Scarf profile ~ Chasse en Inde

  2. On the day of my birth, my dear grandmother started some collections for me: Chanel No 5, White Shoulders and Hermes scarves. Over the decades I've collected many Hermes scarves without knowing their names, only that I love colors and/or designs. I can tell I'm going to learn a lot from your blog, and for this I thank you in advance. As for today's scarf, 1986 was the peak of my Hermes fascination and how I missed this scarf with dangling charm is beyond me!
    P.S. I am sharing links to your blog at Twitter, where I post as @ParisGetaways. Many Francophiles, Parisphiles and Hermesphiles would welcome you--join us!

  11. Looking forward to all the scarf profiles.... are you taking requests. My favourite of yours is (your least fav - how could you?) Carre Kantha. I love that scarf, the pinks inspired me and my most recent purchase was a Smelles in pink CW (tres bon!)
