She looks amazing on you. The color looks great against your skin
That's so sweet to hear ! I have hesitated with the marine/parme/mauve shade. So glad to have chosen this one.
Thank you! I think it sur the beginning of a great love story.
Here you go, Moma!

I love your colorway, momma! That magenta hem is stunning!
Thank you, twin!
Thank you, everybody!
A little pick-me-up for spring, which hasn't actually arrived yet! LOL. It was freezing today.
Thank you! They are really fun and very inexpensive. My daughter gave them to me when she was in 8th grade - quite a while ago!
Thank you. You need this!
Thanks, ABQ - yes, the hem is amazing!!!
The Tower of Babel in all its ornate glory
Pink cw of Pegase
With the festive scarf box which always reminds me of the gorgeous exceptionelle that had actual nailheads decorating the scarf.
Oh, you are amazing!!! Thank you! This is fabulous. (I *do* need this scarf - I think there's a gavroche!) I know about two thirds of these folks. Must investigate further. You know Andrea Chenier is also an (Italian) opera. Aimée becomes Maddalena!
nailheads??? like jewels?
Momma- I probably should have waited for this CW, but have the one in shades of blue.
And bought 2 more moussies in the last2 days, so I think I am banned!
I think like nailheads used in leathercraft. I've never seen it IRL but, when I was clearing out a stack of Elle, I found a write-up of the exceptionelle edition in a sidebar. Found the same write-up here on purseblog:
Tower of Babel is awesome!
This is gorgeous on you. What cw is it? They look so vibrant tied compared with the static thumbnail on h.com
Lovely colours on you!
