I promised you more pants on the blog – here we are again with some new jeans! Even though you already know these ones in gray from → this post. I love these jeans so much and I’m happy that I received the blue version too (this time normal length because the petite length wasn’t available and EU size 46 because it’s super elastic and my gray one is already pretty loose!) so I can wear jeans more often. ;)

Good news for one lucky girl: I’m giving away a denim package with sheego, including three pairs of jeans of the winner’s choice!

All you have to do to enter the giveaway is answer the following question in the comments by February 28 (terms and conditions at the end of this blog post):

“How do you like to wear your jeans?”

Here’s my answer: as you’ve probably noticed, jeans are still not that typical for me, even though I do wear them more often for running errands – but not as an actual outfit. Anyways, I prefer the casual version or some kind of mix like this one here. And shhh – the next outfit on the blog will also be a jeans look, even more casual than this one. ;) And with my new hair cut!

The winner is Viola Zucker – congrats!

So here we are again – the last look of 2016! Of course, the outfit for New Year’s Eve has to be a super sparkling one – so it’s either my → glitter all over look or this one, which is kind of the same because the dress is made of the same fabric as the shirt, but of course it’s totally different. ;)

For my New Year’s Eve look I’m wearing a → wonderful dress from Scarlett & Jo and I love it so much because of the colors: navy blue and rosé gold glitter! What a great combo! It’s just not that easy to see in the pictures (especially because the light outside has been horribly bad for taking pictures…). If you’re not that much of an experimental girl, you can also go for the classic options black & silver (like my shirt) or “Black Sky” (black with blue glitter). Every color is amazing! And it’s on sale! ;) I’m wearing my usual UK size 16.

I actually wanted to go for beige heels but decided that black would be a better idea so I could add a clutch. My accessory choice is pretty basic, but that’s why I went for matching rosé gold earrings and a dramatic make-up plus some kind of vintage hairdo (it’s not easy to style my hair at the moment since this is a bad interim hairstyle, but let’s just wait and see what happens next…).

Well, this is my last post for 2016 and I wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR! See you in 2017 in a few days! :)

Christmas is coming! Time for a shiny yet casual look which you can wear for almost every occasion! Less isn’t always more, that’s why I’ve decided to do a glitter all over look for today’s outfit. :)

When I first saw the skirt at the Plus Size Fashion Days, I knew I had to buy it. I’m usually not so much of a glitter girl, but sometimes (especially during the holidays) I somehow turn into someone who needs a bit of sparkling clothes. ;) Well, this time I totally exaggerated – but I love it. :)

I’m so happy to see that → Scarlett & Jo is doing some tops at the moment. They’ve added this → gorgeous lurex tunic to their collection, together with a few simpler tops but also this → utterly beautiful kimono (NEEEEED!). I’ve already received many compliments for this sparkling top and I can definitely recommend it to you, it’s simply perfect – and also looks great with jeans! ;) I’m wearing a UK size 14 (EU size 42), which means a size smaller than usual because it’s just a top, and it fits just right!

Of course I had to do a matching make-up and kind of felt old-school because years ago I was only doing colorful make-ups and now I prefer natural looks, even though I love colors on my eyes. I truly adore these pink and purple shades and they compliment the outfit as best as possible. I even added some loose silver glitter to my lids because here, too, it just couldn’t be enough glitter… ;)

For that special casual touch (and because it was horribly cold and windy when we shot these pictures, even though the sun almost blinded me!), I wore a super chunky knit cardi (one of my best buys ever some years ago).

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? ;)
