Neutrals for Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon

Welcome to my interpretation for this round of Style Imitating Art.

A Little Background

Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey, Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge, 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 Round’s Curator

Shelbee is the curator for this round of Style Imitating Art.

This Week’s Inspirational Image

Shelbee has picked an absolute classic: the piece that is recognized by art historians as being the first cubist work of art.

Pablo Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon

My Take

As this painting is mainly flesh tones, those are the shades I went with.

My first choice was the Calvin Klein jacket that I picked up in 2019 at a Macy’s instore Backstage. I love its sleek and modern lines. I usually wear a white top under it but today kept with the neutral tones and went with my neutral Chi-Chi Layering shell.

Because I visually needed a base weight, I decided to use some very old black Mango cotton trousers that I could roll up (wanted to show off those ties on my flats).

More Blush Accessories

This hat was what got me interested in trying out Curateur. It is a Teressa Foglia Hat and was in the 2021 Spring box. Of course, this hat is nowhere near the quality of her normal line, but it’s good enough.

I am still getting Curateur, but think this Spring’s box will probably be my last. It’s time to take a break.

Wearing this hat and jacket together is nothing new as shown with this photo below, which I had put on IG last spring. It’s was during one of our outings with best friends Debby and Tim at The Wine Journal, here in Adrian.

The Bag and Shoes

All I can say about my bag is that it is made in Italy and is leather (even lined in leather). I found it years ago on clearance at a very small boutique in Kansas City. There is no tag in it, just “Made in Italy.” The fine detailing really appealed to me The long tassel is something extra that I found at TJ Maxx.

The suede flats are by Steve Madden. They are not very practical at all; being so light. But I have such a soft spot for suede and think they are so gorgeous and fun to wear; a small luxury you might say.

Clarissa’s Neckpiece

My neckpiece is by Kansas City Jewelry Designer Clarissa McKnighten. She designs under Rissa’s Artistic Design and her pieces have been on here before. This piece is pretty simple and has the clean modern feel that I thought this design needed.

That finishes me out.

Now It’s Your Turn

Shelbee will be putting together her review to be published Wednesday. If you have an entry, please send it to her at by tomorrow. Hope to see you there!

Take care and style on!

  1. I love, love, love this neutral look and your hat and necklace are both extraordinary! I am really enjoying all of the interpretations I have received so far! The nudes and neutrals are abundant and so pretty as we welcome in springtime!

  2. These challenges are always such fun! I didn’t get a post done in time because I thought I had until next week. I did send Shelbee a photo, though. I love your take on it…that bag is amazing! And, I really do need to add some hats to my closet. I have a couple of inexpensive straw ones, a couple of Lilly Pulitzer baseball caps, and that’s it! I just never think to look for them!

    1. Thank you Reni, I’ve worn this one before and knew that everything would work. I almost didn’t get this jacket because I just didn’t need another jacket. In the end, I’m glad I did because it is one of my most distinctive pieces and looks so modern. The Narcissus are starting to bloom here! XOXO Terri
