Blooming Spring

(Suomeksi alla)

I’m all about oversized items these days, and since I got this amazing Carmakoma shirt from Evans and these George culottes, I was toying with the idea of pairing them together. I added the heels to the outfit because I think they are the glue to this working, in flats I would just look too frumpy.. basically my legs are way too short for me to use culottes without heels ;).

The floral shirt paired with my new favourite lipstick was a perfect combination to get me in the right mood for spring – bring on the warmth!









Shirt / Paita*: XL, Carmakoma via Evans | Culottes*: 20, George at ASDA (similar) | Shoes / Kengät: New Look (same in burgundy) | Clutch / Laukku*: Biba at House of Fraser (similar) | Necklace / Kaulakoru*: Freedom at Topshop (similar, similar) | Rings / Sormukset*: Freedom at Topshop (similar) | Lipstick / Huulipuna*: Maybelline Color Sensational in 418, Peach Poppy

Ylisuuret vaatteet on tällä hetkellä ihan lemppareitani, kuten varmasti olette huomanneet. Joten heti kun sain tämän Carmakoma-paidan Evans:ilta, niin halusin yhdistää sen näihin George culotteihin. Lisäsin asuun korkeat kengät, ja ne ovat mielestäni juuri se juju joka saa tämän asun toimimaan.. jalkani ovat aivan liian lyhyet käyttämään culotteja ilman korkkareita ;).

Mutta joo, tämä kukkakuosinen paita ja uusi lemppari huulipunani oli täydellinen yhdistelmä saamaan minut kevät-fiiliksille – lisää aurinkoa ja lämpöä kiitos! (Huom. Huulipuna on Maybelline Color Sensational sävy Peach Poppy, jota käsittääkseni ei ole vielä ainakaan julkaistu Suomessa – mutta toivottavasti pian.)

Carmakoma AW15

Since I’ve already posted about Zizzi AW15 and Junarose AW15, it’s only fair that I will ‘complete the Danish series’ and show you a little preview to Carmakoma AW15 too :). Carmakoma is one of my favourite independent plus-size brands. They bring their Scandinavian trendy style with a twist to all of us, and I personally wish that I could afford to buy all of their stuff! Below are some pics that I took a week ago when I went to see their gorgeous AW15 collection, let me know what you think!

Koska postasin jo sekä Zizzin syksystä että Junarosen syksystä, niin on pelkästään reilua, että teen tästä ‘täydellisen Tanska-sarjan’ ja näytän teille esimakua myös Carmakoman tulevasta syksymallistosta :). Carmakoma on ehdottomasti yksi lemppareistani pienempien plussa-merkkejen joukossa. Carmakoman vaatteet ovat skandi-trendikkäitä, ja jos olisin rikas, niin haluaisin ostaa kaiken! Mutta joo, alla on hiukan kuvia heidän loistavasta syysmallistostaan, jonka näin viikko sitten täällä Lontoossa. Mitäpä olette mieltä?

 











Fatshion Faceoff: Colourful blazer

Hello lovelies,

Once again it’s Wednesday, and I’m sure you know it’s Fatshion Faceoff time! If you’re new to the blog, please see here what Fatshion Faceoff is about :). This week’s theme was chosen by Mouna, and she chose a colourful blazer.

I’m sure you know that blazers are the new love of my life, I just can’t have enough of them! And this gorgeous floral one from bonprix definitely needs a new outing at the blog (already posted in here). I wore this outfit on Saturday, when I had a lovely afternoon shopping and having dinner with my flatmate.

Fatshion Faceoff: Red heels

Hello lovelies,

Once again it’s Wednesday, and I’m sure you know it’s Fatshion Faceoff time! If you’re new to the blog, please see here what Fatshion Faceoff is about :). This week’s item was chosen by Dani, and she chose red heels.

I have posted these Yours Clothing heels a few times before, but they never get old to me. I love them and I love how they make my legs look :).

And talking about my legs and Yours Clothing.. they kindly sent me these Lycra Xceptionelle 40 denier 3D tights for a review, and let me tell you.. THEY ARE PERFECT. If you are a follower of this blog you know that I have always struggled with tights, and that so far my best find has been We Love Colors tights. But woohoo, these are way better! I had seen Caroline and Georgina reviewing these tights before I was sent mine, and I was really intrigued, but I still didn’t actually believe that the tights would fit me (as other YC tights I had tried before were waaaaaaaaaay too small for me even in the 30-32 size), and I was also wary because both Caroline and Georgina are hourglass figures and much smaller than me.

These tights are MAGIC though. I was sent my real size, 22-26, and I was sure they wouldn’t fit but they did, perfectly! They have been with me for 3 days now, one of them was the office Christmas party.. and if any state usually breaks tights is the drunken state.. but no. Tights are still holding together, and my thighs haven’t chafed at all. I don’t have anything bad to say about these tights, other than I will lose loads of money because I need to stock up on them! I wholeheartedly recommend these to any plussized girl who is struggling with tights (that’s most of us, eh? haha).

I know the news about the tights is quite exciting, but I assume that you want to see the outfit too though ;)? I wore the heels with lace shirt from Carmakoma and sparkly velvet skirt from New Look Inspire, and added my cutey bracelet for some extra sparkle.

Ok, now I really need to see what kind of red heels the other girls are rocking.. I bet they’re looking hot!
