It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I’ve got the perfect dress for those of you who plan to go out for a luxurious romantic dinner for two. :) And by “I’ve got one”, I literally mean that I’ve got one for you, because one of you can win this dress in her size, just in time for Valentine’s Day on Sunday. :)

Like every dress from Scarlett & Jo, this is another perfect curve-hugging dress. Made of soft lace that falls beautifully around the legs (love the fishtail!), it makes your figure look stunning (I’m sure you can all see what I mean!). This time, I went for a UK size 18, just because I wanted it not to be too tight around my hips, and it was a good choice. So if you have wide hips like me, you should consider buying it a size up – or if you’re the happy winner, just tell me the size you need. ;)

Here’s how to win:

1 • like → Scarlett & Jo on Facebook – you can also like my Facebook page → here, but that’s optional. ;)
and
2 • leave a comment here under this blog post (if you don’t comment via Facebook, please make sure to leave your e-mail address, which won’t be visible to everyone, just me – so I can contact you afterwards) telling me what you’d love to do on Valentine’s Day,
all that
3 • by tomorrow, Tuesday, February 9 (so the winner can receive the dress by Saturday!)

The winner is Vanessa Myslinski – congrats!

I promise that’s my last look from fall (actually shot on November 1 – you see, we really work a lot in advance…). But our temperatures at the moment are definitely warm enough to make this look wearable. ;) Maybe now with boots and tights instead of peep-toe heels, but still a great everyday outfit. :)

I already showed you my make-up some time ago, so if you like it, feel free to read more about it → here. ;)

Well, to be honest, I don’t have nothing to tell you today. The last days have been pretty sleepy for me. Since I was sick (and finally better now!), I spent Christmas mostly in bed or eating, watching two new series (“The Royals” and “Fear the Walking Dead”) and just chilling. Now it’s time to do the last deeds of the year and wrap it up with a BOOM! :) I’m looking forward to welcoming our friends up here in a few days and celebrate New Year’s Eve with my besties – can’t wait! What are you guys up to on NYE?

My last look of the exclusive lookbook I created for the Anna Scholz x sheego collection is all about this black lace dress, a very classic piece. And it’s also one of my inspirational outfits for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. There will be a few more coming so you can get ready for all the upcoming festive occasions. :)

Black is always a great choice for any party and especially lace dresses are absolutely classy and look great on every woman. This dress has a V-neck and transparent short sleeves, a formfitting and curve-hugging cut and the perfect length for formal occasions, that’s why I went for a more elegant style for our editorial. I guess you could wear this for your Christmas party at work! ;)

Instead of wearing obvious black heels, I picked nude platform sandals – they’re a bit more special and the color is great to make your legs look a bit longer (which is great for me, since I’m so small!). I also added silver jewelry and a red clutch that matches my lipstick (but I chose two different reds to make it a little more interesting!).

This dress doesn’t need more details around it, but, for example, you could also wear it with a belt, or add a blazer, wear it with black pumps or in this case with red ones, you could style it more casually with a leather jacket or a denim jacket in summer – since it’s a classic piece and black is extremely versatile, there are so many ways to wear it, you just have to be creative! :)

Of course, there’s also a special blog post available on → sheego’s blog “feel happy!”, where you can find more information about my make-up, including tips on how to create perfect red lips!

A few days ago, the Victoria’s Secret Show 2015 was filmed in New York and will air on December 8. There was a lot of trouble going on and I felt the need to post a picture on → Instagram, which is supposed to send you a special message. Somehow, I guess that’s not enough, more like a drop in the ocean (and I got to read a few very sad comments from people who either didn’t get the message or just were rude, mindless idiots), but as we should never stop talking about size diversity and body positivity and especially do something against body shaming, I take these pictures from my latest shooting with → Mici (who has this great project → Charosé with her friend → Summer, two great bloggers, by the way!) and want to spread the words I have to say and hopefully change a few minds.

Here’s what I wrote under → my picture on Instagram:

“With all that #victoriassecretshow trouble going on, it’s time to remind yourselves that these models’ bodies aren’t the only body type that’s good – every body can be beautiful, sexy, admirable and something to look up to. You’re not worth less only because you don’t look like all those “Angels” on stage. You’re not less sexy because you have a big belly or thick thighs, you’re not disgusting because you don’t have a six pack or no thigh gap. Please always remember: you’re not supposed to look like an underwear model, they shouldn’t be your number one goal and you’re allowed to be yourself, fully dressed, in underwear or naked. You’re good the way you are. Oh and because I like to promote size diversity and not body shaming: the models look great, that’s not the point! It’s about loving yourself and accepting not only your body but also other people’s bodies.”
