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}.


Pocket flask {metropolitan museum of art} public access

Pocket Flask {The MET, public domain}

The blown pattern-molded glass Pocket Flask were made in the U.S. between 1800 and 1860.

You can learn more about the Pocket Flask by clicking here.


This week’s inspiration piece was curated by me. I chose the Pocket Flask because I like the colors of the different flasks, but it was the patterns that really intrigued me. I had a friend who used to blow glass and I just remember watching her and her husband twirling the glass to shape it and it really was the coolest thing ever.

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 me at by Tuesday, 6 November. I’ll share the submissions on my blog on Wednesday, 7 November.

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,
