  2. Love your capsule pieces. Brown goes with so much and your burgundy top from KW is so pretty. I wish we had a store comparable in the US. Your new pants are just lovely ... looks like they can be worn with many colors. Lovely as always, dear MaiTai!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Glad you like the new pants and top (KW ships to the States, you can always contact their customer service for details). Have a wonderful weekend too!

  4. Very nice, dear. I love the versatility of Coupons Indiens. One of my MT favorites was with the white button down. It's such an amazing scarf. Wish that I had one. :-)

    Warm orange hugs, dear.

  5. Dearest Mai Tai, We are Ebene twins! Well...I actually JUST passed it along to my niece who is forever raiding my closet! She came over wearing a lovely Hermes scarf tied around her head, and as I complimented her on it...I realized it was one of mine!!
    Adore the slacks!! These looks remind me very much of Riviera-a-go-go...very groovy and hip~ (as always!)
    Question: Are your chocolate ballet flats by Chanel?
    It's a holiday weekend here in the U.S....these outfits would be perfect for the casual parties to come.

    1. Your lucky niece! LOL re the scarf tied around her head...Love the pants for the same reason, they'll do wonders for my staples. The flats are from a tiny shoe shop in the rue du Bac called Kevin Dorfer. I can't believe Labour Day has come around already, have a great holiday weekend!

  7. Twin hugs to you too, my dearest MaiTai. This is one of my favourite scarves and, like Macs, I owe having it to you:).
    Thank you <3.
    Love its combination with the rio red twist top. Perfect for Autumn.
    Do you think the rose madder twist top would match the scarf as nicely as the rio red top?
    A wonderful weekend to you, my dear. Manuela

    1. So glad I was able to help with the CI back then, and that you still love it as much as I do. Wish I'd have a magic hat where I could pull out a few more, for all the scarf sisters who are still looking for it! Re the twist top, I think rose madder (like almost any pink or red) would go beautifully with the CI! Have a wonderful weekend too <3
