  1. Wunderschöne Kombination, wenn denn der Sommer heuer noch einmal vorbei schaut. Vom Farbschema: Sommer- oder Wintertyp? Oder wie ich ein Sommer, dem die Winterfarben einfach besser gefallen?

  3. It might be I do not understand the numbering system, however, I think this might be Capsule wardrobe #99 ? Namely, I have decided to celebrate # 100 buying one H scarf more --- well, well, any reason is good... Have you seen any spring scarves in your boutique nearby? If so, pls do whisper the early news...
    Beautiful ensemble, love the colours on your. Shawl ring is so helpful, I also find it nice for 90 carres, because it holds them in a "relaxed" way.
    Love, Lea

    1. Sorry, of course I referred to autumn scarves, as spring scarves are mostly in shops already. Namely, I heard that some autumnal scarves have been seen, but I have no specific knowledge of it...Your word of wisdom would be appreciated :-)

    2. The previous capsule post was misnumbered, so sorry my dear Lea. So two more to go.. please share which scarf will mark the occasion! Re the AW colIection, I have not seen any of them in person yet. Can’t believe it’s already this time of year when we wait for the new designs! Have a lovely remaining week ~

    3. Of course it is not an important think, but I really told my husband (who is flying from Europe to Canada on this, next Monday) that the reason to buy the scarf for me is "the 100th capsule wardrobe post of my scarf&wardrobe hero" (well, all other excuses have been already spent before, for the previous scarves :-). Now, I can only keep the mouth shut. Moral of the story: any excuse is welcome (in this case). The first fall designs started slowly arriving in the boutiques, I think, at least I heard so...we'll see soon. Love, Lea

  4. So beautiful! Love the way you coordinated all the bright colors MaiTai. Every way the shawl is knotted brings out more and more details in the pattern. Fantastic. You chose very well and were very right about how versatile it is.

  5. So lovely! You put outfits together so beautifully and have taught me a lot from your posts. Thank you.

    I'm trying to decide which color hardware for a blue clic-clac. Is yours in silver/palladium or gold plated hardware?

    Warm regards,
    Jaime

    1. So happy you find the posts helpful, thank you Jaime! Re the hardware question, I would go for the color which matches the rest of your jewelry. I mostly wear white metal, so nearly all of my hardware is palladium.

  6. Pimpante et lumineuse ! This Vibrant Pink suits it perfectly. I need one of these (to tell you the truth I already placed an order this morning). Thanks for the trick. Have a nice week dear MaiTai.

    2. Twins? So nice to have "sisters" all around. I'll think of you, MaiTai and Manuela, when wearing these bright colours! Quelle belle harmonie de pensée et probablement la même philosophie concernant nos vies car cela ne se limite pas à un look ;) C xx

    3. I wrote "That makes two of us" to your "I need one of these" to the lovely 3/4 in vibrant pink, dear Catherine and yes, we will be twins one day soon :) M xx

    4. Chère Catherine, so true and well said... I always feel there is more that unites us here than our shared love for Hermes and scarves. Will be thinking of my soul sisters too when wearing these vibrant and happy colors! xx

  8. Nothing like seeing these lovely items worn by you, dearest Mai Tai. They go so well with your most beautiful Ceintures et Liens! That shawl is fabulous on you, my dear<3!
    Do you happen to know how long the long cascade wrap is? Would the short wrap be a nice alternative when one is not as tall as you?
    Have a most wonderful week ahead, dearest MaiTai!
    Manuela xx

    P.S. I wrote one comment before but am not sure if it went through. No need to publish them both as they are alike :)

    1. Thank you for the lovely and sweet compliments, my dearest Manuela, so happy you like the look! My wrap measures 97cm at the longest point, and 83cm at the shortest. The short wrap is quite a bit shorter, but lovely too, especially for summer :-) The front tie wrap might be another alternative, the length seems to be in-between the two. Hugs xx

    1. Blowing pink summer blossoms to you, my dearest Trudye! The new shawl has opened up so many possibilities...suddenly, vibrant pink 'makes sense', while my older wardrobe pieces shiver with excitement to get paired into new and different looks.

  13. Dear Mai Tai,

    Such a pretty color combination and beautiful on you as well! Your souvenir from Venice is lovely, so perfect for spring and summer.

    Your first photo of the bright pink floral bush is just beautiful!

  15. Your new scarf is a treasure! You look sensational in these colours! I love the cascade wrap, and I'm hoping that they ship to the U.S. so I can order one in every shade!!
    Happy week to you~
