Seems like this is my first fall look of the year (even though I still hope that the sun won’t be gone as soon as expected so I can still wear a handful of summer outfits I couldn’t wear when I was sick in bed…)! And I wore it for a great occasion! As you all know, I was in Milan from Friday to Saturday last week with Marina Rinaldi for a special event. The capsule collection in cooperation with Stella Jean was presented on Friday evening and I was invited to come and have a look together with → Callie Thorpe and → Hayley Hasselhoff. But first, we had a delicious lunch and visited Marina Rinaldi’s flagship store in the heart of Milan for a styling session. It was super fun to try on a few of their stylist’s suggestions at the store and pick out some favorite pieces like the dress I’m showing you today (and which is part of the current collaboration with Tsumori Chisato). I guess we’ll receive the photos soon and I will show them to you in one of my next posts.

In the evening we finally got to see the presentation, which was absolutely stunning. The location was as artful as the collection and definitely the highlight of the day. Afterwards we had the most delicious Italian dinner at LARTE with the Marina Rinaldi team – the day was amazing and I really want to say thanks to everyone again. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you. ♥

The outfit I chose for the day is kind of casual chic and has this cool twist with the socks. I know they’re not everyone’s favorite, as I already found out on my social media channels, but I think that they’re exactly what makes the outfit an outfit. Of course, the look is nice without socks too – but with socks, it’s my kind of fashion. ;) It was fun to wear this look in Milan, I also had the feeling that I was photographed a few times on the streets and at the event, and yes, this makes me kind of proud. ;) It was also super exciting to see this absolutely fashionable city during Fashion Week. So many stylish people walking around – I kind of miss this here in Germany. We totally need a bit of that “Dolce Vita” feeling. ;)

I promised you → last time that there would be more outfits with this dress coming – here’s my favorite version, because you can see the dress in full bloom (what a pun, haha!) with not too many accessories (but my favorites!). I don’t think there’s much to say. I’m still very much in love with this dress, it’s just perfect. :)
We also already shot the third look I had planned with it and now I’ll have to be creative again if I want to post more looks with it. ;) Can’t wait!

Dress: Scarlett & Jo
Belt: Zara
Pumps: LaStrada
Headband: Zara
Bracelet: Swarovski
Alternatives: Club L Plus dress,
New Look belt, Faith pumps,
ASOS pumps, Designsix headband,
Ted Baker bracelet

I love surprise packages – especially when there’s something so beautiful inside! :)

Scarlett & Jo, one of my favorite plus-size brands, finally has its own online shop and I’m proud to present one of their gorgeous dresses today. :)

It’s also one of my Christmas outfit ideas – I guess velvet is one of the most Christmassy fabrics ever and red (in this case, it’s a magenta red which sometimes looks more pink or more purple, depending on the light) is also a great color for that special time of the year. :)

This dress is incredibly perfect – the color, the cut (love the fishtail hem!), the sweetheart neckline, the quality,… everything! It’s very formfitting, so I’d recommend wearing some Spanx underneath for a smooth silhouette, but the small ruffles in front conceal your little Christmas roast belly, so no worries. ;)

For my personal touch, I wore it with an old belt from Zara, matching my headband. I felt like a princess during our shoot and to be honest: it’s just that little bit of sparkling that makes the outfit complete. Even though the dress is already beautiful without any extras. ;)

Petticoat: COS
Belt: Zara
Pumps: LaStrada

Ring: YSL Arty Ring

Sometimes it has to be extra-girly – that’s just what I thought when persona by Marina Rinaldi surprised me with this shirt. I’ve been positing many rather unusual looks the last few weeks (and I love it!) and there’s been a lot of swimwear, so why not try something classy and elegant again? :) My petticoat skirt is one of my favorites in my closet, but unfortunately it never had a great cut because of the non-stretchy fabric at the waist. But somehow I always managed to wear it without any problems (like → here, → here and → here). ;)

So today’s look is a little more sophisticated and somehow ladylike, but still fun and girly thanks to the skirt and playful details like the belt and the pink lipstick. ;)
