Join Us for Style Imitating Art {living outside the stacks}

Hi, this is just a short post to introduce next week’s Style Imitating Art inspiration piece. Style Imitating Art {aka SIA} is hosted by Jen {Librarian for Life and Style}, Salazar {14 Shades of Grey}, and me. Every other Monday, one of us curates an art piece to use as style inspiration for the following week {host outfits are posted on the following Monday, with participant outfits posted on Wednesday}.

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!

You can learn more about Kate Bunce here.


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.”

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


Everyone’s invited to participate! Send a picture of your Style Imitating Art inspired outfit to Jen at by Tuesday, 9 October. I’ll share the submissions on my blog on Wednesday, 10 October.

You don’t have to be a blogger, a photographer, or an instagrammer to join! You just have to love clothes.

Now go play in your closet,
