Orange is the new orange

I confess I did not know what to put as title so I contented myself with the first thing that jumped to my eyes, the color of this dress Orange/ocher.


As I’m tired as the oxymoron in fashion is the title of this series Orange is the new black, that bloggers to resume length of time the type yellow is the new black, pink is the new black and etc … I told myself that I needed maintains the stuff, but doing in setting abyss, orange is the new orange to make in the axiom.

Ho cow, I just give me a big headache here while unveiling the way my schizophrenic side. Don’t judge me. Everyone has his share of dark and dark shadows that made him do the bizarre and contradictory stuff sometimes …: D

Voila voila voila, Naf (Yessss I talk to myself) is self-tired mode !

In short, you‘ll understand the excess tire me although I admit that I loved the title Orange is the new black.

In writing I realize that I could have titled my article The Devil Wears orange, because the song in the video is « Sympathy for the Devil » by the Rolling Stones, and I think there’s the devil in fashion but that’s another topic.

Well, after this intro a little long, I tell you:

Helloooooo anyway!

I hope you perfectly.

I started the week on the blog with this dress to the extremely simple cutting color ocher as you can see. Soon I’ll show you a more minimal way, and wears by two morphologies.

The dress was designed (by me of course) with a milano fabric.

A dress with a bright color and also without printed is a basic one can have in her wardrobe because you can accessorize in different ways and stay elegant at all times.

It can also serve top with a pencil skirt or pants and you now begin to know that I love to create / offer several styles starting from a strong piece.

The first two versions are shown today are in my classic mix hyper femininity mixed with a touch of masculinity.

In both cases I made sure to bring a contrary and complementary color to bring a touch of modernity and elegance.

The idea here is that the dress be used for the same day but for two different time.

In the first version I would say this is an outfit that you can wear to go to work or see an expo.

The look is designed so that Jordane can walk without having feet hurt, she feels comfort in dress while class, original and modern. The cut of the dress is very right I‘ve added a belt because Jordane the very marked waist and it makes it more sexy without overdoing it.

As I like to make my own accessories I bought two dark beige colored scarves to 1 euro (yes yes during sales last year) at Promod and I stitched to make it a small cape (A bit like in my article DIY you can find here 11).

This dark beige cape I usually worn with Jean’s and a shirt underneath and I love the rendering.

So I associated this cape to the dress which is a variation of that color and not too much in the tone on tone I cut with this blue bag from Zara that you see often because visually I want it to be an explosion of color but it still further in order not to appear to a person under acid on a day of Mardi Gras.

Loved this formula that has been said by a great friend of mine, Leslie Chambon (aka Mamzelle Lilou) comment in an article a long time ago. I think it is very telling and it is one of my favorite expressions I use regularly since. Short!

Back to the dress.

So I finished the first look with tights, night blue colors, flat boots that are between burgundy and brown it possible to read the dress. They come from La Redoute, are leather and they are frankly gorgeous. Finally I put a blue bracelet and my famous masculine touch is the hat from Zara man (collection of two years ago) with floral prints that are resonating with all the colors of the outfit.

It is a outfit both casual, a little sexy, and current.

For the second version, I would say that I designed a look for a dinner that requires politeness of elegance.

The base remains the same. The hat gives a more mysterious side to the set and I believe this is mainly due to the heels posing immediately a deployment elegance, sensuality yet without revealing anything, which gives a little more mystery .

Haaaaaa the pumps, if I could, if I was walking I would have a thousand peers.

The look is more feminine, while keeping its casual side with this ample woolen vest bought last year at Zara. This is one of the pieces than I wear over the entire year. I will reproduce the model once it arrives from her something and the model is very simple to reproduce.

The bag comes from Sometimes I have already spoken. Its color is ab-solute-ly perfect for the outfit. Each color touch still respond once with the whole. I love this bag and perfect size. I asked Jordane bring the sexy side in the attitude, the pose and I must say that the result satisfied me enough.

Right now I’m trying to work with other women than Jordane and my sister to see if I can build the same alchemy at work.

I need to see my work evolve on other body and out of my comfort zone. Would not that why I would like to live in Paris, but good for the moment it is impossible and in fact I like my life in Nantes and I’m not a fan of the Parisian hustle and bustle.

Anyway I’m quite satisfied with the outcome of this second version and I am reliably informed (of the mouth of the person concerned) which is Jordane she looooooooves this outfit and is finally reconciled with her body.

So what’s your favorite version?
