ABOUT STYLE IMITATING ART

Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar {14 Shades of Gray}, 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 outfit. My main tip for participating is not to just look at the colors but look at the textures, think about complimentary colors, etc. In other words, you don’t have to be literal in your interpretation. It’s all about looking at the items in your closet in new and creative ways — mixing colors and patterns and just having fun.

THE CURATOR

This week’s image is hosted by Kim from Fierce Fashion Blog. Kim is a fifty something style blogger with an eye for color and texture.

INSPIRATION ART WORK

The Siesta by Paul Gaugin

Kim chose this piece because she “wanted to capture an attitude of ‘dog days of summer.'”

I think the image captures it perfectly. See how the women are kinda lounging around? And you can see the sun shining down on the grass? So much light and life. I also like the mixed prints in the woman’s outfit. So much opportunity for color and pattern play in this inspiration piece.

What will you wear? I can’t wait to see.
