Linking to Patti’s Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday
A safari dress by Oasis from *bay last year makes its debut due to the *constant* good weather we’re having. I was on a roll then snapping up really good high street dresses for very little. It’s a great fit and even the belt loops are at the right level. I decided to try to use my scarves much more and here is ‘Axis Mundi’ by Hermès as a belt, also here and here. The brown Fendi sandals were also an *bay score. I love the details on the dress and it’s so well made. Sometimes the High Street labels trump the designers. I need to practice folding as I wanted the brown to show a little less.A new to me scarf called ‘Coup de Fouet’, the colourway and pattern is really different to what I currently have and somehow amazingly versatile, that’s the beauty of Hermès, I guess 🙂 I took a very long time to consider which scarf to add to my collection.And making her debut (after geting lots of leather TLC), Miss Kelly 32 in Naturel Chamonix – by coincidence, almost matching my tan leather slippers. I was desperate to find some light coloured slippers for the Summer and was beyond delighted my search was over with these by Cobra Society – me neither, never heard of that brand before! They have a lime green leather piping around the top.The colours here are much more accurate. I would never have put sky blue with khaki but they work fine. I don’t think anyone can produce colours as well as Hermès and that is the main focus for me with scarf selection, or indeed of anything. The pattern is a secondary consideration. At first I didn’t feel the need for more H scarves because I have other scarves I use often enough but it’s the desire for colours that finally made me choose a few more. I can totally understand how one can get carried away.
