From → glamorous to casual in one blog post. ;) This is one of my everyday looks. Especially for traveling, I like it loose and comfy – jumpsuits are my favorite choice (even though you have to get naked if you want to pee, haha!) and of course there have to be sneakers. Because traveling with high heels is kind of unnecessary. ;) A cardi for when it’s cold (like on a plane) and comfy underwear like that bustier that may be seen (I mean: flashy pink – should be seen, right? ;)). Ready for takeoff!

• Review | Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani – Lips & Cheeks •

It’s time for another beauty review! I already reviewed the → Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette and today I’ve got almost all colors of the lipstick and lip liner range for you, plus a first glance at the blush palette.

Since the eye shadows that Gwen created with Urban Decay were mostly neutral, I was expecting the lip colors to be bright and colorful. Actually, the collection has a lot of red shades, plus some pink and nude, and – of course! – it includes the absolutely typical Gwen color: a wonderful, bright and matte red. The → lip liner colors match those of the lipsticks, so actually nothing that’s too interesting, but they’re good and extremely long-lasting (with a bit of a stain effect), so that’s all I want to say in this review.

The → blush palette is probably the most varied piece of the whole Gwen Stefani collection, since the colors are pretty different, with different finishes. But, as is the case with the eye shadow palette, there are a few neutrals. For fair skin like mine, this palette is also good for contouring, so this is a small bonus point. ;)

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I’ve got the perfect dress for those of you who plan to go out for a luxurious romantic dinner for two. :) And by “I’ve got one”, I literally mean that I’ve got one for you, because one of you can win this dress in her size, just in time for Valentine’s Day on Sunday. :)

Like every dress from Scarlett & Jo, this is another perfect curve-hugging dress. Made of soft lace that falls beautifully around the legs (love the fishtail!), it makes your figure look stunning (I’m sure you can all see what I mean!). This time, I went for a UK size 18, just because I wanted it not to be too tight around my hips, and it was a good choice. So if you have wide hips like me, you should consider buying it a size up – or if you’re the happy winner, just tell me the size you need. ;)

Here’s how to win:

1 • like → Scarlett & Jo on Facebook – you can also like my Facebook page → here, but that’s optional. ;)
and
2 • leave a comment here under this blog post (if you don’t comment via Facebook, please make sure to leave your e-mail address, which won’t be visible to everyone, just me – so I can contact you afterwards) telling me what you’d love to do on Valentine’s Day,
all that
3 • by tomorrow, Tuesday, February 9 (so the winner can receive the dress by Saturday!)

The winner is Vanessa Myslinski – congrats!

It’s time for a new culotte on the blog – the denim version! At the Zizzi blogger event in Berlin, we were allowed to pick a few favorites from current and (near future) coming collections – these pants caught my attention instantly and I was lucky to get the only ones in my size. I also brought another pair of jeans home with me because I really love Zizzi’s cut of jeans, they fit me best and are absolutely great.

Now this is my first styling with this special culotte and it’s also one of my favorite outfits ever because I just fell in love with the whole combination of blue, white and red with golden details (French somehow, right?). Hat, bag and boots in black round it off and the make-up is mostly neutral (I really love this lipstick, which I topped with a bit of lip gloss).

Well, that’s what I want to see when I visit a fair for plus-size fashion. I want to see modern stuff, stylish clothes. Things that skinny people would also wear. Clothes for everyone, not for the fat outsider who wants to be hidden in a ochre-colored sack with no real shape. I want something that makes my fashionista heart beat faster, something that makes me want to get creative and play around with it. Something that screams FASHION! and WEAR ME!, something that makes me look amazing and want to step outside and say: “Look at me! I’m fat AND fashionable, fat AND stylish, fat AND beautiful!” – and I’m absolutely allowed to say and feel this, just like everyone else.

So yes, this is a love declaration to Zizzi – because they don’t mean to hide fat people but to make them feel like a part of everything, of fashion and looking great. Thank you for that!
