Back in the good old days, people worked hard six days a week while Sunday was a sacred day of rest: worship in the morning, and socializing and relaxation in the afternoon. City parks were a favorite destination to see and be seen while on a stroll, a picnic or at a concert. That meant Sunday-best dresses, pearls and gloves for the ladies, ties and coats for the gents, and straw hats all around to protect delicate faces from the sun.
On Sunday, September 21, we will be hosting a Sunday Soirée in San José with a city cruise and tea in St James Park, laid out in 1868 by Frederick Law Olmsted, America’s pioneer landscape architect. Come join us!
About Fashion Friday: Inspired by a 2011 Bike to Work Day challenge sponsored by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, this series highlights the broad range of “dress for the destination” bicycling fashions.
