I welcome spring with a bright red dress – even though the weather outside isn’t that lovely while it was super warm and nice in February when we shot these pictures (actually planned for Valentine’s Day, but due to being at home with my family, I just had no time to post it), today’s a good day to show you this gorgeous dress. :)

It’s currently almost sold out where I originally bought it because it was already on sale in February, but it keeps coming back in a few sizes. Don’t worry, though, this dress is still available in lots of different colors and styles, look:


Good to know
: when I ordered → this Chi Chi dress, I felt like the sizing was not correctly explained at navabi because a UK size 18 is not a EU size 44 but a size 46 – that’s why it was way too big for me (I had ordered a size 46 and ended up with a 48 because of Chi Chi’s weird sizing). Please have that in mind when ordering at navabi. Otherwise, my tip is to stick to the original sizing and always choose your actual UK size (mine is 16, which is a German 44). Plus: I had the feeling that the regular Chi Chi dresses tend to fit small to size while the Chi Chi Curve dresses are actually a bit larger, even though when wearing this red dress (and I chose a UK size 18, means a EU size 46!), I felt like it was way too tight around my bust and the arm holes were too small. That’s why the dress is now a skirt, thanks to my mom. ;) I guess my tips won’t help that much because you’ll definitely have to try the dresses on in order to find your right size. But it may help a little with choosing before ordering. ;)

It’s not easy to write these words, but: I’m back, for quite some time already. And it’s not easy to write this because I had such a good time in Brazil, with my family. I’m back in Hamburg with lots of memories, pictures and (of course, I’m still a girl, right?) souvenirs. Not to mention my little food baby thanks to delicious fruits, meat and coconut water for days (months, years, forever!). As you know, this time I took my husband with me – for his first time in Rio de Janeiro and to finally meet my Brazilian family (and I’ve got a huge one!). I guess you could say that he’s now in love with another beautiful girl, the “Cidade Maravilhosa”, hometown of my mother and – even if I never lived there – city of my heart.
For my little travel story, I captured Rio’s beauty with the phone (switching between iPhone 4S, 5S and 6). First of all because I was pretty afraid of walking around the city with my expensive camera (thanks to the ever-increasing crime rate and widespread thievery), but also because it’s easy luggage. ;) So these are all Instagram snapshots and you can follow all pictures (who knows, maybe there will be more) I took in Brazil with the hashtag → #lugoesbrasil2015 (should have been #lugoesrio2015, but I spent one day in São Paulo for work and used the same hashtag last time – only with 2012 – so I just used it again). Anyway, I really hope that one day I will be able to see even more of Brazil, more cities, more beautiful scenery, more people. I don’t know when will be the next time, but I really hope that it won’t take too long. :)

Jumpsuit: H&M+
Playsuit: Agent Provocateur “Warner”

Hat: H&M Divided
Earrings: & Other Stories
Bracelets: Gilson Martins, Fendi
Alternatives: Daisy Street jumpsuit,
Vila jumpsuit, Ultimo harness,

Bagatt mules, ASOS hat,

I really enjoy mixing different styles – especially when I can bring in some sexy lingerie like this playsuit from Agent Provocateur. Normally, that’s definitely a piece for the bedroom, but I think it’s way too cool to only be left at home, hidden in a pink box most of the time. So I thought about how to integrate it into an outfit without looking as naughty as AP’s actual plan. ;)

You already know how much I love a comfy jumpsuit – I bought this one from H&M+ a bit larger (2XL) for a very loose fit and it turned out perfectly for this little style mix. It’s been some time since I last wore a hat (and we are back…), so I had to take it out of my closet and put it right on my head. With some black and gold jewelry and mules, this was a great outfit for a relaxed summer afternoon – but still with this “sexy as hell” feeling thanks to the playsuit. ;)

Kleid: EPmodedesign // Gürtel/Seidenschal: DIY (schönes Modell → hier) // Sandalen: Arezzo (Brasil) (Alternativen → hier und → hier) // Armband: Gilson Martins (Brasil) // Sonnenbrille: Miu Miu “Noir” (verschiedene Farben → hier)

Dass meine Mama wunderschöne Sachen nähen kann, hab’ ich euch ja schon öfter gezeigt (zum Beispiel → hier mit diesem zauberhaften Kleid!) – heute möchte ich euch ein Kleid zeigen, dass eine ihrer Freundinnen genäht hat und die noch ein paar mehr davon schon für mich rausgesucht hat, damit ich viele schöne Fotos für euch machen kann. :) Sie macht wirklich tolle Sachen und deshalb möchte ich sie hier unterstützen, weil sie mich gefragt hat, ob ich nicht Lust hätte, ihre Sachen zu tragen und euch zu zeigen und wenn ihr Interesse habt, meldet euch bei mir (am besten per Mail), denn sie kann all die Sachen, die ich euch zeigen werde (im Moment hab’ ich noch zwei weitere Kleider hier, aber es kommt sicher noch mehr!), in vielen Größen maßgeschneidert für euch nähen. :)
Zum Beispiel auch dieses wunderschöne, petrolfarbene Kleid, das ich mit einem bunten, handbemalten Seidenschal als Gürtel ein bisschen taillierter gemacht habe (da das Kleid nicht direkt für mich geschnitten wurde, ist das ein winzig kleines Manko, das sich aber für die Fotos problemlos aufhübschen ließ). :)

Ich bin gespannt, was ihr sagt und hoffe, ihr freut euch auf die nächsten Kleider – die sind nämlich mindestens genauso schön! :)
