Carmakoma

I går var jeg som sagt til lagersalg/kollektionssalg for carmakoma. Min veninde, Anna, og jeg havde virkelig glædet os, fordi vi aldrig har shoppet hos dem før og nu ville teste kvaliteten, som vi havde hørt så meget godt om. Lagersalget befandt sig i lokaler på Lærkevej i NV og da vi først havde fundet det, var det et meget cool sted. Opsætningen var flot og overskuelig, og tøjet var også virkelig lækkert. MEN: Anna og jeg er en størrelse M/L (hos Zizzi i hvert fald) og næsten alt tøjet til lagersalget var str. XS (42) og S (44-46). Det var rigtig ærgerligt, for der var en del ting jeg gerne ville have haft og priserne var kanongode (1 stk. tøj for 150 kr./3 for 350 kr.!). Da jeg snakkede med de søde piger fra carmakoma var forklaringen, at M/L altid er det der ryger først på webshoppen. Derfor er der ikke så meget tilbage, når de så holder lagersalg. Det er jo forståeligt nok, men måske kunne de overveje at lave flere styks (og altså ikke kun for lagersalgets skyld- jeg har også oplevet et par gange, at disse størrelser har manglet i webshoppen). De er et plus-size brand og når de største størrelser sælger mest, så var det da en mulighed? Bare en tanke. Når det er sagt, må jeg også lige sige, at deres størrelser er små. Jeg er virkelig ligeglad med, hvad størrelse der står i nakken, men jeg var overrasket over, hvor meget af deres tøj jeg ikke kunne passe. Her fik jeg også snakket med pigerne og de kunne fortælle, at de fra efteråret begynder at føre str. XL. Det synes jeg er virkelig positivt, for så kan endnu flere smukke, kurvede kvinder være med. Derudover snakkede vi om blogs og om, hvordan de har samarbejde med bl.a de skønne bloggere Gabi og Sakina. Og om, at vi synes flere danske plus-size piger skal på banen. Jeg endte med ikke at købe noget fra lagersalget, men derimod at købe den smukke, smukke blazer Caracara fra deres nyeste kollektion og fik 50% på den (et megagodt scoop!!!). På trods af, at jeg var ked af, at der ikke var mere tøj i min størrelse, var det en virkelig god og hyggelig oplevelse. Stemningen var dejlig, pigerne fra carmakoma virkelig søde og tøjet er af rigtig god kvalitet. Jeg vil klart anbefale jer, at tjekke webshoppen ud, hvis I ikke allerede kender til den. Det er første, men bestemt ikke sidste gang, at jeg køber tøj hos dem. Blazeren har allerede været i brug i dag, men jeg fik ikke taget billeder. Der kommer dog et indlæg med den meget snart. Indtil da kan I se den på den smukke Gabi fra YFF. Jeg forudser at den bliver min yndlingsting denne sommer!

Her følger lidt billeder af lagersalgt og af mine favoritting
Here are some pics of the sale and some of my fave picks









Og her ser I, hvad jeg købte
And here's what I bought





Jeg elsker, når man ikke bare får sine ting med hjem i en plasticpose! carmakoma pakker ind i en cool stoftaske lige til at smide over skulderen. Og se, hvor smuk blazeren er! I skarpt lys ser den cremefarvet ud, men den har det skønneste strejf af sart rosa når man ser den rigtigt.

I love, when you don't just get your items in a plastic bag. carmakoma wraps your purchase in a cool fabric one, that you can just throw over your shoulder. And look how beautiful the blazer is! In sharp light it looks creme coloured, but in fact it's a very subtle rose.

Yesterday I went to a carmakoma sale with my friend Anna. We'd been looking forward to it for weeks, as we'd never bought anything from them before, but had heard so many good things about the cut and the quality. The sale was held at a very cool location and the set-up was nicely done. The rumours were true: the clothes were fab! BUT: Anna and I are a size M/L (at Zizzi at least) and almost all items at the sale were a size XS (EU 42) or S (EU 44-46). I was gutted, because there were a lot of nice things and the prices were amazing. When I talked to the carmakoma girls, who are nothing but lovely, they told me that the larger sizes sell first on the webshop, so when it comes to these sales there aren't many left. Well, maybe they could produce more of these sizes, when they are already aware of this? (And not for the sake of the sales, but because I've actually noticed lots of clothes being sold out in L on the webshop). Just a thought. Also, I'd like to say that their sizes run small. The stuff I found in L (EU 50-52) didn't all fit me. Now, I don't care what size it says on the tag, but I was surprised by this. Luckily the ladies told me, that from autumn they'll be running their clothes up to a size XL, so even more curvalicious ladies can enjoy their line. I was very pleased to hear this! We also talked about how they work with bloggers such as the amazing Gabi and Sakina. And how we'd wish more danish plus-size girls would join the blogosphere. I ended up not buying anything from the sale, but I got the wonderful blazer Caracara for 50% off. What a scoop! Despite the fact that there wasn't more in my size, it was a really nice experience. The clothes are beautiful, the atmosphere was nice and the carmakoma ladies are so sweet. I'd definitely recommend you guys to check out the webshop, if you haven't already. It might have been the first, but it won't be the last time I'll purchase from them. I've already worn my blazer today, but didn't get any pictures. I promise I'll do a post soon though. Until then you can check out Gabi from YFF rocking it. I think it will be one of my fave items this summer!
