Style Imitating Art: Bouquet of Wild Flowers by Odilon Redon

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


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.


This week’s image was chosen by by Kim of Fierce Fashion Blog.


Redon, O. (1970, January 01). Bouquet of Wild Flowers, c.1900 – Odilon Redon.

Kim chose this inspiration piece because of “…the bold colors and “just picked” look of the bouquet.  Plus, the coloring gives us lots of fall options.” Not only can you use the colors for inspiration, but there are plenty of textural options as well. And don’t forget about Autumnal patterns like plaid and floral.


My sister texted me on Saturday with the following message: “What are you doing?”

I texted her back: “Same thing we do every night, Pinky. Try to take over the world.”

My sister and I routinely talk to each other in TV. Our kids think we’re weird. We think we’re funny. Do you and your siblings have a weird way of communicating?



I decided to wear this after changing clothes half a million times on Saturday. The problem was I couldn’t decide whether I was hot or cold. Inside, my house was freezing {no, the AC wasn’t on}, but it was warm outside. What gives? So, I decided to put on this lightweight 3/4 sleeve sweater and call it a day. And jeans are always appropriate. I wasn’t warm but I was comfortable enough. And the colors fit the theme…

I know I have a hard time regulating my temperature but I hope this isn’t a harbinger of things to come because I’m not sure how I’m going to deal with the extreme temperature changes.

Feel free to shop my look:

Earrings – Nickel and Suede

Sweater – Similar

Jeans – Laurie Felt

Ankle Boots – Similar


Make sure you stop by and visit my co-hosts at 14 Shades of Grey, and Fierce Fashion Blog. You’ll definitely want to see their interpretations as well.


Next week’s inspiration piece will be posted on Monday, 28 September. Send a picture of your Style Imitating Art inspired outfit to Kim at by Tuesday, 6 October and she’ll share the submissions on her blog on Wednesday, 7 October.

You don’t have to have a blog to join, you can share your images on Instagram as well! Just tag Kim, Salazar, and me or use the hashtag #StyleImitatingArt so we know you’re there. We’d love to see how you interpret the inspiration piece.

Now go play in your closet,
