Outfit ♥ Winter blossom



Yoek invited me, and a bunch of other bloggers, to a bloggers challenge. What would be our favorite Yoek item of this season? Off course I wanted to be part of this. Yoek is a dutch plussize designer brand and they make clothing which are cut for a curvy body. They have made their mark as a plussize label (celebrating their 30th anniversary this year!) and are known for their prints, use of color and quality fabrics. Feminin is their keyword and that's mine as well :) 
I chose this stunner of a dress with chinese cherry blossom print on a black background. So beautiful! I saw this print earlier this year when I visited their showroom and fell in love with it instantly. It's a crossover dress with an extra bit of cloth at the front which falls down into a pleat. The fabric is from a quality stretch material which flows nicely and hugs my curves just right. Nice detail: the gold clip in the front. I paired it with overknee boots (wide fit!) and my new green trenchcoat which is a great addition to my coat collection (and warm I might add!). The length is just perfect for all my dresses.

I'm curious, what would you choose from the Yoek webshop? Let me know below in the comments!

Yoek vroeg mij, en een aantal andere bloggers, of ik mee wilde doen aan een blogger challenge: wat zou onze keus zijn uit hun webshop? Daar heb ik natuurlijk geen nee tegen gezegd want Yoek is een mooi label. Dit Nederlandse plussize label timmert al jaren aan de weg (ze vieren dit jaar hun 30 jarige bestaan!) om ons curvy dames mooi te kleden. Yoek staat bekend om hun mooie prints, levendige kleuren, prachtige stoffen en niet te vergeten goede pasvorm. Vrouwelijk is het motto en laat dat nou net in mijn straatje passen :)
Ik koos deze pracht van een jurk met chinese bloesemprint op een zwarte ondergrond. Zo mooi! Ik zag deze print eerder dit jaar tijdens een bezoek aan de showroom en was al meteen verkocht. Het is een overslagmodel met aan de voorzijde een flap die naar beneden hangt. Het materiaal is van een mooie stretch stof die mijn curves op precies de goede manier volgt. Mooi detail: de gouden clip bij de taille. Ik stijlde het met overknee boots (wijde pasvorm!) en mijn nieuwe groene jas in trenchmodel. Een goede aanwinst voor mijn jassencollectie door de lengte (perfect voor al mijn jurkjes) en bovendien lekker warm! 

Ik ben benieuwd: wat zou jij kiezen uit de Yoek webshop? Laat het me hieronder weten...

Series ♥ Fashion Twins E&E: the almost white dress

We are wearing: Dress c/o Asos Curve
Boots Edith Marina Rinaldi | Shoes Els H&M

Do you remember 'Same style, different body shape'? Edith Dohmen from the blog Stylehasnosize and I have made new series of FASHIONTWINS. Another photographer, another style.

FASHIONTWINS E&E
We have a lot of things in common: we are both fashionstylists, graphic designers and fashion bloggers (we even drive the same car). The name FASHIONTWINS is born! But different about us is our body types, size and style. To show you, how these same pieces look like on different body’s we started this series. And we looooove size diversity!

Fashion is fun!
Fashion is fun and we show how it looks on different body types. I am 1.73 and wear a size 48-50 EU, 18-20 US. Edith is a bit taller than me, 1.81, and wears a size 44-46 EU, 14-16 US. 

Asos send us this almost white dress, in fact it's very light grey. The cut is very nice with a wrap front, belt and turtle neck. Here I'm wearing it with bare arms and legs but to make it wearable for winter I would pare it with a blazer or long cardigan, tights and thigh high boots.

So tell me, will you where almost white in wintertime?

This was the last one in this new series. Hope you liked it (Edith and I certainly did!) and maybe we will see you next time!

Today we rock the 70's flair jeans but styled in a modern way. This jeans gives you a great shape and especially if you are pear shaped. It balances out your hips in the best way. On the leg this jeans is skinny en just at your knees it flares out so you keep your shape. I have to wear heels under these kind of pants otherwise I become too square. Edith has longer and skinnier legs so she can get away with flats. This MS Mode jeans is very stretchy and it wears great. If you like this jeans I suggest you click on the link in the credits above because it's on sale now! You can easily size this jeans down 1 size because it's so stretchy. I styled it with a romantic top but you can see that you can style this any way you want, just like skinny jeans. 

So tell me, will you rock the flared jeans too?

Hope you liked this one! See you next week for the last fashion twin outfit, same time, same place, different outfit!

Outfit ♥ On one casual afternoon...

 Joggers, t-shirt and cardigan c/o Maite Kelly by Bonprix | Shoes Newlook


A few weeks ago Bonprix asked me if I wanted to review something from their new Maite Kelly Collection. I vaguely heard of this plus size label and I think it was a nice opportunity to try some of this. I chose a really casual set, just to try something completely different and before the holiday season starts. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived because the label is very budget proof and I expected some cheaper materials. But none of this! The cardigan is right up my alley with this graphic print and it's a very cosy yet fashionable cotton piece and rather thick so it's really comfy. It's a bit longer in the back and it even has pockets. The joggers are very comfortable as well and to keep it feminine I styled it with a pair of heels which go great I think with these joggers. The shirt has a nice cleavage detail with a mesh insert and will be nice on a pair of jeans with a blazer as well.

So what do you think of this very casual outfit and how would you style it?


--------

Een aantal weken geleden vroeg Bonprix me of ik wat van de Maite Kelly Collectie wilde reviewen. Ik had vaag van het label gehoord dus ik vond meteen mooie gelegenheid eens wat te proberen. Ik koos een heerlijke casual set, gewoon omdat dat ook wel eens fijn is en ook voordat al het feestgeweld losbarst met kerst en oud en nieuw. Ik was verrast toen mijn pakket binnenkwam omdat het een best budgetvriendelijk label is dacht ik dat de kwaliteit ook minder zou zijn, maar nee. Het vest is met zijn grafische print helemaal in mijn straatje. Het is van een mooie zware katoenen kwaliteit, achter iets langer en het heeft zakken. De joggers zijn heerlijk comfortabel en om het vrouwelijk te houden draag ik er graag een paar hakken onder. Het shirt heeft een mooi detail in het decolleté met een mesh inzet. Ik denk dat het shirt het ook geweldig doet op een jeans met een blazertje. 

Wat vind je van deze casual outfit en hoe zou jij het dragen?

Series ♥ Fashiontwins E&E: The color combination

We are wearing:

This week not the same piece of clothing but a color combination. How chique does burgundy and gray look together? Edith is wearing the palazzo pant and I'm wearing a pant which is a bit baggy on top and skinny on the leg. I bought it on sale last year for only €10,- (and it's such a nice pant to wear). The bib collar I'm wearing is a great invention, you can wear this under dresses, sweaters, or anywhere you want a collar on. Perfect to turn your look around in a second. This one is from Erfo which is a plus size label but you can find these bib collars in a lot of different variations from other non-plus labels as well because it's almost sizeless. You can also use an old shirt or shirt that doesn't fit and cut it off to a bib. A simple DIY ;)

So tell me, is burgundy and grey a color combination for you as well?

Hope you liked this one! See you next week, same time, same place, different outfit!

Outfit ♥ I spy a little fly

Coat Thrifted | Dress Asos Curve | Boots New Look | Broche Vintage


You know my love for the wiggle dress, I confess... I have a little addiction to them. This yellow number I had to try on, I wasn't sure I could get away with such a color but it sure photographs well and I must say it's not bad... not bad at all! It's described as mustard but in my opinion it's more ochre yellow, a lovely warm tone. This dress loves my curves and that's why I like these types of dresses so much. The coat is a real treasure from the thriftshop. I was jumping for joy when I found out it fits me. Wool, nice details and great fit. I paid 17 euro's for it. Yes! Detail: I almost paid the same amount for the dry cleaner ;) Oh and did you spy my little fly ;)

Have a great weekend loves!

------------

Je weet vast wel dat ik een liefde heb voor wiggle dresses. Ik geef toe... het is een echte verslaving. Deze gele beauty moest ik proberen, ik was niet zeker of ik weg zou komen met deze kleur maar ik moet zeggen dat ze zeer fotogeniek is... niet slecht... helemaal niet slecht! In de webshop is deze kleur als mosterd omschreven maar ik vind het meer een okergeel, een mooie warme tint. Deze jurk houdt van mijn curves en daarom ben ik gek op dit soort jurken. De jas is een echte vondst van de kringloop. Ik sprong een gaatje in de lucht toen hij ook nog eens bleek te passen! Wol, mooie details en perfecte snit. Ik betaalde er 17 euro voor. Yes! Detail: Ik betaalde bijna evenveel voor de stomerij;) Oh en heb je mijn vlieg al gespot?

Fijn weekend loves!

Love Els ♥

Just after my summer holidays this suède skirt popped up in the Asos Curve section. I immediately liked the look of it. It's described as a 70's skirt but as you can see you can style it any way you want. The color looks difficult to match with other colors but in fact is not. Style it with greens, dark blue, black&white, burgundy... This pencil skirt is perfect for almost any figure and the real plus on suède is that it hides lumps and bumps. 

Tell me, how would you style this suède skirt?

Hope you liked this one! See you next week, same time, same place, different outfit!
