I must admit – after correcting the colors and sharpness of today’s pictures, somehow, the legs ended up with some weird texture. Don’t worry, though – I didn’t retouch anything and you can obviously see my cellulite! With that in mind, I kindly welcome you to this year’s #BeachBodyNotSorry project! :)

I already got to know about Phylyda last year but there was no time for a collab left. I’m so happy that we managed to do something for this season and this also means that by now, I already own three bikinis from Phylyda, since I escalated at the pop-up store back in April. No “oops” from me because these pieces are worth every cent and their “mix & match” ability is level 100 – every combination looks just amazing! Lydia, the founder of Phylyda, asked me to shoot this combo and I happily said yes, crossed a fence, climbed down many rocks and positioned myself at the Elbe at low tide for a photo shoot that made many people stare (of course, it was so super sunny on that Sunday, so everybody was out for a walk…). And I loved it! Best way to start a new season of my favorite project. Can’t wait to do more of these shoots and I hope you’re also super excited to see more of them!

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. ;)

It’s been some time since you last saw me with my glasses on – so after the pants I thought it would be nice to bring them back for a special post. They’re on my nose every day but I somehow prefer not to wear them for our shoots. This time, they were exactly what the look needed to be perfect. ;) I guess I should show them more often – glasses can definitely be a great accessory, even if you don’t need them (I do, I’m kind of a mole without them). ;)

But the main actor of today’s post is the plush jacket. I don’t support fur and actually, wearing fake fur isn’t the best idea either because even fake fur can sometimes be real fur and you should definitely check first before you buy or just don’t do it at all. I don’t want to make this post a discussion about morals because I don’t judge people who like fur and I don’t see myself in a position to judge because I eat meat and wear leather, so it’d be kind of hypocritical to do so. Still, I believe that we’re living in a world where fur is pure luxury and not needed – and it is so wrong how mankind “produces” fur products. Anyways, fake fur is definitely a better option if you can’t do without it, and yes, as a style blogger I do like the look of fake fur in winter – especially when it’s such an amazing jacket.

When I went to the market place of → this year’s PSFD, I saw → myPePita’s booth and the jacket instantly caught my eye. It’s such a wonderfully different color combo, a very light gray with a kind of blueish glow, mixed with red and brown and these bold black tiger-like stripes. It’s a statement piece for sure! And the plushy feel ist so soft and great, you won’t even want this to be real fur, it’s more like a cuddly teddy bear that’s warming you. ;) I’m so in love with that jacket and after checking the online store, I found many other pieces I really like – you should definitely have a look at myPePita because it’s another stylish plus-size shop (from EU size 42) which offers actual fashion! And if you feel like ordering, I’ve got something for you – get 15% off your order by using the code Lu1116 at the checkout. :)

First, I wanted to do a look with a flared black dress, but then I decided to do another outfit with my beloved “Lola” dress from Beth Ditto. I love the combo with the dove-gray dress and black details, it’s definitely more interesting than the obvious choice, which is black. Also, it’s good to wear something tight underneath the huge jacket. It will still show your body shape. For some extra attention on the waist (another figure saver and hourglass figure creator, even when you can’t see the whole silhouette), I added a black belt.

I actually wanted to name this post “Os quindins de yayá” because the whole look reminds me of one of my favorite childhood movies, “The Three Caballeros”, with Donald Duck, José Carioca and Panchito – there’s a scene where they travel to Bahia and meet Aurora Miranda, Carmen Miranda’s younger sister, and → she sings this song called “Os quindins de yayá” wearing a typical look from Bahia. I think my look is a modern and more minimalistic version of it and that’s where the actual idea for today’s post title came from. But I went for “Level 5” cause that’s where we shot the photos and it’s a bit easier and doesn’t need any explanation. ;)

So, I’m back with another head wrap and a Carmen (Miranda, haha!) top, which I wore with a black maxi skirt for a casual and relaxed summer look. And since I’m currently so in love with → Urban Decay’s “XX Vice LTD Reloaded” palette, I did a very special colorful make-up that’s supposed to match the silk scarf turban. Even though I love natural make-ups (well, only talking about the eyes), I’m having fun doing color bombs at the moment – the palette made me do it and I’m actually very happy about this! Somehow I’m going back to the (blog’s) roots, when everything was more experimental and colorful – even though I’m happy that my fashion style changed a lot. ;)
