  1. Lovely collage, truly. But, what got me excited is the new shawl pochette that you kind of sneaked in at the end . . . like we wouldn't notice it! Ha! Well, I did, and I've ordered.

    This is wonderful, especially since those darn cashmere GM's are so fragile and so expensive. Thanks so much for helping us protect our investments.

  13. Thank you once again for showcasing these very chic woman. I've gleaned more than a few inspiring ideas here. TWO horn cuffs on one wrist! Picotin with a scarf handle! Off to play......

    BTW Macs picture of the vert olive Waterfall with the blue dress is a lovely color mix. I usually don't wear olive but wear a lot of blue. Will that color be available again? Please say yes.....

  17. Dear MaiTai, so thrilled to be in your collage, loved seeing all the different scarves and scarf rings and how the ladies style them -I must confess to a bit of a style crush on Anne, I love the way she has tied her Poste and Cavalerie scarf in a twist knot, so chic. And now winter is coming, this WILL be the year I indulge in a gorgeous MaiTai fur collar....

  22. Dear ladies, you are all glowing and look fabulously.
    If I could add my tiniest grain of salt regarding the MaiTai collection - as already written in the comments, it are fabulous items. Smiled at the ziplock solution (oh, I used a simple plastic bag for freezer, which is even less in line with H scarves) - never more, I cannot imagine that habit coming back again. A pochette is an elegant and H-worthy solution and I believe the new GM pochette will follow the same route.
    Hugs to all of you, Lea

  25. Hello Mai Tai!

    So happy to see all your postings! Looks like you had a great holiday. I'm unable to take a long trip this summer due to work so seeing your postcards was like having a holiday in the mind. To think that this time last year I was having so much fun in Provence. So thank you for all the visual treats! Your postings are always a nice read on my work trips.

    I was busy travelling to Taipei; Hong Kong; and still 2 more trips to go. In HK, I managed a Pegasus Zebra shawl in the colour I had wanted. It'll go perfectly with the shawl ring from you, and now your new shawl pochette is a must have to complete the set! So delighted to have another excuse to 'shop' again. =)

    Your collage is so inspiring; everyone looked so lovely here! I'm just laughing in delight about all the comments. To think that there's a little girl in everyone of us. When we were young, we dressed up dolls; and then we dress our daughters but we never forget dressing up us! Ladies, keep inspiring!

    Do enjoy the rest of your summer. I'll be busy planning my autumn wardrobe with your furs. LOL!!

    Lots of love,
    Jasmine
