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. :)

I found these amazing Céline boots at TK Maxx for only € 191 – they originally cost around € 1200! Isn’t this crazy? I still can’t understand why they landed at TK Maxx or why they were that much cheaper, but since I actually fell in love with the design before I saw the brand (and was extremely surprised when I saw that they’re Céline!), I just smiled and walked straight to the cashier.
These are the softest leather boots ever and I love the bordeaux color, the heel design and – even though I already got a → pair of boots with the same detail – the zipper in front.

I’ve never really shown this blazer on the blog. I still remember the day when I wanted to buy it: I spent almost an hour thinking if I should buy it or not and finally left the store without it – just to send my husband to the store the next day because I couldn’t live without it. And still it’s one of the pieces I almost never wear because I don’t really like blazers on me. For today’s look it was just perfect, even though it doesn’t have the same color as the shoes, but it’s from the same color family (and the difference is only that big in the pictures).
Styling culottes has become one of my favorite occupations because they’re really not that easy to style and look great with when you’re fat. So that’s why I love trying different things with them and showing you my ideas and maybe inspire you to do the same and be creative with your clothes. Because there are no limits, only possibilities!

One of the special details of the look can’t be seen in the pictures (don’t know why the camera hid it): the shirt I’m wearing is semi-transparent and you can see my bra, that’s why I chose a very special one. Maybe you can see it better on your screen, maybe not, but I really liked the idea. Too bad that sometimes reality is a bit different from the photos (like my height, I really don’t know why I always look so tall…).
