Dress: C&A Yessica
[Werbung | Advertisement – collaboration with C&A]
I proudly present: the only dress in my C&A collaboration! ;) Since the festivities are approaching, I think it’s a great idea to show you a basic but elegant style which you can easily make your own by accessorizing it your way. I’m thinking about a nice belt, a sophisticated blazer, a colorful clutch or popping shoes. I went for a complete classic look and let the dress shine alone – only combined with black patent heels and red lipstick.
I’m wearing a EU size 46, that’s why the dress could be a little tighter around my waist, but as usual, it has to fit around the hips, so I need to go a size up. But as you can see, it also works nicely without a belt and still looks beautifully fitted at the waist (and that’s something you don’t find too often in the plus-size area since brands seem to believe that when you’re fat, you don’t have a waist anymore – especially at brands who sell from 34 to e.g. 54, you can see a huge difference when you look at the “skinnier” piece and put the plus-size version next to it: the smaller size “has a waist”, the bigger one doesn’t…), so there’s no adjusting needed. ;)
