Welcome to Style Imitating Art. I hope you’re 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.


Vintage Fabric from Annie Lauries

This week’s inspiration comes from a vintage fabric piece that I bought when The Hubs and I lived in Missouri. I’d originally purchased the fabric to recover a bench that I had in my closet. Well, the fabric piece, while a decent size, is too small to recover the bench. So now it’s stored in a drawer until I find something to do with it. Kim suggested a pillow and I love love love that idea!!

That being said, the fabric is absolutely beautiful and substantial. I was drawn to the bright, saturated colors, and the floral print. It’s kind of bohemian, a bit mid-century, and kind of modern at the same time.


The main colors in this fabric swatch are burgundy, red, gold, and brown. There are also accents of green and beige. I think this inspiration piece lends itself to embroidered pieces.


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 me {} by Tuesday, 25 February. I’ll share the submissions on her blog on Wednesday, 26 February.

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,
