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!

Alternatives: Windsor Smith sandals,

You can’t imagine how excited I was when I saw this dress on Instagram – I was so happy to finally find a dress that looked like the (reverse) design of my Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses’ box, which I totally love. When I bought the sunnies, the beautiful box made me so happy that it got a special place at home where I can always see it (by the way: I’m really talking about a box, not only this sunglasses case I’m using as a clutch in these pictures – but it has the same design). What I wanted to do ever since was wear a dress with the same print, together with these amazing sunnies. But only D&G had a collection with this print and we all know that there’s no chance for me to ever fit into one of their dresses, unless they do a plus-size line. ;)

Anyways: there was this afternoon when I was browsing through my Insta feed and spotted this Lindy Bop dress. I went to their online shop and ordered within a few seconds, not even thinking twice. And here we are: isn’t it perfect? I’m SO in love with it!

I wanted to create a very lady-like look with this dress, kind of 50s chic. I guess this blazer was the perfect choice because looking at the photos I feel a little “royal”, haha! ;) Of course, for fall season, I had to choose a hat that matches the whole look. And the nude sandals are my favorite souvenir from Brazil, they’re so perfect and go with almost everything, just like this outfit. I hope you like it as much as I do! :)

I asked myself: “What if I was invited to a ‘real’ Fashion Week? What would I wear?” – Paris, New York, Milano,… many options and one answer: this. Not much time ago, one of my favorite fashion bloggers, → Thássia Naves, posted an outfit wearing this cashmere collar from COS, which is actually made to be worn under a top/shirt/sweater/whatever. That’s what I love about fashion: why not change the rules and make your own? She wore it over a shirt and it inspired me to style my own look wearing the collar like this.

It was also about time I got a pair of overknee boots. The last few winters, I didn’t care about buying them, but this time they were just perfect to complete my look. I’m wearing my boots a bit “ruffled” because I like it a bit better than wearing them totally straight. They keep slipping anyways, so I can’t even do anything else. ;)

Blue, black and white – what else is better than combining these colors with some silver details in form of jewelry and bag hardwear. I’m definitely more of a silver person, gold doesn’t match my skin tone that well, so luckily this was just the right choice for completing my look. What do you say? Ready for a Fashion Week? Who knows, maybe I’ll be able to show off my look in one of the big fashion cities one day… ;)

Alternatives: Wolf & Whistle swimsuit,

From all those beach wear pieces I’ve shown you in the last weeks, this swimsuit is my absolute favorite. I’ve never seen such a gorgeous piece and even though I’ve warred with myself for some time (especially because of the price), I had no chance and had to order it. “Just to prove that it won’t fit! As every designer piece! I’ll definitely send it back!”, were my words. Until it arrived. And fitted perfectly. And that’s when our fate and love was sealed. I kept it, obviously.

So in order to make this dreamy swimsuit all justice, I went for the most perfect beach look I could create (well, in my opinion). I bought some transparent beach pants for my vacation and the walk to the beach (imagine me working the “calçadão” from Ipanema to the song “Girl from Ipanema”, haha!), and of course had to try some looks before flying away. Now, I’m hopefully sitting at the beach while this blog post goes online – maybe also wearing this look, enjoying the Brazilian sun. :)
