That personal touch

This just arrived from Big on Fashion, a dutch plus size webshop. They carry the labels Carmakoma, Veto, Replace, Zhenzi, Yppig and Deluca.
I snatched this ome from their sales because I was instantly in love with the color they call 'paprika'. What it is? Well, you have to wait and see... oufit shots coming soon!

There was a personal note  from Big on Fashion that came with the package, I was pleasantly surprised!
For those who don't understand dutch, it says: Dear Els, hope you enjoy your purchase!

OOTD: The leopard dress

First of all, thanks for all the lovely comments here on blogger, facebook and twitter on my 'come back'. It means a lot to me.

The other day I told you all about the Curves on the Catwalk event and that I wore a leopard Anna Scholz dress. So here it is! The dress is such a beauty that it deserved a blogpost on it's own to shine in the spotlights!

The material is silk (of course) and I don't have to tell you that it feels supergreat on your skin. The print is not too small, not too big. It's just perfect. And the colors, oh the colors... I think they suit me just fine.

I never thought I'd wear a dress completely in a print like this. You have to be extra carefull with that when you're a blond... well, I'm no blond anymore, I got back to being a redhead again and I like it!

Maybe next time I style it with leatherlook leggings and a pair of black anckle boots. That might work as well.

So what about you? Do you dare to wear a bold print like this?

Curves on the Catwalk!

Yesterday I went to the Curves on the Catwalk event in Amsterdam. A high end fashion show filled with beautiful curved models and gorgeous clothes. This was an initiative by Edith Domen (Style has no Size) and she collaborated with some nice labels like Anna Scholz, Carmakoma and Sallie Sahne. This is some of their winter collection 2012/2013.
I'm so proud of Edith and all the models and everyone that worked behind the scenes. They did a great job and I was so happy to see that curves can be fashionable! Loved the colors, a bit of a 50's vibe and of course the Anna Scholz designs. Anna herself was also present and I got to talk to her: what a lovely woman! She said I had great taste, of course, since I was wearing her leopard dress!

Here is a little report by Edith herself, you can also watch it on her site as well. It's in dutch but even if you don't understand it, you sure can catch the fashion vibe. Have fun!

I'm baaaaack!!!

Yes! I'm back, finally. Did you miss me?
It was supposed to be a little break but I was so busy doing a whole lot of other stuff that I forgot all about the blog. When I posted a picture that I somehow forgot to post in my facebook album, I received so much positive reactions that I realized I mist my blog! So here it is. My first OOTD in ages!!

This is an outfit is scored during sales at H&M. I think I paid no more than 45 euro's for it, and that's including the shoes! I almost felt guilty leaving the store.

The leggings are very soft, so soft I never want to take them off. The dress is sleeveless and great to combine with cardigans or blazers. Love the detail in the front, it hides my tummy. I can also wear this dress chique with tights and pumps.

Hope you have a nice weekend, talk to you soon!
