Yum Yum Yummy

Mm, mm, there’s nothing like sale items at the website of German-British designer Anna Scholz to brighten one’s Tuesday. So many gorgeous items, all available through size 28, I don’t know where to look first.

Let’s start with this blouse, available in black or olive, adorned with a satin ribbon and on sale for the British pounds equivalent of $79 U.S.

Frothy and delicious

Also for $79 is this gorgeous, oh-so-sexy, slightly shimmery top, which goes so well from day to evening:

come hither, my new blouse!

And finally, a full $215 have been slashed from the price of this embroidered silk number, which I have the feeling will soon be joining Plumcake’s collection of Little Black Dresses:

Fit for a Queen, or just Queen size!

Full sale list is here.

Happy shopping!

xoxo, Francesca

    I knew you would pull through for me my super sisters from across the pond! I have an interview for a job coming (as I’m socially deprived and working from home kills the social life) and I have no idea what to wear but you have answered my helpless prayers! I bow down to your knowledge of all that is fun and fashionable and hope that one day, just one day, I can return the favor…

    Your little piece of British Chunkness…x

    I fear those high-waisted tops, as I’m afraid people will think they’re maternity tops. Do they really look okay, even on a girl with a belly, or will people want to know when my due date is?

    Jezebella, the answer to your question is … it depends. I apologize, but it really depends on the cut of the high-waisted top, and where you carry your weight: midriff? Belly? Both? The high-waisted tops which have an X seaming where the body and top sections meet are the most flattering – IF you make sure the bust seams sit UNDER the bust! I’ve seen too many women, especially bosomy ones, who buy too small a size, so that the seam cuts across the bosom. It is TEH AWFUL. The Empire tops which are cut straight under the bust, possibly with gathers across the belly, have the potential to be enfattening and unflattering. Try them on, and use your common sense. If you have a belly, the best length for those tops is across the belly, just before it widens – if you wear it long and snug so it cups the belly, it will make you look heavier. The best skirts to wear with those tops tend to be straight skirts, pencil skirts, or bias skirts that trumpet at the hem, rather than A-line or full skirts, which look better with a shorter, more fitted top.
