My Look: Now Showing

Now showing at Sandra’s Closet: «The back pack is back». At least this is what is written on the cassette sticker with DIY scrawl on my newest collector’s item: the Louis Vuitton S/S 2020 Video Tape Clutch.

Yesterday I had a quick stopover in Zurich to change my luggage as I am leaving today for Sylt. I have so many great things to show your from my travels, so please stay tuned. I tried to do a little digital detox for the past two weeks and it worked pretty well.

My look: Zinnia halterneck polka-dot linen and cotton-blend voile jumpsuit by Zimmermannicon, printed silk turban by Fendi, video tape clutch by Louis Vuittonquilted leather mulesicon by Bottega Veneta, cat-eye marbled-acetate sunglasses by Gucci, GG Running 18-karat white gold diamond hoop earringsicon, GG Running diamond X ringicon, and GG Running double diamond ring with chain, all by Gucci Fine Jewellery, and Pasha C chronograph in steel (2000) by Cartier.

The Pasha watch will be relaunched in September by Cartier, so I thought it is a great idea to dust mine and sport it again. To find out more, click here please.

LoL, Sandra

My Look: Villa d’Este

Greetings from Lake Como, where I am staying at one of my favorite hotels in the world, Villa d’Este. It is simply a heaven in one of Italy’s most desirable locations: Cernobbio. This Renaissance era palace is a portal to another world, with a touch of Italian Old World charm it is a true luxurious experience. Walking through the beautiful gardens, I am wearing my favorite summer uniform, a floral Zimmermann gown and a Bottega Veneta bag. The linen fabrics are easy to pack and look great even a little bit wrinkled.

My look: Zinnia floral-print linen midi dressicon and Aurora oversized butterfly acetate sunglassesicon, both by Zimmermann, Almost Bare metallic leather sandalsicon by Aquazzura, Jodie mini knotted leather toteicon by Bottega Veneta and Royal Oak 37mm 18-karat frosted rose gold watch by Audemars Piguet.

My Look: Summer Black

Black is prized for its understated elegance and endless wearability, but it’s not always the obvious choice when it comes to summer dressing. However, worn correctly, it has year-round appeal. Add a fancy logo and a little sparkle to this iconic color and mercury rises…

My Look: Mary Mare

My beloved Mary Katrantzou is giving me wanderlust while enjoying my staycation. Mary Mare is a seasonless, year-round capsule line, inspired by sunny, oceanfront destinations: Cannes, Nice, Greece, Portofino, Monte Carlo, Venice, Dubrovnik, the Côte d’Azur, and more. You saw me already sporting the sea-shell print in June (for the previous post, click here please).

Now, it is time to enjoy my newest pieces at the pool in my new house. I especially adore the signature Postage Stamps print, alluding to the nostalgia of writing postcards to our loved ones while on vacation. Taking inspiration from the 10th anniversary collection, this print was reimagined in her London studio and adorns my bathing suit.

My Look: Comfy Glam

Last week, I indulged in a shopping spree at the Falconeri store in Zurich, located at Bahnhofstrasse 104 on the first floor, on top of Intimissimi.

My Look: Glamour at the Pool

With all the safety precautions I am honestly so not in the mood for traveling somewhere. And to be honest, there is no need to with these beautiful sunny temperatures in Switzerland at the moment. I love my pool and garden so much. It is the best place to chill, relax and work. Dressing up at home is also fun … in this sense, I hope you are enjoying your Sunday!

My Look: I Belong to The Hot Pants Club

Gosh, how much I enjoy those hot and sunny temperatures. I am such a summer girl – wearing hot pants and a great top is always easy, comfy and fun. In case you’re wondering, where the term «hot pants» is coming from, here is a quick explanation. No, they aren’t called «hot pants» just because women look «hot» in them. Which we most certainly do, of course!

The name is aligned with a movement of women who broke out of the accepted forms of women’s dress embracing all their curves for the first time in the ’50s and rose to new heights in the ’70s. It was hot shocking hot news at that time! And still today, the style proves its place as one of the most diverse and controversial fashion trends.

In order to avoid crossing the fine line between fashion and faux pas when putting on those short shorts, consider the occasion well you are wearing them to! Having fun on the playground in my garden is definitely one that is suitable. Just saying….

My look: Udalia fringed paneled Lyocell and cotton-blend vesticon, Eneida frayed denim shortsicon, and shell and beaded bracelet, all by Isabel Marant, Go Logo Rider 35 leather ankle boots by Valentino, Audrey wayfarer sunglasses by Célineicon, Nina striped leather toteicon and matching Nina striped crocheted cashmere tote cover, both by Gabriela Hearst, J’adior bracelet set in black and white Dior Oblique cotton by Dior, chain necklace with heart charm by CHANEL, and Pasha C chronograph in steel (2000) by Cartier.

In order not to miss out, don’t forget that you can order those beautiful Gabriela Hearst totes only until July 13, 2020 HEREicon. 10% of the profits from the sale of the bags will go to The Save the Children Fund.
