I must confess I can get a little too excited when I see cool plus size pieces available in high street brands. It must be because for so long I have felt neglected by so many brands. For countless times I have felt like there was something wrong with me because I wanted to wear a certain piece but they did not have my size. It still happens every now and then.
But the truth is nowadays there is much more availability for large sizes in high street fashion. It is still far from the ideal – and by “ideal” I mean cool, affordable designs, sustainable fashion and opportunities for all. But I got to say I love to see Lindex, for instance, providing fashion in more sizes, for a reasonable price and quality.
When I saw the colour of this dress I was just eager to check if my size was there. Guess what? They had my XL and it went up to XX. I tried it on and voilà, it had to be mine.
After I took the pictures I realised that maybe not everybody would like the shape because it is a bit loose and it may make me look a bit bigger. But girl, come on, what makes us look big is food not clothes ahhahahahaha.
But then again, isn’t that another type of beauty standard? Why should plus size ladies only wear curves flattering clothes? I can easily say that somehow I am also affected by this type of standard. I love myself a bodycon piece that shows the would how beautiful my body is. But most of all, I am a fan of wearing what I like, how I like, when I like. And this dress I love.
Dress and jacket from Lindex. Earrings were custom made for me in Brazil. Hermes bracelet, alliances and Bjørg rings.
This patched army green dress is one of the most trendy yet classic pieces of the season. You can wear it in so many ways. It is one gem to keep in the closet. Fabric, fit, design, I love all about it. Check it out and get the look here!
Zizzi just dropped in stores some really cool pieces in this bold and a-m-a-z-i-n-g print. Get it here.
Black background, big flowers and bright colours. It is spring breeze over the corner. This exclusive print from Zizzi just won my heart and I have been wearing it (too) often. But can you blame me? I love spring and while nature does not bring it on, I pull it with my style.
The print comes also in a beautiful top that can be a good option for working wear for instance. If you are not feeling that bold, no problem, just grab your jeans and pair with the top, voilà! Here you go:
I love this tunic dress. The outfit just totally matched my first trial of wearing a lace wig. It is a way of getting a new hair so fast
Fashion trends are super inspiring and we were lucky enough to travel to Berlin with Zizzi to check out their new tremds and be part of the beautiful set up they arranged for the public during Panorama fashion fair. See here pictures, trends and backstage images. The brand ambassadors wore the newest pieces Zizzi just dropped in stores and here I got you shortcuts to get the look for you. You are welcome
I have a real love for versatile clothes. The ones you can dress up and dress down, that you can create several styles with and mostly, fit all body types. And a tunic dress delivers! I got a new one and there are already some plans for it. Let me tell you.
