My second outfit shoot with Katharina brings you this unusual combination! :) And even though it’s something new for me, I enjoy wearing it so much! I’ve worn it a lot because of my closet problem, sometimes exchanged the black shirt with a white t-shirt for an even more casual style, but this is my favorite combo – because I love the mix of super sexy with that cleavage and the casual look with jeans and sneakers. The kimono gives it that last fashionable touch and makes the whole outfit very special and I’m so glad I bought it cause it’s exactly the showstopper I needed in my life. :) Plus: who says, short people can’t wear long jackets? It had to be shortened, though. Haha!

You may have noticed that Katharina’s photos look a little bit different. This is because she’s a professional photographer and uses Photoshop (which I don’t even own and therefore never use!). I asked her to go slow with the retouching but, of course, I didn’t want her to lose her own style of working on the pictures. So this is just a little reminder that you might notice a difference. ;)

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!
