Dress: Scarlett & Jo
It was really hard to find a post title for today’s look. I chose “Broadcast” because I wore this outfit on Monday when I was live on the radio. I did a short interview for WDR Funkhaus Europa and had my own little studio at NDR Hamburg, which was a funny experience because the radio interviews I did before were all on the phone and now I was invited to the studio but it was only for me – yet we were connected through the stations. Unfortunately, it seems there is no podcast, but let me tell you: it’s nothing new. I answered a few questions about me and the blog, plus size in Germany and what’s my wish for the future of all plus-size bloggers here. I still hope the answers were interesting for everyone who didn’t know me and the blog (and our plus-size blogosphere) yet, and if you came here because of the show – welcome! :)
About my look: this dress is officially a → “Curvy Tall” dress from Scarlett & Jo, but since I love midi dresses or even calf-length dresses, I was like “who cares?” and as you can see, the choice wasn’t bad. Usually, when I buy longer dresses, they’re instantly maxi dresses (but with a weird length), and even though this isn’t a problem for me, I sometimes wish I were a bit taller so dresses would have their actual lengths and would look like they’re supposed to. But since I’m so short, this is something I had to learn and I also learned how to cheat – of course, every dress will be a bit longer, but sometimes this can be very cool and look extremely great! Just like this one! Normally, I’d say that especially midi (and longer) dresses work perfectly with high heels, but since I’m a comfy person and like to wear flats, I went for my favorite sandals (gosh, I really hope they’ll never break!) and as you can see – it looks amazing. Even though I’m short. And even if some may think that there’s this rule that short people should try to look as tall as possible by avoiding certain dress and skirt lengths and wearing heels as often as possible, I say: fuck it. You don’t have to please anyone else but yourself. And if you want to wear midis with flats – do it! Your life, your body, your clothes, your rules. Ha!
