I believe it must be teatotaler Tuesday
(whoops…make that teetotaler)
however, even though our subject is in Mrs. Treacher’s Tea Shoppe
I’m not entirely sure she’s just having tea
(maybe tea with just a drop or two of Lydia Pinkham‘s herbal/alcohol concoction)
I’ve been watching a lot of pre 1950s movies lately and one of the first things you notice is that the women wore hats (trust me, I was alive back then and it’s absolutely true). Upper class, middle class, lower class, (almost) all women wore hats. Men wore hats too but their’s were exceedingly less impressive than what the ladies wore.
Straw, felt, cloth,..bows, chiffon, jewels…feathers, flowers, ferns…big, small, and everything inbetween…
hats were happening
and to my mind one of the more interesting styles was the Cloche
which is what my snippy tea shoppe lady is wearing
so I say
vive le chapeau!!!
