Hi! Welcome to another round of Style Imitating Art. I hope y’all had a great weekend. We did. The Hubs and I went to Texas to visit the grandchildren and to celebrate the life of his first wife, Vanessa, who passed away from cancer. It was a wonderful weekend of love and laughter with family.

INSPIRATION ART WORK

This week’s inspiration piece is a painting by English painter Kate Bunce. Kate Bunce was associated with the Arts and Crafts movement, but she was also influenced by the pre-Raphaelites. You can see both styles in the painting. Salazar wrote that she thought “the colors may be a little spring-y, but that’s the challenge, right?” Yes, it is!

THE CURATOR

This week’s inspiration piece was curated by Salazar at 14 Shades of Grey. Salazar is a “…a stagnating packet of crisps {context} trying to change by adding more colors to my wardrobe and my life.”

It’s not too late to join us! Details below. What do you think you’ll wear? I can’t wait to see!

MY LOOK

For some reason, this challenge was really difficult for me. I don’t know if it was the colors in the painting that I was having a hard time with or what, so I chose to focus on the floral pattern.

I thought the intense color of the florals in my dress harkened back to the intense gaze of the musician in the portrait. They also hinted at the florals in the background of the painting. I chose a tassel necklace and gold hoop earrings to round out my outfit because they kind of resemble the muscian’s jewelry.

My shoes are a faux suede but I thought they kind of looked like the velvet in the musician’s robe. I’m assuming it’s velvet…
