It’s finally time for a new Anna Scholz for sheego lookbook on the blog again! As every season (find all previous posts → here), I’ve teamed up with sheego for a small lookbook with my three  favorite pieces of the collection (which is already available!).

My favorite number one must be the highlight dress of the latest collection – a gorgeous → wrap dress with a kaleidoscopic butterfly print. When I was at the “Panorama” fair with sheego in January, Anna Scholz herself wore the dress and it instantly became a must-have piece for me, so that’s my first choice to show you.

It is very easy to style this dress, since it doesn’t need too many accessories – it shines by itself. But I still wanted to give it all a special touch, that’s why I chose some red splashes of color to compliment the bold print. ;) I’m wearing a EU size 46 but I’m pretty sure a 44 would also work (could be a tiny bit too tight around my hips, that’s why I went for the 46). Depending on your body shape, it’s up to you to decide when you’re in between two sizes. Just have a look at your body and decide whether you need a tighter or looser fit.

My last look for my Anna Scholz for sheego lookbook is a very elegant and festive one – perfect for Christmas and New Year’s Eve and an opulent party!

I’ve decided to let → the dress speak for itself and not to bring in too many accessories, that’s why I’m only wearing a pair of statement earrings and black suede pumps. I’m not wearing a clutch for the photos, but I think that I’d wear my → chartreuse “Knot Clutch” from Bottega Veneta or even the → golden holographic one from Gucci. Since I don’t own a “neutral” black clutch, only the → Lips Clutch from Lulu Guinness (which is definitely not appropriate for this elegant look because it’s simply too fancy), I guess I’d choose something colorful. But that’s just an idea.

In my opinion, this is the most festive dress of the whole collection, and if you’re still searching for a look for the holidays, you should definitely consider trying this one. I took a size up, a EU 46 instead of my usual 44, because it’s a bit tight. But if you don’t have huge hips and a big butt like me, you can definitely stick to your normal size. ;) After our photo shoot, I noticed that I probably shouldn’t have worn black underwear – now you can see everything through the transparent lace part, but somehow I don’t think it looks so bad (and since I still don’t own a – gosh, it’s just not my year for it! – strapless bra, I just went for the usual stuff plus a shapewear body suit). It even looks interesting somehow. Well, at least I try to tell myself so. ;)

Instead of going for the obvious “red lips and black eye liner” look, I did something more simple yet effective – just a bit of gray and silver eye shadow, a black eye liner and one of my favorite brown-nude lipsticks. The earrings are enough of an eye-catcher around the face – that’s why you don’t have to do a dramatic make-up. ;)

For my second look for Anna Scholz for sheego, I teamed up with my blogger friend → Jules. Not only do we want to show you how one dress can look on different bodies (even though we’re not shaped that differently) and how both colors will look worn, but we also want to show you how amazing supporting each other can be. And I think that our result is something to be proud of! ;)

Blogging has become some kind of “lone battle”, we all do the same but do it on our own. I remember the good old times of blogging, when we were much more connected, not only behind the scenes but also visibly on our blogs (shame on me too, I know, I don’t have a blog roll anymore…). When tagging other bloggers in posts (for example when someone had already blogged about the same dress, product or event) was something completely natural. Nowadays, it has somehow become an “I don’t want to share my followers” problem, as if you’d lose your own followers when you send them over to someone else. This is sad and I’ve always put a link to other bloggers when I had a post in which you can see them – because it still is natural for me.

And there are so many positive things that happen when we support each other, when we stand up for each other. We’re not supposed to work against each other but lift each other up. Women in general are somehow pretty competitive when it comes to other women – I don’t even get where this came from, but we kind of live in a world where another woman quickly becomes a rival. When she’s prettier than you, when she’s more successful than you, when she earns more money than you, when she’s got more followers than you,… Sharing is caring, as well as supporting is caring. And if Jules and I can show you that blogging together can work out, maybe we’re an example for you that it all works. That together we can move something. We both stand for the same message: #bodypositivity and #plussizepower.

And together we want to empower you to show your inner goddess – in this dress, but also in any other situation. Being plus size is nothing to feel bad about and you can definitely show yourself. And this is another message we have for everyone out there: if you don’t like what you see, just suck it up. Because you won’t make someone else feel better by telling them not to wear this or that, just because you aren’t ready for it. Every day, we experience women (especially other fat women – and this is super sad!) telling other women that they can’t wear this because it is “unflattering”, or they keep spreading other “fat clichés” (e.g. “don’t wear stripes”), just because they have been taught all their lives that fat women can’t be stylish, can’t be gorgeous, can’t look amazing and actually believe that being fat is something you have to hide. Please stop thinking like this and please don’t drag other women down with you – that’s not supportive. Accept that other people might be ready to live and feel good, fat or not. And one day you’ll hopefully change your mind and understand that we all are trying to support you too, trying to show you that you don’t have to be oppressed by the society’s ideal. This is what we’re fighting for!

But let’s not forget the dress – this one is → a lovely velvet dress which is available in black and petrol blue. Velvet is a major thing right now and you can do nothing wrong with this dress, which combines that fabric with lace sleeves (and they’re also a bit velvety). I’m usually between a EU size 44 and 46 in the Anna Scholz for sheego dresses (the → blouse dress from my last lookbook post was a size 46), this time I’m wearing a 44 because it fits a bit more loosely in 46. That’s why I went for the smaller size. It’s also helpful to size down if you don’t have a big bust because it’s pretty loose in the front. But you can simply help yourself by pinning it from the inside with a safety pin or a few stitches – for me, it luckily worked without anything. Jules is wearing a size 46 and you can read more about it on her blog. :)

Today, I’m starting with another lookbook I created for Anna Scholz for sheego. The latest collection is already available and if you like what you see, you can get it at sheego. ;)

My first look is a very casual look, perfect for fall, easy to wear and very comfy. The → blouse dress is actually my favorite of the collection, maybe because it’s so simple yet super cool and awesome. The sleeves have side slits, so it isn’t that simple after all – plus this is kind of an Anna signature look as we’ve already seen side slits on a few of her pieces (for example on → this dress from last season).
I could also imagine wearing it with a knit cardi or a vest and overknee boots when it’s colder. This dress is definitely a basic and great investment for your capsule wardrobe. ;)

I decided to leave this look all black and just add a bit of dusky rose and berry – with the bag and my lipstick. Totally enough. ;)
