One of my classics here on the blog is “all black”. I love completely black outfits, they’re simply amazing. But I truly love colors too and that’s why today I’ll give you a color bomb in “all purple” (yes, I know, the shades of purple aren’t completely identical, but I think that that’s exactly what makes the whole look interesting!).

This is yet another → dress from Scarlett & Jo that’s just perfect for showing your curves and making them look even curvier! ;) And it has the most beautiful cleavage ever! Especially if you have a bit more bust than me – there was some space left to be filled, but even a push-up was no help for me, so… Anyways, it fits true to size and I’m wearing my usual UK 16 (let’s just say that’s my S&J size, there are only a few dresses for which I need to go up a size).

As a short person, I’m happy to announce that there’s a new range at Scarlett & Jo – it’s called → “Curvy Petite” and is specially made for tiny people like me (I’m 1.60 m/5’3”).

One of the new pieces is → this gorgeous red dress and all I can say is that a red dress is always a good choice, especially when it has such lovely details like the neckline and the sheer dotted sleeves. It’s a bit shorter to work with short people’s heights, so it actually fits like it’s supposed to fit and not midi instead of mini. Even though I’ve really become a midi lover, it’s nice to wear a short dress and this one is definitely a stunner. It features S&J’s typical bodycon details – a thick fabric and ruffles in the front, both for a very flattering look that enhances your curves and shows your body in the best possible way.
Last time I wore a red dress from Scarlett & Jo, → I went for beige heels (which I still think were a great choice, even though they’re not the obvious one and I heard some people say that they looks awkward), this time I went for classic black and I think that both is good. :) I’m still looking for my perfect pair of red heels, though – not easy to find some that I really like!

Dress: Marina Rinaldi
Belt: Ted Baker “Julo”

Dune heels, Becksondergaard hat,
ASOS earrings

“When life gives you lemons,…” print them on a dress and wear it! ;) At least that’s what came into my mind when I saw this dress and I’d like to believe that this is exactly what Marina Rinaldi did. :)
The first time I saw a lemon print on a dress was at Dolce & Gabbana and I was really enchanted, but I had to choose and went for the → “Poppies & Daisies” dress. Since then, I’ve seen these fruits on many other dresses of numerous brands and I think it might be one of the big summer trends this year. Good thing I found this blouse dress which is rather minimalistic (no greens in this pattern) and so easy to wear! It just needed an underdress because it’s slightly transparent – I chose a white one, but I think one in your own skin color or even a yellow one would be a lovely choice too!

After last week’s → casual chic style, this is yet another one that’s mixed – but this time I went for a casual hat instead of shoes (just because the “Rockstuds” are – again! – a perfect match to the dress, I mean, if there’s white and black, they are destined to be worn with it, right?). This dress can definitely be styled both ways too, casually (maybe also with the flatforms) or chicly (just leave the straw hat), so you have all possibilities. :) It’s also very light and comfy – a great companion for summer. :)

Blazer: Murek Hamburg
Jumpsuit: Beth Ditto “Modern Love”
High Heels: YSL “Tribute”

Yes, you already know this outfit – somehow. Because it was my choice for one set of photos at the → Murek Hamburg blogger event. ;) But since I really fell in love with it, I wanted to do an extra shoot for the blog – so you can see all details. I changed my shoes and the earrings (I mixed two of the “Mise en Dior” earrings for the complete silver look!), but the rest is completely identical to the first pictures.

I didn’t really know Murek until I visited them for the event and now I’m kind of obsessed with their jackets because they really know how to cut them properly and – that’s why I’m truly in love with them – they know how to do a good length for the sleeves. I could usually hide another half arm (at least another hand) in every jacket sleeve, but this one (and the ones that I chose for fall/winter – I hope they arrive sooooon!) has the perfect length for me, even though it’s still a tiny bit too long, but I don’t think that this is something bad. I like it like that.

Anyways, this is another style with my jumpsuit love from Beth Ditto. Next time you’ll see it without a jacket, promise! It’s just that it looks amazing with any blazer, jacket or bolero! ;)
