Sure, this outfit isn’t very summery (especially not on these hot days), but it’s definitely worth posting already – so you can still get it with 25% off and get ready for fall. ;) But of course, this is a super classic look, “all black” just how I love it. I even went so far and created a matching make-up by doing smoky eyes and wearing an almost black lipstick. The → “Tal” dress is truly a special piece with a very different cut. I first thought about wearing it with a belt, simply because I like to show my waist, but honestly: this ruins the dress. So if you’re thinking about buying it (and you should!), don’t even think about adding a belt because this dress needs to be worn just like this! That’s what the dress is about and how it looks best. :)

Since my head always looks a bit too small when I wear loose clothes, I went for a hat. This is something I actually have to do so I don’t look distorted. ;) But as I love hats, this isn’t a problem for me – and I think that it rounds off the look perfectly. Also, I went for boots because I felt that delicate sandals or elegant heels just wouldn’t work with the dress. It needs something more rough and bold and so I chose these classic black boots. Do I have to say more? Just in case (and cause I forgot it last time): I’m wearing a size 2 here and the → “Kiss” dress was a size 3 (probably, a 2 would have been better for my small bust, but the 3 was the best choice for my large hips). The fabrics aren’t stretchy, so if you want them to fit, use the measurement chart on the page and check which size will be best for you. ;) And now we’ll let the photos speak for themselves – and don’t forget to watch the video! ;)

I don’t think that this post needs a lot of explanation – you all know me already, I can’t say no to a classic LBD. Black dresses are the best choice for any occasion and work for every style. Whether you want to look casual or elegant, a little black dress is always right. Yet I still prefer the chic version when I wear them and this one is a pretty classy little number. Isn’t the neckline absolutely amazing? I love the detail with the black stripe between the sheer dotted net. Only one thing is important: you’ll need a strapless bra underneath. Since I haven’t found one yet (still searching, I think this search will be never-ending, ugh!), I simply went for a funny alternative: I’m wearing a strapless bikini bra underneath (→ this one). I mean, that doesn’t make me the MacGyver of fashion, but it was a good idea because I didn’t want to wear the dress without something underneath and this was the only thing I could come up with. Well – at least you can’t see any straps and that’s what’s important to me. ;)

I’m actually not the biggest fan of the classic leopard print (you know, the brown one), but when it is a colorful one and/or abstract, I can’t resist. Also, since I love green (I think it is my favorite color, even though I like them all!), this dress was love at first sight. As always, I found it at TK maxx, so it’s last season, but if you have a look at eBay, I’ve seen it there! ;)

As you can see, the look is pretty basic – dress, belt, high heels, but I wanted something special and there’s nothing better than a special make-up! :) I tried to do a green-to-black eye liner and I’m happy with the result. I used Givenchy’s waterproof khôl in “jade” and my currently favorite black felt tip liner from Eyeko. And for that special twist, I went for a bold dark pink lipstick.

I also hope you all like the video – I think it’s one of my favorites! :)

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).
