Ich hätte heulen können: es passt nicht, bzw. es steht mit nicht. Und das wegen der figurschmeichelnden Nähte. Mit E-Cup und drunter läuft die obere Naht am Taillenband auch nicht mehr quer über den Busen. Tja, bei mir halt schon. Durch meine grosse Oberweite ist auch die Taille zusätzlich noch zu hoch. Gnaaah! Dabei ist das Kleid ein Traum. Der Ausschnitt ist ein Hingucker und doch nicht riesig. Der Tellerrock ist ein „full circle“ – ein Vollkreis.

Shopping: Little Black Dresses to Go

It is a true classic and comes in many forms: the little black dress. Hope you are not yawning yet, but it is ever so versatile and useful. You can easily go from work to play. Change a few accessories to dress it up or down. Go from „no frills“ to glam in less than five minutes. Chose the right material and it happily travels with you wrinkle-free in either backpack or trolley. It is like having an ace up your sleeve. So today I picked a few inexpensive dresses from ASOS Curve.

Work to Play

This one is my favourite of the lot, though personally I prefer dresses to be longer. But I am involved in (local) politics and occasionally that includes debate rounds on stages. So I find myself sitting between chair or table level above the audience. Quite often it is just a bunch of seats, without a covered table in front of you. Trust me, you want to concentrate on what you say, not if anyone can look up your skirt! Still, that dress is a super cute basic. It’ll show your curves without showing any cleavage. Dress it down with a denim jacket and some low chucks or ballet flats. Glam it up with killer heels, a clutch and some seamed tights.

The wrap dress is another classic and flatters most shapes. For a professional look I’d put a top, cami or t-shirt underneath. Dress it down with a happy scarf and flats. You can wear boots and a floppy hat with it for a boho look or a statement necklace and some killer heels to impress.

Rather too low cut for work, but still great to show of your curves. Put a crisp shirt underneath and you’ll look very professional with a whiff of sexy secretary. Not a bad look, eh? In summer wear it with big glasses, a straw tote and some flip flops and people will struggle to believe that is the very same dress.

Off Work

The Bardot dress is not something I’d wear to work, and I even wear my kitten dresses there! Has something to do with off shoulder. However it is a super cute black dress that’ll take you from shopping to cocktails no matter if you are sightseeing or staying locally. Wear it to a BBQ or a picnic with friends with flats or dress it up for a date.

The last one is a stunner. There are places where you could wear it to work. The creative sector comes to my mind. Although in landscape architecture that would be very overdressed. I’d happily wear it to an opening of an exhibition with some coloured and/or patterned tights. Possibly with an assortment of smaller vintage brooches or a bigger one. It is at home with Sunday brunches and cocktails, art house cinema, that kind of thing. I like the artsy vibe and the rather severe cut. It’ll show off your curves, but not flash your boobs. You can show off a bit of leg, so I’d not wear it with anything lower than a kittenheel.

Shopping with Miss Kittenheel: Spring Dresses

Hello lovlies,

I discovered a few pretty, shiny dresses I’d love to share:

Voodoo Vixen’S Connie Dress in red with a retrolicious cat eye glasses pattern. Ca. 90 EUR, excl. shipping. I got a similar style in pink with cats, which will be featured soon! Get it quick, these go fast especially in the largest size. Do a site search for Voodoo Vixen at Simply Be, they got more!

Cute as hell is the Beatrice Dress from Boden. Become the apple of everyone’s eyes! Sold out in a generous EU48 on the German site, but still available on the UK (they also ship abroad), ca. 120 EUR.

„Apple“ Dress

And another one I find most adorable and have been wondering if I should get it. But some of the reviews suggest it might be a tad bit too revelaing for most days for my taste. Make up your mind yourselves. The plate pattern is quite quirky. ca. 90 EUR.

Pretty in Pink and at a bargain price is this cutie from Dorothy Perkins. Get it for 20 EUR!

I was naughty yesterday and bought 5 minutes after it popped up this cherry dress by Hell Bunny. It’ll arrive next Friday. Sigh. Like a few of us I just LOOOOOOOVE cherry prints. They are trickier to come by in plus sizes than polka dots. Including shipping I paid ca. 75EUR. I got this on Ebay from a seller called Bedlamauctions. Sold out already in 4XL/ 22UK. According to Hell Bunny’s Facebook page it’ll soon hit the shops (and more Ebay sellers).
Update: Try Tiger Milly on Ebay.co.uk. They just got the lovely cherry dress!

Good hunting and lots of fun!

Shop with Me: Christmas Dresses in the Sale!

I already spent more in the sales than I wanted but look at this beauty – and it is still available in larger sizes. Though I wear a US20 at Lane Bryant I am stuck between 2XL and 3XL at Modcloth. And taking in is usally easier than adding…  So, here is one cute dress for next Christmas – half price – just keep in mind not to spend more than 150 EUR including postage – otherwise you also have to pay import charges and not just taxes!
Ich habe dieses Jahr schon mehr im Winterschlussverkauf ausgegeben als ich wollte, aber schaut euch das hier mal an. Einfach süß, das Baumkugel-Kleid! Und es ist noch in den grossen Grössen verfügbar. Und Weihnachten kommt auch nächstes Jahr weider. Bei Lane Bryant passt mir meistens eine US Grösse 20 (entspircht ca EU50 und UK22). Bei Modcloth nehme ich lieber eine 3XL, auch wenn ich zwischen 2 und 3XL in der Grössentabelle stecke. Kleiner machen ist halt leichter!  Nicht vergessen, ab 150 EUR inkl. Versand kostet es zusätzlich zur Umsatzsteuer auch noch Zoll!

And this is the final dress I sooooooo want to have from Boden’s 2014 winter collection – the lovely beatrice dress. Yep, a 1950s/1960s style brocade dress – fancy, but not too fancy for a date night (or for the office Christmas party). Currently at roughly the quarter of the original price. And at that price it’ll be mine!
Dies ist das letze Kleid, dass mir sehr, sehr gut in der Winterkollektion 2014 von Boden gefallen hat – Beatrice. Yep, ein 50ger/60ger Brokatkleid – fein, aber nicht zu fein für ein Date (oder für die nächste Büro-Weihnachtsfeier). Momentan für fast ein Viertel des eigentlichen Kaufpreises zu haben und für den Preis ist es jetzt zu mir unterwegs!

And something elso that is on half price in the sale – this gorgeous blue scuba pencil dress from Dorothy Perkins – at only 22 €.
Noch ein Schnäppchen, diemal für nur 22 € – das Scubakleid von Dorothy Perkins!
