my herm├Ęs dream dress

When I first saw images of Hermès' Trompe L'oeil dress (circa 1952), I literally think my heart skipped a beat. It’s everything I could ever want in a piece of clothing… and then some! Not to mention, the way it’s styled on the model in the first and last photo? Totally my cup of tea. I’m currently plotting with a fellow vintage lover in New York to create a DIY version of some sort. I’m not super crafty, but come hell or high water I WILL have this hanging in my closet!

chic women wear scarves

I was on the Hermés website yesterday afternoon (dreaming, of course) and stumbled across "Playtime With Your Scarf", their online picture booklet that explains how to tie your scarf in a multitude of ways. I've always been fascinated by women who wear scarves to cover their hair-- I think it looks so glamourous! I've never tried it before, but I think it's going to be my new spring look. Now I need to start hunting for some vintage scarves
