Update 03/01/20 with Christmas gifts 2019

Oops! I nearly forgot to write this post as I was so absorbed watching a TV programme! As I promised to write about my Christmas presents today I had better get on with it…

This year, instead of asking my chaps for a few items, I asked them all if they would contribute towards one larger present… and they did. So, this gorgeous handbag from the wonderful Massaccesi company is the result: midi-Victoria in dark teal Flor and Nappa leathers, navy lining and silver hardware. The Flor leather was only offered for a very short time and is really stunning. I have only taken a few photos so far, but this will give you an idea of how it looks. I will try to take some better ones on a sunny day.

The midi-Victoria is a smaller version of the full-size Victoria, which I already have in amethyst pebbled leather. I won’t be able to carry as much clobber in this daintier bag, so it will be stored for special occasions.

As well as this amazing handbag, I bought myself a lovely Christmas present – yes, another Hermès scarf! I had been looking through the designs for the new Spring/Summer 2020 season and a particular one caught my eye as I wrote on this blog before Christmas. I have never been a patient person, so I dashed to the French H site and ordered straight away, as the new scarves had not appeared on the UK site and I was afraid that there would be a price increase in the new year.

Anyway, I won’t do the usual full reveal, but here are the first photos…

Isn’t it absolutely amazing?!? Feathers in silk: Plumes en Fête 90cm silk twill by Hermès, Spring/Summer 2020. And, no, I don’t intend to wear the handbag and the scarf at the same time!

I am planning to write a full Scarf of the Moment post on Monday as everyone is getting excited about all of the new season’s offerings. If you would like to know more, please look at the Purse Forum – …The Hermès Spring/Summer 2020 Scarves…

Well, I think that’s all for now! I hope that you all have a lovely weekend.

Love and best wishes,

    Hi, Anne. Happy New Year! When I saw this scarf on the Hermes website, I thought of you and felt you would be getting it. Enjoy!
