Oprah can’t get into Hermes. They wouldn’t buzz her in. What’s the world coming to?

I’ve been known to boycott brands for less of an offense. My conscience says stay away. But oh how I wish I hadn’t just perused the website two weeks ago. It’s a great site. You can click on a scarf and enlarge it to see the pattern up close. Each one is a work of art.

I own one Hermes scarf. I bought it about 12 years ago in San Diego. I was a sports writer at the time, so I told the saleswoman I wore a lot of jeans, boots and blazers, sort of sporty chic. She pulled out the absolute perfect scarf all done in rich blues, blacks and browns. There’s an Indian and a horse. It’s gorgeous. I feel like a million bucks every time I wear it.

What a dilemma.
