I Was a Blogger Before I Knew It

1999_Blogger_Before_I Knew_it

Last weekend, when I was looking for a picture with me wearing my Vela backpack by Prada in the ’90s (see yesterday’s post here), I came across so many old pictures and of course I couldn’t stop going through them. One thing that made me really laugh out loud was that I took outfit post photos more than 10 years before becoming a blogger. Call me a visionary…

Those ones were taken in a hotel room in South Africa before heading to dinner. I wore a jumpsuit by Escada with a little cardigan by Ralph Lauren, sandals by Prada, sunglasses by Gucci and a little charm necklace by Tiffany & Co. Something I would still wear but I have to admit that I am not so sure about my blonde hair and my facial expression is priceless, OMG! Isn’t it a good thing that I like myself so much better today…?!

Paris Fashion Week was awesome, filled with many magical moments that I will share with you constantly during the next weeks. Here you see me running from one show to another at the corner of Rue de Castiglione and Rue du Faubourg Saint- Honoré wearing the season’s optical trend. Aren’t graphic stripes so much fun?!

My Look: Knitwear Dressing

Prove them wrong and follow my advice! If you have space, keep your clothes, there will always be a time for them again.

Knitwear dressing made a big comeback on the runways for the F/W 14 season and I am so happy that I have kept these S/S 2008 Prada pieces. They are so perfect for this fall.

My Look: Top Secret in Delphi

My_Look_Rottweiler_Givenchy_tee

On Sunday, I flew to Athens, Greece. I was invited by Hermès to a secret location for the launch of an amazing new product. After a three hours ride by car, I arrived in Delphi, which was in Greek mythology the site of the famous Delphic oracle. Enough said, unfortunately I am not allowed to tell you more until February 2013. And believe me, this is hard for me, too.

In the meantime enjoy my look that I wore on the arrival day:
Oversized Rottweiler print tank top and wool gauze Rottweiler scarf, both by Givenchy (Please click here for the previous post when I told you all about this fashion hype), black long cardigan by Guccistretch cashmere-blend leggings iconby Donna Karan and brushed-leather biker boots iconby Miu Miu.

Stay tuned for more to come up soon…

Trend Report S/S 2012: Red & Nude

S 2012 RedNUde

Red is a must next summer and in combination with nude and beige just irresistible
Clare Waight Keller, who has replaced Chloé‘s Hannah MacGibbon, shows for her debut collection this colour combination in perfection.

If you are in the mood for shopping, have a look at this stunning outfit below, perfect for the cold temperatures now.

Red & Nude

I personally absolutely adore the colour combination of red and nude, so French and so chic!

This rosette-embellished silk top iconby Lanvin will be a great addition to your wardrobe. It works best partnered with a simple pencil skirt or this trendy pleated leather skirt by Marc Jacobs. Stay warm during winter time with a cozy cardigan by Missoni and the gorgeous red flared wool princess coat by Issa. Add a classic bag such as the nude vitello bow-embellished leather tote by Miu Miu and some killer heels like thestudded open toe sandals by Valentino and you will me make heads turn.

LoL, Sandra
