Capsule wardrobe #76 - Christmas is coming nearer

These glorious berries reminded me of the Christmas decoration I recently saw in the Village Royal,

where last year's silver and white, and the  previous year's green/gold colour schemes
have been replaced by snow-white trees, decorated with bright red baubles

Walking past, I could not resist taking a quick snap of the festive trees
with an early Christmas present 'from me to me'

Capsule pieces: blue jeans and black sweater
Shoes: black ankle boots
Accessories: Hermès 'La Réale' 90 Carré, 'Optique chaine d'ancre' enamel bracelet and Birkin in black
Scarf tying method: Ascot knot

DS's Advent calendar is still full of tiny parcels... counting the days to Christmas with him!

Wishing everyone a wonderful start into December, and a joyous Christmas, festive and holiday season ahead.

  3. I could not believe when I woke up today - yesterday, after having waited and multiply checked for the possible blog update in the late hours (it is called "dedication", I think) 47 seconds after you launched the above post, I wrote the comment so similar to the Trudye's above post and then did not manage to send it. Well, then I just fell into the bed, with the thought "my waiting was worth it". I would just add I hope to see one more Christmas colour when you return - green of Ms Gemstone. Only an artist can round it up and present it like you are doing. Hugs, Lea

  8. Lovely Christmassy outfit, MT! And congratulations on the wonderful addition to your unique and special collection! xx

  9. A very joyous holiday season to you, too, dearest MT. What a beautiful Christmas scene with the flocked trees and red ornaments. And your "from me to me" present in the red bag, makes me wonder in pins and needles which color you have added to your collection. I would have never thought of pairing La Reale with red slacks, but it looks fantastic! Scarf twins with you on this one, dear.

    Warm orange hugs,
