Tell me where you're hiding your Voodoo Doll, 'cause I can't control myself

Yours Clothing PU Jacket // River Island Icon Tee //  H&M Skirt (old) // Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses //Primark Sandals // 
Primark PU Tote Bag // Urban Outfitters Leather Scrunchy // Urban Outfitters "R" Ring // Faux Pearl Earrings from eBay

Her får I et glemt outfit fra en del uger siden, inden at jeg klippede mit hår. Outfittet holder dog stadig - om end sandalerne måske skulle udskiftes med ankelstøvler eller sneakers. Det var den søde Elisabeth Moore der legede fotograf for mig den dag - jeg savner hende! Tjek hendes facebookside HER!

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

Here's a forgotten outfit from weeks ago, before I cut my hair. The outfit is still on point though - although the sandals might need to be replaced by ankle boots or sneakers. It was the gorgeous Elisabeth Moore who took my pictures that day. I miss her! Check out her facebook page HERE!

17 Sundays // S U P E R N O R M A L //





Det australske brand 17 Sundays har netop lanceret deres nyeste kampagne, som de har kaldt "SUPER NORMAL". Hele konceptet er, at tøjet præsenteres sådan som modellerne ville bruge det til hverdag og lægge det op på deres egen instagram. 17 Sundays mener nemlig, at deres tøj først rigtigt kommer til live, når det styles og bruges af pigerne selv. Jeg elsker virkelig 17 Sundays - både tøjet og pigerne bag. Og denne kampagne forstærker blot min kærlighed til dem! Det er desuden et kæmpe skridt i den rigtige retning, at 17 Sundays nu forhandles i det australske stormagasin MYER, og jeg er så stolt af dem. Da jeg backpackede i Australien i 2007, kunne jeg ikke finde tøj i min størrelse nogen steder, så 17 Sundays er virkelig pionerer - de brænder for deres brand og for hele plus-size fællesskabet - og det skinner igennem! Det er nogle helt fantastiske kvinder der står bag, og derfor glæder det mig også at kunne love, at det snart bliver endnu nemmere for os at få fingrene i deres tøj. Inden længe lanceres mærket nemlig på en stor, europæisk hjemmeside. Stay tuned, så skal jeg nok fortælle jer hvor og hvornår!

Se hele SUPER NORMAL magasinet HER, og læs neden under, hvad designeren Claire Primrose har at sige om kampagnen. 

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

The australian brand 17 Sundays has just launched their latest campaign called "SUPER NORMAL". The idea is that the clothes is presented in a way that the models would wear it in their free time, and how they would upload it to their own instagrams. 17 Sundays believe that their clothes only really come to life, when it's styled and worn by the girls themselves. I really love 17 Sundays - both the clothes and the women behind it. And this campaign only magnifies my love for them! It's also a giant step in the right direction that 17 Sundays is now available at the biggest australian department store "MYER", and I'm so proud of them. When I backpacked Australia in 2007 I couldn't find clothes in my size anywhere, and 17 Sundays really are pioneers - they are passionate about their brand and about the plus-size community - and that really shows! The women behind the brand are amazing, and I'm so excited to announce that it will soon be much easier for europeans to get their hands on 17 Sundays' pieces, as it'll be available on a major european website very soon. Stay tuned, and I'll keep you updated on when and where!

See the full SUPER NORMAL magazine HERE, and read what the designer Claire Primrose has to say about the campaign:


"SUPER NORMAL is an exploration of the ease and livability of 17 Sundays. The collection focuses on the most important part of 17 Sundays’ garments, which is the girls that live in them. ‘SUPER NORMAL’ is about celebrating the lifestyle and models in the plus category.Our ranges would be threads and buttons on a rack if it wasn’t for the girls we shoot with, that absolutely bring the heat to our collection, they add context to the story, add depth and charisma to our brands and basically realize our vision on film and paper.17 Sundays collaborated with one of Australia’s best fashion photographers and 3 amazing models, Sophie Sheppard, Margaret McPherson and Ellen Kinsella. The girls represent the lifestyle of 17 Sundays and breathe life into the garments. The campaign is firmly about how they would present themselves ‘off duty’ via their instagram accounts and within their own social media and of course how they live in 17. The brand is lucky to have access to some of the world’s best plus models in AU and we want to celebrate them and 17 in a fashion context."

Caught in the grey

Jackie Cardigan (gifted for review) // Jackie Grey Knitted T-shirt (gifted for review) // Carmakoma "Elgon" Jeans // Le Coq Sportif Sneakers // Pieces Bum Bag

Nogle gange skal det bare være casual og behageligt - og så er jeans, t-shirt og cardigan det sikre valg. Denne cardigan fra Jackie holder dig med garanti varm hele efteråret og vinteren, det er en rigtig blød og vamset kvalitet, og jeg er vild med mønstret og farverne. Grå hitter altid hos mig til efterår og vinter! T-shirten er også fra Jackie og er i en tynd, strikket kvalitet. Jeg har den også i sort, og synes at de har den fedeste pasform. Desværre føler jeg at de fnulrer ret hurtigt, men det er nok svært at undgå når det er strik. I det mindste har de en virkelig god pris, ligesom cardiganen og resten af Jackies udvalg. Til de af jer der ikke ved det, så forhandles Jackie i Bilka og Føtex, og både t-shirt og cardigan skulle være kommet i butikkerne nu. De mørkegrå jeans er fra Carmakoma, og er også netop kommet på shoppen. Så igen kan I se, hvor let det er at mikse tøj fra forskellige prisklasser!

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

Sometimes you just gotta stay casual and comfy - and jeans, t-shirts and cardis are made for just that. The cardigan and t-shirt in this outfit are from Jackie, sold by a danish supermarket chain and the jeans are from Carmakoma and have just landed on the webshop. Grey is always in style for autumn and winter in my book, and once again you can see how easy it is to combine items of different price classes into one outfit!

I wish I was wearing... #Navy & Stripes

Navy & Stripes
Monki Oversize Cardigan // Boohoo Plus Striped Tee // Dorothy Perkins Denim Midi Skirt // Reclaimed Vintage @Asos Bum Bag // Nike Sneakers // Asos Striped Socks

Argh! Hvem der bare var lavet af penge. Der er så meget fedt tøj i butikkerne og online lige nu, og jeg har lyst til at skifte hele min garderobe ud. Det tillader økonomien dog ikke, men derfor kan man jo stadig godt drømme om tingene. Jeg har læst et sted at navy er det nye sort, og selvom jeg nu altid vil holde på, at sort er det nye sort, så er navy bestemt en farve som ikke er til at komme uden om her til efteråret. Striber hitter også stadig stort, og jeg synes at det ser funky ud, når man mixer to forskellige typer. Derfor sokkerne, som naturligvis skal i et par sneaks. Det casual look holder!

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

Aargh! If only I was made of money. There's so much nice stuff in stores and online at the minute, and I feel like I want to clear out my entire wardrobe and get a new one. Unfortunately my financial situation doesn't allow me to do so, but that doesn't mean I can't still dream about it. I read somewhere that navy is the new black, and even though I'll always say black is the new black, navy is still a huge colour this fall. Stripes are also still hot, and I love the funky vibe of mixing two different types. That's why I added socks to the mix, and of course they're going into a pair of sneakers. The casual look is in!

But if you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing changed at all

Jackie Sleeveless Shirt (gifted for review) // DNY CPH Tube Skirt // Bronx Ankle Boots (old) // Topshop Hat // Primark Bag

Her er et outfit fra forleden, hvor vejret stadig var til bare arme og bare ben - hvor hurtigt har det ikke lige slået over? Det er jo helt vildt! Men, men, men - det her outfit ville også se rigtig cool ud med sorte strømpebukser og en lang cardigan til, og det kommer jeg helt sikkert til at bruge til efteråret. Skjorten er endnu en ting fra Jackie, som forhandles i Bilka og Føtex, og den er i butikkerne nu - også i to andre farver/print. Jeg er virkelig overrasket over dens kvalitet og pasform. Det kan nemlig være rigtig svært at finde skjorter der ikke gaber når man har en stor barm, men den her sidder helt perfekt. Jeg kan også godt lide at den er lidt gennemsigtig, men uden at det er nødvendigt at have noget inden under. Man ser bare lidt af BH'en, og det synes jeg faktisk er fint. En anden ting jeg synes er lidt fint, er mit nye hår med hat! I det hele taget er jeg så glad for at jeg tog beslutningen om at få klippet det lange hår - jeg synes at det giver et helt andet look, og det har jeg længe savnet. Endnu engang tak til søde Tine, som klippede mig inden modeugen!

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

Here's an outfit from last week when the weather was still warm enough to walk around like this - it's turned around quickly, and we have fall-like weather in Denmark now! But this outfit would also look good with black tights and a long cardigan, and I'll definitely be wearing it like that during fall. The shirt is another item from a danish supermarket chain, and I'm pleasantly surprised by it's quality and fit. It can be really tricky to find button-up shirts when you have a large chest, but this one fits me perfectly. I also like that it's slightly see-through, but without showing too much - just a hint of the bra, which I actually really like. Another thing I like, is how my new hair looks with a hat! I'm just generally happy that I decided to get it cut - I think it gives me a whole new look, which I've wanted for quite some time. Once again a huge thanks to the amazing Tine who cut my hair before Fashion Week!

Stories... by Kelly Osbourne

Pictures kindly borrowed from WWD

I går offentliggjorde Kelly Osbourne, at hun den 25. september lancerer sit eget tøjmærke "Stories... by Kelly Osbourne". Det sker via HSN og en måned senere bliver det sat til salg via Bluefly.com og vil også blive tilgængeligt i fx England. Jeg håber virkelig at vi i Danmark vil kunne få fingre i det, for tøjet kommer til at favne næsten alle størrelser - lige fra 32 til 54! Det er så fantastisk et initiativt, og dejligt at Kelly ser en mening i, at tilbyde sit tøj til alle kvinder. "Fashion skal være fair", siger hun. "Og det er ikke fair, at fedt tøj stopper ved en størrelse 44". Jeg giver hende så evigt ret! Oven over kan I se nogle sneak peeks fra kollektionen, der i øvrigt ikke bliver dyr. Tingene kommer til at koste mellem $55 og $170 (ca. 300-950 kr.). Mine favoritter er den hvide t-shirt, de prikkede buksedragt og de to blazere. Jeg holder jer opdaterede så snart jeg ved mere!
Hvad synes I indtil videre?

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

Kelly Osbourne announced her new clothing line "Stories... by Kelly Osbourne" yesterday. It'll launch on HSN September 25th, and will be available at Bluefly.com a month later, and will also ship to the UK for instance. I really hope we can get our hands on the brand here in Denmark, as the clothes will range from a US 0-24! It's such a great initiative, and I love that Kelly sees a point in offering her clothes to women of all sizes. "Fashion should be fair", she says. "And it isn't fair that clothing ranges stop at a size 14". How right she is! You can get a sneak peek at her collection above, and I'm happy to announce that it won't be expensive either. Everything will be priced between $55 and $170. My favourite items are the white tee, the dotted jumpsuit and the two blazers. I'll keep you updated as soon as I know more! 
What are your thoughts so far?

L'amour fou

Jackie T-shirt (gifted for review) // Carmakoma Skirt // Adidas Sneakers // H&M Rings

Her får I et cool og casual hverdagsoutfit fra forleden. T-shirten er fra Jackie, som sælges i Bilka og Føtex - og den skulle gerne være i butikkerne nu. Jeg er virkelig ikke for fin til at shoppe tøj i Bilka eller Føtex, hvis jeg ser noget jeg godt kan lide. Og til deres priser kan alle være med! Jeg mixer dog gerne tingene, og outfittet her er et eksempel på, hvordan man sagtens kan blande billige og lidt dyrere ting i samme look. Nederdelen i imiteret læder er fra Carmakoma og er et af mine yndlingselementer i min garderobe, da den passer til så meget. Jeg er vild med dens snit og længde. For at understrege det sporty look, hoppede jeg i mine nye yndlingssneakers fra Adidas, og til sidst tog jeg nogle simple sølvringe på. Nemt, behageligt, praktisk - men stadig cool. Sådan nogle outfits elsker jeg!

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

Here's a cool and casual outfit for everyday use. The t-shirts is from a danish supermarket brand called Jackie. I'm not too fancy to shop clothes in supermarkets, if I see something I like. And with those prices, everyone can afford something! I like to mix things though, and this outfit is an example of how to mix cheap and more expensive items into one look. The faux leather skirt is from Carmakoma and is one of my favourite items in my wardrobe, as it goes with just about everything. I love the cut and lenght of it. To accentuate the sporty vibe, I wore my new fave sneakers from Adidas, and then finished off the look with some simple silver rings. Easy, comfortable, practical - but still cool. I love outfits like these!

I wish I was wearing... #Biker Chic

biker chic

Her er et outfit jeg går og drømmer om for tiden. Jeg elsker når man kombinerer det feminine med det rå, og så er det jo ved at være efterår, hvor vi skal pakke os lidt bedre ind igen - yes! Flere lag = mere fashion. Jeg glæder mig allerede til at hoppe i jeans, støvler, strik og læder. Efteråret kan bare komme an!

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

Here's an outfit I'm dreaming of at the moment. I love to combine the feminine and edgy, and since fall is coming, we have to wrap up a bit more - yes! More layers = more fashion. I'm already excited about wearing jeans, boots, knit and leather. Bring on fall!

I'll follow you into the park, through the jungle, through the dark


Scarlett & Jo Paisley Dress // Monki Duster Jacket // Primark Bag // Monki Brogues (old) // Carré Moon Stone Ring // Pernille Corydon Slim Rings // OPI "Ski Teal We Drop" Nail polish @billigvoks // Haircut by Tine Christensen

Her er et outfit fra sidste uge, hvor jeg havde min nye kjole fra Scarlett & Jo på. Kjolen er lavet af det lækreste, bløde materiale og har en rigtig flot pasform, da den går lidt ind i taljen. Scarlett & Jo specialiserer sig i at lave kjoler, og mange af dem er meget festlige og farverige, hvilket ikke lige taler til min skandinaviske til, men lige netop denne syntes jeg var cool! Jeg matchede kjolens blå nuancer med min nye yndlingsneglelak fra OPI, og brugte derudover kun sort i mit outfit. Simpelt, men virkelig lækkert, hvis jeg selv skal sige det. Jeg kan mærke at min stil er ved at tage en ny drejning, og jeg har lyst til at lave mere minimalistiske outfits end normalt. Vi må se, hvor det ender. Min stil er altid under udvikling!

P.S. Undskyld den lidt dårlige opløsning på billederne, vi havde glemt at indstille kameraet.

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

Here's an outfit from last week, where I was wearing my new Scarlett & Jo dress. The dress is made of the most gorgeous, softest material, and has a really nice fit, as it goes in slightly at the waist. Scarlett & Jo specialize in dresses, and a lot of them are very festive and colourful, which doesn't usually go with my scandinavian style, but I really liked this one and thought it was cool! I matched the blue hues of the dress with my new favourite nail polish from OPI, but otherwise only used black with it. Simple, but really nice, if I do say so myself. I feel like my style is taking a new direction, and I want to keep my outfits more minimalistic than usual. We'll see where that takes me. My style is always evovlving!

P.S Please excuse the somewhat bad resolution of the pictures, we forgot to set the camera.

Zizzi Blogger Event SS15

The venue for the Blogger Event was huge, and looked gorgeous!
Delicious logo mini cupcakes!
Zizzi knows a way to a (curvy) girl's heart ;-)
Cute bite-sized macaroons
Mini burgers! They were SO good!
Yu-um.

Michael and Trine from Zizzi showing some of the SS15 items. I loved this blazer and shirt together.

Trine showing off an amazing baby blue set. Must have.

I loooved this net dress. It doesn't look like much, but it's so cool in real life.

Did anyone say Chanel Chic?
I have no words for how amazing this collection is! W.O.W!!!

Her får I lidt billeder fra en dejlig eftermiddag med Zizzi inden deres store show i Nikolaj Kunsthal. Forinden holdt de nemlig et dejligt arrangement for os bloggere, hvor vi fik superlækker mad (som tydeligvis ses i mængden af de billeder jeg har taget af det), og blev præsenteret for de kommende Zizzi kollektioner, samt det helt nye tiltag: designerkollektionen "Wardrobe of Wonders" - W.O.W - skabt af Femmes Regionales, som jeg allerede har omtalt i mit indlæg om showet HER. Der var også fine ting fra Zizzis almindelige kollektioner, men det var jo altså W.O.W der tog pusten fra os alle. Jeg fik en kort snak med Caroline Hansen fra Femmes Regionales efter showet, og det var simpelthen så cool at høre, hvordan hun også havde glædet sig helt vildt og syntes at det var et fedt projekt. W.O.W er designet helt uden "hensyn" - altså ikke decideret med plus-size kvinder i tankerne, men med fashion i tankerne - og det ses på den bedst tænkelige måde! Jeg er begejstret for deres oversize pasform, snit, mønstre og statement - og der er rigtig, rigtig mange af tingene som jeg bare må have fingrene i. Jeg håber at resten af Danmarks plus-size kvinder tager ligeså godt imod kollektionen, og at de tør springe ud i det. Jeg har naturligvis allerede spottet de første sure madammer på facebook, som brokker sig over alt fra pasform til for mange farver, for få farver, for lidt sort, for kort osv. Men tro mig når jeg siger, at vi altså var samlet nogle af Nordeuropas største bloggere og fashionistaer - og vi synes allesammen uden undtagelse, at det er noget af det fedeste vi længe har set! Selv vores tynde veninder vil misunde os det, og jeg er helt vildt spændt på lanceringen til forår. 
Tak for en dejlig dag og aften, Zizzi!

Nedenunder kan I se en kort backstagevideo fra eventet - og spotte en I kender ;-)

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

Here are some pics from a nice afternoon with Zizzi before their big show in Copenhagen. During the day they had an amazing event for us bloggers, where we were treated to delicious food (which you can clearly tell by the amount of pictures I took), as well as a look at their upcoming collections and their latest project: the capsule collection "Wardrobe of Wonders" - W.O.W - created by Femmes Regionales, which I already talked about in my post about the show HERE. There were also some really nice pieces in the regular Zizzi collections, but obviously W.O.W was the one that blew us away. I had a quick chat with Caroline Hansen of Femmes Regionales after the show, and it was so cool to hear that she had also been very excited for the show, and loved doing the collection. W.O.W has not been designed with plus-size women in mind, but simply with fashion in mind - and that shows in the best possible way! I'm thrilled with the fit, the cuts, patterns and statements - and there are so many items that I simply have to have. I hope that the rest of the (danish) plus-size women embrace the collection as well as I do, and that they dare to wear it. Of course I already spotted the first unhappy customers on facebook, who bitch about everything from fit, to the collection having too many colours, not enough colours, not enough black, that it's too short etc. But believe me when I say that some of northern Europe's biggest bloggers and fashionistas were gathered at the event - and that we all, without exception, thought that these are some of the best pieces of clothing we've ever seen! Even our skinny friends will envy us for this, and I can't wait for the launch in spring. 
Thanks for a lovely day and evening, Zizzi!

Below is a short backstage video of the event - spot someone you know ;-)
