Introducing: "Double Up" [Peplum]


Cardigan: Carmakoma // Peplum top: Dorothy Perkins // Skirt: A/Wear @Asos (size down!) //
 Wedges: Asos // Necklace: Pieces // Clutch & Rings: Glitter 

Karina fra Copenhagen Curves og jeg er gået sammen om et lille projekt for vores blogs: hver anden uge vil vi hver især fortolke et nyt tema/beklædningsgenstand/farve osv. Dette kalder vi for "Double Up", og I er mere end velkomne til at komme med forslag til ting vi kunne fortolke! Det er ikke noget banebrydende nyt i blogland, og jeg har også tidligere medvirket i et lignende projekt med bloggere fra USA, Australien og Canada. Det holdt desværre ikke, men ideen lever i bedste velgående - se f.eks. Callie Thorpe og Danielle Vanier, som har deres "Two Fat Ladies", eller de australske bloggere, som har "Aussie Curves". Karina og jeg syntes at det kunne være sjovt at se det i en dansk version, og da vi har så vidt forskellig stil, kunne det også være sjovt for jer at se, hvordan man kan style samme tema vidt forskelligt. Vi har valgt at starte ud med temaet "peplum", som stadig er en stor trend og som holder i efterår- og vintersæsonen også. Jeg beklager de lidt mørke billeder, men dette outfit er fra sommerfesten med Zizzi i lørdags. Her var ansatte fra København og omegn samlet til buffet og fri bar på Bakken, og jeg havde ikke mulighed for at tage billeder inden det blev halvmørkt, sorry. Det var dog en rigtig hyggelig aften, som endte med verdens største candyfloss og bamser vundet i skydeteltet (ikke af mig!). Som I nok kan regne ud, så er det toppen der bærer denne uges tema, da den er med peplum. Det er placeret dejlig højt, og dermed camouflerer det lidt af min mave, og tillader mig at have en stramtsiddende nederdel på. Jeg følte mig rigtig chic og ladylike i dette outfit, samtidigt med at det faktisk var ret behageligt at have på (især da jeg smed de høje wedges sidst på aftenen). Sølvtasken og halskæden tilfører noget bling, og cardiganen giver et ungdommeligt twist og mikser fint med nederdelens mønster. Alternativt kunne jeg have valgt en sort blazer, men det syntes jeg alligevel blev lidt for modent et look til mig, haha. Hvad siger I, kan I lide når jeg er lidt "finere"? Jeg håber at I tager godt imod "Double Up" i øvrigt - husk at smutte forbi Karina her, og tjek hendes outfit ud!

Karina of Copenhagen Curves and I have decided to take on a little project for our blogs: every other week we'll interprete a new theme/trend/colour etc. We're calling it "Double Up", and you're more than welcome to suggest things for us. It's nothing new in the blogsphere and I've previously had a similar cooperation with bloggers from USA, Canada and Australia, which unfortunately didn't last. The idea lives on though, Callie Thorpe and Danielle Vanier have their "Two Fat Ladies" for instance, and the australian bloggers are doing their "Aussie Curves". Karina and I thought it might be fun to do a danish version, and since our styles are so different, it might also be fun for you to see the same theme interpreted differently. We chose to start off with "peplum" as this weeks theme, as it's a trend that's still going strong and will do so through out the fall and winter, too. I'm sorry about my somewhat dark pictures, but these are from Saturday, were the Copenhagen Zizzi stores had their summerparty. It was held at the old themepark "Bakken", and we had all-you-can-eat-buffet and free bar, so I had to wait to take pictures, haha. It was a really good night that ended with a huge cotton candy for me, and teddy bears won from shooting tents for some of the other girls. As you've probably figured out, it's my top that carries this weeks theme, as it's a peplum top. The peplum is placed high, so it camouflages my stomach nicely, and allows me to wear a tight skirt with it. I felt really chic and ladylike in this outfit, and it was pretty comfy, too (especially when I changed out of the wedges at the end of the night). The clutch and the necklace added some bling, and the cardigan gave a fun twist to the outfit, and it mixed well with the pattern of my skirt. I could've worn a black blazer instead, but that was just a bit too mature a look for me, haha. What do you think, do you like when I'm a bit more "dressed up"? I hope you'll like "Double Up" by the way - don't forget to stop by Karina here, and check out her outfit!
