I Was a Blogger Before I Knew It

1999_Blogger_Before_I Knew_it

Last weekend, when I was looking for a picture with me wearing my Vela backpack by Prada in the ’90s (see yesterday’s post here), I came across so many old pictures and of course I couldn’t stop going through them. One thing that made me really laugh out loud was that I took outfit post photos more than 10 years before becoming a blogger. Call me a visionary…

Those ones were taken in a hotel room in South Africa before heading to dinner. I wore a jumpsuit by Escada with a little cardigan by Ralph Lauren, sandals by Prada, sunglasses by Gucci and a little charm necklace by Tiffany & Co. Something I would still wear but I have to admit that I am not so sure about my blonde hair and my facial expression is priceless, OMG! Isn’t it a good thing that I like myself so much better today…?!

Wishlist Wednesday: Blue

Blue

Dive into blue! Just in time for spring, many designers looked to the water and sky for inspiration. Especially royal blue with its refined elegance translates easy into the new season. I am in love with jumpsuits that are absolutely trending at the moment. Head to toe in this sophisticated shade is truly an eye-catcher.

Get the look: Carrie cape-effect silk-chiffon and stretch-crepe jumpsuit by Haney, Vivi embellished lizard-effect leather shoulder bag by Sophia Webster, Wild Thing fringed suede sandals by Aquazzura and pompom-embellished woven straw sunhat by Yosuzi.

Below you can find some more inspirations of the S/S 2016 runways …
… enjoy the rest of your week! Kisses from NYC!

My Look: Believe You Can

Sandra_Bauknecht_Get-the_look_She_Believed

«Believe you can and you are halfway there.»
– Theodore Roosevelt

I wore those Chloé pieces to the PKZ party last Thursday in Zurich. You can call them already vintage as they are from 2007. Wine improves with age and some clothes do as well. I remember buying them on a trip with a girlfriend to Paris before I started my blog. I believed I could and I did. Never give up, be kind and always believe in yourself, that’s the recipe! And of course don’t be stuck, always add something new… in this case the bag and the boots.

My look: Curry colored short jacket, ruffled white blouse and jumpsuit, all by Chloé, Rockstud leather-trimmed knee boots by Valentinoicon and Soho mini textured-leather shoulder bag by Gucci and earrings by Miu Miu.

In Amsterdam I stayed at The College Hotel which I can absolutely recommend. One night, I had dinner with my Dutch friends at Nacional, which is a great restaurant reminiscent of a Parisian brasserie. Afterwards, we had drinks at Bo Cinq followed by some dancing at Jimmy Woo.

My look: Leopard jacquard blazer and iconTribute patent-leather sandals, bothicon by Saint Laurent, black jumpsuit by Michael Kors, satin clutch by Prada, diamond bracelet by Vainard Fine Jewellery, diamond ring and rose necklace, both by Piaget and Amulette necklace by Cartier.

Celebrity Style: Elle Macpherson

Elle Macpherson Celebrity Style in Stella McCartney

At the age of 50, Elle Macpherson looks radiant and still has the perfect physique that gave her the nickname “The Body” in the ’80s. Personally speaking, I think she is one of the most beautiful women on earth. Last Wednesday, the Australian supermodel sported a great look as she turned up at the Hollywood studios for an appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! last Wednesday. Jumpsuits are extremely up to date this season and Elle shows how this trend works the best.

Get Elle’s look: Fringed knitted jacket iconby Finds + Tim Ryan, Monia polka-dot jacquard silk jumpsuit iconby Stella McCartney, Jane leather sandals iconby Saint Laurent and Shopping U Small leather tote by Roger Vivier.

Luxury Autumn Weekend

Autumn Weekend

Boost your autumn weekend with a last-minute treat from this edit. After four weeks of fashion craziness, I finally slept in in my beloved satin-crepe pajama seticon by Donna Karan Sleepwear. Today, I will enjoy to the fullest in this cozy bleached out slub jersey jumpsuit iconby Eberjey.

While the amazing smell of a scented candle iconby Fornasetti starts already filling my living room, I snuggle on the couch with this hardcover book ‘The World According to Karliconpublished by Thames & Hudson and listen to the 53 Sound iconby Visionaire. Later I will treat myself with my beloved jasmine and lily healing mask by Chantecaille and prepare some posts for next week. Pure heaven! And no photos today….

Star Style: Heidi Klum in Closed

Heidi Closed

Heidi Klum was spotted this weekend on the streets of Los Angeles in a gorgeous military green jumpsuit (light chino, 100% cotton, 279,00 €) byCLOSED.

She paired her casual look with a comfy pair of sneakers. My favourites at the moment are the Tokyo suede and patent-leather high-top sneakers iconby Jimmy Choo. Add a pair of metal-frame aviator sunglasses by Gucci and a statement ring, such as the blackened oxidized-silver filigree ring by Bottega Veneta for a fabulous blend of cool and chic.

The perfect look for a mum-on-the-run!
