It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I’ve got the perfect dress for those of you who plan to go out for a luxurious romantic dinner for two. :) And by “I’ve got one”, I literally mean that I’ve got one for you, because one of you can win this dress in her size, just in time for Valentine’s Day on Sunday. :)

Like every dress from Scarlett & Jo, this is another perfect curve-hugging dress. Made of soft lace that falls beautifully around the legs (love the fishtail!), it makes your figure look stunning (I’m sure you can all see what I mean!). This time, I went for a UK size 18, just because I wanted it not to be too tight around my hips, and it was a good choice. So if you have wide hips like me, you should consider buying it a size up – or if you’re the happy winner, just tell me the size you need. ;)

Here’s how to win:

1 • like → Scarlett & Jo on Facebook – you can also like my Facebook page → here, but that’s optional. ;)
and
2 • leave a comment here under this blog post (if you don’t comment via Facebook, please make sure to leave your e-mail address, which won’t be visible to everyone, just me – so I can contact you afterwards) telling me what you’d love to do on Valentine’s Day,
all that
3 • by tomorrow, Tuesday, February 9 (so the winner can receive the dress by Saturday!)

The winner is Vanessa Myslinski – congrats!

It’s time for a new culotte on the blog – the denim version! At the Zizzi blogger event in Berlin, we were allowed to pick a few favorites from current and (near future) coming collections – these pants caught my attention instantly and I was lucky to get the only ones in my size. I also brought another pair of jeans home with me because I really love Zizzi’s cut of jeans, they fit me best and are absolutely great.

Now this is my first styling with this special culotte and it’s also one of my favorite outfits ever because I just fell in love with the whole combination of blue, white and red with golden details (French somehow, right?). Hat, bag and boots in black round it off and the make-up is mostly neutral (I really love this lipstick, which I topped with a bit of lip gloss).

Well, that’s what I want to see when I visit a fair for plus-size fashion. I want to see modern stuff, stylish clothes. Things that skinny people would also wear. Clothes for everyone, not for the fat outsider who wants to be hidden in a ochre-colored sack with no real shape. I want something that makes my fashionista heart beat faster, something that makes me want to get creative and play around with it. Something that screams FASHION! and WEAR ME!, something that makes me look amazing and want to step outside and say: “Look at me! I’m fat AND fashionable, fat AND stylish, fat AND beautiful!” – and I’m absolutely allowed to say and feel this, just like everyone else.

So yes, this is a love declaration to Zizzi – because they don’t mean to hide fat people but to make them feel like a part of everything, of fashion and looking great. Thank you for that!

I already wrote about → my visit to the Curvy® plus-size fair, today I’ve got my outfit for you. I went for a special but casual look – instead of wearing black (which is the most-seen color at such events), I wanted to show some color (remember my resolutions for 2016? Take this as an example! ;)), that’s why I chose my favorite skirt ever, the “Eyoma” skirt from Dearcurves – and it was a major success at the fair, everyone loved it! If you want to get your own skirt, you can order it → here and by using the discount code queen20, you’ll get 20% off! ;)

When I last wore the skirt, I went for the actual lookbook look and paired it with the “Eyoma” body with a traditional Ankara print, so this time I dug up a veeeery old piece out of my closet. The body is from the 2009 “Divided Exclusive” collection (and it’s size EU 40, still fits without any problems!), so you see: sometimes keeping things and wearing them again is worth it – I think that’s a great match!

For the casual look, I had to choose flats. Since it doesn’t matter which kind of flat shoes you wear for about 6 hours of standing and walking around (your feet will always hurt afterwards, as did mine), I did something that’s quite unusual for me: I wore sneakers. But of course not without being fabulous and picking my sequined Chucks – had to be sparkling. :) I’m normally totally against that mixture, but somehow I really loved the combo of those glittering shoes with the rather elegant look. And it shows that you can wear this skirt like that – casually – too.

Let me just say: styling a long white trench coat was kind of a big challenge for me. Since I’m pretty short, it was really important how I’d combine it so it wouldn’t look like I’m wearing a huge bathing robe and I wouldn’t feel like a doctor (who’s ready to take a shower). ;)
I went for a classic black-and-white combo, with that little twist. I’m actually not talking about the (fake fur) hat (that looks like I’m wearing a wig, right?) – but about the dress and the boots: both have the same python pattern and while the dress is made of scuba material and matte, the patent leather boots are shiny. I think it’s quite interesting to mix it like that and create a sleek and minimalistic look that’s still very impressive (yeah, talking about the hat now). ;)

The trench has a great fit. I’m always a UK size 16 at → Scarlett & Jo and anything I put on fits perfectly – I’m not lying, at the shooting last weekend, I wore about 9 different pieces and they were all on point. So once you know your S&J size, you can definitely stick to it, whatever you want to buy. ;)
