In cooperation with onchiq.

This week, I’ve got two outfits with a very special background for you – the two dresses you’ll see are from Israel, made by Liron Horwitz, a great designer. Her brand’s name is “onchiq” and this is the → first dress with the lovely name “Kiss”. You can also buy it in black, but I fell in love with the stripes design, so I decided to choose this one, even though I’m a huge lover of “all black”. ;)

The detail I really adore about this dress is the design of the sleeves. I don’t know if this style has a special name, but I wish I could find more dresses with such fancy sleeves! :) Of course, I had to do something special for this amazing dress – so I went for some very different sunnies (love the color effect from green to blue!), a gray hat instead of the obvious black one and – these are obvious – red lips. The belt is also from onchiq and actually part of the “Drama” dress. The “Kiss” dress has a striped belt which also looks amazing with the dress, but sometimes it’s all about contrast, right? And for me, it was easier to wear this dress with a wide belt since the upper part is a tiny bit loose because of my smaller bust, so I could hide the remaining fabric under the belt. I know, that’s not how it’s supposed to be done, but it worked and it didn’t come out while walking around and sitting, so this is definitely an option whenever you have a piece that’s a bit too large – wide belt, tuck in, and you’re good to go. ;)

I can’t wait to show you the second look on Friday – this one’s going to be a total “all black” look and very edgy, but I’m sure you’re going to love it! ;)

It was really hard to find a post title for today’s look. I chose “Broadcast” because I wore this outfit on Monday when I was live on the radio. I did a short interview for WDR Funkhaus Europa and had my own little studio at NDR Hamburg, which was a funny experience because the radio interviews I did before were all on the phone and now I was invited to the studio but it was only for me – yet we were connected through the stations. Unfortunately, it seems there is no podcast, but let me tell you: it’s nothing new. I answered a few questions about me and the blog, plus size in Germany and what’s my wish for the future of all plus-size bloggers here. I still hope the answers were interesting for everyone who didn’t know me and the blog (and our plus-size blogosphere) yet, and if you came here because of the show – welcome! :)

About my look: this dress is officially a → “Curvy Tall” dress from Scarlett & Jo, but since I love midi dresses or even calf-length dresses, I was like “who cares?” and as you can see, the choice wasn’t bad. Usually, when I buy longer dresses, they’re instantly maxi dresses (but with a weird length), and even though this isn’t a problem for me, I sometimes wish I were a bit taller so dresses would have their actual lengths and would look like they’re supposed to. But since I’m so short, this is something I had to learn and I also learned how to cheat – of course, every dress will be a bit longer, but sometimes this can be very cool and look extremely great! Just like this one! Normally, I’d say that especially midi (and longer) dresses work perfectly with high heels, but since I’m a comfy person and like to wear flats, I went for my favorite sandals (gosh, I really hope they’ll never break!) and as you can see – it looks amazing. Even though I’m short. And even if some may think that there’s this rule that short people should try to look as tall as possible by avoiding certain dress and skirt lengths and wearing heels as often as possible, I say: fuck it. You don’t have to please anyone else but yourself. And if you want to wear midis with flats – do it! Your life, your body, your clothes, your rules. Ha!

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! :)
