....I need something in a delicious shade of pink

Any suggestions?

Laurent Perrier Rose?!

CHOOGIRL Fri 02-Oct-09 21:47:33

or this

this is pink and delicious

Similar colour to the Toast dress in the other thread.

And another in a similar shade. I think this would look good with a black polo neck underneath.

This one would look best with a long black polo neck over the top. hmm

Amandoh - I love the Development dress you linked to. Absolutely gorgeous

cashmere/silk shawl:

from Hermes

LetThemEatCake Sun 04-Oct-09 15:49:18

choogirl, you are bad .... Bob, you are worse!!!! That shawl is heaven and is now in my shopping basket ... do I dare press 'proceed to checkout'?? Really, really want to...

luka - are you after something decadent and pink too??

will go and have a glass of rose and ponder ....

I love pink, it's so flattering and gives my v pale complexion a rosy glow in winter!

Here's something pretty yummy in pink. Any suggestions as to how I can justify it's purchase? It would make me very, very, very happy smile

grin LTEC

You need to to be quick with that shawl -it's on the wanted list for many. I know people have been waiting for that design/colourway since the summer, I nearly bought it myself and I don't 'do' pink.

The Kelly en Caleche shawls rarely appear on the website so if you are tempted - do grab one quick, they won't hang around for long.

oh god, I am going to have to sleep on it... if I do, it would the most expensive thing I have ever bought ...

I love pink ... but am dark haired and dark skinned, so it really does flatter all types doesn't it!

Verity - I think we've talked about this coat before. Remember, you can pay for it in the lattes you won't be drinking to warm up, you'll be toasty enough!! do it! life's too short and winter's too cold to not have it.

Now, if someone could please come up with similar justification for the Hermes shawl please.....

CHOOGIRL Sun 04-Oct-09 21:14:40

OK - Justification coming up.... You are worth it - call it a gift to yourself for having baby Leon.
Hermes will last FOREVER. I love mine got it 2 years ago and would wear it everyday if I could.
It is a work of art - you could frame it and just look at it.. A £700 painting isn't that bad?
Early xmas present?
You don't smoke so what you save on cigarettes makes up for it?
You are worth it!!

Just don't read the AIBU thread about £100 cardigans smile

tulpe Sun 04-Oct-09 21:16:50

Surely the same justification applies to the Hermes shawl, non LTEC?

Think of how much warmer your neck and shoulders will be with that beauty caressing you

VerityBrulee Sun 04-Oct-09 21:20:50

You're right LTEC, I have been dithering about that jacket for ages!

So, how useful is this scarf going to be? I got a mailing from Hermes a couple of weeks ago with a booket on hundreds of different ways to wear a scarf, so you could wear it in a different way twice a week for a year!

Would you be gutted if you log in tomorrow and found someone else has bought the last one?

Good to sleep on it, Overspend in haste, repent at leisure as my Granny used to say, well something like that!

LetThemEatCake Sun 04-Oct-09 21:25:14

I just showed it to my mum and although she blanched at the price (remember this is the woman who took advantage of my post-natal haze to encourage me to buy a discounted Sainsbo's skirt - which has now gone back) even she admitted it was divine

choogirl - I am headed straight to AIBU!!!

monkeysmama Sun 04-Oct-09 21:38:11

Are you breast feeding LTEC? Every bfing woman deserves something divine to wrap themselves & bubba in.

LetThemEatCake Sun 04-Oct-09 21:44:18

I am indeed breastfeeding ... me & bubba currently swathed in a cashmere wrap blush

any luck with the leather skirt yet?

monkeysmama Sun 04-Oct-09 21:54:20

I went in to the place in Greenwich on Friday and they had quite a few lovely ones. I wanted to try 4 on but dd had a meltdown. Am returning on Tuesday when dp's parents are here to look after dd. Will let you know! Thanks for the suggestion.

bramblebooks Sun 04-Oct-09 22:01:01

you lot are awful. I have two hermes scarves and love them, but now I want this:

uk.hermes.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10201&catalogId=10051&langId=-11&cate goryId=11111&leftCategoryId=11107&topCategoryId=130037&parentCategoryId=130038&productId=42465&nbIte m=0

LetThemEatCake Mon 05-Oct-09 09:17:27

go on bramble, i will if you will

have any of you seen the liberty/ hermes collaboration?

what do you think to it?

dexter73 Mon 05-Oct-09 09:33:03

They are lovely scarves. How do you wear them?

tulpe Mon 05-Oct-09 10:13:45

Not loving the liberty/hermes collaboration at all, tbh.

I do, however, love the pink one you are lusting after. Have you bought it yet?

bramblebooks Mon 05-Oct-09 12:47:08

Have you bought it?

I am on an economy drive having lingered rather too long on white stuff's website!

I have a thing for silk twill, so will probably put this one on the Christmas list!
