Despite the fact that I am quite poor at the moment (where did all the money go?!), I still need my daily dosis of surfing the Internet for new inspiration and must-haves.
This week, I have found the items below that I think would be great together as an outfit :-) I especially love the new pendant and studs from Thomas Sabo as spring has arrived and I am definitely in need of some sun! And yes - it is time to find my sandals and make everyone know that summer is soon on the way! (Hopefully...!)
Thanks to a tip from Style Has NO Size, I have spotted some new and EXCELLENT pictures of Tara Lynn in her feature article in Spanish El Pais.
As fellow curvy blogger Marie Denee states on her blog The Curvy Fashionista, "... she is a beast in front of the camera. Giving us fashion, inspiration, drama, and sass- all while challenging and pushing through the norms of the fashion industry."
If you know any Spanish, read the article right here or you can translate it to get a grasp of her life story from when when she first came to Paris as an au pair, but suddenly was shooting for Vogue Italy as an international curvy model.
Edith Dohmen designs the ultimate clothing line for ‘in between’ sizes. Named after herself, this line is exclusively designed for women just like her. In Dohmen’s decade of experience as a fashion stylist and blogger for the widely popular www.stylehasnosize.com, she discovered early on that looking beautiful and stylish doesn’t have anything to do with obtaining a certain clothing size. Unfortunately though, there wasn’t much choice in clothing on the market for inbetweenies - women wearing sizes 42 up to 48 EU/12-18 US/14-20 UK - like her.
From visualization to clothing line
Edith: “Designing a clothing line was a dream come true. My very first line is meant especially for those women wearing in between sizes. This group of women isn’t often able to find clothes in their size at quality labels, as those labels would regularly just sell clothes up to a size 42 EU/12 US/14 UK. And then on the other end, I find most plus size labels sell clothes that are too big or loose-fitting for me. With my clothing line Edith Dohmen I took the shape of these women into account: all curves are fully appreciated because I’m not only focusing on breasts or hips, but also, for instance, on the upper arms. And thanks to the sophistication of tailoring per item of clothing you’ll choose a size that is perfectly yours.
Ladylike, Simplicity & Rebel
For her first clothing line, Edith chose to go with a vintage look: a mix of high fashion and her own sense of style. The line exists of 3 types of styles: Ladylike, Simplicity and Rebel. Three styles perfectly compatible for some fun mixing and matching: from feminine and up-to-date, simplistic and timeless, to edgy and eye-catching prints. The clothing line comes with jackets, blouses, dresses, tunics and skirts. Edith: “For the materials I chose supple looking fabrics, and these were used on the blouses, the dresses and the tunics. The blazers were created from different kinds of fabric, such as gobelin and a beautiful cotton. Striking textures such as buttons and zippers are of huge importance to me as they really generate a well-styled look.” The prizes of the clothing line vary between €99 for a blouse or a skirt to €279 for a gobelin jacket.
Where to buy?
At first look the clothes will be sold through a webshop, www.edithdohmen.com. The website displays a chic and vintage look and clearly distincts between the three different types of styles. Webshoppers will embrace the variety of innovative clothing combinations and the attention to personal advice and detail. This will be illustrated, among other things, through fans and clients showing their personal Edith Dohmen outfits and the stories behind their purchase.
