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!

Oh, silk dresses – it’s a love-hate relationship. On the one hand, there’s nothing more pleasant to wear. On the other hand, silk’s the worst of all materials when it comes to wrinkles (short quote from one of my Instagram live chats when I wore the dress: “Silk is the asshole of all fabrics.” – true that.). Hello iron, my best friend! :D

Anyways – I love the colors of this striped dress and I also love the length. Instead of using the actual belt (the dress comes with a matching thin silk band), I opted for something more special: my Gucci crossbody bag which I changed into a fanny pack. :) Definitely more fashion, right?

About the shoes – I never thought that I’d ever own golden shoes, especially not loafers, but when I saw them, I kind of had to buy them. And today’s look was just perfect for their first time on the road. ;)

Here we go – time for the first “real” outfit of the new year! I’ve saved this dress for a special post because it’s so amazing! When the Kenzo x H&M collection was launched, I was pretty sad that there were only the usual “small” sizes available – but there were a few oversized pieces which could definitely been bought and worn by plus-sized women. Like this dress! This is a EU size 40 and still huge enough for me to wear it like it’s supposed to be worn – oversized. It’s also my favorite print of the collection and I love the combination with black.

While I usually love wearing figure-hugging clothes or add a belt to make them look like it, this time, I felt like wearing a belt would ruin the whole look (even though it’s kind of cool too), so I went for the original style and yes, I love it. I feel like as a plus-sized woman people will keep saying that wearing something oversized isn’t flattering, while they’ll also scream when you can see my body (happens all the time…). So there’s no way to please everyone – and it shouldn’t be your primary mission when dressing. So here’s a resolution for the new year: if you like it – wear it. Nothing new on this blog, but I feel like I can’t say it often enough – and I want you all to promise me that you’ll stick to this resolution! Stop wearing stuff recommended by people who don’t even know you (uh, magazines – forget them!) just to please them. Stop wearing stuff that you think will make people stop thinking badly of you when you don’t even like the clothes. If you feel like wearing something that draws attention to you – wear it! If you feel like wearing something oversized that will make you look huge – wear it! If you feel like wearing something that will show every little chubby part of your body – wear it! It’s your choice – never forget this! ♥

In cooperation with sheego.

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. ;)
