As I promised you in my last post about the PSFD, here comes my first look with a dress from Paprika. I fell in love with it the second I saw it at the marketplace and had to buy it as soon as I got back home. I actually wanted to shoot it with a hat (you all know me: fall = hat season) but then I liked it even better with that crazy hair style (loads of dry shampoo and hair spray but I haven’t used a curler!).

I also love to be back at wearing overknee boots and got a new pair for this season – bold red ones which I want to wear with the other Paprika dress I bought! ;) Can’t wait to shoot the look! It’s gonna be so cool (at least in my mind). :)

Today’s post could also be named “How to wear your summer dress in winter” – because this is one way to do so. :) Scarlett & Jo’s light and easy pocket dresses aren’t the best choice to wear right now because it’s horribly cold outside (especially when you’re standing on top of a parking lot at the airport – it definitely doubles the cold thanks to the wind!). But there are a few ways to leave your summer dresses in the closet and make them wearable in cold temperatures.

My look adds a warm chunky knit cardigan, warm tights and overknee boots. And for that extra splash of color: my bag love, the fuchsia “Miss Dior” (it always makes me happy when I wear it – also because of the color!), and green earrings, plus some bold make-up. ;)

This time, I was smart enough to get → the dress one size smaller than usual. I’m wearing a UK 14 because I learned that this cut (you already know it from → this dress and also → this one – I just wore them off the shoulder because they were loose enough) is very loose around the bust and since mine isn’t that big, I can size down for a better – the actual – fit. Good idea, because now it really works for me! ;)

I’m a huge “American Horror Story” fan – currently watching season 5 (“Hotel” – and Lady Gaga really deserved that Golden Globe for her role as “The Countess”!) and I love it! My favorite season is “Freak Show” and I’m probably the biggest fan of Jessica Lange as Elsa Mars. These days I was actually pretty sad about the death of David Bowie because I fell in love with → Jessica’s performance of “Heroes” – and the song itself –  on the show.
But for this outfit, I chose season 3, “Coven”, the one about the witches, all dressed up in black for important occasions and looking pretty rad. I kind of mixed the style of the series with that of another one called “Scream Queens”, which, to be honest, I’ve not watched yet but seen a few pictures and kind of liked the styling (that’s where the fuzzy jacket of my look came from). :)

So that’s how my “AHS: Coven meets Scream Queens” look was born. I’m wearing a basic flared dress paired with my Chewbacca (let’s bring in a little Star Wars too!) jacket and overknee boots. For that special touch (you already know I like to make all-black looks more special with an extra something), I finally wore a head wrap again (it’s a huge vintage silk scarf from my mother), my red Gucci bag (with a shortened strap) and added shiny silver details – the belt and my favorite sunnies.
Yes, that’s a very extravagant outfit – and that’s why I love it even more. :) Some time ago I read this quote on Insta: “Dress like you’re already famous!” – my motto for 2016 and the future. :) There’s no reason to hesitate about dressing up whenever I feel like it, and it just reinforces my words from 2015 even more: wear whatever you want, whenever you want!

I asked myself: “What if I was invited to a ‘real’ Fashion Week? What would I wear?” – Paris, New York, Milano,… many options and one answer: this. Not much time ago, one of my favorite fashion bloggers, → Thássia Naves, posted an outfit wearing this cashmere collar from COS, which is actually made to be worn under a top/shirt/sweater/whatever. That’s what I love about fashion: why not change the rules and make your own? She wore it over a shirt and it inspired me to style my own look wearing the collar like this.

It was also about time I got a pair of overknee boots. The last few winters, I didn’t care about buying them, but this time they were just perfect to complete my look. I’m wearing my boots a bit “ruffled” because I like it a bit better than wearing them totally straight. They keep slipping anyways, so I can’t even do anything else. ;)

Blue, black and white – what else is better than combining these colors with some silver details in form of jewelry and bag hardwear. I’m definitely more of a silver person, gold doesn’t match my skin tone that well, so luckily this was just the right choice for completing my look. What do you say? Ready for a Fashion Week? Who knows, maybe I’ll be able to show off my look in one of the big fashion cities one day… ;)
