1 Maxi Skirt = Many Looks

goodness, Tish has been having quite a conversation about dressy vs. casual
 going on over at her place...

in my professional opinion, a woman can look wonderful both ways,
& I give you this creation made in Polyvore as an example.

on the left is the dressy way, with 2 beautiful jacket options,
a silk blazer, and an Oscar sweater jacket which stops at the waist.
either can be worn over the peplum blouse.
add the long long silk scarf for more drama, or for a little wrap.
gladiator sandals, the pink/turquoise earrings are perfect.
the draw-string bag & the bag which you've seen many times here at Splenderosa.

Everyday Anywhere by splenderosa on Polyvore featuring Oscar de la Renta, Lacoste, River Island, Ralph Lauren Blue Label, Roberto Cavalli, Valentino, Dolce Vita, Converse, Yves Saint Laurent and Chloé

on the right, you will see 2 different cotton sweaters 1 cropped and 1 a long pull-over with polka dots, the casual big straw bag, high-top tennies, 
and a multi-colored sandal which would make the outfit pop. 
 I love high=top tennies, my favs being white with rhinestones, of course.

now, tell me, would you wear this?

it could go from grocery, to doctor appointments, to lunch, errands, to dinner,

please let me know what you think,
(& if you're petite & don't think you can wear maxi's, please think again.
take them up from the waist, leaving the hem undisturbed, it's easy.


below is an email I just received from one of the lovely ladies who purchased
the BLACK handbag like the turquoise one above:

Good afternoon from Paris, Marsha!

Just a quick note to let you know that my black cross-body bag arrived about a week before we left for Paris and I have been using it every day since we arrived.  It is absolutely perfect and I have received several compliments on it from women that I have never met before!  As you know, there are shops and stores with beautiful bags on nearly every block of this magnificent city and I feel like I fit right in!  So, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Have a wonderful Monday.
