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. :)

Dress: Scarlett & Jo
Pumps: Valentino “Rockstud”
Bag: Dior “Lady Dior”
Earrings: Chanel
Alternatives: Scarlett & Jo floral dress,
Scarlett & Jo polka dot dress, Lost Ink pumps,
ASOS pumps

Another super classic black & white look for which I went very matchy-matchy (shoooooeeees!). ;)

I need to be honest with you and tell you that unfortunately, there’s no way to get this dress at the moment. It’s from Scarlett & Jo and was only available at SimplyBe UK (so not even shipping to Germany) and is currently sold out, but I really hope that S&J will be restocking and sell it in their own shop so you can all get this amazing dress! Until then, there are two dresses of the same cut & style but with different prints: find → option n° 1 here and → option n° 2 here.
At first, I thought that the belt (it’s part of the dress but detachable) would be a bit too much, but when you’re all ready with hair and make-up done, wearing nice shoes and accessories, the belt is definitely a great addition, it brings in a bit more contrast – and that’s good. ;)

I love these very classic dresses which you can definitely style in a modern way but which also work if you stay true to their style. For this look I decided to go on with the ladylike look, so I picked my black and white “Rockstuds”, my “Lady Dior” and classic Chanel earrings, very luxurious accessories for a very sophisticated look.

At the moment, you’d definitely need to wear a warm coat, at least when you go outside. ;) I’d recommend a classic black one, I’d take → this one, it’s my favorite of all times. ;)

EDIT: The dress is now available (currently pre-order)! You can find it → here!

Earlier this month, I had my shopping day with the winners of the C&A giveaway. I’ll tell you more about it in my monthly recap, but this is one of two looks I found on that day. This one is a bit more classic and elegant, the other one more casual (→ here’s a sneak peek!).

Trousers have become a very rare sight here on the blog and also in my closet. The whole look is very unusual for me, since I don’t really like blazers on me (at least, this one doesn’t really look like one), and pants, well, I simply prefer dresses and skirts. That’s just the way it is. ;)

But from time to time, I like to do something different and try new things, and I felt like it when we strolled through the whole store (what a day – we spent almost five hours in there!). I’m curious to read what you think about it, since you don’t see me like this very often. I must say that I have to get used to these pants, but I like how they complete the look in the best way possible because of the pattern of the blazer. :) Wouldn’t be the same with a skirt!

Dress: H&M Trend
Sandals: Arezzo
Bag: Dior “Lady Dior”
Earrings: Dior “Mise en dior”
Bracelet: Hermès
Alternatives: River Island dress,
New Look sandals, Love Moschino bag

So many people are afraid to wear yellow – why’s that? There are so many gorgeous shades of yellow and therefore at least one for everyone. ;) Just give it a try!

When I saw this dress at H&M (don’t worry, it’s sold out but still available, but you’ll have to check the shop early in the morning – and you can also get it in white!), I was really happy because it looks like → Self Portrait’s “Azaelea” dress, which isn’t available in my size, so this was my chance and I’m so happy that I got it even though it’s pretty pricey for H&M, but it’s worth every penny! Actually, this was also one of my choices for the wedding and I’m sure this would still be a great look if I hadn’t chosen my pink look. ;)

Oh, and – the fuzzy hair is back! It’s been some time since I last wore my hair like that. Now it’s finally long enough to do this kind of hair style, yay! :)
