Style Imitating Art Inspiration: Gumball II by Charles Bell

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 me.


Bell, C. (1973, January 01). Gumball II, 1973 – Charles Bell.

I chose this image because it reminds me of being a child and begging my mom for a quarter so I could get some gum then hoping that I wouldn’t get the dreaded gumball. Did you have a favorite flavor?


Make sure you stop by and visit my co-host, 14 Shades of Grey. You’ll definitely want to see her interpretation as well.


Send a picture of your Style Imitating Art inspired outfit to me at by Tuesday, 15 December and I’ll share the submissions on my blog on Wednesday, 16 December.

You don’t have to have a blog to join, you can share your images on Instagram as well! Just tag 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.


This will be our last Style Imitating Art for 2020. I know… This is the time that we like to take time to relax and hang out with friends and family and, well, just enjoy the season. And given what 2020 has been, I think we could all use a bit of a break to decompress, don’t you? And, speaking of taking a break, did you notice that we are now two?

Kim has decided to step back from her co-hosting duties to focus on her health and settling in her new home. So that means that Salazar and I are looking for a new host… If you’re interested in art and fashion, and keep to a regular posting schedule, contact us via email before the New Year.

Now go play in your closet,
