  1. Congrats on your first hundred you made - lake of beauty!
    Thanks for so nice post before the absence...these nice outfits and atmosphere makes your blog one of the very places I adore on web...
    Today, I have thought about Dorian Gray - has anyone told you that you have not changed for years, since your first post here? How is it possible?
    I would like to apologize for the obviously wrong info I got from my friend and then presented on your blog - have called and cruised numerous H shops, however, it seems that the AW scarf collection has not touched the stores yet and is kept a well protected secret for the time being.
    Have a nice time away, Lea

    1. Sorry, my dear, I have made another mistake - in the first sentence, I wrote "one of the very places I adore on web", instead "one of the very FEW places I adore on web".
      I really do not visit a lot of places on web and your blog is one of the rare "firm points" I visit every day (cca. 50 times a day :-)
      Sorry the both mistakes.
      Hugs to you, Lea
