As Seen on Me: Seventies Style

10:35 PM Imke Db 32 Comments


You could read in my Asos shopping guide earlier this month, I'm quite crushing on the seventies trend that's yet again a big thing this summer. We pretended to be a few decades back in the past last winter already, and the trend is here to stay. Embrace those suède skirts, denim dungarees, flared trousers and colourful stripes, and don't forget to add a modern touch.

As Seen on Me: Geek Chic

12:38 AM Imke Db 34 Comments


As you might remember from this post earlier this month, one of my favourite trends for this Summer is the 'geek chic' look, better known as Granny goes 2016. I went for an (almost) all ASOS look, the trousers being Asos Tall, and the turtleneck and glasses being Asos as well. You might be slightly weirded out by me wearing glasses, and you have the right to be, as I absolutely don't need glasses. I've always hated the trend to wear glasses when you don't actually need them but it seems like about 10 years after this was trendy, I decided to embrace this style. It can totally change your look, and goes so well with the Geek Chic look I had in mind.

The Boohoo Store Paris

1:32 AM Imke Db 32 Comments

 

Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the opening event of The Boohoo Store, the pop-up boutique by the British webshop I love so dearly. And the word pop-up indicates it; the store is unfortunately not bound to stay in Paris, and even leaven very soon, namely THIS Saturday, April 16th. So if you're from Paris, or just visiting, pop by their showroom at 72 rue Saint Honoré in the first arrondissement before Boohoo packs it all back up and ships back to the U.K.

Asos Trend Report: Geek Chic

4:11 PM Imke Db 22 Comments


This post is the first one in a series op Spring/Summer 2016 Trend Reports, the subject being the Geek Chic look, featuring (almost) everyone's favourite online shop ASOS. AsI'm now an official ambassador of Asos France, which I announced on Instagram this week, and with which I'm so incredibly happy because as y'all know, Asos = life, and we're now off for a month of Asos infused posts, which I decided to combine with Spring/Summer 2016 and their specific trends finally getting very close.

This particular post focusses on the Geek Chic style, better know as Granny goes 2016. It's interesting how trends change, and for Spring/Summer 2016 we don't go for short summer skirts and dresses, but keep it conservative, but with a chic twist. Pleated midi skirts, turtlenecks, Peter Pan collars, Mary Jane shoes paired with a big pair of nerdy glasses and a tight bun are trendier than ever, and seen as a stylish and chic look. A great Spring style, and obviously perfect to wear in the office as well - I'm a fan! SHOP NOW.

Wild Ocean

12:02 PM Imke Db 25 Comments


First of all, thank you so much for all the love and support on my last post you guys, you seriously are the best! The e-shop I'm collaborating with this month has been revealed on Instagram, make sure to go and have a look, or wait for my first branded post that's coming up later this week! 

The look I'm sharing with you today is the one I wore for the Beth Ditto trunk show, where I had the wonderful opportunity to meet this gorgeous gal who was so nice & sweet and incredibly stunning, I would love to be her BFF hehe! Hence the incredibly happy face I have on these pictures - I literally jumped for joy and had a happy dance after the event and my picture with Beth. 


The trousers I wear here are Asos Tall, my favourite tall girl brand out there, and I'm just obsessed with its cool print, which reminds me of a wild ocean, or maybe a modern art painting. Not only do I love the print and the cut (trousers that are long enough are a rare thing for me), it's also made from my favourite fabric, neoprene, about which you can read in this previous post, and also it's a litteral bargain - I paid only €14 for this cutie. Y'all convinced there heh - go get them right over here

I decided to go with a grey crop top that goes with the wild ocean colours, throw over my all-time favourite leather jacket and these moccasins that have seemed to grow onto my feet - I just can't let go. This outfit makes me feel quite cool & British, which makes me want to back to London to go and celebrate the Queen's birthday that's coming up soon! 

So what do you guys think about this look? Doesn't it remind you of the ocean? Or you see something else in there? And who's a fellow Beth Ditto lover out there? Let me know in the comments!
