MaiTai Collection in action #1

A couple of weeks ago, I received a stunning photo from VB, wearing her MaiTai collection waterfall necklace on holidays. It inspired me to ask readers to send me their pics too, hoping to gather all in a 'MT collection in action' photo collage. It has been simply fantastic to receive so many fabulous pics, and seeing everyone's own ways with various items has been a very special and rewarding treat. Thank you so much for participating, dear sushi queen, Anna, lala, lazuli, Laura in Georgia, NiniKnows, J and VB, you are fabulous in every way.

Lala is glamour personified, I have never seen anyone wearing their accessories in such a unusual, bold and striking way, while everything is held together by impeccable taste.

Stunning VB, who's picture below inspired this collage, and who's holiday snaps look like professional pictures take for a MT Collection catalogue

  2. I am so sure, the beautiful collage will receive tons of hooray comments - you all look unbelievably gorgeous! The beuaty of your outfits proves that some pupils learn with so much more success than others (after having seen your photos, it is clear and obviuos that I am among the least successive ones, LOL)! Congrats and hugs to all of you, Lilian

  3. These photos and the ladies in them are absolutely gorgeous and so inspiring! I love your clients' styling, it really makes me think of new ways to wear silk, horn, and beads. MaiTai, your site and your collection has had a tremendous impact on my life stylistically, and it's so fantastic to see how others wear the looks so inventively. I hope you will continue with this as a regular feature. I'm going to do a halter with vest and jeans to teach tomorrow -- what a great idea! XO

  4. Oh I love all this interactive blog stuff!!!! It is wonderful. You have so many chic readers and clients. And they have beautiful hair too. It is so hot here, I'm really going to embrace white this season. x

  5. What a great idea!
    Oh the navy collar is crying out to me, what a beauty it is.

  6. I love this T! Wonderful collage!

  7. Many thanks for the lovely comments on the collage, dear Manuela, Lilian, Dr.V.O, Faux Fuchsia, Bourbon & Pearls and Pointless Cafe.

    Manuela, wishing you a most wonderful weekend too, with lots of sunshine and safe travels <3

    Lilian, I join you in the hooray, but I will have nothing of the least successive pupil!

    Dr.V.O. I find tons of inspiration in the collage too, and very much hoping to receive more pics, it would be wonderful to have them as a regular feature. Love the vest look too, hope your pupils were able to concentrate on their tuition ;)

    FF, you are the queen of interactive blogging, and yes this has been great fun. You embracing white gives a whole new meaning to a ‘white christmas’! Keep cool <3

    Bourbon & Pearls, thank you dear! The collar is a chameleon, depending on the light, it goes from navy to almost purple.

    Pointless Cafe, hello S! Glad you like the collage, it's been some time, but I always enjoyed putting them together.

  8. Dear MT, Haven't posted in a while, but that doesn't mean that I haven't been a regular reader and drooler over your fab pix. Au contraire! When your email appears, I tend to open it first!

    Beautiful contributions by very talented people. Love every picture. Such interesting and professional looking photos. Thia IS the MT catalog!

    Once again, you tempt me. That indigo fox is calling me!

    Congrats to you and all your beautiful contributors!

  9. Oh, I love this collage idea of yours, MaiTai! It's chock full of so many stunning looks and ideas. Many thanks to all who sent in pics. You all look gorgeous!

  10. As Dr. V.O. said, and as you replied MaiTai, I'd love to see this as a regular feature on your blog, too. It's always so inspiring to see how people will wear a scarf, create a new knot, and a big one in my case, open my eyes as to just how versatile a design can be that didn't wow me upon introduction.

    J's picture is so lovely and unique that I hope she'll put it on display in her home.

    And oh that Bleu Indigo is calling my name, but given the weather here, it may only come out for one month of the year. ;-) So happy you liked my photos MT!
