88 years ago a little mouse was brought into being. A lovely animal, the official mascot of The Walt Disney Company, the first cartoon character with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks created Mickey Mouse in 1928 and his career is still undiminished.
Today, on November 18 we celebrate his birthday. It’s Mickey Mouse Day. With his red shorts, large yellow shoes and white gloves you can find Mickey Mouse almost everywhere. On clothes, shoes, accessories, kitchen supplies, pillow cases, carpets, the list goes on.

I’d like to celebrate this birthday with a themed wishlist where all the items are from Disney Store. There are some Christmas decorations and sweaters on the picture which are just great for the upcoming holidays. Anyway, if anyone wants to surprise me with one of these, please feel free to do it.  ;)

Have you heard about this „special” birthday? Do you have something in your home, in your closet that has a Mickey Mouse print on it? Or maybe Minnie Mouse or Pluto? As always, please feel free to leave a comment below.

Have a magical weekend.  :)

November comes and November goes

Winter is just around the corner and the temperature drops every day. But before taking out the big winter coat, there might be a few days left for cosy fashion tops and nice jackets.
Pair the sweaters with jeans and high heeled ankle boots or wear them with skinny pants or leggings and boots. Single-colours and simple prints allow you to create even an elegant look with the right accessories.
Leather jackets are great because they look perfect for many occasions. With a plain white shirt, jeans and sneakers they are nice for a walk but you can also wear them with a lovely dress and high heels for a night out with your friends.
Overall both men’s and women’s jackets have it common that they can create different styles for you. Wearing the same fashion tops with different jackets can give you a whole new look. Put on a leather jacket, a trench coat or a bomber jacket, you can’t go wrong as long as you choose something that you really like and suits not just your outfit but also your personality.

Get into the Halloween spirit

Next Monday is already Halloween. The day of carving pumpkins, wearing costumes, eating sweets and trick-or-treating. At Halloween, which is celebrated in even more countries, many decorate their houses with pumpkins, bats, witches, skeletons, ghosts, cobwebs and headstones.

Online stores are celebrating too. On DressLily for example there is a „Happy Halloween Sale” which ends on 1 November so you have still time to catch a bargain. The items on sale are not just for Halloween, they offer many clothes and accessories with reduced prices.
For getting into the Halloween spirit I made a wishlist with clothes, pillow cases, costumes and tattoos decorated with Halloween-symbols. Buying them for this year is unfortunately not possible because of the postage but it is great for getting some inspiration or maybe for next year.

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / pillow cases

All the items above are from DressLily, an international online fashion clothing and accessory store. They not only sell clothes but also bags, shoes, jewellery, different accessories and even wigs. Their aim is to provide costumers „stunning, high quality fashion products at down to earth prices”. They offer a standard free shipping but there are opportunities to pay for different postages to receive your items faster. If you found something that is after your fancy, take a look at the DressLily coupon codes on RetailMeNot for more savings.


Do you celebrate Halloween? What kind of costume will you wear this year? Tell me about your habits or let me know your favourites from the picture in the comment section below.

Different from the average - Plus size clothing

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.

Are you different from the average? Is it easy for you to find clotches that fit? As always, feel free to leave a comment below.

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.
