  1. Dearest MaiTai & MaiTaiCollection Models,

    Congratulations on the 10th Annual MaiTai In Action Collage!

    Everyone looks fabulous, and so happy wearing such glowing smiles. (I guess MaiTai Collection has something to do w/ that?!? : )

    Thank you ladies for sharing w/ us your treasures and how you style them--I sure love how you've shown us how to tie loose ends w/ a mini-MTC ring, and how to secure a large volume w/ the grande-MTC ring. Those are just 2 absolute 'must haves' which bridge a gap for scarfies/shawlies.

    Also, since I am just catching up w / the blog....

    Wow, MaiTai Collection "Little Oatie" Bag Insert!!! What genius you are dear MaiTai! The sole reason I have hesitated all these years from buying a Pictoin is the unlined nature of the bag--I don't like small pieces of suede bits all over my purse contents, esp. Kleenex!!!

    But, you have solved this problem w/ a stroke of genius. (as usual, dearest, as usual!).

    Thank you for inventing such clever + practical items, and sharing your world w/ us.

    It's a beautiful thing.

    Wishing you and your family a most Blessed Easter!

    1. Dearest sammie, it’s always so wonderful to see you stopping by! Thrilled you like the inserts, and so nice to hear you refer to the Picotins as ‘Oaties’… this is how I call them too <3 Love ‘Shawlies’, you are ingenious. Have a most wonderful Easter too x

  3. Oh, dearest MaiTai...

    forgot to mention--LOVE the brushed cotton sateen pochettes! they are gorgeous and that shine is just so luxurious!

    ...making it difficult to decide on 100% linen (which is difficult to find these days; most are blends, which do not wear & develop a patina the way 100% linen does)
    ...or the ultra smooth silky 100% cotton, which really heightens the sophisticated soft neutral colors, as well as that cheery hot pink color.

    sheer genius MaiTai!

    such a delight to come here and behold your creations. Thank you MT!!!

  4. I have enjoyed reading your blog for years, simply for the style and beauty as I am not a scarf wearer.

    Until today that is! I came home with an au coeur de la vie in white/red/beige. I now have many hours of practice ahead of me, following your wonderful tutorials.

    Thank you for the inspiration.

    1. A Grande Classique is the most versatile size for 90 carrés, and a honey would be lovely with your CW!

  14. Dear Mai Tai,
    This post could be called Beauties of the World . What a bunch of lovely ladies follow your blogs.
    Your post on leopard skin print was very interesting.
    Previously I was not a fan but I think having seen your styling of same I could be converted!
    Happy Easter.

  25. Question for you gorgeous females -- how do you take such great photos of yourselves? Any tips for my fumble-fingered self? I would love to be included in a future "MaiTai Collection in Action" but my photos turn out blurry!

    1. Hello dear Fifi! If you have an autofocus camera, make sure to focus into your mirror image face. It's best not to use a flash, but to have as much natural light as possible (a good place for the mirror is near a window). Wishing you the best of luck, and hope to include your pictures into collage #11!

  26. Hi Maitai,

    Hope you enjoyed your April so far. So fast that the month is coming to an end. I saw your posting while I was travelling for work and just got back. Thank you for putting me here with all the lovely ladies. It's a delight watching real women in action rather than pencil thin perfect faced models whom we can't relate to!

    While travelling, I can't help but pick up another scarf from Hermes due to the inspiration from you. It has always been a hassle wearing scarves here in Singapore due to the weather, and when we do, we get mistaken for being an airline staff or working in the Japanese departmental stores. However, I started with the maxi twilly and began to get compliments because not many people wears them here. It's really how you wear it, and the designs or the prints. I just bought the Mystique Phoenix from Seoul, and absolutely looking forward to purchasing your scarf rings to go with them. Can't wait but first, I've to stop skiving and finish my work! LOL!!

    Wishing you well and keep inspiring!!

    With best regards,
    Jasmine, in sunny Singapore
