Pairing books with tea (How to Read a Dress)

It’s been a minute since we’ve had a book and tea pairing so let’s have another one, shall we? Today’s book is How to Read a Dress by Lydia Edwards.

How to Read a Dress is a fashion history book. It’s a little on the academic site; the author is a lecturer at a university. I’d recommend this book for beginners, so if you have an advanced degree in fashion history or are Michael Kors this book may be too rudimentary for you. But it’s incredibly fun to read. The book has overviews of the eras between the 16th and the 20th century. There are illustrations and photographs galore; a fashion history lover’s dream of a book.

So, which tea shall we have while reading How to Read a Dress? Since fashion was invented in France, we should have a French tea. Specifically Mariage Frères French Breakfast Tea. It’s an elegant black blend that makes for a beautiful cup of tea in the mornings. What do you think?

Happy Reading!

xoxo, Jane
