Boohoo Sales Wishlist

8:00 AM Imke Db 26 Comments


I haven't ordered many things from Boohoo yet, but the stuff I ordered up there I love dearly (see here, here and here-, and now that they're doing up to -80% discounts, I decided to have a stroll through their webshop and make my selection of the best deals I'd most definitely wear. So here you go, a styleguide the Pastellics way, with pretty crazy discounts. Wishlisted for sure, and hopefully placing an order soon - swooning over that pink dress with feathered details and the grey cropped jumper I've been looking for for ages now.

White Boots & Graffiti

1:33 PM Imke Db 24 Comments


I told you about my new white ankle boots I got in the New Look sale in this post, and I can tell you I found how combining them works for me. I rock them with a light ripped jeans, throw a simple white top over it, my classic camel coat, and you're ready to go! Simple, stylish, chic with an edgy twist. Gwladys and I went to the lovely Puces de Saint-Ouen again to shoot, and we found this cool wall that in my opinion goes quite well with the style of this outfit.

Asos Sales Wishlist

2:41 PM Imke Db 21 Comments


As you probably know, I have a slight obsession with Asos (see previous outfit posts here, here, and here), so now that sales up to -70% are going on up there, I'm going even more nuts by adding every good deal to my wishlist. There's a new order on its way to me, which I'll shoot as soon as I can, but in the meantime, here's what's still on my wishlist for the next Asos haul I'll be having! And I swear you, I'm the queen of sales, so trust me on this when I tell you hours were spent on Asos finding the best deals.

Lace-Up Bodysuit & Ripped Jeans

9:36 AM Imke Db 38 Comments


One of my favourite trends this season is the Back to the Seventies trend, as you could read earlier this season over here. Being a great fan of Burgundy for Autumn/Winter, I couldn't resist when spotting this plunged neck bodysuit in true seventies style. And what's more is that this bodysuit is from the Asos Tall collection, double hooray for a tall girl like me - no worries about the sleeves lenght this time!

White Ankle Boots

10:16 PM Imke Db 25 Comments


A couple of years ago I would have cringed at the thought of wearing white boots, I honestly despised white shoes in general. I once owned a pair of white heels, and this was more of a love-hate-relationship we had. But as we all know, style changes, as does your taste in fashion, and when spotting these beauties on the New Look sale I couldn't resist. Especially for €12. (I'm the queen of online sales, really).

Fringed Leather Jacket

11:54 AM Imke Db 44 Comments



A cropped leather motor jacket with fringes all over the sleeves and back: my rock-chick dream come true! I feel like a total Hell's Angel wearing this and feel like dancing all the time, fringes moving with me. The best part of this all is, I got this jacket from the New Look sale for €16,50 (origial price: €55) and I'm still so incredibly happy with this sales deal. And honestly, the jacket was even better in real life than it looked on the website. The faux leather is super soft, the jacket so comfortable, and the quality is incredible for a price this smill. It's still in stock in sizes 36/38/40/42 so hurry before it runs out of stock my loves!

The Montmartre Guide

1:30 PM Imke Db 34 Comments


Welcome to Montmartre, my favourite neighbourhood in the entire city of Paris. From the first time I saw the Sacré Coeur, I was in love – the small Parisian streets, the artsy vibes, the cute houses, amazing restaurants, and the most beautiful view ever over the French capital. I swear you, Montmartre is the best part of Paris, and there’s more to it than the big famous church up on the hill. 

Sacré Cœur

Of course, the first thing that comes to your mind when speaking of Montmartre, is the gorgeous Sacré Cœur. Put on the highest point of the city, the Sacré Coeur was finished in 1914 (so quite a young building), and after more than a 100 years it's still one of Paris' most popular tourist attractions. Not only that, as the church not only offers great works of art, but also the most amazing view over Paris from the dome (it does feel like a revelation reaching the top after 300 steps on the stairs).


Feniculaire

For those taking metro stop Abbesses and taking the stairs all the way up – there’s another way which doesn’t leave you breathless and sweaty for the first fifteen minutes up the hill. There’s a feniculaire that takes you up and down the Sacré Coeur hill, and the best part is that it’s accessible with a metro ticket! I personally always take the stairs, because it sneaks in a few more minutes of cardio in a day, but for example when my family and Granddad visited me in Paris, the feniculaire was the best invention ever for my poor Grandad that couldn’t take all of these stairs. Thank you, city of Paris, for this great solution!

Make My D

A great little shop in Montmartre is Make My D, a clothing shop for women, that offers a great collection of clothing, in true Parisian style. The shop caught my eye when I spotted a shirt that said Tu sais rain Jean Neige ("You know nothing, Jon Snow) and as a Game of Thrones fan, I immediately loved this shop. The shirt itself is from the brand My Boobs Buddy, a clothing brand that makes strides against breast cancer - basically you're shopping and still supporting a good cause, which makes it a double win!

Place du Tertre

A square as picturesque as it gets, with great works of art, and half of the square that wants to sketch a portrait of you. The square used to be the heart of modern art, with famous painters such as Picasso living there, and the museum of Dalí just a stonethrow away from Place du Tertre - the artistic vibe certainly still is there, but the place has gotten so touristy over the years, there's not much left of the old state of this beautiful square.

Le Relais Gascon

A cute little restaurant my boyfriend and I discovered when wandering the streets of Paris at night is Le Relais Gascon. It offers specialities of the South West of France, and I assure you, it’s simply delicious – and so is the price. We went there twice already, and both times I left the restaurant completely satisfied. The last time we went there I had the salad of the chef, and in case you think “salads are for those who’re not very hungry”, I assure you this salad will satisfy your every need – I couldn’t even finish this salad, as it was so big, and I generally refuse to leave a single thing on my plate. We were seated right next to the kitchen, and 70% of the time people order a salad, just because they’re so big and delicious. Definitely a must-go when in Montmartre!

Rue Lepic

One of the most famous streets of Montmartre is without a doubt Rue Lepic. This street is by the greater public know as "the street of Amélie Poulain", as quite a few scenes from this epic French movie were filmed in the bistro called Le Café des Deux Moulins. This street is a typical Montmartre street: small, ancient, and oh so cute with its cobbles. Also a very cool fact about this street (and in my opinion the coolest) is that artist and fellow Dutch Vincent Van Gogh used to live on Rue Lepic. And I can see why, as in my opinion Montmartre is by far the most picturesque area of all Paris.
