And here’s another new friend – the amazing jeans from sheego I wore on the catwalk at the → Plus Size Fashion Days! These pants are SO amazing, I was absolutely stunned when I put them on for the first time. I usually wouldn’t choose the biker style for myself, but I kind of liked it when I “had” to wear it and got used to it. ;) I actually wanted to buy these jeans in blue too, but they were sold out, so now I’m hoping that they come back so I can get another pair. ;)

These are petite length, which means: perfect for me, as I’m only 5’3” – I’m always happy when I find brands who do shorter lengths because that’s always a minus when I finally find a good pair of jeans or pants in general.

You may remember that in April, I went to the → blogger event at the Murek Hamburg headquarters (P.S.: they’ve got an online shop now!) and we got to choose our favorite pieces from the fall/winter collection. This coat is one of three gorgeous jackets I chose and it was also a bloggers’ favorite. I guess we all put it on our wish list. :)

In cooperation with Happy Size.

I promised you that there’d be more pants coming after I wore them a lot at the → PSFD. The first look is with my new destroyed jeans from Happy Size. → Claus created a second look for me which I individualized a bit by adding my hat and a choker which gives it that special touch, kinda “Glam Rock”.

It is indeed something different for me, not only because of the pants but especially because of the (fake) leather jacket. I think I last wore a leather jacket in 2007. I never really liked them because I’m not really into that “rock style”, but sometimes it’s good to have someone who makes you try something different. It’s good to leave your comfort zone and you can always make a different styling your own by adding some characteristic details. For me, it’s definitely the hat, the extravagant choker and – of course – the bold lips. And guess what – I’ve already worn the jacket again! ;)

boohoo Plus bomber jacket, ASOS bomber jacket,
ASOS bomber jacket, Marie Meilie bra,
Wolf & Whistle bra, ASOS boots

You know I’m always open for new things – this time, it’s a VERY different look (and to be honest, just an editorial for the blog – I went outside like this but didn’t wear it for shopping or something, but sometimes I like to shoot something only for the blog, so please don’t mind if there’s something that’s probably not too “everyday” every now an then!). Since the bomber jacket was already something new for me and it was not that easy to come up with ideas on how to wear it (gosh, I still wish it were a little bit shorter because I really love it!), I just did it and went for something that’s completely different from every other look here on the blog. I don’t even know how to describe it properly, I think it’s kind of ghetto and hip hop and also a bit 90s, so I don’t even want to write too much but let you guys see a very different side of me – definitely unusual, but I actually like it. :)

Oh, and: no Photoshop, as ALWAYS – that’s why you can see a bit of my stretch marks and that’s absolutely okay. I think it’s fine to wear cropped clothes whenever you feel like it, no matter what’s not “perfect” about your body. :)

In cooperation with Forever 21.

I’ve already shown my latest shopping haul on → Instagram – these amazing jeans from Forever 21 Plus. Thanks to our current cooperation, I finally gave their jeans a shot and it was a very positive surprise! These pants fit like a glove (even though I recommend taking them a size up maybe – I went for my usual EU 48 and I think they could be a little more loose at the upper hem, but that will probably be no problem after wearing them a few times) and they have the perfect length for short people like me (1.60 m).

For my casual day-to-night look, I chose something new: a vest. I don’t really like vests on me but after I saw this one, I wanted to give them a new chance. And as you can see, I like it (if not, I wouldn’t be showing this look) and it looks pretty good on me – at least that’s what I think. ;)
I also did something funny: the top I’m wearing is actually a skirt. Remember that I keep telling you that fashion is fun? Here’s an example! Why not make some pieces work for you in another way? :) And I’m pretty sure that if I hadn’t told you that it’s a skirt, you wouldn’t have even noticed, right? ;)

For daytime, these boots are absolutely perfect, they’re comfy and stylish. Of course you can also wear them at night, but maybe, if you want to make this look more sexy, you can go for high heels. ;)
