HALLELUJAH HERMES!!




Every 25 seconds an Hermes scarf is sold somewhere in the world.

And so Chris contributed towards about 1 minute’s revenue towards Hermes for my birthday ;)

When he gave me the paper bag, my thought was “Oooooh! Hermes!” and simultaneously my other thought was “Crap! Hermes!” because I know just how much Hermes costs (ummm.. ouch)…. When I peeked inside, there was not one… but TWO Hermes boxes! My jaw dropped :P

Recently I’ve gotten interested in scarves, and I guess must’ve lamented to Chris I didn’t have a really nice scarf.. and he must’ve remembered! That, or he knows me VERY well :) He’d gone to the boutique and picked up 2 designs that he thought I’d like, and he has great taste!

DID YOU KNOW?
It takes a studio of 20 designers about 2 years< to complete a Hermes scarf from design concept, engraving and printing to the hand finishing process. Every scarf tells a unique story. Each scarf contains 65 grams of silk from approximately 250 cocoons. And their special rounded hem? It's specially hand-rolled and takes 40 minutes to complete. Very cool trivia eh?! With Hermes, it could never be just a scarf, I guess ;)

What I like most is that Hermes scarves are timeless – they’re not like regular scarves that you buy to use, then chuck ’em away/lose them after awhile. With Hermes, the scarves become covetable vintage scarves, which I can pass to my daughter(s) to use in future.. and that’s a nice thought :)

I could find one of the Hermes scarves on their official website but the other one is AWOL, or maybe I just haven’t looked hard enough :P I loooove both though, they’re each so different so I’ve created a whole variety of ways to use ’em and pair them with my outfits. Will post pics of what I’ve done next!


Box #1 – Beautiful, soft silk…. aiiieeee!

Oh those are lovely! You are a lucky LUCKY lady to have such a generous and loving hubby.

I think that is true about all things Hermes. I think that’s why Birkins and Kellys are so covetable. They are quality, and require so much work, and they last forever. And then they become heirlooms.

beverly says:

Very true! I don’t like the Birkin and Kelly bags at the moment though.. but maybe I will in 10 years when I’m older :P

beverly says:

Whee thank you honey, having fun playing around with em!

Gorgeous, hubby has excellent taste. Went to the site and checked out the other colors of the Columbus scarf, the blue one is goooorrgeous. (But I love everything blue, hehe)

Happy belated birthday btw. :)

beverly says:

I like blues too! But ummm must refrain from trying to buy another scarf……

the second scarf is especially gorgeous (and meaningful).

beverly says:

I really adore both.. and I like how the first one has “christophe” in it :P

missustay says:

gorgeous! i especially like the pastel pink one. the color combination is very pretty!

beverly says:

It’s sooo soft in real life.. yayness!! Is it weird if I keep rubbing the scarf on myself? ;)

They are gorgeous! I love them and you will have them forever.

beverly says:

i do love how there are so many collectable vintage Hermes scarves around.. hopefully mine will be that many years from now… :)
