I guess nobody here knows about my weird obsession with Finland. I fell in love with the country when I was about 14 years old – because of the band Rasmus. I listened to their songs every day, knew all of them by heart (a few even still today!) and was pretty sure that one day, I’d marry the lead singer (instead, I named a cute little cat Lauri). I’ve never been there yet (shame on me – anybody who wants to go with me?), but when I was young, I owned the Finnish flag and it hung on the wall in my room, I had ICQ friends from Finland who had to send me Finnish stuff and I even tried to learn the language, but all I can say now is that I’m not feeling very well (“minulla on huono olo” – at least that’s what I learned). And there are even more crazy stories I won’t tell now. ;) Good thing I have a lovely friend, → Hanna, who’s Finnish and helped me with today’s blog post title. ;) And who made it happen that I can show you a Finnish outfit today – from the brand “Excuse My BonBon”. :)

This is actually a tunic but as we all know by now, for your favorite Human McNugget they’re always dresses (even though they’re mostly pretty short, but that’s why I wear something opaque underneath). Even though I haven’t posted it on the blog yet, I’ve already worn it a few times, for example at my → C&A shopping day event (with leggings and biker boots) or → at the Vollkommen.Braut. store opening (with a pencil skirt). Even though it has a very delicate print, this is a versatile piece which can be worn for many different occasions – from casual to chic. For today’s look, I just went for a basic look with knee-high boots and a small patent belt, combined with my lovely “Dionysus” bag and a very natural make-up look, using different shades of brown and beige. P.S.: I’m wearing size 44/46 and the fit is perfect. No need to size up or down, no matter how you’re planning on wearing the tunic. :)

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).
