[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Neues Level erreicht - wir matchen jetzt das Outfit zum Drink! 💚 Gestern hatte der #GinBasilSmash seinen 11. Geburtstag und ich hab‘ zusammen mit @i.am.taesh die Gelegenheit genutzt, mein erstes Jahr zurück in Hamburg zu feiern! 🎉 Ich sitze tatsächlich mal wieder an einem Blogpost zu der ganzen Sache und hoffe, ich krieg‘ den diese Woche noch fertig, war nämlich ein spannendes Jahr, mit vielen aufregenden Erlebnissen, ein paar Höhen, einigen Tiefen, aber zum Schluss dann doch nochmal einem Comeback. Hoffe, dieser schriftliche Trailer hat euch neugierig gemacht und ihr schaut dann auch mal wieder auf dem Blog vorbei, wenn der Post online geht - ich geb Bescheid, versprochen! Bis dahin: Grün für den Drink, Grün für die Hoffnung, oder so ähnlich. Auf ein weiteres Jahr! 🎉 #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards

[Werbung wegen Verlinkung] Okay, Zufälle sind ja mit das Grandioseste, also kommt hier meine Story der Woche: Ich bin ja total im #StrangerThings3 Mood (keine Spoiler von mir, versprochen, aber die Staffel ist überragend!!!), daher der Look, irgendwie ein bisschen 80s. 🐥 Aber dann bringt hier die @boilermanbar allen Ernstes Slushies und lädt ein - und wie könnte man da Nein sagen? @fernet_hofi hat da was Feines nach Hamburg gebracht mit seinen Vermouth Slushies 🍋, I‘m intrigued! Zwar kein Cherry Slushy wie für Smirnoff, aber mindestens genauso lecker! 👌🏻 #plussize #plussizeoutfit #plussizeblogger #luziehtan #celebratemysize #honormycurves #effyourbodystandards #boilermanbar #drinks

I’m finally ready to show you all photos and the video of this year’s → Plus Size Fashion Days in Hamburg. It’s been an incredibly exciting time and I’m proud to say that this was my third time on the catwalk and I’ve been booked by so many brands – it was a pleasure and honor to walk for them and it’s so great to know that they trust me to represent them.

Above, you can see a picture from the rehearsal – this is my most casual self: black leggings, black t-shirt, sneakers and a cozy cardigan (it was pretty cold at the location during the training, fittings and rehearsals).

As every year, I feel like these are the most intense days of the year. I’m pretty sure, actual models don’t think so as this is their job – but for me as the tiny nugget I am, this is something so special and exciting and at the same time horribly exhausting because there’s so much to do around the final result, the fashion show. It’s very stressful, positively, though, but I’m pretty much completely useless after the event. Plus, this year, I got very sick afterwards. But it’s worth it. This is such an important event, with such a honorable message. An event of true diversity in terms of plus size, with people of different sizes, different heights, different skin tones, different stories, beginners and professionals, women and men. And this is exactly what the world needs. ♥

In the beginning of January, I went to a very special store opening – “Vollkommen.Braut.” is a curvy bridal concept store and as you can imagine, this means: plus-size pleasure all around. :)

I somehow made the mistake not to try on a wedding dress during the preparations for our wedding because I thought that since it was only a civil wedding, I didn’t need a “real” dress and would only be sad after trying a few on. Well, I was right – but I also missed the incredible feeling of looking like a princess and how amazing it is to wear a wedding dress. Even if it’s only for a few pictures during an event. I mean: how stunning must it be to try on dresses for your wedding and then finding “the one” (to be honest, I think I even found it that day, but that’s a different story, haha!)?

But let’s talk about the store: I decided to do a little post about it because I’m sure that there are a few brides-to-be out there searching for THE DRESS. :) The selection at “Vollkommen.Braut.” starts from EU size 44 and goes up to a 58+, featuring brands like Callista (I’d say that this is the brand you have to try!), Bridalstar, Romantica of Devon, Lohrengel and Ladybird. And of course, since this is a concept store, you won’t only find dresses but also accessories and shoes and loads of inspiration. The collaborating local stores and service providers are “Curvy Shapes” (lingerie), “Bunny & Scott” (cupcakes and cakepops), “urban spa” (beauty), “Blütezeit” (florist), “Marryhair” (hair stylist), “Carmen Boch” (goldsmith) and “Wortkunst mit Herz” (speeches and weddings).

The store isn’t too big but that’s just what makes it perfect. Making an appointment means that you’ll have the whole store just for yourself and your family and friends, so you can try on your favorite dresses with no stress, nobody watching and therefore be totally relaxed. The two owners, Regina and Nora, are absolute pros when it comes to bridal dresses and will assist you perfectly!

After the click you’ll find some impressions of the day, including a few cellphone snapshots of me wearing some amazing dresses! ;)

P.S.: If you book an appointment and mention that I’m the one who brought you there, you’ll receive a so-called “Welcome Pass”, which means you will be gifted a voucher for an accessory that matches your dress. ♥

From October 28 to 30, it was finally time for the Plus Size Fashion Days again. I’ve been super excited because this year, I was booked more often than last time, got the chance to present a piece designed by me and was part of the → “BODYLOVE” walk by Silvana Denker and Happy Size (which meant: getting almost naked again!).

Like last year, because of the catwalk training, fitting and rehearsals, unfortunately I had no time to visit the workshops and daytime events around the show, so I can’t tell you more about them, but I visited the opening party and on the last day, I was able to have a look at the marketplace. All in all, these were some super busy and positively stressful days, just like last year. The feelings are intense during the preparations, it’s a mixture of happiness (especially because of all those amazing people, the atmosphere is super friendly and helpful and I absolutely appreciate this! ♥) and nervousness, a bit of fear (“Will I trip on the catwalk?”) and loads of excitement. The adrenaline level seconds before the first walk is incredibly high and the feeling when you step out into the light, pose and see all the faces looking at you is amazing. Oh, the goosebumps! It’s simply great. And the best reward for everything you’ve done the days before the show.

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!
