Recently while in the city (Toronto) I attended OpportuniTEAS with Kate Linder & Friends in support of the March of Dimes, held at The Fairmont Hotel. Proceeds from this event go to Conductive Education a program of March of Dimes Canada.
The weather was turning a little cooler on this day so layering was essential. I wore my Dolce and Gabbana black pant which is a staple in my wardrobe. I paired the pants with my white Burberry T and my Hermes scarf from a couple of seasons ago. I accessorized with my Hermes orange enamel bracelet, Christian Bernard watch, Hermes leather belt and a black glass bead stretch bracelet I purchased from InPink when I won a giveaway hosted by Ava Grace's Closet this past year. The final layer before my winter coat was a black jacket by Elie Tahari.

Tickets for the event ....
Kate Linder (top left) host brought along 3 of her cast-mates from Young & the Restless to help. Jess Walton (top right); Christian LeBlance (bottom left) and Marco Dapper (bottom right).
The Co-host was Toronto's own Leslie Roberts - who is the Anchor of The News Hour and Co-host of The Morning Show, Global Toronto.
Artists to the stars - Patti Denny & George Guzman (sitting at the right) were on hand to treat lucky auction bidder to a celebrity make-over.
Our host Kate and friends sat on stage and answered questions from the audience. It was interesting listening to how passionate the viewers of The Young and the Restless are - as they asked about the various stories lines on this day time soap that celebrates 25 years.
The tablesetting for attendees was done in white... with a white rose petal table table cloth.
We were able to choose from a selection of fine Fairmont teas....
A surprise .... as this young lady spoke I realized she was the daughter a new friend I had meant earlier in the year when I completed my Angel Practitioner training with Charles Virtue (son of Doreen Virtue). Ashleigh is a brilliant soul and her question was to Marco - if he was single. Since he was - she made a good case since she too is single that they should meet up.
The tray of sweets consisted of fruit cake, cream filled swans, Victorian cream cake, and orange chocolate Madelines.
Though the event started at 2 pm... the sandwiches by the time we sat down at 2:05 pm .. had been devoured by the other attendees at our table - so I have no photo - but I understand it was a selection of Tomato cucumber, ham and onion confit, tuna scallion, smoked turkey and cranberry, egg and watercress.
Warm English honey crumpets and homemade plain and cranberry scones with thick Devonshire cream and strawberry jam.
Ashleigh was the successful bidder on a dress worn by the character Phyllis on Y&R and had the opportunity to have her photo taken with Marco.
Kate's bracelet was stunning!!!
Thank you for stopping by for tea today ...
Stay in Step with High Heeled Life ...
