  6. Just beautiful, MaiTai. You do such a wonderful job on these collages. It is exciting seeing so many gorgeous scarves (and the wearers)...and seeing them worn in various ways with your lovely products. I am really dreaming of a waterfall necklace now. Merci!

    Silly me...I forgot to update you about my blog change. Stepping My Way to Bliss was retired and a new one started. But no worries, if anyone travels to Stepping there is a link that will take them to Vintage French Chic. The biggest change? I am no longer Bliss : ).

    Take care...enjoy your couple days off. xo Heather

  11. You, ladies, look beautiful. Can I ask Marla in the OC about her dress - which brand is it?
    The dress is truly amazing (along with the necklace) and I cannot recall who created it...sorry the ignorance and TIA.
    Thanks, Lea

    1. Lea-- Thank you for your compliment. As Faux Fuschia would say: I luff it 11/10! The dress is actually two pieces and is Marni for H & M. Gotta love "cheap chic." It is actually very well made! I thought about camping out at my local H & M to get it (my DH is so sweet he even offered to camp out and hold my place in line) but decided we're too old for that! Ebay to the rescue!
      Best, Marla

    2. Marla - thanks for your answer, which was a big surprise to me! I was 96% sure it is Prada! You look so gorgeous in your top and skirt, I must find and buy (already have located the seller, LOL). Your comment they are well made helps a loooot. Hoope they will work nice for me too. Thanks again. Lea

      Delete
    3. You're most welcome, Lea. It does look a bit Prada-like. While it is well made, be aware that the black edging at the base of the top and the skirt band are just a little cheesey. Just a little. The hand of the cotton fabric is beautiful. The sizing is European (or contemporary fit). Good luck with your search. -- Marla

    4. Dear Lea, I could not agree more with you on Marla's stunning look :-)

  12. Thank you, dearest MaiTai for doing the collage once again. I enjoy seeing how other women wear their scarves and how they use their scarf rings. I see a few scarf twins, which I always enjoy. :-)

    Gina, I love your bold and summery choice of pairing the lime green jacket and top with the bright pink PdM!

    And Iazuli, I have such hair envy. My hair will never behave as beautifully as yours.

    Many thanks to all who contributed.

    Orange hugs,
    CS

    2. Yes, they are! I always study the scarf colors, how they are paired, and of course, tied. I am always in awe! And I also love Macs' and Marla in the O.C.'s dresses. You have some very stylish readers, dear.

      Warm orange hugs, dear.
