Must-have: The Veiled Beanie

The veiled Beanie

When my eyes spotted the net-trimmed ribbed knitted beanie icondesigned by Stephen Jones on the Jil Sander S/S 2012 runway last fall, I was asking myself why had nobody before come up with the idea to combine a casual beanie with the glamourous feel of a veil. The outcome is so outstanding. Needless to say, this veiled hat has been on every fashion lover’s shopping list and it made its way into my closet, too. As the Jil Sander version (available in blue and white) is pretty expensive, you might want to try doing it yourself.

What do you need?

A sloughy knitted beanie, French veil netting (Available at fabric stores. To order, please click here), sewing thread of a similiar colour, a sewing needle and a pair of scissors.

How to do it?

This is pretty easy and doesn’t require advanced sewing skills. Just attach the French veil netting inside of the turn-up of the beanie. Turn the it over and sew the bottom edge of the netting to the beanie with a single stitch to the middle point.

I attached the photos of my beanie below for you to see it more in detail!

Have fun sewing!

LoL, Sandra

Blogger Goodies from the Gucci Adventure


To conclude my Gucci adventure in Italy, I would like to share those fun pics of the other bloggers who were also part of Gucci’s 16 handpicked style bloggers participating. Most of us knew each other before, so it felt like going on a trip with old friends.


Betty (Le Blog de Betty) from Paris with me at the Sheraton Diana Majestic hotel in Milan where the Gucci show took place.


Her nails were from the Lady Gaga workshop at Barneys in NYC.


Those feather cuffs are from Topshop and she put them over her leather jacket, love it!

Misha and I

This is American-born Misha from Tokyo (Tokyo Fashion Diaries) who loves wigs. I adore her crazy and eclectic style.


On her colourful nails were little pumpkins painted that actually looked like the Vivienne Westwood logo.


Outside the Gucci show with Tina (Bagsnob) from Dallas and famous Bryan Boy.


You know that already, I love him!


Tina with Ingrid (The Bag Hag Diaries) who carried the amazing Céline python box bag in neon yellow (remember my fluo pink version?) and me before the show.


Outside the Gucci manufacture: Lovely Emily (Fashion Foie Gras) from London with Tina (Bagsnob) and me.

Tina Gucci Bag

Tina got all excited seeing how her new 1970 Gucci bag is made.


Sexy back!

My Gucci Bag

My vintage Gucci bag.


At the Gucci Museo: Misha looked like being part of the installation at the museum’s contemporary art space.

I truly enjoyed the whole trip! And I hope that you did, too…

Bloglovin’ Awards 2012 in NYC


Tonight, I went after the Tommy Hilfiger F/W 2012 show straight to the Bloglovin’ Awards (I promise you that there will be soon a Bloglovin’ button to the left to follow me there).

The event took place at the famous Edison Ballroom right off Broadway. I spotted many familiar faces and had a truly good time.

Derek Blasberg presented the awards and needless to say was very sarcastic and humorous.

Firenze4Ever Styling Lab: Modern Princess


Here is my second look from the LuisaViaRoma Styling Lab. I called it “Modern Princess” and believe me I felt like one in this stunning extraordinary gown on the streets of Florence when people were starring at me. It was a very funny situation, especially when Bryan Boy and I were standing together (see photos at the end).

You can shop the look by clicking on the highlighted text:
