Look who’s back! The extravagant Lu! :) No, seriously, I’m happy to finally show you something more special again!

I wore this fancy dress at the Plus Size Fashion Days after show party – not exactly combined like this because I had to stick to my look from the show (no time for a different make-up afterwards) and I had to wear other shoes cause I knew my feet would be dead after two days in high heels and, to be honest, these aren’t my comfiest heels, even though they’re the most perfect match for the dress.

I ordered this dress via Instagram from Canada and I was actually scared that it wouldn’t arrive in time but I was lucky. The quality could be a little bit better but it’s still a showstopper and I’m glad I bought it. Let’s just hope for another occasion to wear it! :)

This fall, I’m starting a new collaboration with C&A – I can’t wait to show you the whole exciting project which was shot and filmed in Düsseldorf at the end of August. It’s super cool and I’m incredibly proud to be a part of it! I’ll tell you more about it all in an extra blog post as soon as I receive the pictures and videos! :)

I’ll also be showing you a few looks from their plus-size collection through fall and winter and I hope you’re going to love it as much as I do. These looks will definitely be a little bit more casual than usual, since fall and winter are very cozy and comfy and I’m pretty sure you’ll like to see some everyday options, right?

Today, I’m starting with a casual chic style with lots of blue. It’s kind of unusual to see me wearing regular jeans since I usually go for skinny jeans but I like the loose style in combination with the long cardigan and the tunic, which I tucked into the pants cause it would’ve been to much of that “layering style” and therefore not very flattering – even though many people will tell fat women that this is the best way to “conceal” your body, but truth is: you’ll look just way bigger than you are if you just layer loose and mostly oversized shapes! Your body will get lost and hidden and you’ll just look like a sack of clothes. So here’s my tip: there’s nothing wrong with showing your waistline and this is easy to do when wearing pants under a cardi – just tuck your shirt into the pants. I know many are scared to show their belly outline but there’s no need to hide it. It’s just a belly! :)

Something I really like to do is re-style my clothes. I know it’s always more interesting to see new stuff and that’s what fashion bloggers are all about – always showing the latest trends. But I think we should also be role models when it comes to “sustainable clothing”. There’s nothing wrong about wearing something twice or even more often. And it’s fun to challenge your creativity by giving “old” pieces a new look.

It’s been some time since I showed you this dress on the blog (shame on me!), but at least I’m giving you a completely new take on this piece today. And it’s easy to recreate with any dress you already have at home. Just wear a blouse underneath. Nothing new and not a big deal, but it changes the whole look, plus: it’s definitely something you can wear at work. ;)

Here’s the last piece of my little Marina Rinaldi x Stella Jean series on the blog – I promised you a color bomb and there it is! :) This dress is my absolute favorite of the whole collection, it’s just so perfect and beautiful and such a great piece for summer! I love that Frida Kahlo vibe it has and even though it is super colorful, it’s so much fun to over-colorize with accessories, for example with statement sunnies. First, I thought they could be too much, but then I was like “why not?” and actually love the combo (which was much needed because the sun was super bright on that day!). Instead of wearing the obvious red lipstick which I already wore to the Stella Jean FW event in February, I went for pink and also added my pink Dior earrings for that extra dab of color. ;)
