It’s finally time for a new Anna Scholz for sheego lookbook on the blog again! As every season (find all previous posts → here), I’ve teamed up with sheego for a small lookbook with my three  favorite pieces of the collection (which is already available!).

My favorite number one must be the highlight dress of the latest collection – a gorgeous → wrap dress with a kaleidoscopic butterfly print. When I was at the “Panorama” fair with sheego in January, Anna Scholz herself wore the dress and it instantly became a must-have piece for me, so that’s my first choice to show you.

It is very easy to style this dress, since it doesn’t need too many accessories – it shines by itself. But I still wanted to give it all a special touch, that’s why I chose some red splashes of color to compliment the bold print. ;) I’m wearing a EU size 46 but I’m pretty sure a 44 would also work (could be a tiny bit too tight around my hips, that’s why I went for the 46). Depending on your body shape, it’s up to you to decide when you’re in between two sizes. Just have a look at your body and decide whether you need a tighter or looser fit.

From → cozy and casual directly to → the first LBD of the year – and yet another kind of business look, I guess. It’s probably because of the glasses, but whenever I take pictures with them, I feel like I’m ready to be a super important secretary. ;) I’m pretty sure that by adding more office-appropriate shoes (thinking about not-that-high, maybe suede or at least not patent leather pumps) and a blazer (maybe even a colorful one if you want to go for black with a twist), this is definitely a dress that can be worn to work. Even though it’s amazing as a classic LBD and also pretty versatile – it can look more playful thanks to the polka dots, but also very chic and classy if you add a belt, some fancy heels and maybe drop the glasses (I’m always a contact lens girl when it comes to special occasions). ;)

The dress is an amazing “new in” from Scarlett & Jo and also → available in black and white (black skirt, upper part is white), even though I must say that I absolutely prefer the all-black version. ;) Can’t go wrong with an LBD, right? ;) Here, I’m wearing my usual UK 16 again because of the bodycon fit and I’m happy to say that it fits perfectly as always. ;)

P.S.: The → S&J SALE is ending these days and if you want to get one of the amazing pieces you should hurry. There’s one of my favorites, for example, the → “Tall Wrap Dress” which you know from → this post! ;)

As you can see, the first outfit post of the year is a very special one! Today marks the 8th birthday of this blog and I’m more than proud of this! It’s incredible how many amazing things happened in all these years – just because of my little space on the Internet. I’ve not only been present online but also in magazines, on the radio and on TV – and I’m so happy to be able to share my #bodypositivity message with the world: everyBODY is beautiful.

Of course, this has been kind of a journey for myself too because I hadn’t started the blog with this message, even though I’ve never had a problem with me and my body and it would have been a great idea to make this the main topic of the blog right from the beginning. Every time I’m asked when and why I started blogging, I answer the same: “There was no intention, I was sick in bed that day and kind of bored. I had already been blogging for two years and found out that there were also blogs (not only diary blogs) about certain topics – so I found the first fashion blogs and wanted to do one myself and decided to share my outfits with the world.”

Never ever would I have thought that this day in bed would bring me so much joy (yeah, and also some pretty frustrating days – but we already talked about this), so many amazing experiences and – of course: you! It’s incredible how many you are, from all around the globe. And I’m so thankful to be able to reach you, to sometimes even change your world. Receiving your messages, not only the comments but also e-mails and even letters, is overwhelming. Reading that you tried on a dress for the first time (or for the first time in years) or that you finally went to the beach wearing a bikini and had fun instead of fear or that you saw that it’s okay to love yourself “even though” (I don’t really like to say it because it seems like it’s not okay, but it is!) you’re fat and everyone else tells you it’s not – I have no words to tell you how great that feels. How happy it makes me to have such a positive impact on your lives. To be a role model. I’m proud and that’s why I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. ♥

If there’s one wish I have (without the huge birthday cake and blowing out the candles) and may tell you: please continue to write me. I love your feedback, I love knowing that I’m being read and heard. Blogging is not a one-way thing, it’s all about interaction and being a community. So please: whenever you feel the need to say something – just do it and leave a comment or write me an e-mail or letter. I promise that I’ll always try my best to answer. I must confess that I don’t answer every comment on Facebook and Instagram (sorry about that, but everyone asking me obvious things like “where’s the dress from?” even if it’s already tagged in the picture just has to have a look up here!), but since the blog is my actual number one, here’s where you can tell me everything and count on a reply.

P.S.: I’m a bad giveaway maker, but since this is a very special occasion and it is the first time after 8 years that I really remembered the date (gosh, I’m so bad with dates and birthdays, it’s a shame…) – don’t worry, of course there’ll be a little blogiversary giveaway. Promise!

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! :)
