My Look: Summer Black

Black is prized for its understated elegance and endless wearability, but it’s not always the obvious choice when it comes to summer dressing. However, worn correctly, it has year-round appeal. Add a fancy logo and a little sparkle to this iconic color and mercury rises…

My Look: Feathers

 Last Saturday, we celebrated my fiancé‘s 36th birthday bash at La Réserve Eden au Lac. Unfortunately due to the bad weather, we had to change the location and moved from the rooftop terrace to the restaurant downstairs. Nevertheless, the last minute adjustment didn‘t have any impact on the great ambiance and party mood of our guests. Everyone was so delighted to be back among dear friends, enjoying great food, fun live music and dancing.

I was extremely happy to finally wear my full-on feather gown. However, I changed for the second part of the night. Stay tuned, I will show you my other outfit soon!

Dynasty For Your Ears

In the ’80s everything was large and bold, from hairstyles to shoulder pads to earrings. Power dressing and the influence of television soap series such as «Dynasty» played an important role. Jewelry became more than just a fashion accessory; it was about making a statement.


Eighties earrings were large and dramatic and a staple for any ’80s woman. Clip-on earrings were popular as pierced styles were often too heavy to wear and faux gemstones were all the rage.
Here is how to work ’80s «Dynasty» earrings trend for F/W 2018:
