Well, the coffee part is just that I'm typing this while drinkin a hot cup of joe....nothing too exciting about that except that it's GOOD coffee instead of that dishwater I drank in the cafe outside Neiman's this morning Ok, anyway....Lady H and I high-tailed it bright and early into the city today in order to beat the traffic (which is bad enough to make your hair stand on end), tossed the car keys to the attendant in the garage and made a B-line to Hermes. Jose wan't there but my Chocolate Cashmere Shawl certainly WAS! And girls, this thing is beyond TDF! It has the softest hand of any cashmere I've ever felt in my life and I've felt plenty! I think Twigs said she owns one in almost every color and now I can see why ! If you like shawls and have worn them in the past and now want something that will not only keep you warm but look chic as well then this is the baby for you! They had it in Rust, Black, deep Blue (not Navy), Saphire, Dusty Pink and Chocolate. $890.00 USD and it's worth every penny! it came home with me....:shame: shocker, I know But I did have another mission for going today (actually I had a few)...I left my Peony's scarf to be plissed and was told not to expect it for FOUR months! It's off to Paris (a city I've never been to but my accessories have :blink: ) and one day will come back all pleated and in a small round box. AND, I looked long and hard at their leather gloves. Of course I fell madly and I mean madly in lust with a pair that I can not for the life of me remember the name of but it's short (just to the top of the wrist) and has a togle closure. Anyone know the name of this style??? Looks very much like a driving glove. So, that's it for this trip....except.......for the list of goodies displayed right now on the shelves!
