It's that time again... this week's Theme Thursday topic is "Hats". There are lots of great Theme Thursday players out there, so be sure to check them out!
One of my favorite places to go in Rochester is La-Tea-Da. This is an old fashioned tea shop where you can go for an afternoon cream tea with scones and clotted cream. True, it can't compare to an actual Devonshire cream tea but around here you take what you can get!
La-Tea-Da is heaven for the five-year-old set and I think half their business on weekends is birthday parties for little princesses. You don't see too many guys there, unless it's a sensitive new age guy taking his beloved daughter out for a special treat.
But I digress...
There are certain rules that must be followed when one is going out for tea. Number One is that you must always dress for the occasion. If you are gauche enough to forget your chapeau, there are several walls of hats and boas available for your pleasure. We're talking everything from cloches to straw sun hats to veiled pillboxes to the flapper headbands shown in their promo picture above. My friend, Sondra Stinglash, looks spectacular in her choice... note the fashionable boa added to her ensemble.
The CatLady goes for a slightly wider brim in a fashionable white felt to contrast with her black turtleneck and silver neckwear.
So spill... what would you wear for afternoon tea? Inquiring minds are dying to know!
