~ MaiTai Collection news ~ 

The scarf travel pochette now comes in a new version, which has a zippered compartment for scarf rings or small jewellery items in the back. It  no longer comes in a gift box (although the gift box can still be purchased as an additional item). The previous model (without zip compartment and box) can be purchased with a 20% discount as long as stocks last.



Also very happy to introduce two more colors in the 'Jardins de Nîmes' range

miel/saffron

vert nil

  4. What a happy and colorful collage. It is so inspiring to see how women worldwide style themselves. I know I've taken a page from Faux Fuchsia's playbook in wearing that necklace with my scarf. And last winter I embraced sequins and bought a sequined skirt! Thanks FF! And I know I've copied one of Macs knotting techniques. Thanks fellow scarf-lovers . . . and you Tai for including me!

  5. Fun and nice to see all these beautiful ladies with the same love of sophisticated accessories and having so much more in common than only H ! Thanks MT.
    Thinking about my Christmas wishes…. Do you think I could add a smaller scarf pochette for 2 ou 4 scarves (that we could carry in our handbag) with this so useful little compartment that you cleverly added to your It- pochette ? Thanks so much Christmas Father, I promise I’ll be a nice girl !

  14. Hi

    Off in a weeks time for a break in the sun with a friend to Ibiza (the quiet part!), the weather looks changeable so deciding what to pack is difficult.

    I have been scrolling your Pinterest Capsule collection board, its an excellent way to find ideas. I save them to my holiday packing ideas board on my pinterest... what would we do without Pinterest ?!?

  15. Hi Maitai!
    Congratulation on your new pochettes! Beautiful collage and all the ladies look wonderful.
    Also, when I grow up, I want to have the courage to cut my hair short like Marla in the OC! She is the only one (along with Charlize theron) to give me short hair envy...
    Have a sunny weekend,
    Béatrice, Switzerland

    1. Marla in the OC (when already mentioned - tried not to post again, but have not succeeded again) - I can recognize most of the accessories on the photos while I cannot recognize your necklace. Marni? Hm...would you please share the brand, this bugs me all the time...cannot come to solution... :)
      Best, Lea

      Delete
    2. Oh, Beatrice you are so sweet! Charlize does rock a short do--I thought she looked positively fierce at the Academy Awards. Robin Wright also looks amazing in short hair. My cut was actually inspired by Halle Barry.

      Lea--the necklace is from Anthropologie. It's called the Verdura. It is as close as I'll ever get to owning any Verdura jewels! I bought it on sale last winter . . . to go with a Marni dress, also bought on sale!

      Delete
    3. Couldn't agree more with you on how fabulous Marla looks with her short hair, dear Béatrice!

      Lea, you always ask the questions everyone wants to know about, you are a gem!

      Thank you Marla for being so sweet and gracious <3 Your fabulous styling makes the necklace beyond gorgeous (love the last picture in particular, so stunning with the Paridaiza)!

      Delete
    4. Dear MaiTai, I always try not to ask and to kepp my mouth shut...but cannot stand and finally I ask - I cannot beat my curious nature :)
      Dear Marla - thanks for replying about the necklace. I agree with MT, your styling is very nice and makes the necklace even nicer.
      If it is of any comfort, my closest position to Verdura was - my vegetables ("verdura" means "vegetable" in Italian, as far as I know). Otherwise...no verdura :)
      As a feedback - in last collage, you advised me about Marni for HM outfit and I managed to find the items afterwards. Wearing them and happy with both :).
      We are such an inspirational and supportive group, I enjoy this blog very much :)
      Thanks MaiTai, hugs to everybody. Lea xx
