Work vs Play Pt IV: Patterns & Prints

The last Tuesday of November concludes my final "Work vs Play" post, it's last but certainly not least! This time on "patterns and prints". The work look is a classic black and white, and who said you can't wear body con dresses to work?! Just dress it down by adding a blazer and keep the heels a little "subtle" :)

The play look features another great find, this gorgeous skater skirt. It has some gold like stitching into it, which really compliments the skirt. As my father is Javanese (but born and raised in Surinam), this skirt gave him some kind off "Indonesian" feel, which I also love. Another plus: it has pockets! Yay for pockets!

I hope you liked this month's theme. If you have any requests or ideas that you would like me to feature, please don't hesitate to contact me!

Work vs Play Pt III: Faux Leather

I don't know if it's okay for me to say this but! Love the clean black and white look, and the shirt and skirt, ooh don't even get me started about them! So this week's "Work vs Play" is all about Faux Leather, I chose this fab skirt as an item for both looks. I've already decided that my standard go-to silhouette for this Fall/Winter will be me in a cute sweater, paired with a skirt. So that's a warning! I bet you will be seeing a couple of those looks in the near future. I really have a thing for sweaters this season, what is your go to piece for the season?

Zizzi Bloggers Event

This week I attended a bloggers event for Zizzi. I had a great time! There were delicious food and drinks and of course, fabulous clothes! Zizzi is a Danish plus size fashion brand that caters to European sizes 42 - 54 (UK sizes 14 - 24 or US sizes 10 - 22). Their motto is "We Looove Curves" and I couldn't agree more. The clothing that was shown gave me the feeling that they really cared how plus size women look. Maybe it sounds strange to you but some brands give me the feeling they just want to make a quick buck, so they pull out a tent from somewhere, put some flowers on it and they're done. But not with Zizzi. With Denise Bidot as the face of their campaign they really nailed it. Oh, and they sell great shapewear too!

At the moment Zizzi only has a webshop in Denmark, but there are plans for expanding their online store in the future. You can however, shop the brand on Navabi (I did not see anything of the new collection there yet). Zizzi has two stores in the Netherlands, in Amersfoort and in Delft. So my fellow Dutchies, check them out whenever you're in the area! You can also subscribe to Club Zizzi to be notified on great deals and get a 20% discount!

Work vs Play Pt II: Skinny jeans

And we're back with this week's "Work vs Play". This time the skinny jean, an item that will never leave my closet. An item that can be dressed up or down and is available in so many colors/prints! For these two looks I chose a regular blue version and a printed one. Both looks have something else in common; the grey leopard print! Gotta have some leopard :)

Work vs Play Pt I: Pencil skirt

Introducing this month's project! My blogger buddy Nefferth (of Mode Plus) and I wanted to do a collab together. Nefferth is a fellow "Dutchie" and a total sweetheart. She's an "Emotionista" with a love for vintage and her style is cute but completely different from mine. Since we have a different style of dressing, we thought it would be fun to "spot the differences"  and inspire each other while styling a similar item. So this month, every Tuesday, you will see an item we picked, styled for "work" and "play". This week, the pencil skirt! For Nefferth's take on this weeks item, please visit her YouTube channel.

*Much to my chagrin the weather has been dreadful so I had to snap these pics inside. Better luck next time!

Next week: Skinny jeans!
