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

My second outfit shoot with Katharina brings you this unusual combination! :) And even though it’s something new for me, I enjoy wearing it so much! I’ve worn it a lot because of my closet problem, sometimes exchanged the black shirt with a white t-shirt for an even more casual style, but this is my favorite combo – because I love the mix of super sexy with that cleavage and the casual look with jeans and sneakers. The kimono gives it that last fashionable touch and makes the whole outfit very special and I’m so glad I bought it cause it’s exactly the showstopper I needed in my life. :) Plus: who says, short people can’t wear long jackets? It had to be shortened, though. Haha!

You may have noticed that Katharina’s photos look a little bit different. This is because she’s a professional photographer and uses Photoshop (which I don’t even own and therefore never use!). I asked her to go slow with the retouching but, of course, I didn’t want her to lose her own style of working on the pictures. So this is just a little reminder that you might notice a difference. ;)

Today’s outfit has a funny story behind the look – cause these aren’t my own clothes! :)

I’ve been following Katharina for a long time and always swooning over her photos, she’s an amazing photographer from Koblenz and when I was in Düsseldorf a few weeks ago, we managed to do a super quick shoot together before I had to leave for the airport. I’m incredibly happy that we finally met and had the chance to take some pictures!

Since my wardrobe is still very limited, she brought some of her own clothes so we could do one very different look. I mean: especially that jacket is something I’d never buy on my own cause I’d believe that it’s not my style but I actually love it! Especially in combination with that lovely dress!

You see: sometimes, it’s cool to let someone else dress you up (or at least get some different ideas from a friend or so) and give new things a chance. ;)

This fall, I’m starting a new collaboration with C&A – I can’t wait to show you the whole exciting project which was shot and filmed in Düsseldorf at the end of August. It’s super cool and I’m incredibly proud to be a part of it! I’ll tell you more about it all in an extra blog post as soon as I receive the pictures and videos! :)

I’ll also be showing you a few looks from their plus-size collection through fall and winter and I hope you’re going to love it as much as I do. These looks will definitely be a little bit more casual than usual, since fall and winter are very cozy and comfy and I’m pretty sure you’ll like to see some everyday options, right?

Today, I’m starting with a casual chic style with lots of blue. It’s kind of unusual to see me wearing regular jeans since I usually go for skinny jeans but I like the loose style in combination with the long cardigan and the tunic, which I tucked into the pants cause it would’ve been to much of that “layering style” and therefore not very flattering – even though many people will tell fat women that this is the best way to “conceal” your body, but truth is: you’ll look just way bigger than you are if you just layer loose and mostly oversized shapes! Your body will get lost and hidden and you’ll just look like a sack of clothes. So here’s my tip: there’s nothing wrong with showing your waistline and this is easy to do when wearing pants under a cardi – just tuck your shirt into the pants. I know many are scared to show their belly outline but there’s no need to hide it. It’s just a belly! :)
