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: Côte d’Azur striped silk-georgette cover upIbiza postage-stamp print swimsuit, Mykonos striped triangle bikiniicon, all by Mary Katrantzou, Tallow cat-eye sunglassesicon by Zimmermann, Loubi Bee Alta 130 leather platform sandalsicon by Christian Louboutin, pink embossed leather shoulder bagicon by Fendi, floppy straw hat by Louis Vuitton (Cruise 2011), Ras Du Cou silver-tone, shell and beaded necklaceicon, and Aimable gold-tone horn necklace, both by Isabel Marant.

To a Bright Future

Less is Modern

Lush colour is S/S 2011’s biggest style story. An emerald green dress is so hot at the moment, especially combined with some bright accessories for the ultimate style factor.
Enhance your mood and put a spring into your wardrobe.

Lanvin3The reason why I am showing you this is that I am the birthday girl today and this was part of my outfit last night:
I wore the emerald green dress by Lanvin Cruise 2011,  combined with red silk pumps by Prada and a purple statement necklace by Lanvin, both from previous seasons. The perfect play on electric brights with some colour blocking.

To a bright future!

LoL, Sandra

Thank you girls for such a fun night!

Two gifts were truly outstanding: The gorgeous Louis Vuitton Cruise 2011 floppy straw hat (Thank you, M-A-C girls, for the best gift ever!!!) and my new Canon EOS 500D camera that I can finally take some better shots.


Here are the first two photos I took with my new camera:
