Look who’s back! The extravagant Lu! :) No, seriously, I’m happy to finally show you something more special again!
I wore this fancy dress at the Plus Size Fashion Days after show party – not exactly combined like this because I had to stick to my look from the show (no time for a different make-up afterwards) and I had to wear other shoes cause I knew my feet would be dead after two days in high heels and, to be honest, these aren’t my comfiest heels, even though they’re the most perfect match for the dress.
I ordered this dress via Instagram from Canada and I was actually scared that it wouldn’t arrive in time but I was lucky. The quality could be a little bit better but it’s still a showstopper and I’m glad I bought it. Let’s just hope for another occasion to wear it! :)
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. :)
When I was thinking about what I could wear for my friend’s wedding, this was one of my ideas. But I didn’t choose this one because I thought it’s too much. But I hope that there’ll be another occasion, maybe a summer party, where I can wear it because I really love this look and I felt like a summer princess in it (I think you can see my joy and the fun I had wearing it in the video!). :)
In the end, I went for a completely different outfit for the wedding (it was on Saturday!) and I’ll show it to you in one of my next outfit posts. I think that it was a good idea to wear something else than the obvious “black and chic” look because I still have that feeling that you shouldn’t really wear black for a wedding, even though it’s always a great choice. ;) I can’t wait to show you my look and I’m sure you’re going to love it as much as I did and still do. ;)
That’s the last outfit we got to shoot before Hamburg decided to switch into rain mode for, like, forever. The moment I stood in position, ready to shoot, it was like the world decided to show us how much rain was saved in those dark clouds. People walking by the bus stop in front of me (and those sitting in the buses – hello!) must have thought that I’m totally insane, but work is work, right? After the shooting I felt like I had been dipped in a pool backwards – got a hot cup of tea at home and wrapped myself up on the couch. So obviously what I said a few posts ago really happened: more rain, more wind, more darkness and more “I don’t want to go outside!” – and why should I? To get soaked, catch a cold and stay alone at home in bed with loads of tea and medicine? I don’t think so! Let’s hope for some better weather soon, I’d love to shoot again next weekend! :)
Today, I’ve got an idea for a party look for New Year’s Eve for you. Last time going outside with bare legs. I hope that you all will party inside most of the time if you wear such an outfit, cause I know now what it feels like to get into the typical bad weather on NYE (at least I don’t know other weather that night, I guess all my life it was raining at midnight…) – and you don’t want to do this, believe me. :) You better pack an extra pair of warm boots, haha! ;)
Anyways: Christmas and NYE are the best time to shine and sparkle, that’s why I got this dress and paired it with some fun blue heels. Since it’s definitely going to be cold outside (that’s a fact, unless you’re celebrating at the beach – and I’m already jealous!), I added a fuzzy jacket and fixed it with a belt. Of course, it makes me look like a tiny thick teddy bear, but I guess everybody looks a bit fatter in such jackets, right? And it’s about having fun with your clothes and I definitely like the combination – it’s a statement! But as the dress looks great alone, you’ll get to see a few pictures of me freezing in the rain, just for you. And please excuse the poor quality of the pictures, it got darker and darker with every click. Sad story, I really wanted to shine but had no chance against the clouds… :(
