Christmas is coming! Time for a shiny yet casual look which you can wear for almost every occasion! Less isn’t always more, that’s why I’ve decided to do a glitter all over look for today’s outfit. :)

When I first saw the skirt at the Plus Size Fashion Days, I knew I had to buy it. I’m usually not so much of a glitter girl, but sometimes (especially during the holidays) I somehow turn into someone who needs a bit of sparkling clothes. ;) Well, this time I totally exaggerated – but I love it. :)

I’m so happy to see that → Scarlett & Jo is doing some tops at the moment. They’ve added this → gorgeous lurex tunic to their collection, together with a few simpler tops but also this → utterly beautiful kimono (NEEEEED!). I’ve already received many compliments for this sparkling top and I can definitely recommend it to you, it’s simply perfect – and also looks great with jeans! ;) I’m wearing a UK size 14 (EU size 42), which means a size smaller than usual because it’s just a top, and it fits just right!

Of course I had to do a matching make-up and kind of felt old-school because years ago I was only doing colorful make-ups and now I prefer natural looks, even though I love colors on my eyes. I truly adore these pink and purple shades and they compliment the outfit as best as possible. I even added some loose silver glitter to my lids because here, too, it just couldn’t be enough glitter… ;)

For that special casual touch (and because it was horribly cold and windy when we shot these pictures, even though the sun almost blinded me!), I wore a super chunky knit cardi (one of my best buys ever some years ago).

Boots: C&A
Hat: H&M Divided

Choker: Feathery
In cooperation with Happy Size.

I promised you that there’d be more pants coming after I wore them a lot at the → PSFD. The first look is with my new destroyed jeans from Happy Size. → Claus created a second look for me which I individualized a bit by adding my hat and a choker which gives it that special touch, kinda “Glam Rock”.

It is indeed something different for me, not only because of the pants but especially because of the (fake) leather jacket. I think I last wore a leather jacket in 2007. I never really liked them because I’m not really into that “rock style”, but sometimes it’s good to have someone who makes you try something different. It’s good to leave your comfort zone and you can always make a different styling your own by adding some characteristic details. For me, it’s definitely the hat, the extravagant choker and – of course – the bold lips. And guess what – I’ve already worn the jacket again! ;)

I actually wanted to name this post “Os quindins de yayá” because the whole look reminds me of one of my favorite childhood movies, “The Three Caballeros”, with Donald Duck, José Carioca and Panchito – there’s a scene where they travel to Bahia and meet Aurora Miranda, Carmen Miranda’s younger sister, and → she sings this song called “Os quindins de yayá” wearing a typical look from Bahia. I think my look is a modern and more minimalistic version of it and that’s where the actual idea for today’s post title came from. But I went for “Level 5” cause that’s where we shot the photos and it’s a bit easier and doesn’t need any explanation. ;)

So, I’m back with another head wrap and a Carmen (Miranda, haha!) top, which I wore with a black maxi skirt for a casual and relaxed summer look. And since I’m currently so in love with → Urban Decay’s “XX Vice LTD Reloaded” palette, I did a very special colorful make-up that’s supposed to match the silk scarf turban. Even though I love natural make-ups (well, only talking about the eyes), I’m having fun doing color bombs at the moment – the palette made me do it and I’m actually very happy about this! Somehow I’m going back to the (blog’s) roots, when everything was more experimental and colorful – even though I’m happy that my fashion style changed a lot. ;)

I guess this is more of a pool-party outfit instead of a beach look, but we shot it at the beach, so that’s today’s post title. :)

I was ready for the beach with my new bikini (which I’ll show you in more detail next week!) but had to wear something for the walk there and wanted to wear those sheer beach pants that I bought → last year. I still needed a top and went for another sheer piece – that’s how the look was created. I thought it was funny to bring back the dots of the bikini, so I wrapped the upper part of the bikini bottom over the pants and went for a small dotted scarf around my neck. The hat is a nice accessory but also important when you want to protect your head from the sun. ;) This one is probably not the most beach-like choice but the best one for an all-black look. ;)
