Cheap and chic - C'est la fête, part one

My 10 EUR market find sweater is still holding up fabulously, and today I teamed it up with my current favorite scarf, the 'C'est la fête' 70 carré. To make up for last week's lack of posts, there will be a couple of variations coming over the next few days.



Capsule pieces: black jeans and grey sweater
Shoes: black ankle boots
Accessories: Hermès 'C'est la fête' 70 carré (CW12), Farandole necklace and black Birkin. MT Collection horn bracelet in noir
Scarf tying method: criss-cross knot (one end left longer than the other). Please click here for a how-to
Scarf ring: MaiTai Collection scarf ring in moyenne light Mother of Pearl

    I (finally) got one, after lusting for it for three years… I'm supposed to wait till Xmas to wear it though… I just can't wait!

    1. Before this mini series I would have never thought red jeans could be a great winter's evening outfit, but the experiment proved me wrong. So glad it did, and so glad you enjoyed the combo too. Nice to be Clf twins with you, and have a wonderful Sunday too!

  6. Dearest MaiTai,
    What a grey lover's dream outfit! Your grey sweater is one of the most beautiful shades of grey, and so very beautiful on you. Love the luscious Farandole draped behind the magical Clf. You are stunningly chic, dear MaiTai. Blowing you big December kisses xox

  7. ...you have me already figuring my outfits for next season. Handy to know red jeans go so well with a grey sweater.
    Many thanks, Smarty pants ;-)
    Cheers to you, Mandy

  8. This scarf is gorgeous, as is your delicious black Birkin. I was a little late to the world of Hermès scarves (preferring the oversized chiffon ones characteristic of Alexander McQueen), so missed the opportunity to buy C'est la fête. I am therefore hoping it is one day re-released in new colour ways. Fingers crossed!
