A flare to flare...

I have recently discovered this Sportmax Code Austria dress...

... and I must say that I got intrigued.

Decided thus to design two outfits featuring this versatile skater dress. You can dress it up, decorated by a scarf or jacket, or down, accompanied by fabulous pumps or boots, following the occasion.

The first one, casual day-outfit, is just as good as  ideal for the Autumn season:

Top is a military styled, ponte jacket, in black wool. Fits perfectly the bottom-open dress and, on the other hand, protects from the cold, humid wind.

Accessories: black, leather backpack (how practical and modern), black&white bandana and cashmere beanie if needed.
For colder days I propose a loop scarf with a tiny pattern or, if wished, a more fancy knit-fur loop scarf...

As to shoes I propose the timeless Chelsea boots, again in black. If you want you can also suit it with the wedge ankle boots or, for even less formal style, buckled boots.

The second outfit will have thus the same purple dress as the main character but will be accompanied by the cocktail-style details. It shall be worn at late afternoon or early evening. Perfect for after-work drinks, cocktails, exhibitions or any other fancy events.

So, in this outfit we skip the top as the dress plays the main role.

Here, make-up can be more pronounced. Dark purple lipstick and extended lashes will perfectly match the whole clothing.

What shall be the footwear? The pumps of course. Here, I matched our dress with the Louboutin deep plum patent leather platform pumps. My second choice would go for the pointed toe stilettos. Both models fit very well the dress and the whole ensemble.

Convinced now? I guess yes. To give food for thought hereby some celebrities wearing flares: Emma Watson, Victoria Beckham, Amal Clooney.

Simple... but not simplistic.

Well, I come back again to SIMPLE. I just... cannot not to. This season SIMPLE offers a whole range of fantastic items that may become for some of us a good source of inspiration or even a must for the coming months.
The ordinary grey gets a divine dimention. Especially that the clothing is made of a very  high quality fabrics (a mix of viscose, polyamide or plein wool). Very much recommended!
I myself apply this 'sober' colouring by, for instance, such an outfit:
a cape top by Phase Eight (in platinum grey), accompanied by a plain white (cotton) skirt and those fantastic SIMPLE sandals below (collection Summer 2013).

For those that still prefer other colours or a bit vivid shades I propose the pink palette:

SIMPLE mind cd.

I remain astonished when looking at the SIMPLE CP collections.
Any time I go back to Poland I have to visit one of its boutiques. I SIMPLy have to :-)

The flagship items you in find in the DRESS PARTY title. Of course, why not, plus I'm a very dedicated PARTY madame.
So, what can we find for this season in the above mentioned collection?

Here's the silk skirt with a box-pleat and two decorative zips in the front. On the website the colour is described as a navy blue but I'd say it is a cobalt blue. The most flashy colour this year.
In the same tone there's another skirt to recommend.
A mid-length lace skirt with a zip in the back.
You can combine it with a plain silk of light jersey shirt. Il looks good as well with the leather jacket. I myself wear it with a simple cardigan.

What else can we find in this collection? Apart from the DRESS PARTY, SIMPLE offers also an OFFICE collection.
OFFICE, as the title indicates, is dedicated to be worn to the office, as a workwear :-). It doesn't have to be boring though. Let's look at this magnifique dress in a very vivid red.

This fitted dress has side pockets and a decorative belt. Very good thing to cover the after-lunch swollen belly. Made of cotton and polyamide blend it is a perfect item for the summer. These fibers have a very good impact on our skin. Nothing better than this.

The other option could be the typical office outfit, composed of a cotton skirt with yips on the sides in the nude colour and a simple white shirt. This stylisation is accompanied by a nude colour patent leather pumps and a xl-size black pochette.
All this is available in the e-shop of SIMPLE CP.

Welcome and happy shopping!
