I welcome spring with a bright red dress – even though the weather outside isn’t that lovely while it was super warm and nice in February when we shot these pictures (actually planned for Valentine’s Day, but due to being at home with my family, I just had no time to post it), today’s a good day to show you this gorgeous dress. :)

It’s currently almost sold out where I originally bought it because it was already on sale in February, but it keeps coming back in a few sizes. Don’t worry, though, this dress is still available in lots of different colors and styles, look:


Good to know
: when I ordered → this Chi Chi dress, I felt like the sizing was not correctly explained at navabi because a UK size 18 is not a EU size 44 but a size 46 – that’s why it was way too big for me (I had ordered a size 46 and ended up with a 48 because of Chi Chi’s weird sizing). Please have that in mind when ordering at navabi. Otherwise, my tip is to stick to the original sizing and always choose your actual UK size (mine is 16, which is a German 44). Plus: I had the feeling that the regular Chi Chi dresses tend to fit small to size while the Chi Chi Curve dresses are actually a bit larger, even though when wearing this red dress (and I chose a UK size 18, means a EU size 46!), I felt like it was way too tight around my bust and the arm holes were too small. That’s why the dress is now a skirt, thanks to my mom. ;) I guess my tips won’t help that much because you’ll definitely have to try the dresses on in order to find your right size. But it may help a little with choosing before ordering. ;)

You already know this look from → my very personal post in collaboration with Dove – if you haven’t read it yet, please do so and you’ll get to know how I get ready plus some stories about blogging. ;)

I wanted to give this outfit an extra post because it’s so cool and already one of my favorites of the year! :) I’m kind of late at the fishnet trend, but at least I didn’t go for the “large fishnet under destroyed jeans” look so I can say that mine is a bit different – I haven’t seen that many colorful fishnet tights or socks under anything, so I’m proud to be showing you something in a bold red. And in order not to look too vulgar (even though I’m wearing a pretty hot catsuit – which I just used as improvised tights – underneath my jumpsuit, haha!), I went for an all-black look around them. Oh, and – of course – a red lace bra for the continuous peek-a-boo red. ;)

You already saw the jumpsuit a few times here on the blog (see below at “style it differently”!) and it’s still my absolute favorite. This time, I pulled up the legs so it looks a bit like a culotte and wore a cardigan over it because of the cold weather and because it simply rounds up the whole look. The (fake) leather details on it make it even more interesting, so this was a great choice. ;)

It’s Christmas week! :) Today and on Friday, I’ll show you my last two looks for Christmas and hopefully inspire you to find your own style for the holidays!

Today’s outfit is all about that vintage flair – with an actual vintage piece I got from my mother – it’s the beaded collar! Instead of wearing a necklace or other statement jewelry, I decided to go for something completely different and I must say that this is the best idea I’ve ever had because the whole look is so special – just because of this detail! Of course, this dress is already an absolute stunner for all festive occasions and actually doesn’t need any accessories (just have a look at the → dress in the online store – and if you order today, with a little bit of luck you can still get the dress or another S&J piece in time for Christmas [but no guarantee from my side]! And P.S.: next Monday, I’ll show you the perfect dress for New Year’s Eve! ;)).

As it is pretty cold outside, I wanted to add a second collar. You’ve already seen this fake fur collar a few times up here and I always find a different way to wear it (you can see the other styles at the end of this post!) – this time, it looks like an open bolero jacket. :) It also rounds up that glamorous touch of the whole look.

By the way (and you’ll definitely notice it when you’re watching the video ;)): → these shoes are too large for my little feet, but they are so great ’cause they have the same color as the dress (well, almost, 99%!), so I wore them for this shoot but I just can’t walk in them properly, so I was thinking about giving them to someone who’ll be able to wear them. They’re a EU37 but they fit more like a 38 or even 39 (and I’m usually a 37.5). So if you fell in love with them, please leave a comment (and don’t forget to type in your e-mail address in the corresponding field or comment with your actual FB account so I can write you) – first come, first serve, and you’ll only have to pay for your preferred shipping. :)

My last look for my Anna Scholz for sheego lookbook is a very elegant and festive one – perfect for Christmas and New Year’s Eve and an opulent party!

I’ve decided to let → the dress speak for itself and not to bring in too many accessories, that’s why I’m only wearing a pair of statement earrings and black suede pumps. I’m not wearing a clutch for the photos, but I think that I’d wear my → chartreuse “Knot Clutch” from Bottega Veneta or even the → golden holographic one from Gucci. Since I don’t own a “neutral” black clutch, only the → Lips Clutch from Lulu Guinness (which is definitely not appropriate for this elegant look because it’s simply too fancy), I guess I’d choose something colorful. But that’s just an idea.

In my opinion, this is the most festive dress of the whole collection, and if you’re still searching for a look for the holidays, you should definitely consider trying this one. I took a size up, a EU 46 instead of my usual 44, because it’s a bit tight. But if you don’t have huge hips and a big butt like me, you can definitely stick to your normal size. ;) After our photo shoot, I noticed that I probably shouldn’t have worn black underwear – now you can see everything through the transparent lace part, but somehow I don’t think it looks so bad (and since I still don’t own a – gosh, it’s just not my year for it! – strapless bra, I just went for the usual stuff plus a shapewear body suit). It even looks interesting somehow. Well, at least I try to tell myself so. ;)

Instead of going for the obvious “red lips and black eye liner” look, I did something more simple yet effective – just a bit of gray and silver eye shadow, a black eye liner and one of my favorite brown-nude lipsticks. The earrings are enough of an eye-catcher around the face – that’s why you don’t have to do a dramatic make-up. ;)
