Well, I really hope that you love this dress as much as I do – because it’s really something different and not my usual style. And that’s just why I love it so much! Isn’t it just amazing? The official name for this print is “Doxtooth” and yes, this makes me happy. The name and the print. I’m definitely a cat lady thanks to my little boy, but I’ve also got a passion for dogs, and since my dad once had a dachshund, I guess this just made me choose this print. :) So first, here’s a huge thanks to Airdrie – Joolz Plus – for sending me this lovely dress!

Second, I have to tell you that this is a perfectly cut piece and the fabric (yes, it’s polyester and I know many hate it – but polyester isn’t always the same, and not necessarily plastic!) is super lightweight and feels great on my skin. It’s a great summer dress and even though it’s a happy and funny dress, I wanted to give it that special sophisticated look. So I went for a matching belt in black and white, a classic hat and black heels – and red sunglasses. I even tried to recreate the color of the sunnies for my lipstick, but it came out a bit more orange – which I actually like, it’s not too forced, you know? ;)

One of my classics here on the blog is “all black”. I love completely black outfits, they’re simply amazing. But I truly love colors too and that’s why today I’ll give you a color bomb in “all purple” (yes, I know, the shades of purple aren’t completely identical, but I think that that’s exactly what makes the whole look interesting!).

This is yet another → dress from Scarlett & Jo that’s just perfect for showing your curves and making them look even curvier! ;) And it has the most beautiful cleavage ever! Especially if you have a bit more bust than me – there was some space left to be filled, but even a push-up was no help for me, so… Anyways, it fits true to size and I’m wearing my usual UK 16 (let’s just say that’s my S&J size, there are only a few dresses for which I need to go up a size).

Today’s post title is about the weather when we shot this look – it looked super lovely when we arrived at the location, the sun was shining and it was warm and just a bit windy (like every day in Hamburg), but suddenly the sky turned very, very dark – you can see it in the video! – and we had to hurry. The moment we finished, it started to rain cats and dogs – talk about timing, huh? ;)

Isn’t it funny that just a few days ago, a friend asked me if it’s possible to wear flat sandals with maxi skirts? I think this is the perfect answer! ;) Of course you can wear flats when you wear maxi pieces. It’s certainly true that they won’t make you look taller, but if you’re as short as I am, it doesn’t even matter. Actually, it never matters, as long as you feel good in what you’re wearing – right? And let’s be honest: flats are always more comfy, so they’re always a good choice. ;)

I actually wanted to name this post “Os quindins de yayá” because the whole look reminds me of one of my favorite childhood movies, “The Three Caballeros”, with Donald Duck, José Carioca and Panchito – there’s a scene where they travel to Bahia and meet Aurora Miranda, Carmen Miranda’s younger sister, and → she sings this song called “Os quindins de yayá” wearing a typical look from Bahia. I think my look is a modern and more minimalistic version of it and that’s where the actual idea for today’s post title came from. But I went for “Level 5” cause that’s where we shot the photos and it’s a bit easier and doesn’t need any explanation. ;)

So, I’m back with another head wrap and a Carmen (Miranda, haha!) top, which I wore with a black maxi skirt for a casual and relaxed summer look. And since I’m currently so in love with → Urban Decay’s “XX Vice LTD Reloaded” palette, I did a very special colorful make-up that’s supposed to match the silk scarf turban. Even though I love natural make-ups (well, only talking about the eyes), I’m having fun doing color bombs at the moment – the palette made me do it and I’m actually very happy about this! Somehow I’m going back to the (blog’s) roots, when everything was more experimental and colorful – even though I’m happy that my fashion style changed a lot. ;)
