Stripes IV

You, you only see stripes. I see Rothko.


Good so I finished my week stripes on the blog with this dress that also comes from H&M that I love despite his default, the fact that it is not long enough for my taste and that of Jordane.

When I saw the dress I immediately loved it because of the colors but also because it reminded me of one of the painters I admire most (specifically his work) that is Mark Rothko.

Mark Rothko
Mark Rothko

Rothko is an American painter who makes abstract art. The definition of abstract art is not the subject today, I go for the explanation. I suggest still some examples of the works of Rothko that you may have seen.

You should know that Rothko as most artists has inspired the world of fashion and interior design.

Below some creations clearly inspired by Rothko

and it is the same for the interior design.

So after this little summary of which is Mark Rothko and the impact it has had in different areas I think you understand me why I immediately saw the Rothko.

The dress is mine actually because I could not help but buy it because of the printed Rothkoien for which I had a real shot in the heart.

So I naturally offered Jordane, to make it a looks that are intended to make her want to be nice again and overcome his fear of putting things a little too close to the body.

The dress is ample, and that is a size 52 as Jordane wears.

The material is extremely comfortable to wear. It’s pretty rare for me to note it.

Well the real problem is the length when it is tall, and not mini enthusiast who by the way is a story of self-confidence.

For Jordane the solution found they are very opaque black tights and rendering is good.

I still think she will put trousers below history to have a mental comfort and be confident if she comes out with this dress.

I was in an electric wheelchair there is not even to debate how I’ll put this dress.

I have associated with a burgundy leather pants purchased from Asos effect through Jordane that fell over and talked to me immediately because she knew I was looking for something like that.

Besides, I show you what gives this outfit on me.

The dress has allowed me to propose several looks at Jordane while ensuring that they are all comfortable.

The first is very simple for a stroll in a garden or an afternoon stroll in the neighborhood. The look is a little bit arty on the edges with little masculine touch that I still love in my outfits. You put either a jacket or a vest or hat and so on because this is according to the mood of each. The shoes are comfortable, of course, both rock spirit and a little bit androgynous on the edges making it all coherent.

The second look, it’s something that I offered to go to lunch with girlfriends.

Girls between them therefore scrutinize it’s always nice to have the small accessory that will stand out and allow you to express your identity.

Here is the accessory that brings a turban whatever to all and says things about you and your influences. The bag « powder pink » blends completely into the holding and the earrings are a discreet and subtle reminder striped look.

Girlfriends always observe such details and that allows for a bit her fake casual girl wearing an outfit trying to make you believe that it has taken the first thing in her wardrobe in reality it much thought, and loves to say « but that’s an old old thiiiiiing. »
pfffffff, loool !!

The third look is more to find the lover in a restaurant.

Sexy but not too much and it takes (but not an obligation) that there is a little bit mysterious thing, inaccessible tad in the visual without having the arrogant air.

The bag should blend in all while finishing the look and the focus should be on the lips because it’s the forbidden fruit that taste lovers dream and allowed to subtly perceive while being outrageously provocative because of this red mat and that is through the capeline that allows himself to stage this game looks and seduction with the partner.

Otherwise you can also opt again for the hat turban focusing on the eyes or lips and remains mysterious.

Of course it is better to have a pair of pumps that still give the morphology a slim and sexy look.

The dress is close fitting, if you are complexed as Jordane now opt for a large loose vest like mine she wears and that will make you feel more sure of yourself.

So you will not spend your time wondering if he sees what you complex.

The aim is first to feel desirable for itself and it will make you desirable to others, namely the eyes of the partner.

Here is my week in stripes mode ends and I must say that I liked doing that, more than my pink week.

I hope it will help other women who do not feel comfortable in their bodies. Besides, girls do not hesitate to send me emails as some of you already do when they need advice.

Waiting to tell you something new (or old for that matter) that fascinate me, je vous embrasse. Take care of yourself.
