Just like I explained in my last outfit post, fashion allows us to be who we want, and we can make a new decision every time we’re in front of our closet. ;) So last time, I wanted to wear a very tight and colorful dress – this time, I went for a very classic and sophisticated look, including a new piece in my jewelry collection: my first Chanel brooch! :) I actually wanted to shoot this outfit earlier, but when I finally had some luck at the store (every time I went there, they didn’t have any at all, but last time there were about 12 different brooches!), I instantly knew that this was exactly that last detail to complete this look. :)

People always say that fat girls can’t wear (horizontal) stripes – why’s that? I love stripes and I don’t care if they make me look fatter than I already am. That’s another thing about fashion that people need to start to understand: fashion is not about making you look thinner. Fashion is about the freedom I mentioned in my last post, the freedom to wear whatever I like, whatever pleases my own taste. And if someone else doesn’t like it – hell, I don’t give a single f***. And neither should you. ;)

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! :)
