a new watch and some other goodies

  1. LOL, do not adjust your screen, it's all in black and white (I think I need an injection of colour soon!)

    I have been so very lucky this year - my first Birkin from Paris and some goodies from the Paris sale. In between times I have also bought some new bits and pieces.

    I've fancied a large chunky watch for more casual wear for some time. I already have a Kelly watch and an arceau stainless steel watch which are both quite neat and formal so I thought a capecod double tour in medium would be good and solid. I alread y ahve a barenia double tour strap fro my Kelly so I chose an etoupe double strap for my new Capecod - the colour works well with the watch face and I hope etoupe will work with all my clothes (mostly black) The etoupe looks quite dark in this pic - it's often looks much lighter in real life:

    When I was in Monaco I picked out a bangle for my Christmas present to myslef, I had wanted this for a long time, then of course, you never see one, lol so I was glad to find it. It's called (I think) quadrige or quadrigue perhaps:

    The Rose's blog convinced me I needed the pochette version of champs de Courses scarf and I tracked one down last week:

    Finally, (also thanks to Rose's blog - it's costing me a fortune, lol) I really wanted to see the new 70cm cotton scarves and when I bought my watch in London last week I also took home a new scarf 'tennis' in yes you've guessed it, black and white, lol:

    The white is quite daring for me :rolleyes: as I don't like it in silk scarves on me but I thought the cotton would look good for the summer. I sometimes like to show the name on my scarf and it's irritated me on some designs that the Hermes name is on the opposite side of the label so that if you fold in the label on the bias, the Hermes name will always be hidden. On the tennis design, there is a tennis ball in each corner and each ball has the Hermes name on it so you need not to mind showing the name. I love the little silver 'clou de selle' charm in the corner.

    LOL, I'm now totally broke and need to start saving up again so this might be the last post to share new goodies for a long long time.

    (as you can tell from the pic, I've had more fun playing with my new things instead of cleaning mirrors, lol)

    The watch is great for a casual look, and the etoupe leather makes it look fantastic.
