Welcome to the first Style Imitating Art of 2020! I’m so happy to have you here. If you’re a regular, you’ll notice a few changes… I’ve created a new badge. I wanted something eye catching and complimentary to my blog. I created it using one of the templates available at PicMonkey. I’ve also added a new STYLING IDEAS section beneath the Inspiration Art Work area. I plan to use this section to give you styling ideas. You don’t have to follow my suggestions, I just thought it’d be fun to share thoughts on how to interpret the inspiration piece.


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 Kim at Fierce Fashion Blog.

Damunt de tu només les flors by Carles Delclaux Is

Kim chose this fabric art because she “…like{s} the use of hearts, as they are evocative of Valentine’s day.  I think the small swatches of plaid are fun, too.” You can find out more about the art work here.


Kim already mentioned the fun little plaid swatches, but look at all of those hearts! They’re in fiery oranges and reds. And purples. Do you see them? If you’re not into the hearts, you can play up the leaves, the stripes, and the abstract shapes. What about colors? Hmmm, purple and red are intense together. They make me think love and passion. The golds and lavenders are soft and feminine. And I think the blues are happy. So think about the mood you want to evoke. If it’s cold and rainy, do you want to wear bright and happy colors to offset the dreariness?


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.


Send a picture of your Style Imitating Art inspired outfit to Kim {} by Tuesday, 28 January. She’ll share the submissions on her blog on Wednesday, 29 January.

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,
