  3. I love these capsules with the subtle changes in colours, which create such different looks. Very classic/classy. The gray sweater was a real find, it just blends so effortlessly into all the different looks, and enhances them. Is this a different cw of CLF?

  4. As always, you look fantastic. Unfortunately, it is so cold in Vienna at the moment, so I have to wear more than just a sweatert. Would it be possible to show a variant with blouse (or shirt) and sweater to us. Thank you and have a beautiful third advent week - Sanne

  6. It seems we're twins in both cws! Love the combo here, drawing on the jewel tones. Also fabulous with grays (like the sweater and your your stunning Viviers) and even creamy beiges. Lovely as always, have a great week!

    2. Very much looking forward to the fabulous necklace shots - the more the better. And you always surprise by your combinations - and how fabulously they fit into a whole outfit, which is really a whole. Lea

    3. So happy you enjoy the variations, dear Lea! Exploring them is such source of fun and joy. There'll be a few necklace moments coming up in the the next couple of weeks, hope the snaps will turn out fine :-)

  8. Dear Mai Tai,
    I too am a huge fan of CLF and ironically have the same two colors you have....but must confess to having a third!! Love what you have done with all of them....they are so much fun to wear!!
    I do believe your color way on the last posting should be 05 not 12.
    Cant wait to find out what " H " boxes are under your christmas tree this year.....wishing you and your beautiful family a joyous holiday season!!
    Oranges hugs and kisses,

    1. The double twin club is growing, and it looks like you are leading the triple one! Would love to know which one your third CW is..

      Thank you for spotting the error re the CW, it's already corrected :-) In a further twist, the above should really be called prune/marine/gris fumée, like on the lesailes video at h.com. But for some reason, it then got mixed up with CW05, and it is now called bleu nuit/gris/prune. Originally, I wanted the bleu nuit/gris/prune (where the horseman wears red boots), but when the above arrived I loved it so much that I decided to keep it instead..

      Delete
    2. Well its so ironic you should say that as I asked my SA to get me o4 prune/ marine/ gris fumee AND o5 Bleu nuit/ gris/ prune.... (at least these are the way that H is ticketing them..)..but she sent both... one like yours above with prune background, the other is more navy and grey with the prune hat and boots. Loved them both so much....kept them so have one to wear with prunes and grey the other with navy and grey!
      What a wonderful print for all of us to enjoy!!!

      Here is your challenge my dear Mai Tai...create a new tie method for vintage 70 that shows the middle of the scarf.....the horse and rider are so delightful especially with the prune hat and boots but need to be able to wear it so that PART is visible....my money is ON YOUR ability to figure that out!!!
      When you do please share with all of us CLF fans!!!
      Hugs and kisses....

  9. Dearest MaiTai,
    And just when I thought part one couldn't get any better….how much I love this! Congratulations on a gorgeous sibling Clf! Adore both colorways tied with the favorite criss-cross <3 And the lovely Ms. Bolide is a most perfect companion. Thank you so much, dear MaiTai, you are truly spoiling us. Much love to you with a million twinkling hugs xxx

    1. So happy you are enjoying this series, my dearest Scarf Enthusiast! I simply could not resist adding the sibling, and the criss-cross is my favorite knot for these <3 Hope you are enjoying a wonderful festive season, blowing silver stars your way xx

  10. Dear MaiTai,
    I love every single piece of this outfit. Especially, how this gorgeous scarf includes every color of your outfit - it's the perfect accessory. The bracelet as well, of course. So elegant without 'much ado' ;-)... you are always an inspiration. Thank you!
    Warm wishes,
    Birgit

    1. Thank you, liebe Birgit! I particularely enjoyed putting this outfit together because it gives some trusted old staples (jeans and bracelets) a completely new look. Mit herzlichen Grüssen x

  12. Congrats on your new CLF Maitai - we are scarf twins!! Mine is identical to yours but is cw is 05 on the label - 04 has red boots? Hermes did have a mix up with the 04 and 05. Anyway I adore how the stars almost twinkle off this cw and the design is just amazing! I have been trying to find cw01 ciel with little success as they seem to be sold out everywhere - it seems the skeleton horseman has quite a following and it would not surprise me if Alexander McQueen has an influence. I hope you enjoy your new addition. SA:-)

    1. Congratulations to you too, dear SA! So nice to be twins with you. The CW mix up must have led to many surprises, but since all the colors are beautiful, it does not matter that much in the end! I meant to order the one with the red boots (having taken my clues from lesailes), but when this one arrived instead, I fell for it immediately. Enjoy yours too!

    2. Seems Hermes really did make a major blunder with the cws!! I agree they are all fabulous in their own way and the design is just a WOW!

  13. I love this scarf! It is so different and in a way really funny! Like the way to dress it up :-) Have a very lovely week, dear Maitai! :-)

  14. Congratulations on a new cw of C'est la Fete! I've just received mine, in cw 04 and I'm completely on cloud 9 too! May I ask you a favor? Would you please model it with a Mors scarf ring? Thank you in advance. xx
