Hands up, who remembers this background? Those of you who already follow me and the blog for more than 3 years, will have a major flashback! ;) I have to be honest: I really miss the minimalistic photo locations in Hamburg but it’s kind of funny to be back with my retro style for the outfit photos. I guess as long as I’m here, this will be a recurring background, but I’m trying my best to still offer you some different looks. ;)

This is my second style with and for C&A for fall. It was actually supposed to go online in September but because of the Plus Size Fashion Days (where I also walked for C&A in a lovely outfit!) and my sick time in bed, I just managed to shoot this look right now.

I couldn’t find the sweater online, it may be sold out, but you should look for it in your nearest store if you love it as much as I do. I hope you can find it there!

This is a super easy and cozy look for fall. I came to appreciate these kinds of outfits during my first time without an actual closet. Of course, I’m still that extravagant person you know but my priorities changed a bit and I learned that it’s absolutely fine to wear something basic – you can always make it your own with the right accessories or a special make-up. And you don’t need a certain outfit to be happy. It’s about feeling good and yes, this comes also from clothes when you feel cozy and comfy, but it’s also about where you wear it and with whom. ;) #friendsandfamily

Sweater: H&M Trend
Jeans: sheego
Mules: H&M
Bag: Brasil
Earrings: Chanel
Bracelet: Hermès
Alternatives: Pull&Bear sweater,
ASOS Curve jeans, ASOS sandals,
New Look sandals, Vagabond sandals,
Pimkie clutch

Let’s stick to the pants and show you a new denim style! :) After being more than happy with sheego’s biker look jeans, they sent me their very basic skinny jeans in denim blue and also in a very light blue (definitely a challenge since I’ve never had such a color in my closet!). These pants are just perfect and super stretchy, probably the comfiest jeans I’ve ever had (just like the biker jeans) – and the length is absolutely fine since this is a petite length. ;)

I found this ruffled sweater and the mules during my latest H&M online stroll – sad to say that more than 3/4 had to go back because their clothes are really poorly cut, and even though I mostly wear a size 44 (except for pants, I’m more of a 48/50 due to my huge hips and butt), there were a few pieces which definitely were more of a 40. But I found a handful of nice clothes which you’ll see in some of my next posts. ;)

Dress: Marina Rinaldi
Jumpsuit: H&M Trend
Flatforms: Superga “Cotropew”
Sunglasses: Ray Ban “Round”
Earrings: Chanel
Choker: Jennifer Fisher
Bracelet: Hermès
Alternatives: ASOS jumpsuit,
Superga sneakers

And yet another piece I’ve styled differently – you know the stripy piece as a dress and some loved it, others hated it (especially on social media), but I must say: I absolutely adore it. And as you can see, you can also wear it as a kind of blouse jacket.

I wanted to throw in a casual look again – for that, I went for my super basic black jumpsuit (which is dead now cause it’s pretty ripped between my legs, but you can’t see it because I’m wearing black Spanx underneath – but I’ll need a new one now…) and the Superga flatforms I got last year. This look is easily styled and just as easy and comfy to wear. Since the dress is made of silk, it’s a perfect piece for summer, despite the long sleeves, because the fabric is so wonderfully lightweight. I truly love silk, even though it crumples pretty bad.

I finally officially present: my skirt! :) Well, you’ve already seen it, but today I want to show you my very own pictures of and for the first piece I’ve ever designed. ♥ It was such a special feeling to create something and even though there were a few guidelines regarding the fabrics, this is something that comes right out of my mind.

From tomorrow, you’ll be able to buy it online at → mable. I’ll update the link as soon as the collection is available! So don’t forget to drop by again! ;)
Update: GET THE SKIRT NOW HERE!

Of course, my first piece of clothing had to be a skirt, a flared one. And if I wasn’t that small, this would actually be a calf-length skirt. ;) But to be honest, I like this length on me! Taller women will experience the planned length, though. ;)

I wanted to use almost all of the fabrics of the collection, that’s why the skirt consists of a very special mix of emerald velvet, red patent leather and that beautiful transparent branches fabric. I like the extravagant mix and as you know me: it can never be special enough. :) The official “Witchcraft” look with the cut-out shirt (also from mable) and a large-brimmed hat is definitely a statement and not for every day (even though removing the hat already makes it less “witchy”), but I promise that you can easily wear this skirt for a night out and even “downdress” it a little. ;) There will be another look with it on the blog as soon as possible!

I also want to thank Katja again for trusting in me and making this first collaboration happen. I want to translate what I already answered to the question why I’ve done this with mable:

“Definitely because young designers are the future, not only in the “normal” fashion world but also and especially in the plus-size fashion world. We need fresh ideas and designers who dare to turn them into reality. From the beginning, mable has always been a brand that, for me, stands for pure creativity and that actually tries out new things. Also, it’s surely great to finally launch something that I can call my own. I’m more than excited to see the response to it, which at least was completely positive at the → Plus Size Fashion Days 2016 – the cheering when I presented my skirt on the runway is something I’ll never forget!”

I hope you enjoy today’s post with more pictures than usual and a video that’s a little longer – guess this is the best occasion for some overload of everything. ;)
