Take a running leap through the hoop, even if it's in flames

I lørdags modtog jeg en pakke hele vejen fra Australien. De skønne, skønne damer fra 17 Sundays har været så søde at lade mig vælge nogle lækre ting fra shoppen og allerede efter 4 dage ankom pakken! Hele oplevelsen var simpelthen fantastisk: den første kontakt med søde Claire fra 17's, postbuddet dukkede op megasmilende og med et humør der bare smittede, gaven var så sødt pakket ind og det hele passede perfekt. Hvad mere kan man ønske sig? I dette første indlæg viser jeg jer to af tingene: en hæklet tunika og et par fede leggings. Tunikaen er dejlig blød og har det flotteste snit. Den sidder SÅ godt og jeg elsker desuden både længden og de cool "ringe" der er hæklet med. De rå leggings med "wet look" og jerseypaneler er også lige mig. De sidder ultrastramt på benene, hvilket jeg elsker, men er en lille smule store i livet. Det plejer ellers at være omvendt for mig! Jeg kan dog sagtens gå i dem alligevel og jeg er også allerede rigtig glad for dem. De er supertrendy og det er fantastisk at de ikke poser, hvilket jeg synes mange leggings har en tendens til at gøre efter et par timer. Størrelsesskemaet hos 17 Sundays er ikke helt til at regne med endnu- jeg prøver at hjælpe dem med at omregne til europæiske størrelser- men jeg kan dog fortælle at tunikaen er en størrelse L og mine leggings er en M. I øvrigt var dette mit outfit til Breaking Dawn, som jeg var inde og se med min søster, der var på lynvisit. Jeg er jo kæmpe Twilight-nørd og havde glædet mig virkelig længe. På trods af dårlige anmeldelser eeeelskede jeg filmen og jeg synes at det er SÅ forfærdeligt at skulle vente endnu et år på den næste (og sidste...) film i sagaen. Hvad med jer- er I bidt af en gal vampyr?

On Saturday I received a package all the way from Australia. The lovely ladies at 17 Sundays let me pick some lush items from their shop and they arrived 4 days later! The entire experience was amazing- from the first contact with Claire at 17's, to the mail man arriving with a huge smil and a contagious good mood, to the beautiful packaging and the amazing fit of it all. What more could a girl ask for? In this post I'll show you two of the items: a crochet knit tunic and a pair of wet look leggings. The tunic is amazingly soft and fits like a dream. I love the lenght, the cut and the hoops- it feels really comfortable to wear, too. The edgy leggings with the wet look effect and the jersey panels, have already become a favourite of mine. They fit super tight and perfect in the legs, but are a bit loose around my waist. It's usually the other way around for me! I'm making them work anyways and I can easily wear them as they are. I love how über trendy they are and also that they don't lose their shape, as I find a lot of leggings do after a couple of hours. Be aware that the sizing chart at 17 Sundays isn't completely reliable just yet. I'm working with them to get the european sizes just right. It's tough, as there are so many different charts out there. For reference the tunic is an L and the leggings are an M. This was my outfit for Breaking Dawn by the way, which I went and saw with my sister, who was over for a super quick visit. I'm a huge Twilight geek and I'd been looking forward to the movie for ages. Despite bad reviews I absolutely loooved it and I can't bare the thought of having to wait another year for the next (and last...) movie. What about you- are you a sucker for Vamps, too?
