Plus Size Outfit Day September

Hello everybody,

And yes, I'm still alive! 🙂
The time with my little sweetheart flies by and I barely have time for anything else. But I tell you about my life an other time.

But now it's time for the Plus Size Outfit Day. The theme: All about Flowers!

Today's Plus Size Outfit Day is the last of its kind. For more than a year, we've been running this project with many fantastic outfits and great participants, but now it's time for new projects and new ideas.

My pictures were taken in Sardinia in the middle of September. The outfit is perfect for late summer days, when it's still sunny but already cooler.

Plus Size Outfit Day July

Hello together

And welcome to the Plus Size Outfit Day. It's hot here in Switzerland and the current theme works well with it. Picnic at the Park or in my place: Picnic at the river Aare!

Last weekend, it was really hot (up to 35° (=95° F)!), so we decided to go for a walk in the morning before the big heat. At a nice spot in the shadows at the river Aare, we had a little breakfast, as Swiss people of course with Ovaltine and Swiss cheese.

Plus Size Outfit Day June

Hello lovelies,

Today is Plus Size Outfit Day and I've been looking forward to this theme for months:
My favorite fashion icon!

pod-logo

When Miss Bartoz proposed this idea, I was all for it and started thinking about which fashion icon's style I'd like to do. My favorites were: Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot and Audrey Hepburn. Due to my baby break, I knew that I had to prepare the article and pictures well in advance. So the question was: Which icon's style can I do while being pregnant and how am I going to realize that?

After investigating various icon outfits, I decided to do my absolute favorite: Audrey Hepburn! My idea: Her outfit and style from the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany's”. Only.. how on earth can I get my hair done like that?

After short consideration, I recalled the right person with all the required skills: the photographer, hair stylist and make up artist Michelle Brügger. Michelle was immediately excited about the theme and here's the result!

My thanks go to Michelle Brügger for the wonderful hair styling and make up and for the awesome pictures. I had so much fun at the shoot, that on Friday, you'll get a report about it with additional pictures.
Michelle will also reveal the secrets of the Audrey-style hair styling and make up. That article will go live on July 8, I hope you'll stop by.

And now, I wish you a lot of fun reading the articles of my blogging colleagues!

Plus Size Outfit Day May

Hello everybody

Today is again Plus Size Outfit Day and with a very special theme: Wedding Bells!

pod-logo

In all the POD Blog Posts, you'll find something related to weddings and I look forward to see the posts of the other girls.

I also got married in the month of May and 3 days ago we celebrated our 5 year anniversary. Actually, my husband and I got married twice: One time traditionally with family and friends in a white wedding dress and then we said ‘I do' again 3 years later only for the two of us at the beautiful beach in Mauritius.

I wanted to share some pictures from Mauritius with you and tell you something about my outfit and styling.

WeddingBells1

I bought the dress at the boutique La Festa in Aarau. I was thinking a lot what dress would be perfect for the beach and finally I fell in love with this dress. The earrings are light blue from Swarovski. On my feet, I wore beautiful flip-flops in silver, which are decorated with lots of strass and still look elegant. I considered this the best match for a wedding at the beach. The hair styling and the make-up was made at the Spa in the Hotel Paradis. Today I would prefer different hair styling, but I still like the make-up, it's very natural and looks nice with the dress. I had a french manicure and pedicure. French is my favorite nail style for such special dresses and occasions. The decoration theme for the hair and the bouquet were my favorite flowers: Frangipani!

The pictures were taken by Julien Venner. If you ever need a photographer in Mauritius, I highly recommend him!

Now I wish you a lot fun with the posting of the other POD bloggers!

Plus Size Outfit Day April

Hello together

Yeah, my first POD living in the same time zone with most of the other participants. The pictures were still made in California.

The theme of today's Plus Size Outfit Day is: All about shoes and accessories

pod-logo

in the following pictures, you can see how my outfit looks without accessories and only wearing Flip Flops, and later with some accessories and nice shoes. I only add earrings, a belt and a bag, but I think you can see what a difference it makes. I like to round the outfit off with accessories, but not go overboard and look like a christmas tree.

I can't decide between the 2 earrings, so I show you both. Shoes – since my ankle fracture,  I only wear comfortable shoes that still look nice. I like these Gabor shoes, as they are really comfortable and I'm still able to wear it now late in my pregnancy.

Have fun,
xxo Melanie Rubenesque
