I’m definitely a spring lover – the weather is just right for me: not too warm, not too cold (even though the majority would say that it’s still too cold for bare legs and sandals). I wish it could be like this the whole year!
On one of the first warm days of the year, I took my chance to step outside in my beloved Chanel pearl sandals and go for a pastel look from head to toe, enjoying the sunshine and beautiful view at our harbor.

I promised you → last time that there would be more outfits with this dress coming – here’s my favorite version, because you can see the dress in full bloom (what a pun, haha!) with not too many accessories (but my favorites!). I don’t think there’s much to say. I’m still very much in love with this dress, it’s just perfect. :)
We also already shot the third look I had planned with it and now I’ll have to be creative again if I want to post more looks with it. ;) Can’t wait!

I found these amazing Céline boots at TK Maxx for only € 191 – they originally cost around € 1200! Isn’t this crazy? I still can’t understand why they landed at TK Maxx or why they were that much cheaper, but since I actually fell in love with the design before I saw the brand (and was extremely surprised when I saw that they’re Céline!), I just smiled and walked straight to the cashier.
These are the softest leather boots ever and I love the bordeaux color, the heel design and – even though I already got a → pair of boots with the same detail – the zipper in front.

I’ve never really shown this blazer on the blog. I still remember the day when I wanted to buy it: I spent almost an hour thinking if I should buy it or not and finally left the store without it – just to send my husband to the store the next day because I couldn’t live without it. And still it’s one of the pieces I almost never wear because I don’t really like blazers on me. For today’s look it was just perfect, even though it doesn’t have the same color as the shoes, but it’s from the same color family (and the difference is only that big in the pictures).
Styling culottes has become one of my favorite occupations because they’re really not that easy to style and look great with when you’re fat. So that’s why I love trying different things with them and showing you my ideas and maybe inspire you to do the same and be creative with your clothes. Because there are no limits, only possibilities!

One of the special details of the look can’t be seen in the pictures (don’t know why the camera hid it): the shirt I’m wearing is semi-transparent and you can see my bra, that’s why I chose a very special one. Maybe you can see it better on your screen, maybe not, but I really liked the idea. Too bad that sometimes reality is a bit different from the photos (like my height, I really don’t know why I always look so tall…).

It’s time for a new culotte on the blog – the denim version! At the Zizzi blogger event in Berlin, we were allowed to pick a few favorites from current and (near future) coming collections – these pants caught my attention instantly and I was lucky to get the only ones in my size. I also brought another pair of jeans home with me because I really love Zizzi’s cut of jeans, they fit me best and are absolutely great.

Now this is my first styling with this special culotte and it’s also one of my favorite outfits ever because I just fell in love with the whole combination of blue, white and red with golden details (French somehow, right?). Hat, bag and boots in black round it off and the make-up is mostly neutral (I really love this lipstick, which I topped with a bit of lip gloss).

Well, that’s what I want to see when I visit a fair for plus-size fashion. I want to see modern stuff, stylish clothes. Things that skinny people would also wear. Clothes for everyone, not for the fat outsider who wants to be hidden in a ochre-colored sack with no real shape. I want something that makes my fashionista heart beat faster, something that makes me want to get creative and play around with it. Something that screams FASHION! and WEAR ME!, something that makes me look amazing and want to step outside and say: “Look at me! I’m fat AND fashionable, fat AND stylish, fat AND beautiful!” – and I’m absolutely allowed to say and feel this, just like everyone else.

So yes, this is a love declaration to Zizzi – because they don’t mean to hide fat people but to make them feel like a part of everything, of fashion and looking great. Thank you for that!
