Short!

Short!

Lace shorts seem to be this summer’s darling. It is so feminine and trendy. It can be dressed up or down, worn with a tee or a blazer. So versitile. In this outfit, I gave it a bit of a glam and made a summer night outfit that became my own darling. Check this out.

I must say: I have never been a fan of shorts in general. Maybe because I never found one that made me feel comfy and not bothered by the fabric rolling up between my tights. Can’t think of anything more annoying than this.

But then I wore this model from Zizzi. The fabric is so soft, so comfy. Although it still rolls a bit up when I walk, I dont feel it as a big deal and would probably solve it by simply wearing a shapewear underneath.

The medium lengh makes it classy, not too short so you can pretty much wear it anywhere in the summer. 

I chose to keep it glam. A V neck top with drape details and an oversized blazer perfectly paired the shorts. A statement necklace drw the attention to my upper body balancing the bare legs. I like the effect. High chunky heels gave me extra confidence not only because it elongated my legs but also because it is more comfy to walk. 

What is glamour without comfort anyways?

So just go for shorts if you like them. If they roll up you try to fix it with a shapewear or just roll it down when needed. Create a comfy look that pleases you and enjoy the feeling of a breeze in your legs. I would suggest a glass of chablis – my fav white wine. :-)

Ok! I am crazy for dresses, you got me. I have a clear preference for them, specially when they can be used in different outfits without getting me bored after a while. When a dress fits my curves and allows me to continuously wear it without seeming too last season, I tend to overcare for it. :-) And this one here is a strong candidate. And a must have piece for full figured ladies like me. It is such a good one that I even made a Style Video to share some ideas on how to pump this babe up. Check out this post.

Lace is one of the most feminine fabrics I know of. It is delicate, lighweight and super sexy. Also versatile. Can be worn in different outfits and styles, from the romantic to the rock n’roll looks. In this post I wear bodycon lace dress that has been in my closet for a while but not discuvered, until recently, as a winner that it is. Plus, shapes and ideas for adapting pieces you already got without having to go broke in the next season.

This is one inspiring scenario. Beautiful after beach chill, romantic sunset with hubby and champagne in my glass. Just sounds like paradise and it did felt like it. This lace dress felt like the one and only outfit I could be wearing. And thta’s funny since it has been in my closet for couple of months with the tag on and jst waiting for its turn.

I got it in one of my jobs early this year in Brazil. It was part of my picks for the summer and style tips for the biggest plus suze fashion retailer in the country – Faminga. We called the job “As escolhas de Gisella”) something like Gisella’s choices and it was a huge success. This dress is from the brazilian plus size brand Mari Malpighi.

I really like this dress. It has all the elements that make a good piece in the plus size closet: the 3/4 sleeves, moderate transparency, bodycon shape that loosens a bit from the hips down, open neckline, it just works. For this summer afternoon I chose to wear it just simply, with vlack & golden flats and a vintage purse.

But I still think it can be pimped up and that’s when the magic happens. For my scandinavian summer, starting now, I will rock this dress with a black silk little dress underneath and a blazer or a leather jacket over. Will probably pick an akle boot to pair with, making it a seventies/boho look which I love.

Sometimes you just don’t need to buy new things beore rying different possibilities with what is already there for you. New seasons bring new trands but they are just a fad in a way. Style stays. So, try to adapt more instead of being fooled by the industry all the time. Nothing wrong with getting new clothes, it is just that you also have to see out of the box when you open your wardrobe right?

So check out the look I chose to wear in one of the days of the event. Just love it.
