Welcome to Style Imitating Art. I hope you’re visit means you’re planning to join us, because we’d definitely love to have you…

ABOUT STYLE IMITATING ART

Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar {14 Shades of Grey}, Kim {Fierce Fashion Blog}, 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. And that Wednesday, the curator shares all of the submissions on her blog.

THE CURATOR

This week’s image was chosen by Salazar {14 Shades of Grey}.

INSPIRATION ART WORK

03_salazar_degas

The Little Fourteen-Year Old Dancer; Artist: Edgar Degas (French, Paris 1834–1917 Paris); Founder: Cast by A. A. Hébrard (Paris); Date: 1922 (cast), 2018 (tutu); Culture: French, Paris; Medium: Partially tinted bronze, cotton tarlatan, silk satin, and wood.

Salazar chose this sculpture “…for its texture and neutral color scheme. The ballet theme can be a great source of inspiration as well.”

STYLING IDEAS

When I first looked at this statute, all I saw bronze. But once I started to look a bit closer, I started to see clay, moss, gray, and beige. There’s also a smidge of white and black. And so much texture: the fabric, the wood, and the bronze. And, like Salazar said, the ballet theme is another source of inspiration.
