My Look: Pretty Pastels

Sandra Bauknecht Pretty Pastels

This was my outfit that I wore to the fun lunch with Rodial and Marionnaud recently in Zurich. I love wearing pastel colours in summer and the combination of light green with soft yellow has been among my favorites this season. The new Noé BB bag by Louis Vuitton in the vibrant shade of citron just adds the right unexpected splash of colour.

My look: Contrast-collar cotton and wool-blend sweater icon(70% off) by Moschino Cheap and Chic, lace and chiffon skirt, shoes and Noé BB bag in citron, all by Louis Vuitton, studded handbag and sunglasses, both by Prada, fashion jewelry by Chloé.

While you are reading this, I am on my way to Iceland today. So stay tuned for some updates from Reykjavik!

LoL, Sandra

Dior Summer Mix Edition 2013

Dior_Summer_Mix_Edition2013Gucci_Details_2

This week, the limited Dior Summer Mix Edition 2013 will be hitting the shelves in Switzerland. It features four Diorblush Cheek Cremes, with a new creamy, mousse-like non greasy texture that blends easily. An absolutely amazing must-have beauty product for the summer season. Along with those four blushes come four nail polishes in hot, vibrant shades to mix and match. For me, it is all about the colour combination of coral and pink as you can see above.

Pink patent-leather ankle-cuff sandals, coral patent-leather envelope clutch, both by Gucci, Sunnies 448 nail polish and Bikini 871 blush cream, both by Dior.

My Look: Blue Leomania

Blue Leomania

This summer is all about print, preferably from head to toe. Print silk pants are among the season’s must-haves and I recently combined those two trends in one very comfy look:

Blue leo print top, matching pyjama silk pants, scarf, slippers and bag, all by Louis Vuitton, ring “Diorette” by Dior Haute Joaillerie and watch “Lady Excalibur” by Roger Dubuis.

Do you remember the bag? It was a gift from my girlfriends for my birthday. I think the coral is the perfect addition to the blue – a wonderful colour combination.

Aston Martin DBS Volante Dragon 88 China

Wanted Aston Martin

British luxury automaker Aston Martin has debuted the Dragon 88 range of automobiles (DBS Volante, Virage Coupe and V8 Vantage S) at the Beijing Motor Show.

My favourite is the DBS Volante special edition “Year of the Dragon” that features bespoke details that pay tribute to the dragon, a creature that represents power and fortune in Chinese folklore. They take the form of 24-carat gold wing badges, embroidered headrests and commemorative sill plates. Just 88 examples were produced for each model and will only be available in China.

One of the exclusive colour options selected “to chime with traditional Chinese art and imagery” is burgundy in combination with bright red which I absolutely adore. And below you can see that this colour combo would look also stunning on you, ladies!

Pink Overall with Black Accessories

Ohlala

I love overalls and this gorgeous piece from the BOSS Black Pre-fall 2012 collection is absolutely divine. The cut and the pink colour are perfect together. 
Overall “Demira” is available in selected Hugo Boss stores now for CHF 429.-.

The colour combination of bright pink and black is gorgeous. (For a previous post where I am wearing those two shades, click here).
Therefore I would combine the pink overall with those accessories below:

Blake Lively on the Set of Gossip Girl

Blake Reed Krakoff Trench

When I came across those photos of Blake Lively last week on the set of Gossip Girl, I fell immediately in love with the colour combination of her aqua blue clutch by Emily Cho, the yellow of her bi-colour trenchoaticon by Reed Krakoff (S/S 2012 collection) and the pale pink of her pumps by Rupert Sanderson.

Bag Fight

What do you think? Isn’t the Emily Cho clutch a little too similiar to the iconic folded-over style of the one made by Alexander McQueenicon?! And the prices are pretty much the same.
Which one would you buy? I would definitely go for De Manta clutch by McQueen…

My Look at the Zurich Opera Ball

Opera Night

Last night, I went to the Zurich Opera Ball. This is a black tie event taking place once a year at the opera house which marks a highlight on Switzerland’s event calendar.

My look: Cobalt blue silk-crepe gown by Stella McCartney, silk-organza floral collar icon(such a versatile piece that instantly transforms even the simplest of looks) and Angelica silk-satin appliquéd clutch, both by GucciTribute violet suede sandals iconby Yves Saint Laurent, statement bracelet by Louis Vuitton, Lady Excalibur watch by Roger Dubuis and Diorette ring by Dior Haute Joaillerie.

I truly like those colours, cobalt blue mixed with different berry shades, together.
What do you think?

LoL, Sandra
