My Look: Ready, Set, Snow!

Today, I am flying back from an amazing trip through Yucatán. For the past two weeks, I tried to stay away as much as I could from social media and other work related distractions to recharge my batteries fully. Here you see me at Wasserngrat Restaurant during the ASW Winter Weekend in Gstaad in December. I cannot imagine that I have to get back to winter clothes in a few hours… but I have to admit they look nice as well.

My look: Ski overall with fur embellishments, fur snow boots, and gloves, all by Prada, fur stole by FendiBoy bag with chains by Chanel, embroidered sweater by Gucci.

Most Important S/S 2018 Accessories Trends

After this weekend’s summary about the 15 most important runway trends for S/S 2018, I thought you might enjoy a look also at the must-have accessories for next summer. The forecast: Get ready for your another sumptuous season! Many things are here to stay or will even take it up a notch. Sneakers are trendier than ever and have taken center stage. The ugly shoe phenomenom explores new heights as seen at Balenciaga‘s collaboration with Crocs. And we can deny it no longer: the fanny pack is here to stay. Earrings and straw hats are bigger than ever and bags are most beautiful in an array of patterns.

LoL, Sandra

More is more, this is what the F/W 2016 season is all about! With fashion in a maximalist mood, accessories have taken center stage. On the runways, heels were high, the bijoux was stacked and layered, and the bags were furrier or came with accessories of their own. The forecast: Get ready for your most sumptuous season yet.

If the Broom Fits

Halloween 2015

Looking for a last minute Halloween costume? Craft yours out of pieces that will have a place in your closet throughout the year. I am sure that you have something black that is reminiscent of the ongoing Victorian trend. The F/W 2015 catwalks were full of Halloween-style looks. I prefer a stylish high end of-the-moment ensemble instead of the predictable animal ears or plastic mask.

Get the look: Ruffled silk-blend lace dressicon and embellished suede gloves, both by Alexander McQueen, embellished flocked brocade cape by Simone RochaMadison lace-up suede sandals by Paul Andrew2Jours embellished textured-leather shoulder bag by Fendi and nose ring in gunmetal-tone and crystal by Givenchy.
