could inside!




If you enjoyed Peggy's La Vie En Rose Valentine collection last year, their Love Letters theme will be sure to set your heart alight once more. I have a soft spot for the heart jean and sequin embellished look I wore at their parlour last February, but I think my Valentine outfit this year was even more special. Dare I say I'm already excited for Peggy's next seasonal display; whatever theme they choose next I'm sure I'll fall in love with all over again!

    The Valentine's Day cakes, cupcakes, cookie boxes and chocolate hearts truffles in Peggy Porschen's Love Letters Collection all look very pretty and delicious, and those hot chocolates with hearts look yummy!
    You looked very pretty rocking the PrettyLittleThing hot-pink satin frill-hem mini-dress, and I love the red heart rimmed sunnies.

  11. You are such a goddess Sophie. I love you in this pink dress, and the accompanying balloons are such a treat. I honestly have no idea how you refrain yourself from NOT stealing that floral display behind you. Oh man, the temptation! Hahahaha! I honestly can not imagine how bustling this spot must be, yet your photos and your lovely serene nature paint a different picture.
