    You put together items with a lot of style. Where did you find the shoes? Do the shoes have a model number or name?

    The scarf matches so beautifully.

  3. Yet another absolutely gorgeous and absolute inspiring post! I've come here for years now, yet you're still always able to amaze me. <3 But - (and I guess I may speak for most ladies here ;-) - we want to see Ms. K. in full action; meaning "on" you. And don't tell us she's shy. :D hugs, Macs

  4. PS: I just had to come back for another glimpse and wanted to add that I truly love the way you wear the scarf with shawl ring - stylish and at the same time elegant chicness at it's best! :D

  5. I am a huge fan of mixing patterns and I am delighted you have shared this post. The soft neutrals are wonderful on you and made very up to date with the snakeskin print on the tunic. Your etoupe Kelly is the icing on the cake. Nice to see the patent RV's again, too.

    1. You have been since long on the APdE list, my dearest Manuela. Now, I only need to spot them! So far, no surprise re-issues this year, I was secretly hoping for a windfall similar to last year's to happen.. Have a most wonderful and cosy Sunday!

  7. Well, you do keep playing my song! Have been waiting to see the new RV flats with your new etoupe Kelly! Those two were meant for each other! Throw in the other capsule pieces and the pairing of accessories, you have a look that cannot miss! As much as I love seeing you and your wardrobe post today, the first picture of the church courtyard is the grabber for me. It is beautiful in it's textural contrast and coloration. Suitable for framing I think! Thanks for the treat to start my day<3
    Relaxing hugs dear friend, T xx

    1. I thought you'd like the combo, dearest Trudye! The church courtyard is a beautiful and peaceful place, and the church itself a little treasure, going back to the 9th century. In spring, falcons are nesting in it's tower. Enjoy a happy and peaceful Sunday, ma chère amie.

  12. Dear MaiTai,

    this again looks amazing!
    I really love these colours and would like to ask if the wonderful "Aux Pays des Épices" is still available in the H boutiques?

    If not, do you have an alternative for it, maybe Reves d´Escargots in greige?

    Thanks a million and warm hugs,
    Barbara

    1. Dear Barbara,

      The APdE is from the AW 2009 collection, and I have not seen it around for a long time. The RdE in the neutral CW is beautiful, but I have not seen this one either lately. The best would be to let your SA do a search for you.

      With all the gorgeous neutrals in the current FSH window displays I am having high hopes for the SS2013 collection..

      Wishing you the best of luck!
