St Nickolas Tea


Our costumers St Nickolas Tea on Saturday was really delightful. Many thanks again to isabelladangelo for organizing it for us! The Reynolds Tavern in Annapolis was cozy and beautifully decorated, the tea food very tasty indeed and the company was wonderful! I hope we make this an annual event!


I finally wore my green striped robe à l'Anglaise round gown. You know the one I started for UTR in June (that wasn’t finished in time) and didn't wear at Costume College because I got food poisoning the night before I was supposed to wear it. That one.

Technically I have worn it once, to a Constitution Day thingy for a friend's homeschool group but I'm not counting it since I have no pictures and no costumers were present. Anyway i had great fun wear it to the tea (driving 1.75 hours in it was a different story!) - I think it's my new favorite 18th century outfit. It helps of course that it looks great with fur and it was the perfect day to wear some of my vintage fur collection. It's all about the accessories you know! :>

It's such a perfect color on you, and yes, the fur really does add that extra finishing touch. Wonderful!

I love the fur! Such a luxurious touch, and makes you look even more like you stepped out of a fashion plate. Win!

Thanks! Yay that was what I wanted. I tend to be a minimalist when it comes to costume accessories but I'm learning 18th century styling is all about "more"! Hee.

I mean - you can keep the garb, feathers and dead critters, but the tea food makes me drool... (he he he)
jennylafleur From: jennylafleur Date: December 7th, 2011 02:19 pm (UTC) (link)
Does that me I can have all your dead critters? :>

The food was very tasty, the tea selection was just okay IMHO (pretty standard) but the sandwiches and scones were just what they should have been - yay!

I LOVE that outfit - it looks like a fashion plate! I think the fur really makes it! That dress would be lovely on its own, of course; stripes! Green! :D

Thank you so much! It really came together - I'm learning that styling the 18th century is all about "more"! :>

You really do suit the 18thC don't you? :) That dress is such a pretty colour, and with the furs bringing out the colours in brown stripes and your lovely hair, it's a perfect combination :)
