Junarose: February #1

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

(Suomeksi kuvien alla)

Hello my lovelies,

As you probably know, I’m one of the blogger ambassadors for the Danish brand Junarose (more about it in this post), and as a part of that I get to pick a few items from them every month. In February I went for the Five jeans in yellow, Lucky long tank top in black, and Bobbie tube maxi dress in black. This post features the jeans and the top, dress coming in a later post.

I wanted to try the Five jeans, and picked this yellow pair up from sale. I admit, I still don’t wear jeans a lot, but still I have to say that Junarose does make the best jeans for my body type. I have now tried 5 different styles of Junarose jeans and jeggings, and all of those 5 are better for me than any other brand! It is hard to do jeans for plus-size, and so far Junarose are doing it very well.

This basic tank top has been on my wishlist for ages. It is lovely and soft, and perfect to wear with jeans, when other tops might be too short. I think I need it in few other colours too!

I teamed them up with a varsity sweater, holographic clutch, pointy flats and a floral necklace for a casual look with girly details. And I haven’t worn my hair loose in ages, feels all funny :). Talking about my hair.. I really want a dip dye/ombré again, it’s been ages!

Sweater / College-paita: 24, New Look Inspire (similar, similar) | Top / Toppi*: XXL, Junarose | Jeans / Farkut*: 26, Junarose | Shoes / Kengät: Next (similar) | Clutch / Laukku: Dorothy Perkins (black holographic clutch, similar) | Necklace / Kaulakoru: Primark (similar) | Glasses / Rillit: Select Specs | Lips / Huulet: Maybelline Baby Lips Electro in Oh! Orange!


Niinkuin varmaan jo tiedätte, olen yksi tanskalaisen Junarosen bloggeri-lähettiläistä (lisätietoa englanniksi tässä postauksessa), ja osana tätä ohjelmaa saan joka kuukausi valita pari tuotetta heiltä. Helmikuussa valitsin keltaiset Five-farkutmustan, pitkän Lucky-topin, ja mustan Bobbie-maxi mekon. Tämän postauksen asussa on farkut ja toppi, mekon postaan myöhemmin.

Halusin kokeilla Five-farkkuja, ja valitsin alesta tämän keltaisen parin. Täytyy myöntää, että en edelleenkään farkkuja kauheasti käytä, mutta silti sanon, että Junarose tekee kyllä kroppamallilleni parhaat farkut. Olen nyt kokeillut viittä eri Junarose-farkkumallia, ja kaikki viisi ovat paremmin istuvia kuin minkään muun merkin! Plussakokoisia farkkuja on vaikea tehdä, mutta tähän mennessä Junarose on kyllä oikeilla linjoilla.

Tätä pitkää perustoppia olen himoinnut jo vaikka kuinka kauan. Toppi on pehmeä ja mukava, ja mulle pituutensa takia ihan täydellinen käytettäväksi farkkujen kanssa. Musta tuntuu, että haluan tämän muissakin väreissä!

Farkkujen ja topin kavereiksi valitsin asuun varsity-collegen, hologrammi-laukun, suippokärkiset kengät ja kukka-kaulakorun. Perusasu tyttömäisillä lisukkeilla siis :). Ja siis en ole pitkään aikaan pitänyt hiuksia auki, tuntuu ihan kummalta! Hiuksista puheenollen.. Hirveesti himottaisi taas värjätä latvat vaaleimmiksi, edellisestä kerrasta on jo parisen vuotta!

OOTD: A splash of red

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey lovelies, I received href="http://panache-ä"
target="_blank">a BEAUTIFUL bra from href=""
target="_blank">Panache a couple of weeks ago, and I
wanted to build an outfit around it. I think this is the first time
I wanted to do this.. base an outfit around a bra! It was just so
amazing, that how could I not to. It’s not easy showing your
décolletage during winter, firstly because it’s cold, and secondly,
I really don’t like when it’s windy and I have a lot of skin
showing. BUT thankfully sheer tops are a big thing right now, and I
guess if you’re a regular reader you’ve seen that I’m obsessed with
them ;). I went with this cream sheer top, so that the vivid red of
the bra shows through – I love a bit of accent colour during
winter! OOTD: A splash of red src=""

And the bra itself? I
love it! I got the same size that I was fitted in href=""
target="_blank">Panache Andorra, which is 38H, and it
fits me perfectly. It gives me lift and support, and looks
beautiful! Masquerade Rosetti in<br />

sheer tops? Are you a fan of Panache lingerie?

SS13: Next

Tags: , , ,

Hi my lovelies,

I was happy to be invited to the Next SS13 pressday a couple of weeks ago, and I can tell you that they have amazing stuff coming for next season. The shoes, bags and jewellery were to die for!

Looking awesome, right? Sadly there was no plus size items on show, so I emailed Next and asked to see some product images to show you all. I received them last week and was positively surprised. (The model pictures unfortunately are main range sized, but no worries, I was assured that these same items will be available in plus range!)

I seriously want that sweater in every colour, and the last dress is DIVINE. What do you all think? Will you be shopping at Next next season?

Ways to Wear Challenge: LBD

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Hi my lovelies,

This is the first post of a new challenge that I’m taking part in. The lovely Gemma of Big Girls Browse started Ways to Wear challenge, that any blogger can take part of. (Please see more in this Gemma’s post.)

The first monthly challenge is a Little Black Dress. Now, I have *counts* at least 5 dresses that fall into this category, and I have posted all of them here before, 3 of them quite recently (sequins, bodycon and lace).. so I had a bit of a dilemma. I decided to go with the dress I modeled at Plus North, since I never did a proper outfit post of it. This dress is absolutely lovely, the PU-detail is gorgeous, and I think this is a dress that would look amazing on anyone!

I decided to team it up with nude heels, minimal make-up (light pink lipstick & mascara) and effortless hair, only that I could bring some roughness to it with the spiked bracelet and clutch. So a classic look with some edgy twists, I hope ;)

Dress*: 22, Simply Be (similar without the PU panel) | Heels: Primark (similar at New Look, similar at Zappos – US) | Clutch*: Next (similar at Top Shop) | Bracelet: Forever 21 – gift from Dani (similar at Boutine, similar in silver at Oasap) | Lippy: Natural Collection Moisture Shine in Pink Mallow – available in Boots (similar by MAC)

Do you have many LBD’s in your closet? Do you wear them often? Oh, and if you are a blogger, you should take part in this challenge too, would be great to see many different looks :)!
