  2. I have to admit that I had doubts about CLF, having never seen it IRL by the way, but I am enchanted by it now.
    Very classic and elegant, with a hint of mischief :)
    Love both looks,

  3. Both great looks as always.

    I managed to get this very scarf in Bond Street, London today and I'm thrilled. I've been looking for something in this colour way since missing out on the La Femme a few seasons ago.

  9. I love the 70 carre, is the CLF vintage silk, even though its from the mens collection?

  10. There is a saying that "copying somebody is the most flattering compliment". Of course there is no way anybody could ever reach your standards, but once again you've been a wonderful inspiration! Not only with your classic look, but also your creative idea of turning one outfit into two, simply by changing the pants. Wishing you a lovely week - your dhclt, Macs ;-)

  12. This beatiful scarf! It's a bit like the old designs that I love. And the elegant combinations. Only, when I try to copy, it never looks so exclusive. Schould it be because of me? ;-)
    Kindest regards - Sanne
