I want to clarify that the following post was written and scheduled for publication late Thursday afternoon; had I known of the horrid news that would emerge Friday afternoon and evening, I would had written something very different.
However, I'm going to leave this post here, for comments and for beauty's sake, because I feel like defiantly living life as normal. Let's appreciate small joys, and marvel at the wonders of the craftsmanship and creativity of our fellow humans, in the face of barbaric actions that would prefer we spend our time thinking only of negative and dark things...
You are, each of you, very important to me. I take your thoughts and feelings very seriously, and try to be sensitive to your needs.
Please discuss, and share. Community is the best opposition to nihilism, and love is the best solace for grief.
Today I'm offering up two scarves, because they're in the same color palette, and because I have ANOTHER upcoming trip for which I'm fund-raising!
Yes, Paris. For a long weekend in December. I am demented, where Paris is considered.
Leave me a comment, stating with scarf you would like - or say you want both, if that's your inclination! I'll pick two random number next Friday evening, and let you know on Saturday who's been drawn to purchase.
Each are flawless, each are 90cm square, and I'm asking $250 for each. You won't be disappointed!

|Soleil du Soie - Hermes|
These scarves are perfect for a wardrobe that is well-represented in simple basics in "winter" colors. Either of the scarves would be the perfect finishing touch to these timeless outfits:
I'm really coming around to the "white jeans in the winter" look, so long as the weather isn't splashy-sloppy. The boots give the overall balance a grounded-ness that makes it work well. And I'm working to keep a white cardigan in circulation for more of the year too...
black jeans – Alexander Wang
As as is so often the case, these four outfits come together into a capsule wardrobe that offers up lots more options for combinations. Wouldn't this make a great little long-weekend suitcase?
short boots – Cole Haan
Oh yes - last Saturday's Gucci scarf? Jeffiner Cox, send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org - the scarf is yours to purchase, if you're still interested!
lots of love,
