Daenel T {living outside the stacks} #StyleImitatingArt


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.


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


Flower by Daenel T {living outside the stacks}

I took this photo about seven years ago. At the time, I was interested in pulling colors from images, so I thought this would be a fun picture to share for our challenge this week.

What do you think you’ll wear? I can’t wait to see.

How cute is this dress? I knew it’d be perfect for this week’s inspiration piece because of the colorful floral print and the bold yellow background. I like the different types of flowers and how they look hand drawn.

Because of the bold pattern, I kept my jewelry and shoes very simple. I did, however, play around with my makeup and go bold with my lipstick: purple.

I think next time I style it, I’ll wear some funky colored shoes and a neutral cardigan. What do you think?


Send a picture of your Style Imitating Art inspired outfit to me {} by Tuesday, 4 June. She’ll share the submissions on her blog on Wednesday, 5 June.

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.

Now go play in your closet,
