Here we go – time for the first “real” outfit of the new year! I’ve saved this dress for a special post because it’s so amazing! When the Kenzo x H&M collection was launched, I was pretty sad that there were only the usual “small” sizes available – but there were a few oversized pieces which could definitely been bought and worn by plus-sized women. Like this dress! This is a EU size 40 and still huge enough for me to wear it like it’s supposed to be worn – oversized. It’s also my favorite print of the collection and I love the combination with black.

While I usually love wearing figure-hugging clothes or add a belt to make them look like it, this time, I felt like wearing a belt would ruin the whole look (even though it’s kind of cool too), so I went for the original style and yes, I love it. I feel like as a plus-sized woman people will keep saying that wearing something oversized isn’t flattering, while they’ll also scream when you can see my body (happens all the time…). So there’s no way to please everyone – and it shouldn’t be your primary mission when dressing. So here’s a resolution for the new year: if you like it – wear it. Nothing new on this blog, but I feel like I can’t say it often enough – and I want you all to promise me that you’ll stick to this resolution! Stop wearing stuff recommended by people who don’t even know you (uh, magazines – forget them!) just to please them. Stop wearing stuff that you think will make people stop thinking badly of you when you don’t even like the clothes. If you feel like wearing something that draws attention to you – wear it! If you feel like wearing something oversized that will make you look huge – wear it! If you feel like wearing something that will show every little chubby part of your body – wear it! It’s your choice – never forget this! ♥

Coat: Murek Hamburg
Sweater: Doris Streich
Lace Blouse: Marina Rinaldi
Jeans: sheego
Boots: C&A
Bag: Dior “Lady Dior”
Earrings: Chanel
Alternatives: Miss Selfridge blouse,
ASOS boots

And here’s another new friend – the amazing jeans from sheego I wore on the catwalk at the → Plus Size Fashion Days! These pants are SO amazing, I was absolutely stunned when I put them on for the first time. I usually wouldn’t choose the biker style for myself, but I kind of liked it when I “had” to wear it and got used to it. ;) I actually wanted to buy these jeans in blue too, but they were sold out, so now I’m hoping that they come back so I can get another pair. ;)

These are petite length, which means: perfect for me, as I’m only 5’3” – I’m always happy when I find brands who do shorter lengths because that’s always a minus when I finally find a good pair of jeans or pants in general.

You may remember that in April, I went to the → blogger event at the Murek Hamburg headquarters (P.S.: they’ve got an online shop now!) and we got to choose our favorite pieces from the fall/winter collection. This coat is one of three gorgeous jackets I chose and it was also a bloggers’ favorite. I guess we all put it on our wish list. :)

Coat: Marina Rinaldi (vintage)
Body: H&M Trend
Skirt: A Leap of Style
Ankle Boots: Casadei
Hat: H&M Divided
Earrings: Chanel
Bracelet: Hermès
Alternatives: ASOS body,
Sam Edelman boots (sale!), ASOS boots,
Boohoo boots (sale!), ASOS hat

And we’re back with another gorgeous skirt! This is a very special piece from a lovely person named Karissa which took a loooong time to finally reach me – but that’s okay, good things always take a little longer (and it was an exception because the actual fabric – turquoise and pink – got lost on its way to Karissa and I had to choose another one), right? You can find her clothes on → etsy.
I guess I have to stop talking about my passionate love for African prints, I don’t want to bore you, so all I want to say is that this skirt is won-der-ful! Karissa was so kind to make it as a custom order for me, since she actually makes a dress out of that fabric but I wanted a skirt. :) It fits like a glove and is perfectly finished.

Of course, such an amazing skirt needs a great frame, that’s why I chose some basics in off-white and black, plus some very special killer ankle boots from Casadei, which are thrifted (but were almost unworn) and were on sale – one of my → lucky shoe sale finds. ;) These boots are incredibly comfy, even though they’re extremely high (but that’s a great bonus for dwarfy me), and don’t they just look amazeballs?
