My Look: Weekend Edition


I am completely in love with my new Chloé sweater that is the perfect cozy piece to wear at the weekend with its flocked finish and chic pastel-orange hue. Recently, I went through my closet and spotted some fabulous items from previous seasons that feel again like brand new wearing them, in keeping with my motto not to throw out anything. Each piece in your wardrobe will have its time again and combined with new season pieces even help you to add that certain twist.

My look: Flocked wool and cashmere-blend sweater iconby Chloé, apricot-coloured jersey dress by Miu Miu, Monogram Denim Sunrise bag with Foxy fur tail and tassel charm by Louis Vuitton from the S/S 2010 collection, boots by Dolce & Gabbana from the F/W 2006 collection. Earrings by Dolce & Gabbana and snake ring by Roberto Cavalli.

On my nails: Sequined manicure by Ciaté.

LoL, Sandra

Ciaté Sequined Manicure


Ciaté offers amazing three-dimensional DIY manicures and the newest hit is the British brand’s Sequined Manicure. Just in time for the party season, when sequins are always appropriate if not essential, this nail trend seems just right.

Well… are you ready to try it out for yourself now?


I tried this fabulous mani set that features all the products you need to give your nails a glam-over. As you can see, it works very easily.

The only negative side effect is that the nails are very rough afterwards so that you have to be really careful when putting on your tights or going through your hair. To take it off, you will need a nail polish remover with acetone and plan some time.

Ciaté Sequined Manicure Kits are available in 3 colour blends and retail for £15 each, available for example at Selfridges in the UK or Sephora in the US.

LoL, Sandra
