In cooperation with Happy Size.

I promised you that there’d be more pants coming after I wore them a lot at the → PSFD. The first look is with my new destroyed jeans from Happy Size. → Claus created a second look for me which I individualized a bit by adding my hat and a choker which gives it that special touch, kinda “Glam Rock”.

It is indeed something different for me, not only because of the pants but especially because of the (fake) leather jacket. I think I last wore a leather jacket in 2007. I never really liked them because I’m not really into that “rock style”, but sometimes it’s good to have someone who makes you try something different. It’s good to leave your comfort zone and you can always make a different styling your own by adding some characteristic details. For me, it’s definitely the hat, the extravagant choker and – of course – the bold lips. And guess what – I’ve already worn the jacket again! ;)

Dress: Scarlett & Jo
Pumps: Valentino “Rockstud”
Bag: Dior “Lady Dior”
Earrings: Chanel
Alternatives: Scarlett & Jo floral dress,
Scarlett & Jo polka dot dress, Lost Ink pumps,
ASOS pumps

Another super classic black & white look for which I went very matchy-matchy (shoooooeeees!). ;)

I need to be honest with you and tell you that unfortunately, there’s no way to get this dress at the moment. It’s from Scarlett & Jo and was only available at SimplyBe UK (so not even shipping to Germany) and is currently sold out, but I really hope that S&J will be restocking and sell it in their own shop so you can all get this amazing dress! Until then, there are two dresses of the same cut & style but with different prints: find → option n° 1 here and → option n° 2 here.
At first, I thought that the belt (it’s part of the dress but detachable) would be a bit too much, but when you’re all ready with hair and make-up done, wearing nice shoes and accessories, the belt is definitely a great addition, it brings in a bit more contrast – and that’s good. ;)

I love these very classic dresses which you can definitely style in a modern way but which also work if you stay true to their style. For this look I decided to go on with the ladylike look, so I picked my black and white “Rockstuds”, my “Lady Dior” and classic Chanel earrings, very luxurious accessories for a very sophisticated look.

At the moment, you’d definitely need to wear a warm coat, at least when you go outside. ;) I’d recommend a classic black one, I’d take → this one, it’s my favorite of all times. ;)

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.

Dress: H&M Trend
Body Suit: H&M Trend
Belt: H&M Divided
Boots: Vince Camuto

ASOS dress, Lavish Alice dress,
ASOS body, Pieces belt,
Call it Spring boots, Carvela boots,
ALDO hat

I finally tried the layering trend, which makes it possible to wear summer dresses in fall/winter. ;) I’ve chosen to wear a body suit underneath my dress and went for another blue-and-black-and-white combo. It’s becoming one of my favorites, I guess… But I promise, you’ll get to see some cool new looks in the near future, including something totally not me but still great. Can’t wait to surprise you! But let’s not forget today’s look – I really love it and that’s why it’s up on the blog right now. I’ve actually been wanting to do this layering thing with → my yellow lace dress, but somehow, it looked pretty wrong on me, so I gave it another try with this one, which looks amazing without the body suit underneath but gets this special look and definitely is a little bit more fashion with it. ;)

Fall season is hat season for me and I love wearing one all the time, even though Hamburg is pretty tricky with its windy weather. You gotta make sure to wear the right size so it doesn’t fly away! ;) And, as you know me – there’s almost no look without a belt. But hey, at least I got new boots! Found them on sale and couldn’t resist bringing them home with me as they’re not only great but also super comfy. Have worn them a lot already!

I wish you all an amazing week! ♥
