technically fashionable

two things I'd like to show you today. first is the new Hermès scarf. I've always thought Hermès scarves were very formal and old-lady-like..but after seeing J'aime Mon Carre, I totally changed my mind. Turns out they were just as fun as McQueen skull scarves. Mine has this oriental/japanese-inspired balls all over it and it's got pretty all of my favorite colors in one square. definitely a love at first sight item. now i'm planning to collect more of these silky beauties.. and maybe pass them down to my daughters/grand-daughters in the future? ;)

NEXT . is my new netbook courtesy of Gateway Indonesia! Most girls have a bad relationship with gadgets, but that doesn't apply to me. I love trying out new gizmos. There's something fun playing around with them for me. I was really happy when Dita, a rep from Gateway, offered me this LT Series laptop. The 10inch size and  800grams weight is perfect for travelling and for girls who hate carrying weight around. Bonus: the battery lasts for ages (8 hours to be exact) *hooorrayy for no carrying cables*

most netbooks don't come with a really good display but this Gateway LT25 has a fabulous one. Crisp & vibrant colors ensures precise photo editting for a photoshop-geek like me. The keyboard & mouse was top notch as well. my fingers didn't get that crammed up feeling I dislike. a little webcam is a great final touch to keep intact via Skype when travelling :)

G4
there's a dedicated scrolling section in the mouse pad which enables you to scroll without dragging your finger up & down [helpful for those loooooooooonnnnnnnnggggggggg web pages].. I also loved the SD-Card slot! I no longer have to bring my memory card reader when I need to transfer photos now. lightweight & functional is my summary of this device...

I have always been a huge fan of Hermes scarves. Some people think they are too formal, too mature, too "old lady-ish," but it is all in how you wear them. If you wear them like you did, it looks fun and cute. If you tie it in the "old lady knot," as I call it, yeah, it will look too mature for a young person. I also like to tie them on the sides of my handbags or around my ponytail.

Debby said...

love love this post. that Hermes scarf is amazing. bold colors with neutral classic items are my weakness. great pics.

also, the netbooks are the best! i traveled from vietnam to paris in the last 4 months, and my little Acer Aspire One was my lifesaver. i posted photos, booked every flight as i went, backed up all my pics, and kept in touch with everyone on skype...and it was only 2.5 lbs! Amazing what tech does now =)

TheMadTwins said...

And sorry that I haven't been commenting lately, but I'm really busy with school. It's my last year and then aI graduate so ^__^

I don't know what I like more, the silk scarf or the notebook. I think both of them are wonderful, that notebook could fit in your purse, how cool is that? I have a good relationship with gadgets too, how can I not, they make the world go round :))
Oh, about the marriage. Congratulations, if you are happy, that's all that matters and I couldn't be more supportive of this. You'll be one gorgeous bride, be sure to show us pictures when the time comes.
