I thought I'd share my birthday treats :amuse:


Back in Nov/Dec last year when I went to Hermès at KaDeWe/Berlin, I fell in love with a Maxi Twilly worn by one of the SAs. To my utter disappointment there were none left for sale in that cw *sigh*

Fast forward 7 months, it's still been on my mind every now and again. I've kept checking the H website, but I haven't fallen for a single other print in this size. So as I'm standing at the counter at H Copenhagen last Friday, looking at 90 cm scarves, I decide to ask which maxis they have in stock (figuring I might as well have a look at them IRL), and what do I see when the SA opens the drawer behind him? THE print! First two pink ones, and then my cw! I think my jaw hit the glass counter and it's quite possible that I made some sort involuntary sound. Never in a million years did I think I'd be so lucky!

(Funny and far fetched side note: I purchased the scarf, named Brazil, when the world cup was held in Brazil. Where did I first fall in love with the scarf? Germany. And who won the world cup? Germany :P)


So, in the voice of Gollum from Lord of the Rings, let me present my preciousssss :graucho:

After that, the thought of a 90 cm scarf was out of the question, but he offered to hold the three designs I had been looking at for rest of the day. So we had a short stop by the perfume section and picked out some samples for me to try, and then headed to the cash register. I left with a huge smile on my face, I finally had my precious Brazil! But I still couldn't get the other scarves out of my head. I deliberated whether to go for one of those, or to get a little something from LV that I've had my eye on for a while. After a few hours I decided to go back to LV, and if I could fit the essentials plus my glucose meter then that would be the one. Said and done, I came out with a brown paper bag. Passed H again on my way to dinner and saw my SA standing in the doorway. Yeah, 5 minutes later I carried another orange bag and an even bigger smile on my face :P

Birthday treat # 2 (or 3, if you count the LV)

And since I've been on a TPF break I'll go ahead and include pics of last year's birthday treats (at least I don't think I made a reveal)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MsFrida!!! Stunning birthday presents (LV included)! So glad you found your maxi twilly. After years of trials and errors, my H mantra has become 'just get it'. Too many regrets for passing something up that were never found again. Enjoy your birthday! :biggrin:

PS Fab pics!

Happy birthday to you! And what beautiful photos! I agree with the other post, are you a professional photographer by any chance? Anyhow, I am your identical twins on the tiger scarf, one of the 90s I still wear occasionally! It's stunning open as well as tied. Enjoy them all!

You're making me blush. Thank you so much! No, I'm far from it, and like I mentioned earlier I barely know what I'm doing half the time :P I'm the daughter of a hobby photographer, so the little I do know I've learned from him

Thank you so much! The fuchsia is such a nice pop of color, congrats! I prefer to be behind the camera and not in front of it :P but I might take some pics tomorrow
