The words she knows, the tune she hums

 I felt all 70's chic and a little bit nostalgic today

Jeg har mine forældre på besøg i weekenden og i dag, mens far borede og satte ting op i min lejlighed, tog min mor og jeg ud for at shoppe. Hun skulle bruge noget nyt tøj til en konference i næste uge, så vi smuttede forbi min butik og fandt en masse lækkert til hende. Her til aften har vi spist god mad og ligger nu alle på langs i min seng/sofa og ser tv. Superhyggeligt! Og jeg er blevet megaforkælet selvfølgelig. Selvom man er 27 år, kan det altså stadig være rart at blive nusset om. Dagens outfit var lidt nostalgisk og 70'er-inspireret og i nogle af sæsonens lækre farver: rust og blå. 

Hvis I følger mig på facebook, så har I muligvis set, at jeg er blevet skribent for onlinemagasinet Plus Living, hvor jeg skal skrive modesektionen. Foreløbig har vi aftalt at jeg starter med ét indlæg om måneden, men hvis jeg får tid og overskud, kan det være at det bliver til mere. Jeg håber at I vil kigge forbi. Hav en dejlig weekend!

My parents are visiting me this weekend and while my dad was hanging up pictures in appartment, mom and I went shopping. She needed some new clothes for a conference next week, so we stopped by my store and found a lot of nice things for her! This evening we had a wonderful dinner and right now we're all lying in my bed/couch watching tv. Of course I've been spoiled rotten, too. Even though I'm 27, it's nice to feel like a kid now and then. Today's outfit was a bit nostalgic and 70's inspired, in some of the hottest colours this fall: rust and blue.

If you're a follower on facebook, you may have seen that I've begun writing for an online magazine called Plus Living, where I'll be in charge of the fashion section. So far it's only once a month, but if all goes well and I have time for it, I'll post more often. Unfortunately it's in danish, but stop by every now and then and have a look. Google translate isn't all that bad (O.K, who am I kidding...). Have a great weekend!

I left my heart to the wild hunt a-comin

Shirt: Evans
T-shirt: H&M
Skirt: Asos Curve
Tights: We Love Colors (gifted)
Boots & scarf: Pieces
Clutch: monki
Bracelet: Details by Zizzi


Her til aften var jeg hjemme hos min veninde Sarah til en tår kaffe og lidt pigesnak. Det var superhyggeligt som altid! Mit outfit var en blanding af casual og lidt pænt- ligesom jeg kan lide det. Strømpebukserne er det andet par, som jeg fik i gave af We Love Colors. De er i farven "Hunter Green" og er superbehagelige at have på, ligesom de rustfarvede. Både det vinrøde halstørklæde, den bordeaux-lilla clutch og den mandarinfarvede læbestift er ny. Efterårs-colourblocking?! Jeg kan lide det! I må i øvrigt undskylde at jeg har været en sløv blogger på det seneste- jeg har bare haft rigtig meget om ørerne. Jeg håber at det bliver bedre igen nu her. Hvis I følger mig på facebook ved I også, at der snart er nye, spændende ting på vej!

Tonight I went over to my friend Sarah's for coffee and some girl talk. It was lovely as usual! My outfit was a mix of casual and nicer clothes- just the way I like it. The tights are the other pair that I got from We Love Colors. The colour is called "Hunter Green" and they are just as comfy as the ones in "Rust". Both the wine coloured scarf, the bordeaux clutch and the mandarine lipstick are new. Fall colourblocking?! I like it! I want to apologize for being such a lazy blogger lately, by the way. I've been super busy, but I'm gonna try and get better again. I have some exciting announcements to make this week, too. So stick around and also follow my facebook, where I update more often.

And you found me when my circus was in town

Dress: H&M Inclusive
Jacket: Zizzi (borrowed from Anna)
Hat: H&M
Boots & clutch: Pieces
Owl ring: Primark
Pink ring: H&M


Jeg er netop hjemvendt fra en weekend i Billund sammen med mine søde kolleger og en masse andre Zizzi-piger. Cheferne i Ballgroup havde inviteret os til "Plus Weekend", hvor vi lørdag aften havde middag, fest, fri bar og dans. Søndag havde vi foredrag med Lotte Heise, fik stylingtips af frisør og make-up-artisten Mike, fik efterårs- og vinterkolletionerne fra Zizzi, Zay og ZJ præsenteret, så modeshow og rippede kollektionsprøver. Det var et rigtig godt arrangement og jeg hyggede mig enormt meget med mine kolleger- især Anna, som jeg delte værelse med. Der kommer rigtig meget fedt tøj i butikkerne i de næste par måneder, kan jeg godt love jer! Selvom jeg ikke var enig i meget af deres styling, så har de virkelig formået at lave nogle cool og edgy ting. Bl.a kommer der bukser med imiteret læder, fede jeans med et mørkegråt, forvasket look, sorte jeans med en blank overfladebehandling, en sort blazer med imiteret læder, en kort imiteret pelsjakke, en sort bolero med  kæder på skuldrene, lange, chunky striktrøjer, cardigans med læder på albuerne og mange flotte bluser/tunikaer med flagermusærmer og kappeeffekt. Jeg glæder mig virkelig til at få tingene i butikken (og købe mig fattig i dem...). Jeg kunne ikke lade være med at få associationer til carmakoma, da jeg så meget af det sorte, edgy tøj- men det er kun fedt! Watch out, Zizzi is coming!!!

Lørdag aften havde jeg min nye kjole fra H&M Inclusive på. Jeg havde ikke planlagt at købe noget derfra, men da der kom udsalg på udsalget og jeg fik yderligere 50%, kunne jeg ikke dy mig for at prøve nogle af tingene. Jeg havde læst hos mange andre bloggere, at størrelserne skulle være ekstremt små, så jeg bestilte to kjoler i størrelse 54 og en nederdel i 52. Det er to størrelser større end jeg normalt bruger. Kjolen her passer mig okay. Den er stram over brystet, men fordi der er chiffon udover, kan jeg stadig bruge den. Den anden kjole jeg bestilte kunne jeg slet, slet ikke passe og solgte den derfor videre til en veninde. Nederdelen passer mig rigtig godt, og den skal I nok også få at se på bloggen. Jeg er ligeglad med, hvad der står i nakken på mit tøj, men jeg synes altså at det er lidt vanvittigt, at H&M laver deres plus-size-tøj SÅ småt. Havde det ikke været fordi jeg stort set ikke skulle betale noget for tøjet, havde jeg ikke bestilt det. Når det så er sagt, synes jeg at kjolen her er superflot. Det er en god længde og farve og kvaliteten virker fin. Da jeg ikke lige var i humør til prinsessestilen, satte jeg min nye hat og mine chunky støvletter, samt sokker til. Jeg er virkelig glad for resultatet! Jeg håber at I også har haft en dejlig weekend!


I have just returned from a weekend in Billund with my wonderful colleagues and a lot of other Zizzi girls. Our chefs in Ball Group had invited us to "Plus Weekend" where we had dinner, free bar and dancing Saturday night. Sunday we had a lecture with danish actress/ex-model/entertainer Lotte Heise, got styling tips from hairstylist and makeup artist Mike, we were presented the autumn and winter collections fromZizzi, Zay and ZJ , saw a fashion show and cleaned out the samples. It was a really good event and I enjoyed myself tremendously with my colleagues- especially Anna, who I shared a room with. There'll be a lot of  amazing clothes in stores over the next few months, I can tell you! Although I did not agree with many of their styling choices, they have really managed to make some cool and edgy stuff. Some of the things that caught my eye were faux leather pants, jeans with a dark grey, washed look, black jeans with a shiny  treatment, a black blazer with faux leather, a short faux fur jacket, a black bolero with chains on the shoulders, long, chunky knit sweaters, cardigans with leather patches at the elbows and a lot of cool blouses/tunics with batwing sleeves and cape effect. I'm really looking forward to getting these things and more in store (and spend all my hard earned money on them ...). I couldn't help but having associations to carmakoma when I saw a lot of the black and edgy clothing- but that's just great! Watch out, Zizzi is coming!

Saturday evening I wore my new dress from H&M Inclusive. I hadn't planned on buying something from there, but since there were sales on the sale and I got another 50% off, I had to try some of their things. I'd read that many other bloggers found the sizes extremely small, so I ordered two dresses in a size EU54 (UK26) and a skirt in 52, which is two sizes larger than I normally use. This dress suits me fine. It's tight across the chest, but because there's a chiffon layer, I can still use it. The second dress I ordered did not fit at all and I therefore sold it on to a friend. The skirt fits me really well, and you'll  probably get to see it on the blog soon. I don't care what size it says on the tag, but I think that it's a little crazy, that H&M make their plus-sizes so small. Had it not been because I hardly had to pay anything for the clothes, I wouldn't have ordered it. That being said, I think that this dress is really pretty. It's a good length and color and the quality seems fine. As I wasn't in the mood for the whole princess look, I paired the dress with my new hat, chunky boots and socks. I'm really happy with the result! I hope you all had a great weekend x

You can leave your hat on (hobo style)


Top, trousers & cardigan: Zizzi
Shoes: Deichmann
Hat: H&M
Belt: Dorothy Perkins
Rings: market in France


I dag har jeg været på arbejde og efterfølgende ude at rydde det sidste op efter introfesten på tyskstudiet i fredags (dvs. aflevere pant og ubrugte sodavand mm.). Det var en rigtig fed fest og de er simpelthen så skønne de nye studerende- på trods af at de er meget små. Suk, jeg er efterhånden en gammel kone derude! Hele mit outfit bestod af nye varer fra Zizzi og jeg er mildest talt vild med det! Jeg har aldrig ejet et par højtaljede bukser og var også vildt meget i tvivl om, hvorvidt jeg kunne "bære det". Men de er bare så behagelige at have på og paperbag trousers er stadigvæk superhotte, så jeg kastede mig ud i det. For mig er det altid et rigtig godt sted at starte, at tage ting jeg er i tvivl om på når jeg skal på arbejde. Sådan forelskede jeg mig fx. også i min buksedragt. I butikken er der ingen mærkelige blikke, der er kun kærlighed og en masse skønne plus-size piger, så dér føler jeg mig altid godt tilpas. Efter et par timer i tøjet var jeg heller slet ikke i tvivl længere- jeg elsker dette look! Jeg håber at I alle har haft en dejlig weekend.

P.S.: Undskyld at billedkvaliteten er så ringe, men det er fordi jeg tog dem indenfor med selvudløser.

Today I've been at work and afterwards went to clean the rest up after the party for the new students at Uni, that we had Friday. It was an amazing night and they're all awesome people- though they are quite young. Sigh- I feel like an old lady sometimes. My entire outfit was new and everything is from Zizzi. I love it, to say the least! I've never owned a pair of high waisted trousers and I was very much in doubt in regards to if they'd be flattering on me. But they are just so comfortable and paperbag trousers are still hot, so I went for it. Wearing new stuff that I'm uncertain about to work, is always a good place for me to start. That's how I came to love my jumpsuit. There are no weird glances, only love and a lot of fabulous plus-size ladies there, which is why I always feel comfortable at work. After wearing this for a few hours all of my doubts vanished- I am officially in love with this look! I hope you've all had a great weekend. 

P.S.: I'm sorry about the poor quality of the photos, but it's because I did them inside with my self-timer.

Six Take: TV/Movies

Yes, this is my mouth. Necklace: Corso Studios (@Etsy)

Så er det blevet tid til denne måneds "Six Take". Temaet for september er TV/Film, og jeg var ikke længe om at beslutte mig for, hvilken genre og hvilken serie jeg ville vælge: True Blood! Jeg er så fandens afhængig af den serie, at det halve kunne være nok. Og Alexander Skarsgård... need I say more?! Jeg besluttede mig for at lave to outfits, baseret på to af seriens karakterer. Ikke en direkte kopi, men en fortolkning af deres personlighed og stil. Den første var, naturligvis, Sookie. Seriens hovedperson, den lidt uskyldige og dydige pige, med skjulte evner. Sookie er stort set altid iklædt pasteller og hvidt tøj, for at understrege hendes uskyld og adskille hende fra de vampyrer/varulve/formskiftere hun render rundt med. Når jeg tænker på Sookie, så tænker jeg på hende med løst bølget hår og en hvid natkjole liggende i græsset, eller rendende rundt i skoven. At hun er en fe, som er i kontakt med naturen, afspejler sig også i dette billede.

It's time for this months "Six Take". The theme for September is TV/Movies, and it didn't take me long to decide, which genre and show I would pick: True Blood! I'm seriously addicted to that show. And Alexander Skarsgård... need I say more? I decided to do two outfits based on two of the show's characters. Not a direct copy, but an interpretation of their personalities and style. The first was, obviously, Sookie. Main character of the show, the slightly innocent and good girl, with hidden talents. Sookie is almost always shown in pastels or white, to reflect on her innonce and set her apart from the vampires/werewolves/shapeshifters she hangs out with. When I think about Sookie, I think about her with flowy hair and a white nightgown, lying in the grass, or running around the forest. That she's a fairy who's connected with nature, also relates to this image of her.



Her er min fortolkning
Here's my interpretation
Dress: Zizzi
Hairclips: H&M


For at prøve noget nyt, har jeg denne gang også lavet en lille video til jer, med en sang jeg lærte at kende igennem True Blood.

To try something new I've made a video for you this time, with a song I got to know through True Blood.


Den anden karakter jeg valgte, var Pam. Hun er vampyr og Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) er hendes "maker". Pam er en rimelig kold og kynisk kælling og jeg elsker hendes sarkasme og humor! Hun ses ofte i sort tøj, gerne med noget læder.

The other character I chose was Pam. She's a vampire and Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) is her maker. Pam is a cold and chynical bitch and I love her sarcasm and humor! She's often seen wearing black, preferably something with leather.



Her er min fortolkning
Here's my interpretation
Jacket: Zay
Top: Zay
Bra: Evans
Belt: bit'avant
Skirt: Dorothy Perkins
Boots: Asos
Cuff: H&M
Ring: Glitter
Earrings: Pilgrim


Jeg blev selvfølgelig nødt til at lave en video of dette shoot også, med titelsangen fra True Blood!
Of course I had to do a video of this shoot, too. Featuring the title song from True Blood!



Jeg håber at I syntes om mine fortolkninger! Det var i hvert fald sjovt at lave- en særlig tak går ud til min veninde Anna, som tog billederne. Husk nu at hoppe forbi de 5 andre piger og tjekke deres indlæg ud!

I hope you enjoyed my interpretations! I had a lot of fun doing them- a special thanks goes out to my friend Anna, who took the pictures. Now remember to check out the other 5 lovely ladies and their take on this months theme!
