My Look: Life Is Too Short To Wait

Life is too short to wait … I decided not waste time on unimportant matters or unworthy emotions. Life is also too short to wait for a special event to wear a fabulous outfit. During my month here in London – I am having such a good time in this vibrant city – I love to dress up and go out.  This has become one of my favorite looks.

My look: Lace turtleneck bodysuit, matching lace leggings, croc-effect vinyl mini skirt, and laser-cut leather corset belt, all by Alaïa, Cherry leather platform ankle boots by Saint Laurent, and black satin pochette (Métiers d’Art 2023 Collection Paris – Dakar) by CHANEL.

My Look: New Proportions

For F/W 2022 Dolce & Gabbana were challenging the dress codes for the metaverse. The outcome? Superheroine proportions in vibrant colors, a new tailoring that focused on a triangle silhouette with extremely broad shoulders that signal power and confidence.

My look: Cropped wool-ponte blazer, and matching wrap-effect wool-blend ponte midi skirt, both by Dolce & Gabbana, lace bralette, lace leggings and chain and leather waist belt, all by CHANEL, Medusa Aevitas embellished satin platform pumpsicon by Versace, and graffiti classic city tote bag by Balenciaga, leather, faux pearl and crystal chokericon, and silver-tone, crystal and faux pearl clip earrings, both by iconAlessandra Rich.

Delicate Lace

Lace 1

Thanks to the remaining lingerie trend, lace is the connecting thread from boudoir to the office to the dance floor. The most oustanding lace designs were seen on the F/W 2010 runways with black being the dominant colour. The return of womanhood is one of the biggest themes this season and the delicate, sensual fabric is the perfect addition. It makes women feel and look very ladylike and sexy.

No worries, it does not mean that you need to go half-naked. Inject new season`s attitude into your wardrobe with just one ultra-feminine piece. A lace blazer like the D&G one for example makes a fabulous addition to your basics collection. Combine it with a pair of jeans for instant cool chic.

Those lace dresses are cut to create a defined silhouette and will make heads turn after you. These elegant cocktail and black tie pieces are an investment in timeless style. Wear one thing lace and accessorize minimally.

Accessories are always a great way to make a fashion statement. But just one or two at a time, do not overdo the lace addition. Too much is too much!
Stockings, leggings or gloves in the trend material are super hot. I am crazy for the handmade cuffs by Aurélie Biderman. They are made of vintage lace dipped in blackened silver or gold. So beautiful!
