Dress: Scarlett & Jo Couture
As promised, here comes my look for the Plus Size Fashion Days 2016 opening party! It was a motto party and the dress code of the evening was “Black & Gold and All That Glitters” – I took it all very seriously and already prepared my outfit months before. You know I love being overdressed, and when there’s a party, you can do so many things. I’m so happy that I saw lots of wonderfully dressed women (and men!) that night!
Back in January at the photo shoot with Scarlett & Jo in London, I saw → the golden Couture dress for the first time when Ana wore it – and I fell in love. I had to wait a bit until it was finally available online, and as soon as I knew the dress code, I told my friends there that this was the dress I wanted to wear for the party. And I also asked them for a little goody for my husband – a matching bow tie made of the same fabric as my dress. And I’m so thankful that they made it happen! :) These guys are simply amazing and I’m so happy that I’ve been part of their team as their brand ambassador for almost a year now, isn’t this crazy? Time is a little runner, haha! ;)
So, this dress is absolutely stunning and I guess you can’t go wrong with it for the festive season, especially Christmas. To be honest, when I wore it, it reminded me of the → “Nürnberger Christkind” and her lovely costume (maybe because of the sleeves). Don’t know if you all know the “Christkindlesmarkt”, but it’s huge and one of the best-known Christmas markets in the world, so if you don’t know it yet and are coming to Germany, you should have a look! :) But that’s just a fun fact. ;) I’m wearing the dress in a UK size 16, as usual, and as you can see, it fits perfectly. I’d say that if you have more bust, this dress will still work for you, as I had the feeling that there’s enough space left for more. :) The fabric is pretty elastic and has a great touch and feel – it definitely deserves the “Couture” stamp!
For the glam effect, I decided to let the dress speak for itself but add fancy black accessories and do another matchy-matchy thing with the clutch and my lips – it just screamed for black lipstick (well, in my case it’s eye liner). ;) For lots of photos of us party people, have a look at → Wundercurves! :)
