Six times stylish.. 'the lady in the houndstooth check suit'..



Where did the month of May go? The expression 'time flies by in the wink of an eye' is apt! On Saturday the skies were blue and the day warm. The clink of teacups and the chatter of ladies gathered together to raise money for a worthy cause could only mean one thing.. Australia's biggest morning tea. You've been to Jenny's afternoon tea here before, it's an elegant affair with it's mix of attending 'Royals'.. Doulton and Albert that is :) raising funds in this way is a stylish notion.. and then there was the lady in the houndstooth check suit, hand made she told me.. j'adore! It's WA Day today, a long weekend.. I'm looking forward to catching up on stylish posts around the world. Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

  3. Oh I love it...stylish in every sense of the word.

    Thank you, Grace, for coming up with this challenging topic. It was fun (but really difficult for me). I am looking forward to seeing all the results too.

  6. The top shot is also a great reflection one. You can clearly see the lady's pied de poule tailleur on the tea set.

  8. Very elegant, Grace. A houndstooth fabric like that puts me in mind of David Jones ... I am impressed with the "hand-made".

  10. It's got to be elegant Royal Doultons, but do they have pink periwinkles like Hyacinth's? (Keeping Up Appearnces).

    I know all is serious, but I could not help bursting out a hearty laugh when I read your post.

    Great photo by the way. Hope you've had a great week end.

  19. How to be stylish - you gave the perfect answers! :-)
    Love the lady dressed up in houndstooth check, which I love (I keep a flacon of Diorissimo in the classic houndstooth design for that very reason).

  21. What a stylish tea service, Grace !

  22. Funny you call this "houndstooth", we call it here the french name "Pied de coque" (Rooster foot) and the smaller version "Pied de poule" (Chicken foot). If the lady made the suit herself she is very clever and stylish!

  23. Impressive... and definitely stylish!

  24. btw Terrific topic.
    I had a houndstooth sports jacket back in my collegiate past, along with a bunch of double-brested suits. Was I stylin?

  25. Very stylish silver tea set.

  26. An image that could be from any year of the last 50 years. Classic as well as stylish. Love the black and white.

  27. My parents had such a set, too - for decoration only. Or the cups just went too hot, I can´t remember.
    Happy WA day, Grace!

  35. That looks like a place with STYLE from A-Z

  36. That indeed looks to be a stylish setting. Houndstooth to some, David Jones pattern to others.

  37. The woman must be a very good seamstress because her suit looks professionally made. The pattern itself is not one that is easy to match. The tea service completes the image of elegance and style!!
