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.

Nothing Says Summer Like Espadrilles

My Look: Maiden Shanghai

Maiden Shanghai is a new exploration of authentic Chinese cooking in a spectacular setting at the new FIVE Zurich hotel that will open its doors next week. With dramatic views over the Swiss city, it contains a bold dining area and outdoor terrace, aas well as a private dining room. The decor playfully fuses the traditional with the boldly modern, creating spaces that feel open yet connected.

The interior design served as the perfect background to wear for the first time this fun look from the collaboration between French Haute Couture label Jean Paul Gaultier (JPG) and stylist of the moment Lotta Volkova.

My Look: Loubi Love

This post might be a little bit more daring than others but those Louboutin pieces deserve attention and with my blog being down, I had time to come up with some unusual ideas. It was raining cats and dogs outside, when I took the photos by myself with a tripod and the timer in my beautiful suite at the Ritz-Carlton New York located at Central Park.

My Look: All Good Baby

Welcome to EL&N London’s most Instagrammable hot spot. Everything here is irresistibly chic, pink perfection with flower walls, pink interiors and alternative lattes taking social media by storm.

EL&N stands for Eat, Live and Nourish. I came across this place by coincidence when I was looking for a location to shoot. I couldn’t have worn a better outfit fitting the interior, don’t you think?
I went for a Turkish Delight Hot Chocolate, a rose flavored white hot chocolate covered with whipped cream, served with two Turkish delights, that was very yummy.

My Look: Gstaad or St Moritz

Do you enjoy skiing in the most luxurious and sought-after resorts in Switzerland? The dilemma of whether to go to Gstaad, or St. Moritz comes down to personal preference. I used to spend my winters in St. Moritz for many years but today I prefer Gstaad.

The beautiful Gstaad Palace is my home away from home and those photos were taken inside the La Fromagerie restaurant that offers delicious cheese treats and other Swiss specialities. The Alpine resort’s blend of glamour, lifestyle, sport and pristine nature outshines everything. However you are far more certain of getting snow in December in St Moritz than Gstaad. Both have a high profile social scene. St. Moritz, touted as the ski resort «on top of the world,» and Gstaad advertises with «come up and slow down». The choice is yours and the look would work for both.

My look: Argyle-pattern rollneck jumper and matching argyle jacquard midi skirt, both by Balmain, St. Moritz Voyage appliquéd embroidered canvas clutch by Olympia Le Tan, Alminette red suede pumpsicon by Christian Louboutin, and classic large Impatiens earrings by Oscar de la Renta.

My Look: A Tale of Winter

This was my outfit that I wore to the wonderful evening at the Dolder Grand with Glenmorangie. I am such a big Zimmermann fan. The creations are so feminine and easy to wear. Combined with muted colors or black, the dresses also work their magic during winter time.

My look: Concert embroidered floral linen-blend lawn dressicon by Zimmermann, Kronobotte 85 leather knee boots by Christian Louboutin, Kelly So Black in box leather by Hermès, and clip earrings by CHANEL (Métiers d’Art 2012 Paris – Bombay).
