If you are different from the average, it might be difficult for you to find the perfect clothes. If you are short, you’ve probably find yourself in the situation that pants, maxi skirts and maxi dresses are too long for you. Or the opposite, if you are tall, you’ve probably faced the problem, that the same clothes are too short for you. Both make shopping challenging. About naturally small size people I will talk in another post but today we are focusing on plus size clothing. Almost every online store that I visited lately have a section exclusive for plus size women and there are even stores that specialised for selling only that kind of clothing. That makes it easier to find the clothes that fit and are definitely in your size.

Also FashionMia offers you the „Plus size” option where you can find amongst others some plus size tops for women. These trendy plus size tops look great and you don’t need to worry about that they are too small. They usually start at sizes 10-12 and the biggest size varies by the items but it goes up to size 22. I collected some of my favourites but if you are interested in finding more plus size fashion tops, just visit their online store.

Falling leaves, pumpkins and sweater dresses

Every season is special and has its own beauty. There are little miracles that can happen only during those months. Autumn has colours that none of the other seasons have. It is about colourful, falling leaves, funny or scary pumpkins, cosy clothes and nice boots.
Sweater dresses are perfect for this season. Depending on the weather you can wear them barelegged, with tights, knee socks, leggings or even with skinny pants. Pair them with ankle, normal or over-the-knee boots, you can’t go wrong. Sweater dresses are great because you can dress them up or down very easily. If they are shapeless just add a belt to them. Choose a thin belt or a big statement belt to achieve different looks. Wear them simple or add some jewellery, everything is up to you. Wether they are tight or loose, they are definitely cosy and look great.

I collected some nice sweater dresses for you from StyleWe. Some of them are plain-coloured, other ones are patterned. Yellow is for example a great autumnal colour.

Colour psychology with evening dresses

✯ Hello Shiny Stars! ✯

♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡
Long evening dresses have their own beauty and they always look gorgeous. They can be worn mainly at special occasions like a wedding. There are different syles and silhouettes so you can find the one that you feel great in. Try to choose a dress that suits not just your sense of style but also your figure and you will shine.
The colour of the dress is very important. Black, white and nude are always a good choice but there are other  shades which remain classic by evening dresses. Just think of the colours blue, red or burgundy.
To choose the right dress, you need to take account of your eye, hair and skin colour. The dress that looks great on a blonde, whose skin is snow-white doesn’t necessarily suit a brown-haired, suntanned-skinned girl.
However there is surely one colour that you like to wear and you know that it suits you every time you are wearing it. Maybe that will be the right shade for you when you are looking for the perfect evening dress.

Did you know that the colours even have a psychology? It is not for dresses but it might be something that you are interested in to read. So let’s have a look at some colours and their meanings.

   Black: power, elegance.
   White: innocence, purity, cleanness.
   Grey: balance, neutrality.
   Red: energy, love, passion, desire.
   Blue: trust, loyalty.
   Purple: wealth, spirituality.
   Green: growth, health.
   Yellow: optimism, warmth, happiness.

A classic black or white maxi dress is always a good choice but in case you would prefer some more colour, on the picture above I collected some beautiful women dresses for you. I found the clutches browsing in the section of gifts for Thanksgiving Day. I hope you like them too.

Two sweaters and a pending shipment

✯ Hello Shiny Stars! ✯

  "Happiness is... receiving what you ordered online." 

♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡
A few days ago I received my order or rather a part of it from Nastydress. Unfortunately just a partial order was shipped out but more about it later. First I want to show you the two sweaters which arrived on that day.

A cloud and star printed pullover. The moment I saw this sweater on the homepage, I knew that I’d like to have it. It seemed to be so fluffy on the picture and as I opened the package it didn’t disappoint me. It’s a cosy, cuddly sweater which is true to size but its colour isn’t grey like it’s mentioned on the site, it’s rather a light brown but it still looks good. I've had yet one problem with it: the yoke on the textile was sewed wrong and therefore you can’t make it nice flat. If this would be for example an office outfit, it would bother me but not in this case.

A dolman sleeve sweater in colour purplish blue. I've always liked dolman sleeves which is the reason I chose this. It’s true to size (one size, XS to M) and its colour is like shown on the picture in the online store. 

Overall I can say that I am satisfied with these sweaters. They had a processing time of 3 business days which means that the items were shipped out within 3 days. To my order I also added a jacket which I really wanted because my own leather jacket started to peel off. That should have been sent out within 7-15 business days.

A few days after placing my order I received a message from the store that my order was sent out. I was really happy about it till I saw the details: my package was sent out without the leather jacket. They put the label pending shipment to the item but I didn’t get any information about what it means or what will happen next, whether I will receive the jacket later or not.
I contacted one of the staff of Nastydress who told me to choose a new item. I picked another leather jacket but it wasn’t sent out either and the item went out of stock therefore I needed to change my choice again. Later I got a nice respond which said that my new choice will be sent out within a few days. I will update this post later and I hopefully can add a review about this striped sweater and skirt twinset that I selected instead of the jackets.

Well, stay tuned. I will definitely update this post.
 Till then feel free to leave a comment below. Tell me what you think about my new sweaters and about my experiences.

Lots of love,

  "In life like in archery, you have to carefully take aim, to hit your goal." 

♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡

Summer came to an end (except when you live for example in Australia) and the fun with inflatable water barrels is now postponed for next year or for the next holiday you spend near the sea. But there are other ways to have fun with inflatable products. Doing archery for example which not only provides you fun but it also keeps you in shape. 
Practising this with inflatable sport equipment such as inflatable archery tag or bunker will protect your from some pain too. This archery tag game is very popular for parties and even for school events. They are portable and therefore you can set them up wherever you want: outdoor or indoor.

Buybubblefootball ( was established in 2008 and since then they became a leading company in the field of inflatable products. They have customers from all over the world, from Europe to Australia. If you have an idea that is not on offer at the moment, feel free to contact them with your customization whether you need a logo-printing or a personalised size, shape or design. Their aim is „to maintain (…) long term business relationship with (…) customers” and therefore they „promise to provide the most satisfied products”.

On the picture above you can see an inflatable archery bunker. It is made mainly in black and white but different colours are available upon request and to have your logo printed on it is free of charge. The delivery is made within 15 working days of payment and to Europe, Australia and North-America there is free shipping. Although you need to be aware that import duties are not included in the product price.
At the moment you can purchase the bunkers in 3 different designs and you have the opportunity to buy a whole archery game package which is a for 12 players. The kit contains 12 archery attack bows, 12 masks, 24 bow strings, 48 arrows, 11 inflatable bunkers, 2 target foam stands and 1 pump. If you buy it now, you will find the package on sale.

Have you ever tried archery? Would you practise it if you had the chance?
