Today’s outfit has a funny story behind the look – cause these aren’t my own clothes! :)
I’ve been following Katharina for a long time and always swooning over her photos, she’s an amazing photographer from Koblenz and when I was in Düsseldorf a few weeks ago, we managed to do a super quick shoot together before I had to leave for the airport. I’m incredibly happy that we finally met and had the chance to take some pictures!
Since my wardrobe is still very limited, she brought some of her own clothes so we could do one very different look. I mean: especially that jacket is something I’d never buy on my own cause I’d believe that it’s not my style but I actually love it! Especially in combination with that lovely dress!
You see: sometimes, it’s cool to let someone else dress you up (or at least get some different ideas from a friend or so) and give new things a chance. ;)
I think this look is kind of unusual for me – not because of the whole style but because of the shirt. I usually don’t wear shirts with messages on them, but this time I couldn’t resist buying this tee because it says what I always tell you:
“you are your own beautiful”
I’ve already had this topic in → one of my “Private” posts, talking about “perfect” and how we can only define it for ourselves. It’s important that we understand that “beautiful” isn’t set in stone, it’s something that lies in the eye of the beholder, and we can only define it for ourselves because of our very own taste. Plus: “beautiful” isn’t only an adjective for the outer shell. A character can be so incredibly beautiful when it comes from a loving soul. Being beautiful doesn’t only mean pretty – you can be even more beautiful when you treat others with respect, tolerance and love.
Of course, this outfit is still a bit unusual for me because of the casual look. But still, the skirt is super sparkling – too bad the lighting outside swallowed all that colorful glitter (the skirt looks purple but the glitter is blue, golden and pink) which makes it all special enough for my taste. :)
This is a look that I completely planned in my head and really hoped that it’d turn out as amazing as I saw it when putting the pieces together in my mind – and I’d say: yes, it did!
It’s probably one of those looks that you wouldn’t expect from me, but I like to surprise as much as I like to do all those obvious dress looks – not only you but also myself. And I must say that this surprise turned out to be a golden ticket for me: I love this look so much, especially because of those pants! They’re fake leather but so incredibly soft and great to wear – if you’re looking for some perfect quality fake leather pants, you HAVE TO try these. I know they’re pretty expensive, but they’re worth every cent (and also available in black)!
I’m a big fan of how these fall colors work together – we have the brown pants, a greyish white lace blouse, a dark purple and brown jacket and the shoes in a very dark brown shade – and all those colors look absolutely great in combination! I liked the combo so much, I even had to recreate it for my make-up. ;) Love the dramatic look with the smoky eyes and matte lips (for which I mixed three different liquid lipsticks for the perfect shade and some ombré). :)
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!

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.
