A visit to The Tailored Tea in Latham, NY

Arun and I went to brunch at The Tailored Tea in Latham, NY. 

I wanted to feel feminine and ladylike, so I chose my purple flower Tiane Novati headpiece by Tara Holmes that I found at Anchor No. 5 Boutique in Troy, NY. 

When I first put on the headband with the floral scarf, I said, "Wow!" It seems like something magical happens when I pair the right accessories with a simple dress. I can't quite put my finger on it. I just feel elegant.

A nice lady seated at another table in the tearoom mouthed "Love your hat" to me. I mouthed "thank you" and smiled from ear to ear! I always feel even prettier when I get compliments from strangers.

The half pot of tea is enough for two people. We ordered two different half pots of tea so we could enjoy the second pot with an after-brunch scone. The atmosphere felt like we were in owner Anne Misir's home enjoying a leisurely breakfast with other families.

When we were there, the restaurant was full of multiple generations of families. It is a place that grandmothers and granddaughters both enjoy! There is even a dress up box full of hats for young ladies to wear while they enjoy their tea.

    1. Lisa, I agree. Red hair is sometimes a challenge to color coordination. Luckily, purple seems to go well with red.

  17. How enchantingly elegant - there's just something about flowers (or one large bloom, as the case may be), whether real or artificial, in one's hair that exudes such a womanly (and very often vintage, too) vibe. You look gorgeous in your bejeweled purple topper, dear Kathleen!
