April 2014 Instagramy Post

Spring is here and don't you think pink is her color?

I like this pink Emilia Wickstead ensemble.  

I like this pink teapot cupcake.

I could imagine wearing that outfit while eating that cupcake while sitting on these Cath Kidston oilcloth covered chairs.

Underneath this pink cherry blossom tree of course.

Mews News Renovation Update - Part 6

And exhale....
That was more for me than for you.
I have been avoiding writing this and last month I didn't even bother doing an update.

Long story short - everyone has run out of steam.
Not just the builders but me too.

Have you heard of the 80 / 20 rule otherwise known as the Pareto principle?
Well that is what is happening now.
My builders can build a whole new floor but they can't seem to finish up the last 20 percent of the job done. 
Mind you this is very common so nothing newsworthy.

My First Hermes Scarf - Les Clés / The Keys 90 cm Twill by Caty Latham

While unpacking another one of the endless boxes the other day,
 I came across my first very own Hermes Scarf.
It is an afternoon I will always fondly remember, 
I had just turned 21 and my mother and I were in Paris. 

 We went into the flagship Hermes store and she surprised me by telling me that I could have my very own bag.
As was the custom "back in those days" and still for some, 
a scarf would be tied to the handbag.

An example of he classic BCBG fashion of tying scarves to bags
(Not my bag) 
My mother being in a generous mood told me to go and choose one.
I think if she weren't so busy browsing herself that she would have "suggested" something for me.
