I actually wanted to get → this dress in red, but now I’m more than happy that I got the gray version because it’s much more special. It’s a different color, at least for me, since I don’t have any pieces of this color in my closet.
Also, this dress is just perfect in terms of cut and length (I simply love midis) and the shoulder detail is the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen. The waist detail doesn’t really ask for a belt since it already works great to accentuate your waist and make the dress form-fitted, but I felt a belt would be a nice addition and would give the whole look my own touch. ;)

You all know me, I like to skip the obvious and that’s why I went for beige heels instead of black ones. I think black is too harsh and will somehow break the delicate look – maybe if you choose different accessories to accompany black shoes, they’ll work, but for my look, I just wanted something very feminine and soft.

Just like I explained in my last outfit post, fashion allows us to be who we want, and we can make a new decision every time we’re in front of our closet. ;) So last time, I wanted to wear a very tight and colorful dress – this time, I went for a very classic and sophisticated look, including a new piece in my jewelry collection: my first Chanel brooch! :) I actually wanted to shoot this outfit earlier, but when I finally had some luck at the store (every time I went there, they didn’t have any at all, but last time there were about 12 different brooches!), I instantly knew that this was exactly that last detail to complete this look. :)

People always say that fat girls can’t wear (horizontal) stripes – why’s that? I love stripes and I don’t care if they make me look fatter than I already am. That’s another thing about fashion that people need to start to understand: fashion is not about making you look thinner. Fashion is about the freedom I mentioned in my last post, the freedom to wear whatever I like, whatever pleases my own taste. And if someone else doesn’t like it – hell, I don’t give a single f***. And neither should you. ;)

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! ;)

It was really hard to find a post title for today’s look. I chose “Broadcast” because I wore this outfit on Monday when I was live on the radio. I did a short interview for WDR Funkhaus Europa and had my own little studio at NDR Hamburg, which was a funny experience because the radio interviews I did before were all on the phone and now I was invited to the studio but it was only for me – yet we were connected through the stations. Unfortunately, it seems there is no podcast, but let me tell you: it’s nothing new. I answered a few questions about me and the blog, plus size in Germany and what’s my wish for the future of all plus-size bloggers here. I still hope the answers were interesting for everyone who didn’t know me and the blog (and our plus-size blogosphere) yet, and if you came here because of the show – welcome! :)

About my look: this dress is officially a → “Curvy Tall” dress from Scarlett & Jo, but since I love midi dresses or even calf-length dresses, I was like “who cares?” and as you can see, the choice wasn’t bad. Usually, when I buy longer dresses, they’re instantly maxi dresses (but with a weird length), and even though this isn’t a problem for me, I sometimes wish I were a bit taller so dresses would have their actual lengths and would look like they’re supposed to. But since I’m so short, this is something I had to learn and I also learned how to cheat – of course, every dress will be a bit longer, but sometimes this can be very cool and look extremely great! Just like this one! Normally, I’d say that especially midi (and longer) dresses work perfectly with high heels, but since I’m a comfy person and like to wear flats, I went for my favorite sandals (gosh, I really hope they’ll never break!) and as you can see – it looks amazing. Even though I’m short. And even if some may think that there’s this rule that short people should try to look as tall as possible by avoiding certain dress and skirt lengths and wearing heels as often as possible, I say: fuck it. You don’t have to please anyone else but yourself. And if you want to wear midis with flats – do it! Your life, your body, your clothes, your rules. Ha!
