It seems like spring is finally here! Still a bit cold but we’re getting close to sunshiny days and dips in the pool, right? :) But I’m more than ready for outfits without actually still needing a coat and warm boots after the shoot. This one still needed a jacket afterwards, but I went out like this and felt like there was only some ice cream missing in the pictures. ;)

Culottes are something I’ve already shown you a few times and people either love them or hate them. I totally understand why, but there’s actually no kind of pants that’s more comfy and yes, I think they’re pretty cool and can make an outfit a “look”. ;) That’s why I chose them for this look instead of regular skinny jeans. They’d be totally awesome too, but the culottes make it more special. ;)

I also love the sweater and – of course – my slippers from Brazil. I love the brand Arezzo, they have amazing and comfy shoes and if you ever are in Brazil, you have to visit one of the stores. So I finally jumped on the slipper wagon and tried these shoes for the first time, and even though I was pretty sure that they wouldn’t really match my style (and my height), I like them very much and they’re great to wear. I think now I know why everybody’s wearing the Gucci slippers and kind of would like to own a pair by myself… we’ll see! ;)

I welcome spring with a bright red dress – even though the weather outside isn’t that lovely while it was super warm and nice in February when we shot these pictures (actually planned for Valentine’s Day, but due to being at home with my family, I just had no time to post it), today’s a good day to show you this gorgeous dress. :)

It’s currently almost sold out where I originally bought it because it was already on sale in February, but it keeps coming back in a few sizes. Don’t worry, though, this dress is still available in lots of different colors and styles, look:


Good to know
: when I ordered → this Chi Chi dress, I felt like the sizing was not correctly explained at navabi because a UK size 18 is not a EU size 44 but a size 46 – that’s why it was way too big for me (I had ordered a size 46 and ended up with a 48 because of Chi Chi’s weird sizing). Please have that in mind when ordering at navabi. Otherwise, my tip is to stick to the original sizing and always choose your actual UK size (mine is 16, which is a German 44). Plus: I had the feeling that the regular Chi Chi dresses tend to fit small to size while the Chi Chi Curve dresses are actually a bit larger, even though when wearing this red dress (and I chose a UK size 18, means a EU size 46!), I felt like it was way too tight around my bust and the arm holes were too small. That’s why the dress is now a skirt, thanks to my mom. ;) I guess my tips won’t help that much because you’ll definitely have to try the dresses on in order to find your right size. But it may help a little with choosing before ordering. ;)

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. :)

It’s finally time for a new Anna Scholz for sheego lookbook on the blog again! As every season (find all previous posts → here), I’ve teamed up with sheego for a small lookbook with my three  favorite pieces of the collection (which is already available!).

My favorite number one must be the highlight dress of the latest collection – a gorgeous → wrap dress with a kaleidoscopic butterfly print. When I was at the “Panorama” fair with sheego in January, Anna Scholz herself wore the dress and it instantly became a must-have piece for me, so that’s my first choice to show you.

It is very easy to style this dress, since it doesn’t need too many accessories – it shines by itself. But I still wanted to give it all a special touch, that’s why I chose some red splashes of color to compliment the bold print. ;) I’m wearing a EU size 46 but I’m pretty sure a 44 would also work (could be a tiny bit too tight around my hips, that’s why I went for the 46). Depending on your body shape, it’s up to you to decide when you’re in between two sizes. Just have a look at your body and decide whether you need a tighter or looser fit.
