Ok I have been into these for a couple years now but need to do a post about them at long last. I LOVE these scarves. They are a greta investment piece and I have to say they are one of the most used items in my wardrobe and I get tons of wear out of them...at work and at play. They are very fragile so if you will die if you get a run in them ...they may not be for you. The thin cashmere is actually part of the appeal to me because they are so lightweight and flowy and not a heavy cashmere which allows you to style it many different ways. They are a nice way to add some animal print to your outfit without it looking trashy in the way that leopard pants or a dress might come off.
Attached are some photos and links to celebs/socialites in the scarf in various colors and a photo of my own collection which includes the very hard to find red from the first collection. If you can find one, Vuitton is currently selling the brown, violet, and anthracite (grey). Find them at eLuxury.com (visit through the Banner at the top of my blog!), LouisVuitton.com or your local Vuitton boutique (who will probably tell you there is a waiting list so you are better of stalking the websites first).
I was browsing some Exotics on NeimanMarcus.com today and noticed these Carlos Falchi bags which look very similar to my fav Devi Kroell hobo. What do you think? I own the Devi in silver python (had a bronze also but sold it to splurge on something else!). I LOVE her bags and want it in several more colors. If you can catch Devi bags at her sample sales in NYC you can get a major savings off the very high retail price. The Devi Kroell hobos are shown in silver and purple python. The other two are the Carlos Falchi bags. You can find Devi Kroell bags on her website.
