Redouté’s Roses for Style Imitating Art

Hello and welcome to a new round of Style Imitation Art. This is my turn again.

So Before We Get Started-What Is Style Imitating Art?

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 inspirational 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.

Why Did I Pick This Work of Art?

I got an email for my rose company a few days ago that the two roses I order had been shipped. Yes, gardening season is seriously starting to happen!

With that email, I started thinking about the two Rédoute rose books that I have had in my library since my mother gave them to me all those years ago. She gave me my books during my 30’s, which was our earlier rose-growing craze (we have one rose left from all those years ago). But we are not back with our rose addiction.

So, for this round, I picked roses of four different colors from Rédoute’s work. I hope they inspire so beautiful spring fashion. Aren’t we just a little tired of how long winter lingered this year?

Join Us!

Next Monday Salazar, Shelbee, and I will publish our interpretations of this work.

I hope this inspires you to create a look from your closet and that you will join us. Send me your picture of your SIA-inspired outfit along with a small blurb on how you were inspired to by Tuesday, April 11th. I’ll share the submissions on my blog on Wednesday, April 12th.

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, @14shadesofgrey, and @shelbeeontheedge.

Hope to see you there!
