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

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!
