A Game of Croquet
This summer, tennis seems to be the favored sport for social distancing. But we prefer croquet, the game of “fresh air and friendship.” A leisurely afternoon on the lawn requires just the croqueterie (mallets and so on) and a spirited crew who dress for the occasion in straw boaters and favorite Jane’s Vanity camisole sets. A riot of color on a field of green.
Although the origins of croquet are obscure, it possesses an ironic element that has been a source of mirth in literature and art. Note Lewis Carroll’s flamingo version in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland or Alfred Hitchcock’s sinister Cold War metaphor in the film North by Northwest. Check the internet for quite elaborate rulebooks (or make up your own).
And won’t you look nice while sorting it all out. Show some leg in a choice of Gilda & Pearl silk camisole sets with spaghetti strap tops and matching shorts. As in croquet, you can keep to color with one of the following: The bias-cut Sophia Rose Gold Camisole Set, the Sophia Jade Cami Set in teal, the Creme Brulee Pearl Set in white with racer back and sweet appliques, the Midnight Cognac Camisole Set in gold with black lace trim, and the Gina Camisole Set in black with high-cut tap pants.
Champagne seems the perfect drink for croquet. We toast its stately pace and photogenic setting for alluring team colors from Jane’s Vanity.
