This is really neat! I love the wonderful pictures of her grandmother.
I wasn't going to bother clicking on this (seldom take the time to view videos), but I'm glad I did -- a lovely little film. And what a tradition to begin, buying oneself a Hermès scarf each birthday.
Am I only one not seeing the video link?I've received an Hermes scarf for each birthday and Christmas, and sometimes for Mothers Day- my DH has visited the store with my boys since they were three or so. So, a stack, which I enjoy deeply, because of the beauty and sentiment.
duchesse, here's a direct link to the video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ME6qUTg7GTY
Hmm, its' now showing on your site! This is just how I feel about my HS's; in terms of cost per wear they are exceptional.
I love how she describes that her scarves now smell like perfume from a night out or have lipstick "scars." I'm careful with my scarves, but still use them and know that they'll show that use over time. My grandmother used to say "there's no use having nice things if you don't use them" and it's nice to hear someone else express that the signs of use endear the objects even more.
This is great. I love the connection to her grandmother, and how she has completely adopted the scarf love. I also like her mention of the scarves carrying a hint of her perfume. It's one of the things I love about my scarves, too. I'm not really une femme Hermes, but I do love scarves.
Girlgriot - yes, that connection to her grandmother is so cool; it's what I loved most about the video. With so much rampant materialsm these days, it's nice to take a step back and think about the meaning that certain items might hold for us, and focus on that meaning instead of just mindlessly acquiring.
