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. ;)

This is a look that I completely planned in my head and really hoped that it’d turn out as amazing as I saw it when putting the pieces together in my mind – and I’d say: yes, it did!

It’s probably one of those looks that you wouldn’t expect from me, but I like to surprise as much as I like to do all those obvious dress looks – not only you but also myself. And I must say that this surprise turned out to be a golden ticket for me: I love this look so much, especially because of those pants! They’re fake leather but so incredibly soft and great to wear – if you’re looking for some perfect quality fake leather pants, you HAVE TO try these. I know they’re pretty expensive, but they’re worth every cent (and also available in black)!

I’m a big fan of how these fall colors work together – we have the brown pants, a greyish white lace blouse, a dark purple and brown jacket and the shoes in a very dark brown shade – and all those colors look absolutely great in combination! I liked the combo so much, I even had to recreate it for my make-up. ;) Love the dramatic look with the smoky eyes and matte lips (for which I mixed three different liquid lipsticks for the perfect shade and some ombré). :)

Alternatives: Darling blazer,
Mango blouse, ASOS skirt,
ASOS Curve skirt, Lost Ink pumps

Well, maybe this is a business look inspiration – maybe not, but it’s definitely something I’d like to wear in an office. Not in mine, though, because at home in front of my computer, I mostly wear my pajamas, haha! ;) That’s why I don’t post so many business looks… ;)

The whole outfit was actually planned in a completely different way – I was supposed to try on the blouse with some short dungarees and my leather jacket. But since the dungarees were sold out, I had another idea up my sleeve – pencil skirt and short blazer! And again – my glasses, because I figured you like them and I want to keep showing them from time to time. A perfect look for all business ladies. ;)

I must say that I’m so happy with each single piece of this look. The blazer was such a lucky buy (it originally costs around €1000 and I got it for €250!) and looks amazing with any more elegant outfit. The skirt is the only pencil skirt ever to work for me and my figure because it’s tight enough around the knees. And the blouse is great because the cut fits (this is a EU 46 and it’s not too loose around the bust but still goes over my hips without any problems, yay!) and it looks so cool – a great basic to own! And yes, the glasses – did I ever tell you their story? I saw a woman on the train wearing them and was completely enchanted until I finally had the guts to ask her where she got them (just a few minutes before she left), and she was so kind as to let me write down the model number. I then found the glasses in Brazil but they were completely overpriced. In the end, I got them online at some no-name glasses store (lucky me – they were no fake).
