Sure, this outfit isn’t very summery (especially not on these hot days), but it’s definitely worth posting already – so you can still get it with 25% off and get ready for fall. ;) But of course, this is a super classic look, “all black” just how I love it. I even went so far and created a matching make-up by doing smoky eyes and wearing an almost black lipstick. The → “Tal” dress is truly a special piece with a very different cut. I first thought about wearing it with a belt, simply because I like to show my waist, but honestly: this ruins the dress. So if you’re thinking about buying it (and you should!), don’t even think about adding a belt because this dress needs to be worn just like this! That’s what the dress is about and how it looks best. :)

Since my head always looks a bit too small when I wear loose clothes, I went for a hat. This is something I actually have to do so I don’t look distorted. ;) But as I love hats, this isn’t a problem for me – and I think that it rounds off the look perfectly. Also, I went for boots because I felt that delicate sandals or elegant heels just wouldn’t work with the dress. It needs something more rough and bold and so I chose these classic black boots. Do I have to say more? Just in case (and cause I forgot it last time): I’m wearing a size 2 here and the → “Kiss” dress was a size 3 (probably, a 2 would have been better for my small bust, but the 3 was the best choice for my large hips). The fabrics aren’t stretchy, so if you want them to fit, use the measurement chart on the page and check which size will be best for you. ;) And now we’ll let the photos speak for themselves – and don’t forget to watch the video! ;)

This black and white dress instantly caught my eye when I saw it. I was just browsing through the online store, checking the novelties – another love-at-first-sight piece and there it was, already on its way to me. :)

I truly love the wonderful knit material, it’s pretty elastic and also a bit heavy, it falls beautifully and we don’t have to talk about the gorgeous black and white pattern. It’s just a tiny little bit too short for my own taste but well, you only live once, right? ;)

Since I love black and white total looks, I went for an elegant and ladylike style (of course with my “Lady Dior”, the perfect bag for this look!). Red lips and voilà, good to go on a chic stroll through the streets of Paris. Or on a bridge in Hamburg, haha! :)

Finally: here’s the first outfit with the dress of my dreams. It was kind of a coincidence that I saw it because I was checking the mytheresa SALE but ended up having a look at the new collection. And there it was: THE dress. Honestly, if I weren’t married already, this would be the dress I’d wear. There’s no need for white on a wedding day when you can wear this. :) I probably wouldn’t even need a groom because I’d marry the dress (haha, just kidding – or not?). :) I’m so in love and extremely happy that I finally got the chance to buy a Dolce & Gabbana dress because I seriously never thought I’d ever fit into anything from the designer duo. I guess this dress is proof that even if you’re plus size, you should always give the pieces you’ve fallen in love with a chance, try them on and see if they fit. Because this is an Italian size 50, which makes it a EU size 46, but it’s actually a 44 and, lucky me, I wear a size 44. So if I hadn’t even given the dress a chance, I wouldn’t be the happiest girl in the world now (even though my bank account cried a lot after my visit to their boutique). This dress is the most precious piece I own and I’ll wear it until it falls apart (please never!). We already shot the second look I had in mind when I saw it and a third one is already planned. So this is part one of my poppies and daisies romance. ♥

You know I’m always open for new things – this time, it’s a VERY different look (and to be honest, just an editorial for the blog – I went outside like this but didn’t wear it for shopping or something, but sometimes I like to shoot something only for the blog, so please don’t mind if there’s something that’s probably not too “everyday” every now an then!). Since the bomber jacket was already something new for me and it was not that easy to come up with ideas on how to wear it (gosh, I still wish it were a little bit shorter because I really love it!), I just did it and went for something that’s completely different from every other look here on the blog. I don’t even know how to describe it properly, I think it’s kind of ghetto and hip hop and also a bit 90s, so I don’t even want to write too much but let you guys see a very different side of me – definitely unusual, but I actually like it. :)

Oh, and: no Photoshop, as ALWAYS – that’s why you can see a bit of my stretch marks and that’s absolutely okay. I think it’s fine to wear cropped clothes whenever you feel like it, no matter what’s not “perfect” about your body. :)
