Style Imitating Art-Elsa Schiaparelli’s Iconic Trompe l’oeil Sweater.

About 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 Weeks Curator

Today, Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey is the curator.

This Week’s Inspirational Image

Elsa Schiaparelli’s Trompe l’oeil Sweater

This has always been one of my favorite fashion pieces by one of my all time favorite designers. I’ve even treated myself to a few books covering her designs over the years.

A few years ago, someone went to the trouble to chart out the design and make a pattern. I have the pattern, but unfortunately, it is in a size 36 and I would have to enlarge it to a 40. I know how to do this, but just haven’t gotten around to it.

Will You Join the Fun?

I hope this art inspires you to create a look and that you will join us. Send a photo of your SIA-inspired outfit along with a small blurb on how you were inspired to Salazar whose email is by July 13th. She will share the submissions on her blog on Wednesday, July 14th.

Anyone can participate and you certainly do not have to have a blog.

If you do share your inspirations on Instagram use the hashtag #StyleImitatingArt so we know you are there. You can also tag us in the images. Our Instagram names are: @terrigardner_meadowtree, @daenelt and @14shadesofgrey.

Take care and create on!
