Miss Plus Size Fashion 2011

Yesterday I went to the Miss Plus Size Fashion pageant 2011. 
It was superfun, saw a lot of other bloggers and took a lot of pictures. I wanted to show you all the dresses so be prepared for an overload of pics!! My favourite ones were the strapless aubergine dress, the hot pink one with the drapey front, the blue one with the lace arms and the leopard one worn by Jagaira. All dresses were provided by Super Size Fashion. Super gorgeous!
Jagaira, winner of 2010, ended the show colombian style, she sure can move those curves girls!

Anyway, Simone won this competition and I want to congratulate her with her new title as Miss Plus Size Fashion 2011. I hope you have a superfun year with lots of opportunities and show all plus size girls out there that you can be gorgeous and show off those curves!

Outfit of the day: H&M Inclusive

Oh yes! Finally I got to make a new outfit of the day post for you. And lucky for me, yesterday I received my dress from the H&M Inclusive line. I was a bit frightened that the dress was too short for me but hey, I think I can get away with it. Maybe because it's so wide underneath, it makes your legs look a bit thinner. Anyway I think it's a great dress, thick fabric en beautifully made with a lime green lining. I can always wear my petticoat underneath for days when I'm not that self assured ;-)

New in town: Zizzi

Sorry for the lack of posts, but I've been on a holiday and I'm so busy working lately that I almost have no time left for blogging. Anyway, here's another post for you.

I recently discovered a new brand, Zizzi. It's a danish label and they use an interesting color scheme. Lots of nude and earthy tones. I tried on a nice top in a pink color, very gourgeous but it was too big and it was the only size left. You should definately take a look at their website. I really like the magazine where they give you tips how to dress for your bodytype and give you styling tips.

Check out the website for availability, I know the Netherlands is not listed but I discovered Zizzi at Eigenwijs.

Shopping stuff

Yesterday I went on a little shopping trip. I had my eyes on a fake leather jacket at H&M BiB and after seeing Chiara in an outfit with a simular jacket and a flower skirt I knew I had to have a fitting session. On the hanger it looks a bit boring but on my body it's perfect!

The white blouse (H&M BiB) is perfect for my white gypsy maxi skirt and I think I will style it with the camel belt and golden accessoiries and camel shoes or boots. I bought it 2 sizes bigger so it will be a loose fit.

Some accessoiries: all H&M except the brushes, they are by Gosh and it's real hair en they feel great! The bunny ring is so cute that I bought one for my daughter as well.

Belts: the small one is by M&S en goes around me twice and the other one is a real leather one by H&M BiB.

Hope you like it!

Some inspiration

I have a crush on maxidresses and the colours on this one is just amazing! (foto by

Gossip is my newest purchase on iTunes. I bought the album "Music for Men" and pre-ordered the new solo album by Beth Ditto which will be released march 4th. I love the smokey eyes in this pic.

I love the contrast in this outfit, the lovely skirt and the rough biker jacket (foto by

Love the colour combination in this one (foto by

Have to get me a tutu like this some day. 
Does anyone know where I can get one?
Three foto's above: love the shoes and the colour blocking. 
First two are Prada. I think the heel of the red shoe is just gourgeous (Gucci)! (foto's by

Here's the new Beth Ditto song and video for you to enjoy ;-)
