Capsule wardrobe #75 - Goodbye Autumn

In the area we live, Plane and Mulberry trees cling on forever to their foliage, and if it wasn't for the calender, it would be hard to believe that December and Christmas are just around the corner.
I'm glad to have already made the Christmas pudding and prepared DS' Advent calender, but as for shopping, I am still very much behind. Looking forward to the weekend though, and the start of decorating the house and outside.

Today I've been wearing the same outfit as a couple of weeks ago in Paris, when meeting with the girls
photo credit: my dear friend J.


Capsule pieces: black jeans and turtleneck sweater
Accessories: Hermès 'Ex-Libris' cashmere shawl, 'Kelly Dog' bracelet and Birkin in black
Scarf tying method: Basic bias fold
Shoes: black Jumping boots




The leaves of the chestnut tree are always the first to go.. goodbye autumn!

 

In the meantime, the Toile de Jouy scarf travel pochettes have arrived back into stock, along with the pochettes in the new Jardins de Nîmes design.

    1. Aww my dear Macs, the lovely J and P are immensely generous and kind souls, and have therefor tremendously exaggerated;-) So happy you like the look though, and wishing you a great rest of the week xx

    2. yeah, right - exaggerated. Thehe! From what I know of both of them (and that's at least a bit ;-) they're very kind but also honestly simply speak their mind. Period! Taking it from there and looking forward to also be able to stroll along the streets of Paris with you by my side one day - sending hugs, me

    1. Chère Myriam, on est d'accord.. si on peut avoir juste un seule couleur, c'est devoir être noir! Le mistral s'est déjà calmé, et il a nous apporté un beau ciel bleu. Amitiés

  3. Oh, dear, those first two pictures almost made me call Air France and book an immediate return flight.

    No need to thank me for the photo, though, my dear. You see, my little camera always does a great job when it has a stunning subject to photograph.

    A big hug to you, my beauty,
    J.

    (P.S. Sending sweet and lovely Macs a big hug, too.)

  4. You are unique and we are priviledged to learn from you. Also, it is beautiful how you round up your posts - they are never "too slim", they do not lack charm, I feel so nice after reading your posts. There is simply a piece of beauty we can enjoy and return again to enjoy again. If you allow me, I would like to give you all compliments for your collection as well - it grew up with time and now it is truly a nice, stylish, rounded up collection where anyone can recognize style and attention to details (with the best possible model to show us all its beauty). All congratulations for its uniqueness and beauty. I like your outstanding style, beautiful collection, you are helping me very much to edit my own style. Thanks for it. Lea

    2. Thanks a lot, it really makes me happy. You have made so many days in my life when I was selecting the accessories and enjoying the sights reminding me of you and your talent to see the details and find beatuy in them - therefore it is nice to contribute to your good mood saying the truth. So nice to hear you collection is your pride and joy - it truly looks that way, one can feel that there is so much love behind it. I hope nobody ever will try to copy it, as the substance, love behind it cannot be copied and transferred, I just feel it that way (while owning and wearing some of your beautiful items). Nice hello to your friends - I can only imagine how you enjoyed your trip, beautiful and stylish. Hugs, Lea
