I found these gorgeous photo's on the internet. They were published in the UK Vogue in the december issue 2010. I think it's a fabulous way to translate the star signs into fashion. Very nice!

Webshop: Monsoon




























I recently discovered this UK webshop called Monsoon. And oh my god! What a nice stuff they have... too bad though they are not delivering in Holland at the moment but you can find out here if they do deliver in your country.
Anyway, I found some great stuff so I wanted to share my picks with you. Most of the clothing is up to UK size 22 and they have some nice home decorating stuff (even wallpaper) as well. See for yourself!
My favourite is the tunic with the blue and pink print. I need that one asap!! So Monsoon: please send it over to Holland, it's just across the pond ;-)

Inspiring Adèle


This week I got the new album by Adèle, 21. Since then I listen to it almost non-stop. I love Adèle, what a voice, what a style and what a beautiful person!
So today a tribute to Adèle. Listen to Someone like you, my favorite song on the album. I made a selfportret, with hair and make-up like Adèle. I think I keep it like this for now... I must say I like it, hope you like it too.



So I heard she's looking for a house in Holland. So Adèle, if you read this: I don't mind if you're going to live in my street. I think we would make really good girlfriends ;-)

Here some random pictures of Adèle I picked up on the internet. Her style is such an inspiration for me. The first two are pictures of her when she performed on The Voice of Holland. A bit blurry but I hope you get the idea! That dress was so amazing! I was told it's made by Janice and it's his new spring collection 2011. I certainly will go on a hunt for that dress!!




























Have a nice sunday!

Inclusive line by H&M









































This spring H&M gives us a new collection filled with feminine and colourfull dresses,skirts, tops, cardigans and even lingerie in fifties style. I guess they got inspired by Mad Men just like Prada and Louis Vuitton did for their fall collections off 2010. The fitfties is known for feminine clothing and fits like a glove on curvy women.So lucky for us curvy girls the collection will be available in sizes 32-54 and will be sold only online from early March. I think it's absolutely gorgeous, if only they were a little bit longer. Anyway, I can't wait and I hope to get my hands on one of the dresses!!

Outfit of the day: So boho!

I think this is by far my favorite outfit this winter and maybe it's my favorite dress of all times! I love the colours, the pattern, the fabric... it's almost perfection! It would be totally perfect if it was just 10 cm longer so I could wear it with tights. But I think the trousers underneath look good as well. It gives it just that hint of boho that I like so much. Maybe you have seen the back of the dress in another picture already? I worn it to the castingday of Miss Plus Size 2011. See here
I tried to straighten my hair but after a while it just starts to curl again! It just don't wanna be tamed ;-)

Outfit of the day: Striped!


Today I went for my striped maxi-dress. Maybe you recognize it, it's of the summer collection by H&M 2010. I bought the black one as well. The fabric is really see-through so it makes a nice undergarment. Together with a black blazer and some tight I guess it's winterproof!

Mad about Christina!

It just fell on my doormat, the new Red Magazine (dutch version) of februari. Beautiful Christina Hendricks is on the cover and she talks about her breakthrough, figure and what keeps her going. I'm happy Mad Men season 4 starts again in march! Can't wait!

Maybe you have noticed, I have a new Lay-out. It's more in style of my website of Jouw Stijl. Hope you like it. Something else: I have some problems with Bloglovin. One way or the other my blog does not update anymore so I try to make a new feed. So I hope you will follow me there again...

Some shopping stuff & Anna Scholz






Al een hele tijd had ik mijn zinnen gezet op een jurk van Anna Scholz. Ik vind haar een fantastische ontwerper. Haar ontwerpen zijn echt gemaakt voor een curvy lichaam en ze doen je dan ook alle eer aan. Helaas zijn ze ook nogal prijzig voor mij maar daar heeft ze ook al wat aan gedaan in haar Black Label en in de uitverkoop is dat zeker te doen. En dus wachtte ik mijn kans af. Afgelopen week ben ik dus naar Mateloos in Amsterdam geweest (bijna alles 50% en er hing nog veel!) en heb mijn droomjurk kunnen scoren. Hier alvast een preview maar ik beloof nog een outfit post, coming soon! Ik kocht ook nog een gilet met bling van Veto en in een heel andere winkel weer een mini-poncho van Pieces met een geinige bloem voorop. En ik hou van bloemen!!
En om even bij Anna Scholz te blijven ook nog wat foto's van de nieuwe White Label SS2011 collectie. Oh wat prachtig weer... ik ga meteen weer sparen!

Nog even wat anders: ik vertelde jullie deze week over Curve Appeal en dat ik een foto had ingestuurd. En wat zag ik vanochtend via Bloglovin voorbij komen? Moi! Op Curve Appeal!!

Fijn weekend allemaal! 


For a long time now I had my hopes on a Anna Scholz dress. I think she is a great designer. Her design are really cut for a curvy body and they give it all credits they deserve. Unfortenately it's a bit pricey for me but she already covered that with her Black Label and when sales are on I hope I can get some coming my way. So I went to Mateloos in Amsterdam this week (almost everything is 50% off en there was choice enough) to score my dream dress. Here's a preview and I promise an outfit post coming up soon! I also bought a gilet with bling by Veto and in another store a mini-poncho by Pieces with a flower in front. And I love flowers!
And to continue on Anna Scholz I have some pictures for you off the new White Label SS2011 collection. Again so beautiful... I'm going to save up some money!

Something else: I told you this week about Curve Appeal and that I entered a photo. And what did I see this morning on Bloglovin? Moi! On Curve Appeal!!

Have a nice weekend you all!
