Having a little break

I'm taking a little break from the blog. My business (and family) is taking all my time for now, and that's a good thing off course!
But I will not forget about you and I will be back! See you in a few weeks!

Love Els x

Full figured Fashionista's in Grazia

Jeej! Finally I can show you what I've been working on a while ago for dutch Grazia Magazine. My first styling job for a magazine and I must say I'm content. Not sure of my own picture though, but hey, who's complaining?

So, get your own copy of Grazia if you're a dutchy, it's only 1 euro this week! ;-)

New Anna Scholz collection AW 2011-2012

I can not tell you how much I'm in love with these pictures from the lookbook of the new Anna Scholz collection. I want to look like this everyday, including this gorgeous make-up (whithout the fake lashes off course). It's so feminin and stylish. Well done stylist!!

OOTD: The maxi-skirt

A few months ago I was on the hunt for a black maxi-skirt but couldn't find it. So there was only one solution: Do It Yourself! It's as simple as 1, 2, 3 and if I can find a nice fabric in a nude color or in a great print I will make another one.

The week after I finished it I ran into one at H&M BiB. Bought that one as well, just in case...

OOTD: The striped midi-skirt

Midi-skirts are my new favourite addiction. You already saw my purple one here and there's still one to come. Can you guess which color? Just wait and see...

Anyway, I love them because the lenght is right below my (ugly) knees. (Did you ever saw a nice pair of knees? I think they are the strangest things.) And who doesn't love vertical stripes? They slim you down instantly!

Excuse my milky white legs, didn't have time for my fake tan! Tip: wear sunglasses when reading this ;-)

Inspiration: Crystal Renn

I know the book is in store for a while now but I got my hands on a copy just a few weeks ago. Think I finished it in 3 days and I must say I loved it! Crystal talks about her eating disorder, the model industry and how she discovered along the way what was healthy for her body and realy tries to listen to what her body needs. 
I know many people thinks she's getting thinner and thinner and that she is no plussize model anymore but she still is an inspiration to me and I must say that she takes a pretty damn good picture!

OOTD: I love color!

I just love color but I never wear it like this. I must say, it's way out of my comfort zone but sometimes you have try something different. With all the color blocking going on lately I simply had to see for myself if this is working for me. Must say that I love it in the pictures but still feel it's a bit too much. What's your opinion? Do you follow the color blocking trend?
