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! ;)

Almost dark and super rainy – best conditions for a shoot, right? Ha, well, somehow we managed to take the photos despite the bad circumstances and I actually like the grainy look of them…

This is the second look I found at C&A during my shopping day event. The dress is absolutely fab and I loved it from the moment I first saw it. The cardi is also a love-at-first-sight piece – especially because of the color. I definitely love that shade of rust and it goes perfectly with the dark blue.

Overknees are a major thing every fall/winter and → last year, I bought a pair at H&M which has a higher (block) heel. This year, I found these at C&A and love them even more, especially because they’re not that high and still kind of sexy. Still, I must say that I haven’t found THE perfect overknees yet, even though these reach 90%. I haven’t found overknee boots that don’t keep rolling down my knees. I guess that’s somehow a fabric (both of my boots are very soft and elastic) and big-thighs problem. Maybe I need to find some that are firmer. Until then, these are absolutely amazing, I really love them!

When I styled my look in-store, I also wore the hat I’ve already shown you in → my first look, but I decided to wear it without this time – both look great, as you can → see here on Instagram. ;)

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!
