My Look: Beach Please

Beach please! This has definitely been «My Big Fat Greek Summer» so far. After being in the South of France for the month of July, I have spent August on several Greek islands. Santorini, Mykonos and now I am in Crete, on holidays from the holidays. I know it sounds bad but St. Tropez and Mykonos are all about the good life and party. Therefore I am happy to finally have some quiet and relaxing time with my daughter.

This outfit has become one of my favorites for the beach as you can easily transform it into an evening dinner look.

My look: Mare cropped fringed metallic crochet-knit halterneck jumpsuit by Missoni, Foulard Cheville scarf & leather sandalsicon by Christian Louboutin, green flap pocket bag with colorful strap (Look 5 Pre-collection Summer 2021) and multicolored bikini bandeau top and matching briefs, all by CHANEL, Rose Céleste necklace, Rose des Vents and Rose Céleste necklace, and Astro Dior aquarius necklace, all by Dior Fine Jewelry, andicon Audrey wayfarer sunglasses by Celine.

LoL, Sandra

The Louis Vuitton F/W 2011 Show


Decor 1

W 2011

W 2011Louis Vuitton’s F/W 2011 show had already the best invitation with a gorgeous tassel hanging from it. Marc Jacobs also touched the Parisian World War II-era like Miu Miu did but he added a fetish vibe which is said to be a metaphore for women’s obsession with bags. Talking about the power of a handbag which brand could be better than Louis Vuitton.

The show’s decor was absolutely amazing. Four elevators transported the models on stage. Porters for each opened the lift doors like in a luxury hotel.

The looks were all about peaked caps, sculpted jackets, jodhpur pants, tiny little briefs and below-the-knee pencil skirts.












Later on, French maids in plasticized lace and embellishments in the shape of masks and handcuffs started to exalt the imagination.





Kate Moss presented the last look waving a cigarette and looked smoking hot in both senses. If you are interested, you can watch the show by clicking here.

The must-have Louis Vuitton bag for F/W 2011 will be the reinterpreted 1958 top-handle Lockit bag. For the show, some versions had a diamond encrusted handcuff attached to it.
What can you say… such a Louis Vuitton handbag is for life.

Below you can see which celebrities were spotted at the show. I hope that you will like it.
