I love surprise packages – especially when there’s something so beautiful inside! :)

Scarlett & Jo, one of my favorite plus-size brands, finally has its own online shop and I’m proud to present one of their gorgeous dresses today. :)

It’s also one of my Christmas outfit ideas – I guess velvet is one of the most Christmassy fabrics ever and red (in this case, it’s a magenta red which sometimes looks more pink or more purple, depending on the light) is also a great color for that special time of the year. :)

This dress is incredibly perfect – the color, the cut (love the fishtail hem!), the sweetheart neckline, the quality,… everything! It’s very formfitting, so I’d recommend wearing some Spanx underneath for a smooth silhouette, but the small ruffles in front conceal your little Christmas roast belly, so no worries. ;)

For my personal touch, I wore it with an old belt from Zara, matching my headband. I felt like a princess during our shoot and to be honest: it’s just that little bit of sparkling that makes the outfit complete. Even though the dress is already beautiful without any extras. ;)

Spending Christmas at home with your family and friends? Got invited to the Christmas party at work? Planning a huge New Year’s Eve party? And don’t know what to wear? I spent some time looking for potential outfit candidates and created three little lookbooks for you to get inspired – maybe your XMAS and NYE look is just around the corner the next click! ;) And don’t forget: it’s Cyber Monday today and you can still save a lot of money – have a look at my updated list with many codes → here! ;)

Oh, and #throwback: long hair → last Christmas, short brown hair at the → beginning of this year and now → rocking the gray-platinum-blonde pixie. What’s your favorite? Mine is definitely the current haircut plus the color. I don’t even want to think about changing something! :)

By the way: the outfit above will be online soon! ;)
