    THEME WEEKS for 2019 from TEAM SCARF MISTRESS

    Just for fun, each Sunday begins a new Theme Week. This year TEAM SCARF MISTRESS is a gang of FIVE for 2019—plus Guest Volunteers who will host some Theme Weeks from the list below. If you’d like to be a host, start a Conversation with one of us-- @ABQ2ATL @bunnycat, @Cookiefiend, @Living.la.vida.fifi, or our very dear @xincinsin, --by clicking the Inbox in the upper right corner. Tell us the date and Theme you’d like to introduce and we’ll answer questions and sign you up. (We’d really love your help!)

    Everyone on this thread is a Scarfie who loves learning about specific designers, discovering new scarf knots, examining scarf details more carefully, and seeing MORE SCARVES. Even if it's off-theme, your SOTD (Scarf of the Day) is always welcome. Be creative, have fun with the topics, and SHOW US YOUR SCARVES — talk about them and add links to more information. We’re all friends here (definitely no Scarf Police) – so smile at your selfie camera and come play with us!

    Welcome to the 2019 Scarf Thread Scarflandians! It's time to start the first theme of 2019!

    :dothewave:
    6 Jan 2019 -FIRST- Your first H scarf in any sense

    This week we’re going to start the year exploring our “firsts” with H scarves. Take it liberally and spread it around because that means the first in any sense you want it to. After all, our motto this year is Grab and Go! So a first for you might be your actual first scarf, your first mousseline, first red scarf, first Annie Faivre, first multiple of a scarf you bought, first GM size. Maybe, some first purchases of 2019??? :graucho:

    Whatever first takes your fancy this week, now is the time to show and tell!

    The firsts I have for sharing today are some of my favorite firsts of the past.

    My first mousseline GM was La Rosee and that started a Loooong fall down in to GM madness....

    1stgm.jpg

    My first bandana purchase (which was also the first issue of the bandana format) - double first!

    1stbandana.jpg

    My first Maxi Twilly- Brazil...also from the 1st issue of the MT format...still going strong in its 4th or 5th year now...

    My first “in store” purchase was in 2018 (H-matic) as I usually purchase new items via H.com so that was a real treat for me- Dans un Jardin Anglais

    1stinstore.jpg


    And more recently, Xmas brought my first C/S scarf- Zebres Bandana

    xmaszebra.jpg

    PS- As I am writing this….I keep double-checking the word first…because it’s one of those days when nothing looks spelled correctly…. :lol:

    Let's get the new year started right and share what firsts you can think of!

  5. My first purchase from h.com - I remember hesitating for days over this. There are several H boutiques in town, but this design was sold out. Two days after I made the order, I received an email asking me to call a US number because I was using a non-US bank credit card. Fortunately, my order was accepted and, after the wonders of freight forwarding, I had my vert amande phoenix.

  8. My very first H scarf was the result of my thinking that I needed to step up my appearance - to stop being that plain Jane all the time. I went in a mission looking at style blogs, Pinterest pages and fashion mags. In one of the blogs I found a woman who was building outfits around H scarves - hrmmm sed I. So off to eBay I went (because in the way back there was no way in h e double hockey sticks was I paying full price for a peice of silk - oh how times have changed! ) and searched around when my eye was caught by a pale blue and textured (I had no idea about jacquard) silk - and it had falcons on it! Interesting! The seller was very kind (because I had zero feedback she asked that a buyer contact her) and we agreed on a price that I still think was fair.

    I love this scarf. The seller disclosed that it was possibly stained on the corners. After receiving it and washing it, it is a little yellow-ish on the corners. I wrote to the seller and told her that I thought the scarf had been truly loved by its previous owner and that now it was my turn.

    Because I didn’t get back on the 2018 thread before it was locked, I’d like to thank everyone for their kind words and likes. You guys are just the absolute best.
     
  9. Fabulous start to the year bunny - thank you!
    I didn't realize that La Rosee was your first moussie - talk about starting off with a bang!! tender.gif
     
  10. What. Fantastic find. I also have a DuJA in a mousse (and 90). It is one of my favorite releases ever...I just wish they would bring in out in a shawl or larger format (heck who am kidding...just re-release it)

  15. Looking forward to seeing everyone’s firsts this week. Like @Cookiefiend, I bought my first few scarves off eBay.

    After taking a voyage on QM2, I learned that there was a Queen Mary 2 scarf issued by Hermes in 2004 for the maiden voyage. It was only available on board in the Hermes boutique. In 2009, the design was reissued with no name on the ship. The scarf is simply called “ en avant toute!” Which means “ full speed ahead!”.
    At any rate, I started my search for this scarf in 2013, long after the HA boutique had left the ship.
    The very first scarf I bought was the 2009 version en avant toute! Shown below. The last pic is of the original 2004 Queen Mary 2 version, which I did eventually find on eBay some months later in unused condition.

    I now have 2 addictions: H scarves, and taking QM2 transatlantic to beat jet lag. 3ABE2CD7-4D0A-4F62-9B75-56E59449FB98.jpeg 97A92BAB-FDD9-458A-9807-1E13140C9999.jpeg 4C183E0B-F3E0-4583-B78F-B85FD88F92E0.jpeg DC23AFCA-2F69-4154-AC82-4EFE9F272739.jpeg
