until....
until I walked into a H shop two weeks ago, not looking for anyhing in particular (well, secretly I was hoping to find the green c/w of "tous les bateaux...." in cashmere/silk, at least to SEE it!... but , none of that in sight... so I was just walking around keeping a lovely SA "busy" and then, all of a sudden, I saw this precious lady, hanging on a wall net to the register... almost forgotten, blending with the wood panels on the wall....

May I present to you, from last winters collection:

Cavalcadour Clair de lune
Excuse me while I completely unplaster myself from the computer screen Pegase. Wow, fainting and swooning and now I wish I had not passed up the chance last year. Bet it looks awesome on you...

Ok ladies. I thought I would kick off theme week by confessing I have not always been faithful to H. Every time I promise myself I'm going to stop seeing these other "women", I find it impossible to kick them out of my life. One is so soft and was my first. Her name is Miss Etro. The other is so beautiful and her name is Miss Pucci. I have been good and have been very serious about Miss H for the past year, but from time to time I still go out to dinner with these other ladies. I hope my confession will give others the courage to come forward with their stories. :)

Here she is...Miss Etro

And Miss Pucci.

Super gorgeous on you dooneybaby - love the CK dress too. Must resist the temptation for more aqua silks. One of three colorways I am considering. Oh dear, you make it impossible to resist.

Scarfies,
It's me again rambling about my newly-found love for Maharajas, LOL. The other day, I was reading the Fall 2012 scarf story booklet, out of curiosity I did a search on the jewelry pieces featured on the scarf and I was hooked!!! I'm very happy to learn something new from the scarf and I thought I'd share with you all (as always, feel free to ignore my post if you hate long posts).
Ok so basically the design features many of Indian classic jewelry pieces, among them are:
- The Arya necklace (btw, I hate turtle neck anything and I did think of a layered wedding cake when I first saw this, LOL)
on the scarf

and in real life:


- The Bazuband (upper-arm bracelet)
on the scarf

I know the words "a little" and "cheating" should never be in the same sentence, but here's a little cheating with Pucci.

I love all of the research that you put into this, Chestnutty, just fabulous!
I used to work in India and it's a place and culture very dear to my heart.
The Kundan jewelry on the Maharajas is so prolific and brings me fond memories of the weddings and festivals I went to.
Though I wasn't swooned at all by Maharajas when it first came out, I don't gravitate to wearing these busier designs, lately I'm really feeling the love the more I look at it and so my SA is on the hunt for me

This scarf looks so classic Pucci! Love the pinks in it and your sweater pairs with it perfectly.

Grande Tenue today.
I know, still off topic. I'm trying to gather enough strength to cheat on H. I've cheated many times before but I've never been caught on camera.
