Brazil II ~ part two

I guess it's easy to tell how much I adore the Brazil II Gavroche, today wearing it in a simple cowboy knot, which brings out beautifully the feathers and jewel like pearls of the design. I call this scarf my new chameleon, it works with such a great variety of neutrals, picking up on white, beige, brown, etoupe, and grey in all shades and variatons. Here with my recently bought H&M cardie, love the way it drapes, and it was a steal ;-)



One of my favorite pair of earrings, handmade by a dear friend, turned out to be a fabulous match for the scarf, what a happy discovery!

Completing the look with Elephants and Torana enamel bangles.

  1. This really is a chamaleon. Superb! Looks wonderful, too, with the taupe and grey colours. Was made for you as the earrings prove ;-). And the turquoise definitely is a sting of spring coming soon.

  2. Absolument parfait. The grays and étoupe are all perfectly brought together by the subtle splash of colours...et les boucles d'oreille sont superbes.

  3. Dear angolfa and ABG, many thanks for your sweet comments!

    angolfa, I pray the turquoise power prevails, just when I thought winter was finally over, we had the biggest snowstorm in years.. we were snowed under in four hours flat! x

    ABG, merci encore! Les boucles d'oreille are made with antique Swarowski crystals, they are truly magnificent. And they will always remind me of a fabulous day, spend with a wonderful lady <3

  4. I absolutely love the shot of you next to the shot of the earrings - stunning! You are truly glowing and the turquoise tones look so beautiful on you, with the exquisite earrings whilst matching perfectly your eyes...this gavroche is growing on me too :)

  5. Have to agree with lifeatmyfingertips, regarding your special glow! You always look so naturally graceful and never "dressed up". That's the main reason I view you as a role model. It's obvious you love that beautiful gavroche, as you keep playing with it - and the accessories you chose are simply perfect! ;-)

  7. Maitai you look so pretty and fresh in this blue shade. I had a negative experience in Hermes on the weekend. Usually the staff are all so kind and sweet but I struck a Dragon. What do you do in these situations?

  9. hair-mess, between yours and lifeatmyfingertips' comments I'm in danger of getting too inflated to fit through a door, lol! Many thanks for your sweet words <3 And yes, I do love the BII. Soon you will all be sick of it.. counting on you to tell me when to stop! x

  10. Dear Lulu, many thanks for your comment. Happy to hear you like the combo, especially since turquoise is new territory for me :-)

  11. Dear FauxFuchsia, really sorry to hear about your bad experience. H should treat every customer with respect, and a shopping experience there should leave you elevated and happy. The Dragon is obviously ignoring these rules, which is why she should not be working there in the first place. Luckily she is a rare exception (as you've said, the other staff has always been lovely), but sadly the likes of her do still exist. Here is what to do:
    First, don't take it personally. Second, pity her for her bad karma. Third, write a note to the manager of the store, and explain what happened. If the Dragon is there the next time you go (which I hope you will, don't let one bad apple ruin it for you), and all the other SAs are busy, tell her that you will wait until SA xy has become free. Hugs x

  14. Love this gavroche on you MaiTai - it brings out your blues eyes too! Another chameleon indeed-I think another one to look at is the neutral cw of Jardins de Nouvelle Angleterre from AW09.

  16. You too inflated? Never! :-) You are the epitome of class and grace. That doesn't just come from great taste alone. That's within you, just like that wonderful shine of yours! <3, HM
