This autumn, with the “Fall Fashion Heroes” campaign, Lindex integrates larger sizes in all its fashion concepts. Now most of the pieces are offered in sizes up to 54. Their Generous concept, their former plus size line, is no longer available then.
It means Lindex is ahead in the curve of fashion and society development by taking the initiative of more inclusion and diversity. Among a few friends I raised the discussion in order to hear some opinions and it was said that to size up to 54 is not to go plus size at all, but I partly disagree.
It is already September but luckily it seems like summer is still around. The sun shines above us and the bright nights are still inspiring. In nights like those, it feels just right to grab a romantic dress and go on a date with friends or that special friend. And I did that. But, in the specific night of the picture, I headed to a very special occasion: the première of Masterchef Norge’s new season.
To start this post, I must tell you that I have been lucky and a very unusual pregnant lady. And it is likely that it shows in the way I have been dressing in the last nine months.
Having found out about my baby boy when I was already 28 weeks far (yes, around 5-6 months – details here) may have influenced the way I have been dressing. Luckily I haven’t changed my style as it is part of me and who I am. Let’s keep this idea in mind, right?
The bardot neck dresses seem to have been a hit. In warmer days they are everywhere, proving how democratic it can be. Flattering and delicate, this neckline just makes everything a bit more fun.
And River Island just hit the spot with this floral max dress with a beautiful and feminine bardot neckline. So lightweight and elegant, #Icanteven
In the chillier afternoons in scandinavian summer, when all these colors are so appreciated, this outfit feels just right for almost any occasion. The layering details made the look more fun and edgy.
River Island has a pretty good selection of cool plus size styles. Quality and fit are good and prices affordable. So I could say they have been in my top 5 favorite brands.

A totally independent editorial photographed by Brazilian upcoming plus size photographer Adriana Líbini styled by me, with my own clothes. Architecture and curves in the best São Paulo vibe.
It has been a while I have been observing Adriana Líbini’s projects. I have always thought of working together with her but I guess we have never been physically in the same place and time.
But during my last trip to Brazil I thought it would be the best opportunity to work with her. Also I have observed that Adriana’s project have grown and developed in a more refined way. Then it was the right time for us to partner.
Briefing was simple: to explore lines and shapes from modern architecture in São Paulo, I would style and do the beauty and she would make her magic with the cameras. The idea was to work together and have some portfolio for both of us.
Adriana is a very committed photographer who does understands the angles of the plus size body. She owns great equipment and is very easy to work with.
I do suggest her commissioned work for commercial and private jobs in Brazil ou abroad.
Now, the images.

Zizzi’s summer collection is available in stores and online now and I must say; it will be hard to pick just a few styles.
The pieces I have seen so far are more colorful than usual, with cool prints and good fit. I’ve been to one of Zizzi shops in Oslo and picked the styles I liked better and were available in my size. Yes, people are going for the coolest pieces so, girl, you better run!
