Six Three

Tootsie in Russian Tea Room

This weekend, my age finally exceeds my height. And to celebrate that unenviable accomplishment, I am going to a tea room with the girls on the eve of my birthday.
I am not a big tea drinker. I only resort to tea if I have a cold, but going to a tea is something so feminine that it is irresistible to this femulator.

As I wrote here two years ago after attending my first (and only) tea, "It was a very feminine adventure. All of the customers and all of the staff were female and the room was beautifully appointed in a most feminine manner."

You don't wear jeans and a T-shirt to a tea. I have plenty of tea-worthy outfits, but the weather is a big consideration. The weather girl says it will be "mostly sunny" with a "high" temperature of 38°F and that makes me shiver when I think about some of the outfits I'd consider wearing to a tea!

  1. Congrats on the coming birthday! I'll be 63 in Sept, so ^5's. I've been reading your blog for some time now, and decided it was time to be a follower. As a "GG" I can say with all sincerity that there are any number of us "born" women who wish they looked as well when dressed . What saddens me is the dressing down of our gender...when did ripped jeans and graphic tees, though fine in appropriate settings, become the mode of the day? Ah well, I may be a bit old-fashioned. I still remember matching hats, bags, shoes and gloves for Easter! LOL...

    1. Thank you, Kathy. I remember matching hats, bags, shoes and gloves at EVERY Sunday Mass.

    Happy birthday. While sometimes I feel older it seems that I always trail you by a year.
    Going to a nice "Tea" dressed as a lady is high on my list. My wife has been to one or two and I have picked her up at one that doubled as a shower and the atmosphere was heavily laden with all things feminine.
    Earlier this week I went to a coffee house for a poetry reading event. I joined another T person who was dressed in high and tight girl jeans, 3" sued booties over hose, a velour top with nice jewelry.
    I wore an animal print dress, 3" suede heels, beige pantyhose and a black blazer. The coffeehouse poetry session drew a somewhat bohemian crowd wearing mostly jeans and sweaters so I was the nicest dressed person. I sat in front and felt at home and at ease listening to the poets read their works.
    I think a tea house would present a better chance to dress up for the event.

  3. 'Sfunny, this weekend, my age 70, will exceed my inches height too! many happy returns,

    love, Caro.

  4. Dear Stana,

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, sweetie.



  5. Happy belated birthday, Stana! I hope you have a nice one and many more. Enjoy the "tea" party! I'm sure you'll look smashing!

    Thanks again for all you do.

  6. Happy Belated BD, Stana. Tea sounds so nice, I actually like tea, but dressed up with a whole bunch of ladies, thats a fun afternoon. Hard to overdress for that so knock them out and we want pictures!

    1. I think I dressed appropriately (for a change). LOL
