Retro look in godet plus size midi skirt

Retro look in godet plus size midi skirt

I have noticed that mid skirts can be sort of polemic in the plus size wardrobe. Some people appear to think to be looking bigger when wearing the skirt model. Ok, I can see where it comes from, but, then again, what increases volume is a diet not clothes, right? hehehe. Also, who would not pick a favorite piece for being afraid of looking bigger or something?

Real empowerment is to feel entitled to wear what you like and better suits you, according to your standards, this is key!

Here you can see two of my favorite looks wearing midi skirt. A retro look here and a funky modern look here.

 

The skirt in the picture is from H&M’s regular collection. It is important to keep eyes open for other collections and not only look for coool stuff in the plus size areas. As we well know, the coolest stuff are unfortunately not there all the time.

But mostly, whats really important is to be comfortable wearing what you choose. And to choose carefully when it comes to a more conscious consumption in fashion. I mean, all the time we are exposed to shopping inputs, like you may be now with my post. The difference is that the idea here is to present an outfit a bit more out of the box, making new usages for old pieces, like the layering collar top I have over the lurex top. It’s been here and used a lot but I preffer it as an overall than inside another top.

Anyways, message is: keep your eyes open, buy conciously and wear what you like and how you like.

Outfit Details: 

Lurex blue top and lace “overall” (really need help with the ame for this piece): both from Zizzi

Skirt & necklace H&M

New collection: Zizzi Spring Summer

New collection: Zizzi Spring Summer

As I posted some days ago, Zizzi is lauching its new spring summer collection. And for that I cannot wait. Soon in stores, the collection brings floral prints, lace, a lot of cool denim. Expect to mix paterns and prints to create unique and fresh looks.

I was invited by Zizzi to pick my favorite pieces of the collection to shoot an international editorial, nowhere else than in Rio. How cool? Yes, right?

I created looks that I am digging entirely. What I like better in the collection? It is how they manage to cover so many styles (plus size dresses, plus size classy tops, plus size cool clothes) in one season. Here the second part of my favorite pieces. In case you missed the first part, simply click here and check it out.

The pieces will be available in stores and online from march. Get prepared to go crazy.

Here you find a list of Zizzi shops and this is their danish webshop and you can also shop Zizzi online at Navabi, they ship to several locations.

Cool combo. Denim jacket, simple and classy white crepe top and lacey candy blue skirt.

I do like to mix textures in the same look.

Zizzi summer 2016: editorial in Rio part 1

Zizzi is soon lauching its summer collection How exciting? It is the season we all wait for. More colors, prints, and all that happy vibe around the clothes. Yes, we love summer. And to celebrate the launch, Zizzi invited me to pick my likes of the collection and to make this editorial in Rio. Yaaaaas! Should I have said yes or of course? ahahaha

The clothes are really beautiful. Variety of materials and prints, ranging from delicate flowers to polka dots. In this first selection I present you you, you can see two of the dresses I think are the most beautiful in the collection for my style and the gorgeous top with two layers, paired with a cute buttom-up like denim skirt.

The three looks fit several styles and ocasions, making your wardroe fresher and cooler for the long summer days we have been longing for so much.

The pieces will be available in stores and online from march. Get prepared to go crazy. Soon, the second part of this editorial I shot in Rio.

Here you find a list of Zizzi shops and this is their danish webshop and you can also shop Zizzi online at Navabi, they ship to several locations.

 

The photoshoot:

As you may have noticed, I was born in Rio and moved to Oslo couple of years ago. That may tell you something about my love for my hometown. Me and the nice people I work with at Zizzi thoight it would be a great idea to shoot their summer collection in Rio. Nothing wrong with summer clothes and Rio, right?

So as I produced it myself, I started scouting location first on my mind then going to the places. Based on the clothes and on the variety of scenarios, I picked Parque das Ruinas. Unique among the city’s many vantage points, this Park of Ruins is located a top a hill in the Santa Teresa district, next to Museu da Chácara do Céu, used to be an opulent residence built by homeopathy trailblazer and politician Joaquim Murtinho (1848-1911) and inherited by his niece, Laurinda Santos Lobo, who was known as the hostess of one of the most coveted salons, or social gatherings, of her time. The view from the city is the main highlight of the area. A real must go.

Then I worked with one of my favorite fashion photographer, Vitor Fernandes. He has a colorful and happy eye over fashion and I like that he is fresh and relaxed. The results always have a happy vibe in the pictures, reflecting my personality and the clothes I am wearing.
