Parka: Anna Scholz for sheego
Sweater: Doris Streich
Jeans: Zizzi
Sneaker: Converse Premium
Hat: Bernstock Speirs
“Suede Rome Cap”
In cooperation with sheego.

My favorite piece of the whole collection is this parka – just because it’s something very different and I like outstanding stuff. ;) And of course because the parka is just gorgeous. The Japanese-inspired embroidery is such a great highlight and makes the casual parka very special.
I still went for a more casual combination, with jeans and a warm sweater, but of course not without some extra sparkle – my sequined sneakers definitely completed the look and made it even more “me”!

I also decided to do a very natural make-up, and today you’ll find some tips on how to do a “no-make-up make-up” on → sheego’s blog “feel happy!”, so don’t forget to have a look!

I’m getting a bit experimental with new things at the moment – this blouse is something very different. I’ve never worn a long blouse, just because I don’t like it for my figure. I really need to emphasize my waist and long blouses are normally cut extremely wide and straight so it looks like I’m just wearing a formless sack. This one is very special, not only because of the side cuts but also because of the front detail. It first left me kind of desperate because when it arrived here, I had to figure out how the knot detail had to be tied. Also, I’m wearing it tied around the waist – because I think it’s actually supposed to fall down in the front, but you can also wear it like this. So this is how I made it fitted at the waist and therefore work for me. :) Anyways: I love it. This time, I went for a casual but rather sexy look with high heels and a harness at the cleavage. Next time, I want to try a look with sneakers or so. By the way, I didn’t iron the blouse on purpose because I like the wrinkled look (and the fabric is pretty sensitive so it gets crinkled anyways). ;)

Not much time ago, there was this scandal about Oprah Magazine talking about crop tops and saying that you should feel free to try them “if (and only if!) you’ve got a flat stomach”. It caused a major shitstorm and made many – especially plus-sized – girls post pictures of them wearing crop tops with the hashtags #rockthecrop #pullingofacroptop #ifandonlyifiwantto. I joined this movement on → Instagram (and → Facebook) because I think that it’s not okay to tell someone what he or she is allowed to wear. That’s arrogant in many ways and not the right way for a magazine to give tips on how to dress.

I’m not willing to dress for anyone, especially not for total strangers. I dress for myself, wear what I like in this exact moment. And if that’s a crop top, I’ll wear it. Just like in this post today. I’m not wearing it to say: “Hey, I’m fat and I’m wearing a crop top!”, it has nothing to do with being a rebel. The thing is: I saw this top online, fell in love with the colors and the design and had to get it.
I enjoyed wearing it and while we were shooting the pictures – in front of many people – no one looked at me and had to throw up or told me that I was disgusting. No one came up to me and said that I should only wear a crop top with a flat tummy. No one was horrified and ran away.

What I want to say: when you wear what you want and add the right attitude (feel good!), nobody will ruin your day. Of course there might be some people looking at you, but always remember: some might be surprised, maybe because they don’t see fat people wearing such beautiful clothes that often (sadly!), maybe because they think you’re gorgeous, maybe because they wish they weren’t afraid of doing the same. Sure, some will look and shake their heads, giving you that evil look and making you feel like you’re a major piece of shit, but do you really want to take these strangers seriously? Will you let them tell you what you’re allowed to wear? Do you really want to depend on their opinion? Choose your daily look according to their wishes? Do you really want to dress yourself for a stranger? I’m sure the answer is: no.
You don’t have to wear a crop top, you don’t have to prove to anyone that you can rock a crop top. If you don’t like them, nobody’s forcing you to wear them. Just wear whatever you want, but please don’t listen to such bullshit tips that tell you how to dress – you’ve got your own mind, use it and be creative! :)

ENBe prepared – this is a shoe love story. :)
When I first saw these beauties as a preview on → Sue’s Instagram account, I knew that these shoes would be mine. I’d do everything to get them as soon as they were available. I waited and waited, checked the Nike online store for news on when they’d be released and already phoned a few sneaker stores one week before their launch to know if I’d be able to even reserve a pair (of course, I wasn’t the only one who had fallen in love at first sight – the Internet was full of love declarations and I was seriously afraid that I’d miss them). But no, no reservations.
The release date was first postponed, then moved back to the original day and so I tried it again, gave the Nike Store here in Hamburg a call and they had already arrived on exactly that day, a few days before the official start. Lucky me! :)
I’m pretty sure I’ve never made it downtown that fast and have never tried on a pair of shoes that quickly – after three minutes, they were mine. And that’s how a non-sneaker person became a sneaker person. :) Aren’t they gorgeous? I’m still a high heels lover (as a little dwarf, they’re just better for me, making me look taller than I am and creating loooong legs – and actually more my style, sneakers mostly just don’t look good with dresses), but I’ve definitely been wearing sneakers more often since I got them. :)

DEIch warne euch vor – das ist eine Schuh-Liebesgeschichte. :)
Als ich diese Hübschen als Preview bei → Sue auf Instagram gesehen hab’, wusste ich, dass die Schuhe mir gehören würden. Ich würde alles dafür tun, um sie zu bekommen, sobald sie erhältlich sind. Ich habe also gewartet und gewartet, den Nike Onlineshop immer wieder gecheckt, um zu erfahren, wann sie rauskommen, hab’ sogar diverse Sneaker-Shops angerufen, um zu fragen, ob ich sie reservieren kann (ich war natürlich nicht die Einzige, die sich auf den ersten Blick verliebt hat, und hatte deshalb wirklich Angst, sie zu verpassen). Aber nein, keine Reservierungen.
Dann wurde der Release-Termin verschoben, wieder zurück auf den ursprünglichen Tag gesetzt und so hab’ ich es dann einfach nochmal versucht, beim Nike Store hier in Hamburg angerufen und erfahren, dass sie genau an dem Tag schon angekommen waren – früher als geplant. Glückliche Lu! :)
Ich bin mir ziemlich sicher, dass ich noch nie so schnell in der Stadt war und auch noch nie so ratzfatz ein Paar Schuhe anprobiert hab’ – nach drei Minuten waren sie mein. Und so wurde aus einem Nicht-Sneaker-Menschen ein Sneaker-Mensch. :) Sind sie nicht wunderschön? Natürlich bin ich immer noch ein großer Fan von High Heels (als kleiner Gartenzwerg sind hohe Schuhe einfach besser für mich, mit denen ich etwas größer aussehe und die mir laaaange Beine zaubern – und irgendwie passen sie ja doch mehr zu meinem Stil, denn Sneaker schauen zu Kleidern meistens nicht sonderlich gut aus), aber seit ich die hier habe, trage ich eindeutig öfter mal Sneaker. :)
