Lots of Roses for Salvadore Dali’s “The Hallucingentic Matador”

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 her blog submissions.

This Week’s Inspirational Image

Shelbee gave us a challenge and picked “The Halllucingentic Matador” by Salvador Dali.

My Take

Sometimes my eyes zero in on one specific item. This time it was the roses, along with the red and green draped fabric. Could this be because we have been adding some new roses to our garden this year? Who knows but I did have an idea of precisely what I was going to wear for this one.

It is my asymmetrical tunic that I made a couple of years ago from a Burda pattern. The digital print (from Joanne’s fabric) is from Joanne’s Fabric that I picked up a few years ago and was designed by Nicolle Miller.

The print is a graphic design using cross-hatching and roses. I also like that there is some green represented in it as well.

I can wear this top with either black or white bottoms and it is one of my favorite summer wear. I’ve been rearranging my closet for summer and this top was one of the first things I brought out from storage.

We were having trouble with lighting and the above photo doesn’t do this print justice. However, I love the side view so wanted to include it. The painting for today does have a lot of black in it and black is my preferred color (or lack of color), which I wear my tunic with. If you notice, I’m showing three different shots of this top but on three different occasions. That is how much I wear this one!

I think that finishes me for this one. If you have not done so already, please send your ideas to Shelbee at shelbeeontheedge@gmail.com by tomorrow.

That’s it for me and I will see you next time!

  1. Terri, this top is so great! I really like how you zoned in on the roses and the red and green and kept you outfit simple allowing the gorgeous rose print to stand out. I can’t decide which I like better with it, the white or the black pants, both really allow the print to pop in different wonderful ways. I am curious how this tunic would look over a long slim black maxi skirt now!
