In cooperation with C&A.
Last week, I went to a very special event with five amazing girls – from left to right: Cécile, Sofia, Farina, me, Sophia and Verena. We were invited by → C&A to talk about strong women and how fashion influences personalities, and for a makeover which each of us did for another girl. I was styled by Sophia and had the pleasure to dress up Verena. It was an exciting day and we had lots of fun together, as you can see in the pictures! ;)
There’s also a video up on the → C&A Blog, don’t forget to watch it! ;)
I’ve already talked about the effect of fashion and everything that’s possible with it in my → last post, but I want to say again how fascinating it is that fashion is able to either influence and enhance someone’s personality or change it (in a positive way). However you feel on a day, you can make your style look like it or give it a completely different touch. You can accentuate special features of yourself or – if you feel like it – hide something you’re not 100% happy with. Fashion is for everyone and that’s why we shouldn’t be limited in our possibilities. Even though our bodies are different, we should all be able to wear whatever we want, whether we’re skinny or fat, tall or short, blonde or brunette,… Let’s all express ourselves through fashion!
Dressing up someone else can be super easy if you know this person. It’s funny how you instantly know what you want her to wear when you do this kind of makeover. And even if you don’t, it’s cool to see how you can make the person look and maybe even influence her own style. It was great to see our makeovers at the end of the day – everybody chose the right look for the other girl – and I think that we all look absolutely amazing!
Early in the morning – but first, breakfast! ;)
I really liked C&A’s collections (the pieces you can see in our photos will be available soon, some of them already are) because I only remembered it from the time I was a kid or teenager when my mom used to buy something for me at C&A (you may remember → this dress, it’s always been one of my favorites – and I should definitely wear it again). It’s been a very long time since I last were in a C&A store, and until last week I had totally forgotten that you can shop C&A online – so now I’m pretty happy with this surprise cause their clothes are actually really nice and even more up-to-date and stylish than before. Somehow, C&A wasn’t on my radar anymore before this event, but now this has changed! :)
The dress I’m wearing after my makeover is definitely a favorite and will be available from tomorrow. ;) I also adore the poncho-cardi (hard to describe since it doesn’t have actual sleeves, but it also doesn’t really look like a poncho) and I fell in love with Sofia’s boots, which I also brought home directly from the photo shoot. ;) Find the → C&A – XL Special here! And throughout the week, you can find all our looks on the → C&A – Blog. ;)
Serious face while searching for the right outfit for Verena… ;)
Sofia’s cute little baby boy Karl – heartbreaker of the day! ♥
