SCARFS & GOYARD

A pretty random post, some things I found on the internet (actually both via notcot.com)
First: How to make the perfect knot!
If you, like me, have problems getting your scarf in the right knot without it being too bulky or too loose or too whatever, here's what you do:

There, isn't that better? But obviously this isn't appropriate for every scarf, it's best to use your long and thin scarfs for this.

Ok, over to the next topic. Bags, but for charity!
Goyard and the Curie Institute (researching female cancers) have teamed up and asked 21 women (Catherine Deneuve, Audrey Tautou, Amélie Mauresmo, Vanessa Paradis,...) to personalise a Goyard bag (If you don't know Goyard, it's a french luggage company, all the bags have the typical Goyard pattern painted on them, look at the pictures to view the pattern). The bags will be sold at Christie's and the profits go to the Curie intstitute.
I really like what some of the women did with their bags, below are some of my favourites, but check the rest of them out on their website

From top left, bags by: Elodie Bouchez, Chiara Mastroianni, Audrey Marnay, Barbara Schultz, Judith Godrèche and Géraldine Pailhas.

Also, I'm sooooo behind on reading and replying to all of your comments, this week will be very busy and next week I'll be gone from monday to thursday so pleaaase bear with me and I'll be replying to you all soon! Have a great week!

I used to love Goyard, now not to so much [I blame the massive increase in knockoffs] But they do have some of the most interesting shapes in bags. Almost like those little cubes that we all probably played with in pre-school.

that was one useful video.. im not very handy with making knots.. let alone making one with a scarf-- I usually just let it fall all over the place and/or strangle myself with it or something like that.. haha..

and the Goyard luggages!! the shapes are classic-- and I think Im in love with the one designed by Audrey Marnay. :-)
