My Look: Fringe

The ’70s are in full swing – literally – as fringe is having a well-deserved moment. Shimmying and shivering, they offer a great way into the season’s retro mood.

My Look: Eclectic

Sandra_Bauknecht_Eclectic_1
Eclectic describes a combination of many different individual elements of styles. Speaking in fashion terms, it means that you can put together several pieces that seem odd together, but worn in one look make you stand out. Never forget to pay attention to the proportions. One of the most important things when you want to look incredibly stylish. Great news is that you can do it with the clothes in your own closet. Get going, ladies and have fun!

Thank you so much for your positive feedback about yesterday’s post talking about the perfect dinner. As I said, the way the table is set contributes to the ambiance of a meal as much as the food and wine. To take your invite to the next level, you can also match your outfit to the party’s theme.

My Look: Capri Wedding

Capri_Wedding_Sandra_Bauknecht

One weekend ago, I went to Capri to attend the most beautiful wedding in the Garden of Augustus. The gardens, designed in terraces overlooking the sea, can be considered a testament to the rich flora of the island, with various ornamental plants and flowers such as geraniums, dahlias and brooms. A perfect spot to get married! The dress code was bohemian glamour – couldn’t have been better.

My Look: My Piano Dream Life

Sandra_Bauknecht_Piano_Viktor_rOlf

This week, I flew to Paris for a great evening with Lancôme to celebrate their 80th anniversary and to interview Viktor & Rolf who were proud of the festivities for Flowerbomb, their iconic fragrance, that turned 10 this year.

Sandra_Bauknecht_Viktor_Rolf_Interview

I met the designer duo at the beautiful Peninsula Hotel Paris, that had opened its doors last year. The interview was absolutely amazing and I was so happy when I left to the airport that I sat down at the piano in the lobby. Playing my favorite instrument is something that gives me lots of relaxation and energy at once.

My look: Silk embellished top and black silk skirt, both by Viktor & Rolf (from a previous season), cutout leather platform pumps by Saint Laurent, Bamboo leather tote iconby Gucci, necklace and cuff, both by Chanel, ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery and Lady Excalibur watch by Roger Dubuis.

My piano dream life feels more like a fortissimo life but I adore my job and this gets me going! Next stop NYC and Florence, stay tuned for more…

My Look: Transparent

My Look: Not For Sale

Sandra_Bauknecht_Black_Gold_Chopard_Party_Cannes

The dress code for Chopard‘s Gold Party during the Cannes Film Festival (photos will be coming up shortly) said «glamourous with a touch of gold». A great opportunity to wear for the first time my new Chanel clutch that says: «Je ne suis pas en solde», which basically means «I am not for sale». The perfect statement for all non gold diggers!

I always like to add an unexpected twist to an outfit. This time with those metallic ankle boots that caught all attention when they peeped out under my gown.

My look: Cassandra backless bandage gown by Hervé LegerParis metallic leather ankle boots by Saint Laurent, «Je ne suis pas en solde» clutch and earrings, both by Chanel, Mitza ring by Dior Haute Joaillerie and Lady Excalibur watch by Roger Dubuis.

My Look: A Simple Truth

Sandra Bauknecht - A Simple Truth - Mauritius

A simple truth is that I like summer much better than winter and that I still remember those warm days I had in December when I I flew to Mauritius and stayed at the new beautiful LUX* Belle Mare resort. Even that it was raining most of the time, I could still wear something light.

My look: White lace embroidered slip dress iconby Thakoon, Rodizio clutch by Mary KatrantzouAlice leather sandals with pearls by Saint Laurent, Amulette necklace by Cartier, candy necklace by Chanel, Tiffany T bracelet in rose gold by Tiffany & Co. and Lady Excalibur watch by Roger Dubuis.

Speaking of which, while you are reading this post, I am on my way to sunny Los Angeles…
stay tuned for more.
