Goldfinch



I'm feeling a bit quiet just now, so whilst the cat's holding my tongue to ransom, outfits it shall be, boy do those style bloggers have it easy.

Event: a chum's low key birthday supper.

I have never understood the point of eating oysters but it was dressed in my livery - smile Mr Oyster.

What I wore: Armani coat, Bompard cashmere jumper, Jack Wills jeans, Manolo Blahnik mules,  Hermes maxi twilly.


chirp, chirp!

What I channelled: A little birdie.
What he told me? That's for me to know and you to wonder.

  1. I've always loved those furry pompom shoes of yours. You look beautiful. Low key??? Not at all! Very luxe xx

    1. I hadn't worn them for years, they were lying gathering dust.

  2. I need detachable poms poms on my shoes, had them on my wedding shoes and it adds a smile no?

  3. Gorgeous scarf. Love that Midas touch to brighten the black, and the hits of feathers and fur brings a wildness to an otherwise polished urban outfit. Well crafted!

  4. Love that scarf!! I haven't seen that style, will have to check out Hermès soon. I'm nuts for mules but can't walk in most of them to save my life.

  5. That birdie is telling to check your calendar; I didn't sleep in that late Tabs although that outfit is nice to wake up to.

  6. GSL, well spotted, no idea why it came up like that.

    Une femme - I much prefer it to the regular Hermes scarves, I find them a bit mumsy on me.

    Naomi - I wish these ones were detachable, I'd have gotten more wear out of these shoes.

    Jen: Yellow is tricky for me, I'm still not sold on this.

    1. Interesting that you think regular Hermes scarves are a bit mumsy. They look superb on FF, the essence of glam! On Maitai too of course. I guess it depends how you wear them and with what. Pamela

    2. PS Also formidable, bien sur, on Hobart Housewife (who has magical ways of tying) and Adelaide Villa! Cheers, Pamela

  7. I love this and as you know I have the same scarf, now I just need to get my paws on those mules, they are gorgeous! I love the entire outfit. And oysters, I could eat a thousand, my favourite.

  8. Love the Maxi Twilly on you!! I've wanted to get one but I think I am too short, what works best for me are the shawls. Did you get an update on when your other little lovely is coming in? :)

    1. K I'm only about 5 3, I thought it would be too long for me but it's ok.

      Dani: I think oysters are really dubious things to eat!

    2. Oh and mum is drowning in H after her birthday - has to take lots back!

  9. I hear that mules are making a comeback this year but with a different design that covers more of the foot.

    1. I'd like to beat that comeback like a rented mule.

    2. I didn't even realize those Manolo's are called mules; I was thinking of those backless cloggy things that make so much noise.

  10. You are looking great Tabitha. Those shoes are gorgeous....looks like the world is your oyster.

  11. Love this! I had a fab pair of Stuart Weitzman mink pom pom mules several years ago and wore them till the cows came home! You look lovely!

  12. Gorgeous outfit. I have a little pair of flats with some mink on them and always feel fab when I wear them. The maxi tilly is fabulous. I wondered about it because I'm short, but you show proof it's wonderful on us shorties!!

  15. Love the outfit, especially the scarf. Like you, I'm not really sure about yellow, but I did succumb (long story) to the Hermès Tendresse Féline in black, ivory, and gold, and I love it. Surprising versatile, though as you say caution is required with the carré to keep from looking mumsy. Speaking of goldfinches, have you read the book?

    1. No, I very rarely read fiction.

    2. Tabs try it, it is a very addictive read.

  16. You look really good. I love the scarf I had no idea twilies,were that big. Not keen on the fury pom poms, though I m sure my cat would love them.

  17. I love oysters; they have a beautiful ocean taste. I will never understand people who don't chew them. They aren't a vitamin pill! :) They are nice with champagne, white wine or martinis. I bet they would be good with a bloody mary. They are also nice battered and fried. I have had them fried and then in a sandwich which is good. And then there is stew. Now I am boring you!

    Beautiful outfit.

  18. Stunning scarf with black ensemble. Love oysters, to my shame was ejected from all you can eat oyster tent in wine country as had eaten 40 (!)

    1. That is so funny! Did you know they are only 10 calories each? So for only 400 calories you had two days of iron. Why am I writing this? Stop eating oysters people and leave them for me. :)

      Manhattan Island was surrounded by oyster beds long ago. Oh, well.

  19. The shoes are adorable, I want to pet them and your pretty coat too!

  20. Just made an appointment this morning to get my hair chopped off. Then of course saw your gorgeous (although headless) photo here reminding me I've been trying to grow out my length for almost a year. Damn you, maybe just a wee trim then. Loving the maxi twilly (the usual twillys are such a waste of fabric & never could figure out what to do with mine) and looks like the perfect amount of silk. I fear I'm too young for the scarves, but wear them anyway and just feel like my great grandmother. Cheers, Laura

  21. What are those furry "carnations" on your scarf made from ?

    .I suppose if a bird has to fly down to tell you something be glad it's a goldfinch not a vulture

  22. Ah love this! Amazing shoes and coat. You are gorgeous like a little bird. So behind in reading blogs and inspired already by you! Have a good week Tabs!

  23. When I look at your blog Tabitha - for some reason I just think "Audrey Hepburn". Style, elegance, simplicity and - for all the sophistication - a kind of innocence. Thanks also for your comforting comments. Take care

  24. Tabs, you have a way of taking a few pieces and making a luxe outfit. I love everything here.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Lovin' the entire outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hahahah! They do have it easy!

    Excuse me while I raid your apartment.

  27. You look stunning, as always. And I used to love oysters until I once and for all understood that they are still alive when you eat them. :(
    PS. Hello? Could you ask for any nicer comment than the Scots Bachelor above? Hall of Fame comment!

  28. Another fabulous outfit!! I love yellow, it is so cheering. Now I am regretting passing up on that maxi twilly when it came out last year...! I also used to think that Hermes scarves were mumsy but the design and the colours make a big difference. I gravitate towards the ones with modern, abstract prints. I also don't get the point of eating oysters - I'll take sushi over oysters any day!! Hope your week is off to a great start.

  29. Those shoes--love the luxurious look of those pretty damsels!

  30. Love your style, Tabitha. And those mules....!

  31. You look fabulous! Nice to be scarf twins with you.

  32. What another beautiful post! I must say, I LOVE the straighten hair!!!!! And that coat, could I borrow it as we are in the middle of a power outage and ice storm?!? Today was spent watching my finch, juncos and titmouse eat thistle on the window sill. Such sweet birds.

  33. I had no idea Hermès made maxi twillys. This one is gorgeous!
