Hermes must be in the air

Long time readers of Summer is a Verb are used to the travails of Alice's long suffering husband Babe. The poor devil lies awake nights in fear of the UPS man's next delivery. Naturally, when his birthday or other gift receiving opportunity comes his way he meekly asks for a shopping moratorium. Can you blame him? How can something so petite, be so expensive?

While reading Steven Hitchcock's blog, The Savile Row Tailor yesterday, I found the perfect gift for Babe from Alice.

Now I am not certain Alice would be willing to pull the plug on this, but as a demonstration of her love, it would be hard to top.




Wouldn't Babe love his favorite navy blue blazer lined in Alice's Hermes scarves?

Personally, I thought Steven's client went a bit overboard with the pull out breast pocket, but that's just me.

Imagine the fun Babe and Alice would have shopping for replacements.

Donations of old scarves may be sent here.

Many women might cry, but I like this lining. The pullout breast pocket made me chuckle. Great idea.

Everything went quiet after I read "petite". I would have gone willingly by the hand to the Salem Witch trials after that compliment. Untrue, but glorious just the same Toad. ♫ Oh what a beauuutiful mooorninnng, oh what a beautiful daaay ♫

Patsy I agree.

This is just fabulous! But I think Alice should just get more Hermes scarves.

Anne Lake's comment has been deleted lest Alice see it and get ideas.

This ones gonna backfire on you when Allie decides to have her own blazer lined in hermes. Babe will be left wondering, "who the heck gave her this idea?"... Come on Allie, DO IT, DO IT!
