Sshhh...don't tell le mari but I just bought myself a Boxing Day present. ;-) It's the Brise de Charme shown above. The designer is Julia Abadie, and it was originally issued in 1990. I had wanted to purchase a scarf from the Hermés boutique so that I could get the personalized scarf-tying instruction, but a) I didn't see any there that spoke to me, b) the sales associates were less than enthusiastic about helping me, and c) I thought it might be more fun to find something "vintage."
The scarf above is from Luxury-Scarves.com. I'd seen this website recommended most recently by Style Spy, and have been perusing their wares for the last couple of weeks. The colors of the Brise de Charme caught my eye yesterday, and going on the premise that "She who hesistates loses the treasure," I clicked Purchase. I'll post more pics once my lovely arrives.
