    2. Hi Manuela,

      I never pay attention to names so thank you for the info. After seeing your picture, I am inspired to take my bag out of hibernation and use it now! That bag has a very pleasing shape and the suede interior is luxuriously soft. I usually wear it with a matching LV belt. Thank you so much! Emily :-)

  6. oh gosh, I am so happy to be among such glam ladies in this collage, thank you so much MaiTai. I am loving this post, but it is of course fuelling my scarf lust horribly, so many lovely scarves!! Really pleased also to see the photos of the delicious packaging of the MaiTai goodies, I was so impressed when my scarf ring arrived so beautifully packaged but also almost a bit ashamed I wasn't giving it as a present, the packaging was so lovely - don't worry, I got over the guilt quickly !!

  14. I love these collages, Mai Tai! Every time you post one, I am compelled to go to my closet, take out scarves and rings, and start experimenting. Rita, I especially love your head-scarf, you look smashing, and I want to try it! Whoever is from Alabama in the collage, Hello! I'm from 'Bama, too, although based in Texas right now. Looking forward to the next collage.

  15. Thanks so very much for including me in such glam company . . . and for the shout-out! I never tire of seeing how women 'round the world style themselves. And I love seeing all the different scarves. Love this blog and all the wonderful comments. It really is a small world after all!

    BTW--those organizers are the bomb! Seriously. They are so beautifully made with lovely detailing. No more digging for stuff. A place for everything and everything in it's place! Woo hoo!
    Ladies, FYI the Birkin 35 size works with VBH's Vault.

    1. Marla, as I like your style and it is often close to what-I-would-like-to-wear, do you have any web site where you "exhibit" your ensembles? Unfortunately, I am not in your area to "play" with you...
      Compliments to all other ladies too, you are all beautiful in your own "fashion worlds"...
      Best, Lea

    2. Hope you will be part of #12, my dearest Marla! Love your combinations, you always come up with such great ideas and color combinations. Very happy you like the organizer, and so great to know the Birkin 35 fits a VBH Vault too! xx
