Hello and welcome to a Style Imitating Art roundup featuring all of you who submitted ideas for this round’s art inspiration.
What Is Style Imitating Art?
Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey, Daenel of Living Outside the Stacks and me. Style Imitating Art challenges us to draw style inspiration from pieces of art. Every other Monday one of us selects an inspiration image and we each post the image on our blogs. The following Monday we share our art-inspired outfits. The following Wednesday, the curator shares all of the submissions on her blog.
This Week’s Presenter
That would be me.
This Week’s Inspirational Image
Shelbee’s rendition is so well thought out . I’ve always wanted, as she called her “Paul Revere boots”.
She elaborates, “I was really drawn to the neutral color palette of black, white, brown, and silver. I knew immediately that I wanted to style this white shirt dress from Zara (I recently thrifted it, new with tags, for just $10) layered under an old long black waistcoat. Because it is freezing outside, I layered a black cowl neck sweater dress underneath. I have had these two toned riding boots for many, many years and I have always considered them my Paul Revere boots, so they were an easy choice for footwear. I added some silver and gold accents in my jewelry to honor Mr. Revere’s silversmithing business. My silver key necklace just somehow made sense. And I really like the colors in this thrifted floral neckerchief for tying together all the neutrals in my outfit. Read further about her style (with some really cool pictures) HERE.
Jodie sent a picture of her mother Charlotte and say, “Even though her layering it different, it reminded me of the Paul Revere look!!!”.
A white shirt under a blue work shirt-well, it works! Michelle’s Instagram stories can be found HERE And here’s to warmer days ahead.
Salazar stated, “I went with a casual menswear vibe to reflect Paul Revere’s own outfit – I don’t have a waistcoat, so I chose this grandpa cardigan and suspenders instead. My pants are to reflect the color of the table, and my silver brooch is a nod to Revere’s silversmithing. You can read more on her post HERE.
Daenel says, “I chose this dress because the browns reflect the metals in the painting and my burgundy bag kind of balances everything out.” You can read all about it HERE.
My post describing how I interpreted the painting is HERE.
That rounds out this round up!
A big thank you to all of you who sent in inspirations. We will seeing you all next week.
Take care and here’s to be creative.
