Linda has asked me to post a picture of one of mine to help her feel better...I hope this works!
I like the packaging and keep all the ribbons tags and boxes.

This very equestrian influenced scarf was purchased in a local shop not a Hermes boutique.
I didn't wear this one as much as I felt I should /could have...
last week when my daughter was over for dinner and to do her laundry
I asked her if she'd like it
a gift from a mother to daughter on the occasion of her new job
I have wandered into Hermes shops and come out without spending a dime...
I always have a good look around...it's free!
and more recently I came out with my current scent Voyage d' Hermes.
Browsing in high end shops is a great way to check out luxe looks.
I pay close attention to details and fabrics.
I often go shopping in a well stocked consignment or thrift shop seeking out pieces that can be had for a song...
I wore many different scarves long before my first Hermes.
I would suggest looking for silk, larger squares with hand rolled edges and choose a colour and print that "sing to you" practise tying as seen here at deja pseu's blog
When and if you are in a position to splurge, I say do some homework and when you are ready just go for it and buy what makes your heart beat a little faster.
It has been my experience that I enjoy wearing mine and every time I put one on it stirs up the memories associated with the purchase...my husband Mr. HB has been by my side, smiling!
He does know a thing or two on how to keep me happy...this is the luxe trick
the other is cooking for me...
stay tuned for the next post!
