More Neon

Most Wanted Neon

With this cold weather outside, I just can’t get enough of spring’s vibrant bold colours. I am absolutely crazy for this neon lace-sleeve wool-blend crepe dress iconby Christopher Kane. It is such a great investment piece that you could wear for many different occasions.

Work the neon trend by adding the studded neon pink leather pumps iconby McQ Alexander McQueen and the contrast leather-trimmed neoprene clutch iconby Pierre Hardy. This is colour blocking par excellence.

Most Wanted

You can achieve a completely new look just by changing the accessories. Here are some ideas how to combine the gorgeous dress:

Frayed tweed shoulder bag iconby Miu Miu and leather and crochet-knit platform sandals iconby Missoni.

Leather and woven straw charm bag iconby Lanvin and python pumps by Alexandre Birman.

Happicolo leather shoulder bag iconby Lanvin and colour-block patent-leather sandals iconby Giuseppe Zanotti.

Sweet Charity python and leather shoulder bag iconby Christian Louboutin and Claudia embroidered suede pumps iconby Brian Atwood.

Madeleine patent-leather duffle bag iconby Chloé and Yolanda 100 patent-leather pumps by Christian Louboutin.

Happy Shopping!

Style Diary: Mel


My friend Mel looked so stunning for the “40 years, 40 hours” party in Venice that I had to share it with you.

Her elegant and stylish look: Lace dress by Tom Ford and black suede pumps byGucci.
Her makeup: Smokey eyes and nude lips finished off the look perfectly.


My Swiss readers can also admire her and her beautiful kids in the new annabelle magazine where she was part of a “mum-kids” photo shoot. A great idea showing different women sharing different views on how to dress their children.

Look of the Weekend: Extreme Colour

Extreme Colours

Yesterday, we had the most beautiful weather in Zurich. The sun was the perfect background for the baptism of one my best friend’s little baby girl. I chose a quite extreme coloured outfit and as I always say, don’t take fashion too serious, have fun and experiment. So my friends came up with some interesting associations like a Stabilo pen or one even knew the matching Mercedes car for me.

I loved the flowers and cake so much that I added some photos to this post.





Have a lovely Sunday!

Time Flies

Time flies. Yesterday, I celebrated my tenth civil wedding anniversary (I got married in Munich, Germany). Looking at the old photos, I was laughing out loud and had to share one with you. Gosh, I was so unhappy with my hair. Gerhard Meir, (my German readers will know him), had in the last minute one of his teasing attacks like he used to have with Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis in the 80s and this is how my hair turned out.

Nevertheless, it was a lovely day that I truly enjoyed every single minute. To put my hubby in a nostalgic mood, I wore the same dress like ten years ago which by coincidence I had bought in Zurich without knowing that I will end up one day here.

The religious wedding took place one week later in Marbella, Spain at the Marbella Club and so we will even have a bigger reason to celebrate next Thursday. Love you, hubby!

LoL, Sandra

Style Candy: Sarah Jessica Parker

Style Candy

Sarah Jessica Parker attended yesterday in London the S/S 2011 Burberry Prorsum fashion show in an outfit that made her the style candy of the day.

The trendsetting actress wore a brown lace dress from the F/W 2010 line by Burberry Prorsum together with a stunning leather jacket from the upcoming Resort 2011 collection. In case you do not like to wait and would love to save some money, mytheresa sells a very similiar one on sale.

Sarah Jessica Parker topped off her look with a pale rose bag by Alexander McQueen and some killer heels by Nicholas Kirkwood.

Thumbs up!
