SIA-Ellen Terry as Lady Macbeth by John Singer Sargent

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
Ellen Terry as Lady Macbeth 1889 John Singer Sargent 1856-1925

She came across it while looking up beetlewing embroidery – she was going to pick a beetlewing dress as the inspiration, but since she already chose a piece of clothing for my last challenge, she thought I’d go with a painting this time. It not only features beetlewing on the lady’s dress, but there are more colors and textures to choose from as well.

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 14shadesofgreyblog@gmail.com by August 24th. She will share the submissions on her blog on Wednesday, August 25th.

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!
