Something I really like to do is re-style my clothes. I know it’s always more interesting to see new stuff and that’s what fashion bloggers are all about – always showing the latest trends. But I think we should also be role models when it comes to “sustainable clothing”. There’s nothing wrong about wearing something twice or even more often. And it’s fun to challenge your creativity by giving “old” pieces a new look.

It’s been some time since I showed you this dress on the blog (shame on me!), but at least I’m giving you a completely new take on this piece today. And it’s easy to recreate with any dress you already have at home. Just wear a blouse underneath. Nothing new and not a big deal, but it changes the whole look, plus: it’s definitely something you can wear at work. ;)

Here’s the last piece of my little Marina Rinaldi x Stella Jean series on the blog – I promised you a color bomb and there it is! :) This dress is my absolute favorite of the whole collection, it’s just so perfect and beautiful and such a great piece for summer! I love that Frida Kahlo vibe it has and even though it is super colorful, it’s so much fun to over-colorize with accessories, for example with statement sunnies. First, I thought they could be too much, but then I was like “why not?” and actually love the combo (which was much needed because the sun was super bright on that day!). Instead of wearing the obvious red lipstick which I already wore to the Stella Jean FW event in February, I went for pink and also added my pink Dior earrings for that extra dab of color. ;)

Yeah, I’m currently doing a few series, I guess. There’s not only one piece missing in my Marina Rinaldi x Stella Jean trilogy but I also still had this amazing crop top from H&M’s last designer collaboration in my closet waiting for spring – so here we are! :)

Even though we’ve been fighting a lot for plus size acceptance (in fashion), crop tops are still an issue. I totally understand if it’s simply not someone’s taste to show your tummy, but it’s also important to accept if someone wants to wear cropped clothes – and yes, this also includes fat women. Because there’s no such thing as “this is only reserved for skinny girls”. ;)

I liked many pieces of the collection with Kenzo but this print was my favorite, that’s why I bought two pieces with it – this crop top and, as you already know, → this dress. I’ll definitely be wearing the dress again this spring/summer because it’s so light and easy to wear, but this top is also super cool and will be a great addition to any other skirt or jeans. We already had a few warm days here but it’s currently super disgusting outside, rainy and cold, and I really hope that the sun comes back as soon as possible – I can’t take this bad weather anymore!

One day after my birthday, I spoiled myself with a gift from myself to myself in Milan – this amazing jumpsuit! I had already fallen in love with the Stella Jean collection for Marina Rinaldi last year at the presentation. The collection may be a little over the top, especially when you combine the clothes for an all-over Stella Jean look, which is kind of a bit too much, but there are a few single pieces that are simply amazing and I’m glad to be able to present more than one to you. I bought this jumpsuit because I couldn’t resist (the heart wants what the heart wants – and birthdays are a good reason to spend a little more money on a single piece than usual, haha!) but luckily also received two other gorgeous pieces from the collection (choosing was SO hard!) which I’ll be showing you soon – so stay tuned for some more colorful and graphically super interesting stuff!

Did you know that these prints are inspired by Stella Jean’s Haitian heritage? Since I’m already an African wax print lover (not the same, though, I know), you can imagine how much I love this one! And the bold colors are simply amazing! Can’t wait to show you the other two pieces I chose – one of them is a little more simple and the other one is extremely colorful! Totally me! ♥
