My Look: Escape the Night

As promised here comes the second outfit from my fiancé’s 36th birthday bash at La Réserve Eden au Lac last Saturday. I quickly had changed right before the birthday cake arrived and we indulged in a glass of Louis XIII. Afterwards we moved up to La Muña that had transformed into a night club. If you ask yourself, why did I change? I love dancing and that works best in something comfy yet stylish. Therefore I went for this fun leopard-print stretch-jersey jumpsuit.

My look: Off-the-shoulder leopard-print stretch-jersey jumpsuiticon by Halpern, Bianca leather sandals by Saint Laurent, Devotion mini leather bag by Dolce & Gabbana, leather and suede waist belt by Balmain, and logo earrings by CHANEL.

We truly escaped the night last week, the party went on until 8 am…

LoL, Sandra

Dolce & Gabbana Rosa

The pleasure of the family that meets at the dining table and the conviviality that survives even in the delicate moment: Dolce & Gabbana and Donnafugata renew their collaboration by giving life to Rosa, a new rosé wine with a fruity and floral personality.

The perfect ambassador of two Made in Italy excellences, united by their unconditional love for Sicily, passion for work and attention to detail.

Born from a vintage of 2019, Rosa is characterized by an original blend of two of the most important autochthonous vines of the island’s tradition: Nerello Mascalese and Nocera.

With a refined pink tinge, this wine is defined by an elegant bouquet of jasmine, enriched with delicate hints of wild strawberry, peach and bergamot. It has a very pleasant fragrance, minerality and persistence.

Perfect for aperitifs, raw fish, vegetarian dishes and delicate meats. It is excellent to be served at 10-12° C. Rosé is always a great idea in summer, and indulging in a Dolce & Gabbana moment is even better… for more information, click here please.

LoL, Sandra

My Look: Feathers

 Last Saturday, we celebrated my fiancé‘s 36th birthday bash at La Réserve Eden au Lac. Unfortunately due to the bad weather, we had to change the location and moved from the rooftop terrace to the restaurant downstairs. Nevertheless, the last minute adjustment didn‘t have any impact on the great ambiance and party mood of our guests. Everyone was so delighted to be back among dear friends, enjoying great food, fun live music and dancing.

I was extremely happy to finally wear my full-on feather gown. However, I changed for the second part of the night. Stay tuned, I will show you my other outfit soon!

My Look: Class of 2020

This week was so emotional for me. I had to watch my daughter’s graduation via Youtube as parents were not allowed at the ceremony due to the current corona situation. I am so proud of her and cannot believe that my little girl will be leaving soon to study in Boston. When I picked her up, I wore my very own varsity sweater. I will be off to Saint Laurent university… just saying.

My look: Crewneck varsity logo sweatericon by Saint Laurent, appliquéd high-rise tapered jeansicon by Gucci, pencil box clutchicon by Dolce & Gabbanastretch-knit pumps by Prada, and Aurora oversized butterfly acetate sunglassesicon by Zimmermann.

Beach Towels

Vacation plans may be on pause, but sunshine is not. Make the most of the warmer weather closer to home with the most beautiful beach towels that will make you feel like being in a 5-star hotel in your own garden or during sundowners on the balcony.

My Look: Wisteria Lane

If you are living in Zurich, you will love a stroll through Belvoirpark with its wisteria-covered lanes and beautiful garden arrangements. Here you see me enjoying the lovely flowers that matched my outfit on a sunny afternoon this week. Isn’t it wonderful that we also have a Wisteria Lane like in Desperate Housewives?

My Look: Pretty Preppy

Since yesterday, the restaurants and shops are open again in Switzerland – however, under certain restrictions, as the next stage of the country’s gradual reopening of society. I took the opportunity to dress up and see my girlfriends for lunch which was lovely. Nevertheless, being in the city doesn’t feel the same yet and shopping is more of a frustrating nightmare as you are not really allowed to touch or try anything. I will stay with online shopping for a while, that’s for sure!

My look: Satin-lapel single-breasted wool-blend coaticon and daisy fur and crystal-embellished necklaceicon, both by Dolce & Gabbana, printed satin shirt iconby Versace, FF-jacquard pleated cotton-blend jersey midi skirticonFF logo wool-blend headband, and logo-print mesh and rubber sock knee boots, all by Fendi, dark blue 2.55 bag in velvet by CHANEL.

My Look: Digital Red Carpet

Today’s post is for a good cause, tonight taking place exclusively on Instagram (@thedigitalcarpet), I will wear one of my favorite gowns ever. The Digital Carpet is a live event and everyone can join. No matter where you are, it starts at 7pm sharp and will be a moment of virtual escapism and fashion fairytale mirroring iconic red-carpet moments. Choose a dress code, get ready, send your look and donate to the International Committee of the Red Cross.

For my dear readers, here is my look beforehand. A red stunning gown created by LA-based fashion designer Monique Lhuillier. The daughter of a French diplomat always admired the lavish gowns her mother and other stylish guests would wear to high-profile events, moving her to create her eponymous eveningwear label. Michelle Obama, Taylor Swift and Emma Watson are all fans of the intricately detailed and expertly crafted silhouettes.

My look: Embellished one-sleeve tulle gownicon by Monique Lhuillier, gold bar clutch bag by CHANEL, gold red crystal scared heart earrings by Dolce & Gabbana, and leather platform pumps by Gucci.

I hope that I will get to wear this gown soon on a real red carpet though and don’t need to wait for Christmas …

My Look: Go Girl

Go Girl! It has been raining now almost over a week and you better be back in boots and shell jackets. This Alexander Wang denim look includes two of the coolest pieces I have in my closet, a very tight denim shirt and those hot pants that are layered to look as though you have a denim jacket tied around your waist.

For my very attentive readers who have been asking me why I am enjoying two different pools. The answer is simple, I am currently in between houses. My fiancé and I are reconstructing our new home and we will be moving in in the end of the year.

Let me know if you would be interested in seeing the interior design process. Dressing myself or a home is something I truly love to do. And our new house will be so amazing.

My look: Belted shell jacketicon and buckled leather and shell platform bootsicon, both by Prada, textured leather-trimmed denim shirt and tie-front distressed denim shortsicon, both by Alexander Wang, Boy bag with chains by CHANEL, and plissé sunglassesicon by Dolce Gabbana.
