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 Outfit at the Gucci F/W 2012 Show

Red Blue Turquoise

The last days that I spent with the Gucci crowd were amazing. I have so much to show you and I am still far behind with my New York adventures

This was my outfit that I wore to the Gucci F/W 2012 show. It was quite difficult to pick something as we had to go straight after to the train station leaving for Florence. I am completely in love with the colour combination of emerald, blue and red. Isn’t it so chic?!

Midnight blue long military-style coat, red belted dress, emerald fur stole and shoes, all by Gucci, ring Diorette by Dior Haute Joiallerie and blue Boston python bag by Céline.

LoL, Sandra

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.

Trend Alert F/W 2011: Blue & Black

Blue & Black

Now that Fashion Week has closed its doors on Paris and we have seen the beauty of the upcoming S/S 2012 season, it is hard to believe that winter is here and it is time we get all dressed up for it!

One of my favourite colour combinations for F/W 2011 is blue & black, a low-contrast but high-impact comboNavy blue works well, but honestly vibrant cobalt is the standout shade to pair with basic black for the perfect winter palette.

Blue & Black - 2

Blast away your winter blues with those beautiful shades! You can shop some of my favourite pieces below to keep your spirits up in the bitter cold. Enjoy!

Blue & Black - 3

Make a stunning appearance in this beautiful cobalt blue gown by Roksanda Ilincic or combine a black top with this stunning maxi length blue skirt by Raoul. To finish off your look, a clutch bag by Fendi and those eye-catching heels by Sergio Rossi would be the perfect choice.

Blue & Black - 4

Another way to work the trend is to focus on the accessories. You can wear a black outfit and add some blue shoes or a cobalt bag for an instant new season upgrade.
Here are my favourites:

1 Classic blue pumps by Christian Louboutin
2 Fur stole by Simonetta Ravizza
3 Bright blue suede boots by Sergio Rossi
4 Strappy python sandals (on sale!) by Alexandre Birman
5 Large hobo bag “Roady” by Yves Saint Laurent
6 Stunning vibrant cobalt suede pumps by Gianvito Rossi
7 A quilted bag by Marc Jacobs
8 A season’s must-have, the floppy hat by Borsalino

So if this winter somebody would ask you if you got the blues, you could proudly say yes!

Look of the Weekend: True Blue

True Blue

„Whoever said money doesn’t buy happiness didn’t know where to shop.“
–       Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl

So true, even that it is very superficial. But let’s absorb that karma and start shopping…. 
This weekend, I was invited to a friend’s birthday party and this is what I wore. I just adore this colour combination: cobalt blue and neon yellow. YSL’s summer make-up complements it perfectly.

The Miu Miu dress would also look good in combination with other bright hues like pink or green. This is a fun way to work this summer’s colour blocking trend.

IMG_4419

My look: Cobalt blue dress, neon yellow bag and matching shoes, all by Miu Miu. The earrings are Vintage Chanel.
