Before I show you the last outfit of my Anna Scholz for sheego lookbook, I’ve got an exclusive denim look for you that I styled in collaboration with sheego. This is actually kind of an official sheego look which I just altered with my own ideas – I didn’t even know it (guess I should apply as a brand stylist, haha!) until I saw my dear → Jules wearing it. ;)

I know that culottes aren’t everybody’s darling. People still stick to the opinion that they’re not flattering, especially when you’re short and/or fat. The thing is: yes, they’re probably not the most flattering piece of clothing one can own, but they’re super stylish and as long as you don’t just dress to look thinner (and in my opinion, that’s the only way that we have to erase from our minds because that’s not the number-one purpose of fashion!), you’re gonna love them. :) They’re comfy and so versatile (you all know my → classic black culottes and I’ve already shown you → more statement-like denim culottes before – these ones are → pretty basic and that’s what I like about them!).

For today’s look, I wanted to do something unusual and a bit 70s and modern hippie themed. So when I found the → paisley blouse and the → fuzzy vest (fake fur, as always!), I already had the whole look in my head. Just add a cool pair of → boots because it’s fall (those have an amazing detail, which is the block heel in red tortoise!), a floppy hat and round sunnies. Funny story: the belt I’m wearing is actually the one that comes with the vest, but since I wanted to wear the vest without it, I thought it would look great as a little contrast detail for the jeans. ;)

Body: H&M
Skirt: made by my mom
Belt: Ted Baker “Julo”
Peep-Toes: Jamie Jacobs
(designed by me)
Earrings: Dior “Mise en Dior”
Alternatives: ASOS body,
ASOS Curve body, ASOS belt,
Office sandals

I must admit that it’s already a bit too cold for this look – at least, the sun was shining when we took these pictures, but now there’s mostly rain and cloudy weather. Typical fall in Germany, I’d say… I guess I’ll have to do another take on this look, maybe with boots and less boobs (time for a turtleneck sweater now!). ;) But for now, I thought that this body was just perfect together with the skirt my mom made for me. It’s a very light rosé-beige and – like → this body – not easy to wear with a bra underneath. That’s why I skipped the bra again but wore a Spanx body suit which at least supports the bust from the sides. :)

I wish you all a lovely new week – I’ll have to relax a bit after last week’s crazy times at the Plus Size Fashion Days. So many amazing moments! I’ll tell you more about the event as soon as I get the photos (and the video, can’t wait to see it!). On Friday, you’ll get to see the outfit I wore at the opening party – dress code: “Black & Gold and All That Glitters”! Maybe some inspiration for Christmas and New Year’s Eve! ;)

• Recap & Thoughts | #BeachBodyNotSorry 2016 •

It’s already pretty cold outside but I still want to quickly talk about this year’s #BeachBodyNotSorry project and have a look at the beach outfits I wore this season. I kind of felt that plus-sized beach bodies were more present than ever in 2016. Of course there were a few very important moments like → Ashley Graham on the cover of “Sports Illustrated” or the most recent → “All Woman Project” launched by Clementine Desseaux and Charli Howard (featuring some amazing beach wear by Phylyda – I hope I can work with this brand next year!). But we also had bloggers showing their beach bodies everywhere and it makes me proud to say that I’m a part of this – again.

Unfortunately, this time I couldn’t show as many looks as → last year – on the one hand, there simply was a lack of new beach wear (I just didn’t want to wear everything again, but neither did I want to spend loads of money on new stuff – cause our summer in Germany isn’t long enough to hoard uncountable masses of bikinis and swimsuits), on the other hand, I missed almost 90% of our summer because I was very sick. Even beginning to shoot before the start of the official beach season wasn’t that helpful, so I only managed to do five looks (plus two “covered” beach styles, meaning: one with a kaftan and another one wearing transparent stuff over my bikini).

So let’s recap my #BeachBodyNotSorry looks of 2016…

Swimsuit: H&M
Beach Towel: Aragem Rio
Hat: Bits And Pieces
Earrings: COR:TT “Cube Rock”

Well, not exactly Rio, but the good old dunes. And the title comes from the beach towel which I bought last year in Rio de Janeiro, at Aragem Rio. It has the most beautiful print, including typical forest and animal images from Brazil but also the “skyline” of Rio with Corcovado and Pão de Açúcar.

This is my last #BeachBodyNotSorry post for this year and at the same time my favorite – because it is so colorful and elegant. And then there’s the hat with my name on it. It was always difficult for me to get stuff with my name because Luciana isn’t really German (obviously, haha!) and therefore you can never find it on cups and other souvenirs. But there’s a lovely lady in Lebanon who makes these hats and was so kind to individualize one for me – not only could I choose the color but also what’s supposed to be written on it. If you have a look on Instagram, bloggers like to wear hats with “Out of Office” written on them or “Do not disturb” – I just wanted to finally own something with my name on it, so Luciana it was. ;) I’m so, so happy with this hat! Thank you again, Alia!

The swimsuit I’m wearing is already pretty old, I guess from 2010. It’s funny that it still fits (and that’s a size 42!). :) But it has always been one of my favorites, so I finally decided to wear it for the project, even though it’s not available anymore. I searched for similar swimsuits – here’s my selection:

So, back to #BeachBodyNotSorry – I’m pretty sad that I didn’t manage to do and blog more beach styles this year. Somehow the weather wasn’t good enough for my plans and then I was sick when I would have had the chance to do actual summer looks. I also didn’t buy new swimsuits and bikins and I didn’t want to show everything again (it’s different from normal outfits, you know what I mean…). But let’s just see what happens next year. :) If you want to see last year, just → click here or on the button in the sidebar on the right. I’ll also do another recap of this year and add a button for 2016. :)

By the way: I already talked about → the whole pump thing and it all being visible, and this time it’s my measuring system, the → FreeStyle Libre, which I put on my belly. I removed it from the photos because I felt it kind of distracted from the actual look, but you can still see it in the video. No biggie but I wanted to explain. ;) It’s still a part of me, but sometimes the artist in me feels annoyed by its appearance in the pictures. ;)
