This is a look that I completely planned in my head and really hoped that it’d turn out as amazing as I saw it when putting the pieces together in my mind – and I’d say: yes, it did!

It’s probably one of those looks that you wouldn’t expect from me, but I like to surprise as much as I like to do all those obvious dress looks – not only you but also myself. And I must say that this surprise turned out to be a golden ticket for me: I love this look so much, especially because of those pants! They’re fake leather but so incredibly soft and great to wear – if you’re looking for some perfect quality fake leather pants, you HAVE TO try these. I know they’re pretty expensive, but they’re worth every cent (and also available in black)!

I’m a big fan of how these fall colors work together – we have the brown pants, a greyish white lace blouse, a dark purple and brown jacket and the shoes in a very dark brown shade – and all those colors look absolutely great in combination! I liked the combo so much, I even had to recreate it for my make-up. ;) Love the dramatic look with the smoky eyes and matte lips (for which I mixed three different liquid lipsticks for the perfect shade and some ombré). :)

Dress: Scarlett & Jo
Pumps: Valentino “Rockstud”
Bag: Dior “Lady Dior”
Earrings: Chanel
Alternatives: Scarlett & Jo floral dress,
Scarlett & Jo polka dot dress, Lost Ink pumps,
ASOS pumps

Another super classic black & white look for which I went very matchy-matchy (shoooooeeees!). ;)

I need to be honest with you and tell you that unfortunately, there’s no way to get this dress at the moment. It’s from Scarlett & Jo and was only available at SimplyBe UK (so not even shipping to Germany) and is currently sold out, but I really hope that S&J will be restocking and sell it in their own shop so you can all get this amazing dress! Until then, there are two dresses of the same cut & style but with different prints: find → option n° 1 here and → option n° 2 here.
At first, I thought that the belt (it’s part of the dress but detachable) would be a bit too much, but when you’re all ready with hair and make-up done, wearing nice shoes and accessories, the belt is definitely a great addition, it brings in a bit more contrast – and that’s good. ;)

I love these very classic dresses which you can definitely style in a modern way but which also work if you stay true to their style. For this look I decided to go on with the ladylike look, so I picked my black and white “Rockstuds”, my “Lady Dior” and classic Chanel earrings, very luxurious accessories for a very sophisticated look.

At the moment, you’d definitely need to wear a warm coat, at least when you go outside. ;) I’d recommend a classic black one, I’d take → this one, it’s my favorite of all times. ;)

After my → first #plussizepower post with Jules, today I’ve got something very special for you with my dear friend → Claus. We’ve been wanting to shoot together since we first met → at the Plus Size Fashion Days last year. I’m so proud that he keeps saying that I inspired him to start his own blog, together with some of my fellow blogger girls who also were on the catwalk at the PSFD, and I’m even prouder to see how successful he already is – not only as a blogger but also as a male plus-size model, something we keep forgetting when talking about plus-size acceptance. It’s not only about women but also about men. Fat people struggle every day, no matter what gender. That’s why it is so important to also have male plus bloggers and models to represent “us” – and that’s why I’m so happy to do this outfit post together with Claus!

These were our looks at this year’s Plus Size Fashion Days for Happy Size. They had already chosen me to walk for them last year, and this year I was on the catwalk for them twice – once in this amazing street style look, and right afterwards just in black underwear for their “BodyLove” project with Silvana Denker. But I’ll tell you more about it all soon (only waiting for the video, which should go online these days, I think).

I’d like to tell you how amazing it is that Claus chose this outfit for me and how much I like it. He knows me pretty well and even though this cool style wouldn’t be something I’d pick myself, I felt great in this outfit – and still like myself. Maybe also because I added my own touch with the hat. ;) But all in all, this look is so good! And comfy. A feel-good look! The dress (size 44) – I love it! – and jacket (size 44) fit true to size, the clutch is super versatile (you can wear it as a cross body and also unfolded) and even the necklace (you know me, I don’t wear them usually) is a nice accessory which rounds up the whole look. The boots and the hat are my own and definitely two classics everybody should have because they go well with so many outfits! ;)

You can read everything about → Claus’ look on his blog – I’m sure it’s super inspirational for all male body types, a stylish and comfy everyday look which I really like! And don’t we just look great together? ;)

I finally found a piece with bell sleeves that I really like: this heavy knit dress is absolutely amazing! It’s not only the sleeves – I’m in love with the fabric, the cut, the back, the color. Definitely an awesome piece for fall and something to reveal a darker side of me. ;) It’s not that dark, but I think that the whole look is something different. I really love it!

First, I wanted to add a belt, but then I had this idea: why not just draw some attention to the middle with a brooch, why not “misuse” it and wear a brooch instead of a belt? And I must say that I’m absolutely amazed by my idea and how cool it looks. I mean, it’s the same as wearing a statement belt, as wearing a belt from Chanel, but with the funny fact that it’s just the buckle. ;)
I’m not 100% happy with the boots, though. It was really hard to find shoes to wear with this dress and I really don’t know why! Maybe you’ve got an idea which shoes could be a better match (I was thinking about → these, but they didn’t look good)?
