lol ur not harry styles

Jersey Bomber: Zizzi // T-shirt: eBay // Skirt: Primark (similar here) // Tights: Zizzi // Boots: Steve Madden // Earrings: unknown

Glædelig bagjul allesammen! Jeg håber at I har haft en skøn jul, eller blot en dejlig ferie, hvis I ikke fejrer.
Jeg havde egentlig planlagt at skyde en masse outfits når nu jeg var i Odense på juleferie, men vejret ville det anderledes. Øv. Lillejuleaften nåede jeg dog at få knipset dette, så det bliver årets sidste outfit på bloggen. Jeg fatter ikke, hvor 2013 er blevet af, det er simpelthen som om det er fløjet forbi. Lige nu sidder jeg (stadig) i eksamensstress, men jeg vender stærkt tilbage i 2014. Hav et fantastisk nytår, og pas på jer selv. Tak for året der gik :-)

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you've had an amazing Christmas, or just a nice break, if you're not celebrating. I'd planned to shoot a lot of outfits while being home for Christmas, but the weather wasn't really cooperating, boo! I did manage to get one outfit on camera though, so this will be the final one this year. I can't believe how quickly 2013 has gone, it's really flown by! Right now I'm (still) in the middle of exams, but I'll return full force in 2014. Have a happy New Year's, and be careful out there. Thanks for this past year :-)

Carmakoma SS14 Sneak Peek

Photo Credit: Carmakoma // Lars Wahl

Carmakoma har sendt mig deres lookbook til forår-/sommerkollektionen 2014, og I skal ikke snydes for et smugkig. Det var den kollektion der blev vist til deres Garden Party i august, og som jeg allerede talte om dengang, så er den virkelig lækker. Kollektionen er som sædvanlig stærk i sit udtryk, men har flere farver end hvad vi tidligere har set. I kan gense indlægget fra showet her. Jeg glæder mig enormt meget til at kollektionen begynder at komme på shoppen i januar, og der er flere ting jeg får svært ved at leve uden! Læs nedenunder, hvad Carmakoma selv siger om kollektionen:

Carmakoma has sent me their lookbook for Spring/Summer 2014, and I thought you might like a sneak peek at it. This is the collection that was featured in their Garden Party in August, and as I said back then, it's really nice. The collection is as usual very strong, but it has a lot more colours than we've seen before. You can find the post from the show here. I'm really excited for the collection to hit the shop from January, and there are several pieces I'll have a hard time living without! Read below, what Carmakoma has to say about the new collection:



“I PICTURE YOU | YOU PICTURE ME” 
is a celebration of women’s endless source of inspiration - each other. Expressions create impressions that in return manifest themselves in new expressions. New looks and trends fascinate and tell new stories that are adapted to the individual mood and personality. Unique stories develop before our eyes. I picture you | you picture me arise from the inspiring jungle of unique stories in the urban environment - told through individual looks. No tradition, no inhibitions. Just look like you - BE YOU.

I picture you | you picture me is the result of Carmakoma’s experimental play with a mysterious and horrific grunge universe similar to the one of Hitchcock. The brutally honest and sincere presentation of the collection character provides interesting contrasts to the futuristic sci-fi plastic looks and an angelic innocence reflected in the new white and bright styles. As a grunge angel she is angel at day and demon at night.

Christmas Giveaway!


[For danish readers only, sorry!!!]




For nogle uger siden fik jeg en lille pakke fra Zizzi, men desværre kunne jeg ikke passe denne fine kjole, og derfor udlodder jeg den nu på min facebookside her, og på min instagram @stickysweetdanish. Kjolen er en størrelse S (42/44) og er i et elastisk stof, som gerne må sidde lidt til. Derfor mener jeg umiddelbart godt, at man som en 46 også kan passe den, da den kun var for stram over brystet til mig (hvor jeg normalt også er nærmere en størrelse 48). Konkurrencen slutter på fredag d. 20/12 kl. 14, og man kan deltage både på facebook og på instagram. Jeg sender kjolen afsted til vinderen ligeså snart jeg får adressen, så det er et oplagt bud på en nytårskjole! I kan se kjolen hos Zizzi lige her. Held og lykke til de der deltager, og rigtig glædelig jul allesammen!

For et par uger siden var jeg inviteret med til photoshoot for Zizzis forårskollektion, hvor den underskønne Denise Bidot endnu engang skal være frontfigur. Det var spændende at se, hvordan sådan et shoot forløber, og hvad der skal stables på benene for at det hele spiller som det skal. Der er ingen tvivl om at der er lagt mange timers planlægning i det, og derfor var jeg først og fremmest overrasket over, hvor stressfri en dag det var. Ligeså snart jeg trådte ind ad døren til studiet, blev jeg indhyllet af den varme atmosfære og den afslappede stemning, og sådan fortsatte resten af dagen. Alle var i godt humør - der blev grint, pjattet og hygget imellem de forskellige takes, og der var ingen snert af hverken snobberi, arrogance eller andre negative adjektiver som normalt associeres med modeindustrien. Selvom det var lidt intimiderende at komme udefra og hægte sig på sådan et sammentømret team, lykkedes det alle at få mig til at føle mig velkommen, og næsten som en del af teamet. Jeg fik nogle rigtig gode snakke med folkene fra Zizzi, hvor vi både diskuterede tøjet til netop dette shoot, men også hvad der venter forude, hvordan hele plus-size industrien er i forandring, og hvordan Zizzi selv er ved at brande sig på ny og vil tage aktiv del i udviklingen. Der er rigtig mange spændende ideer på tegnebrættet, gode intentioner og masser af passion og engagement. Hvis bare halvdelen af dette bliver indfriet, så ser 2014 utrolig lys ud. Ikke blot for Zizzi, men for branchen og for danske plus-size kvinder i det hele taget. Ovenover får I et lille smugkig på, hvad der gik for sig i løbet af dagen. Det var primært image- og statementbilleder der blev skudt, og altså ikke den deciderede lookbook. Men jeg fik kigget en hel del af tøjet igennem til de resterende dages photoshoots, og vi har virkelig meget lækkert at se frem til! Jeg er sikker på at dette er Zizzis stærkeste kollektion til dato, og kan endnu engang glæde mig over deres virkelig positive udvikling, som vi ikke engang har set enden på endnu. 

Efter endt arbejdsdag, smuttede jeg med Denise hjem på hendes hotelværelse, hvor vi mødtes med Christina og Tanja, og tog videre ind til Tivoli. Denise skulle se julelysene, og så skulle vi have en bid mad. Det var superhyggeligt, og jeg glæder mig allerede til næste gang at Denise kommer på besøg - hun er sådan en sjov og fjollet pige. Og ikke mindst en knaldhamrende dygtig model. "It's like watching an animal in it's natural habitat", blev jeg ved med at sige til hende.

Tusind tak til Zizzi fordi jeg måtte kigge med bag scenerne - det var en spændende og lærerig dag, og jeg hyggede mig helt vildt. Lad det ikke komme bag på jer, hvis jeg tager imod tilbuddet om at kigge forbi igen en anden god gang!

------------------------------------------------------------------------

A couple of weeks ago I was invited along to a photoshoot for Zizzi's Spring Collection with the gorgeous Denise Bidot. It was exciting to see how such a shoot is put together, and what kind of work is put into it, so that everything goes according to plan. There's no doubt hours and hours of planning involved, which is why I was quite surprised by how laid back and stress free the day went by. As soon as I entered the studio I felt such a warm atmosphere, and that feeling continued through out the day. Everyone was in good spirit - there was plenty of laughter and jokes between takes, and there was not a hint of bad attitude, arrogance or other negative adjectives that are usually associated with the fashion industry. Even though it was a bit intimidating joining such an experienced crew for the day, they all succeeded in making me feel right at home and almost as part of the team. I had some really good talks with the people from Zizzi, where we discussed both the clothes for the shoots, but also what's in store in the future, how the entire plus-size industry is changing, and how Zizzi are re-branding themselves and taking part in the change. They have so many exciting ideas, good intentions and plenty of passion and commitment. If even half of that comes to life, 2014 is looking bright. Not just for Zizzi, but for the industry and (danish) plus-size women in general. The images above give you a tiny peek at what went on during the shoot. They were mostly shooting image- and statement photos, not the actual lookbook. I did however have a look at most of the clothes for the following days, and there's a lot to look forward to! I'm sure this will be Zizzi's strongest collection to date, and I'm once again so pleased with their positive development, which we haven't even seen the end of yet.

After a great day at the studio, Denise and I headed back to her hotel room, where we met up with Christina and Tanja, and then headed to Tivoli (a local theme park). We wanted Denise to see the Christmas lights there, and we went for dinner, too. I had a great night, and I can't wait to have Denise back in Denmark - she's such a fun and silly girl. Not to mention a fantastic model. "It's like watching an animal in it's natural habitat", I kept telling her.

Thanks so much to Zizzi for letting me join them behind the scenes - it was a fun and exciting day, and I had a blast. Don't be surprised if I take you up on the offer of stopping by again next time!
