Tennis Anyone?

My friend Blue Carreon and I both bought wooden tennis racquets at the flea market yesterday.  Mine is displayed in my blue and white porcelain umbrella stand in my entry.  If I tried displaying a new tennis racquet, it would definitely not have the same effect.  I miss the days before plastic and bright colors became the norm.  When people actually worse white to play tennis.  That’s probably why I love this photos spread of model Anouck  Lepère in Elle Italia.  Now that’s chic.

    Love it! Very reminiscent of Chanel meets the Royal Tenenbaums!

    Color was just coming to tennis during my competitive days.

    A complete snot, I only wore WHITE. It stood out.

    Loved winning in WHITE.

    Played with a Davis Classic II. In the garage & untouched since those days. Kept 2 of the dresses, one an eyelet cotton cloth from Bahamas and another just like Chris Evert wore.

    Ha, thanks for the memories. Decades since I’ve thought of them.

    Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

    Heather, love this post! I just did a post a few weeks back about vintage tennis style, mainly 70s-80s, so it was fun to see yours. I really miss that period, with all the stripes and headbands and white. This fashion spread really captures the best of that era.

    Love your blog. If you want to see my post it’s here:
