Size DOESN'T Matter...

Like many other Fatshion blogger's I also believe in never going by what size the tag says on clothes. If I see something that I like, I will hold it up against myself and sort of see if I can squeeze my butt into it and surprisingly a lot of times I can. The key thing is to look for stretchy material. By doing this I have gotten quite a few pieces from H&M etc. that are labeled L or size 14/16 which I am definitely not. Usually I wear a size 22, depending on the brand.
Yesterday I went shopping with my bestie and I always have to make a stop at H&M. So here are a few dressing room pics. I apologize for looking a hot mess but we had already been running all over that mall.

The red dress and the cream colored dress thing are both from the regular collection. The blue and beige sweater are from their Big is Beautiful collection, which I  don't think they sell anymore in the states. Trust me, you're not really missing out on anything though. I ended up buying the cream dress and the blue sweater, although the sweater really isn't my style but it was marked down to 10 euro so I couldn't resist. I actually wore the cream dress today but didn't take any pictures because I was too exhausted. I know, I know. maybe I'll throw everything on real quick when my hubby gets back so he can take a quick shot of the outfit.

I also received my boots that I ordered from Evans and the one pair that actually fit looks a hot mess. The lace up boots are just too tight, so I'm sending both back. In exchange I ordered a really cute bag from there and the coupon code from my boot post still works. I'm really loving everything faux fur this season, so I just had to get my hands on this bag.

Fangs n' Thangs...

ok I have to admit that title is pretty cheesy. Anyhow, here in Germany people are just now getting around to celebrating Halloween. I suppose Fasching here would be the equivalent to Halloween in the US. It always starts with Weiberfastnacht on 11 Nov at 11.11am. On that day most businesses will only be open half day because everybody goes out partying afterward especially when you live in the Cologne area. Traditionally all the women go around and cut off the men's ties to "take the power" from them. Fasching lasts for a pretty long time until March or so. Throughout that time there's all sorts of get togethers where people dress up and there's all kinds of parades etc. I supposed you could also compare it a little bit to Mardi Gras.

So, back to what my post was originally going to be about... my Halloween costume. It's no secret that I LOVE the Twilight series, so it only made sense to dress up as a Vampire. I was all decked out with fangs and everything. On to the pictures... Please excuse the shiny face, these pictures were taken after the Party.
