Welcome to this edition of Style Imitating Art!  Gulp.  Did you realize this post was supposed to go
up on Monday?  Yep, this new co-host messed up the dates.  Will you forgive me if I say I have a lot going on and am currently out of town as this post goes up?  I hope so!   If that doesn't work, I'm going to use this quote:  

I ran out of gas! I had a flat tire! I didn’t have enough money for cab fare! My tux didn’t come back from the cleaners! An old friend came in from out of town! Someone stole my car There was an earthquake, a terrible flood! Locusts! It wasn’t my fault! I swear to God! --Jake Elwood

And, for the record, if I look a little rough in these photos, the day I took them I had gotten four hours of sleep.  Yawn!  Now, to the business at hand...

About Style Imitating Art
Style Imitating Art challenges us to look to create an outfit using art as inspiration.  In addition to colors, you may also want to look at textures, mood, style, genre.  There are no "wrong" outfits, and you don't need to be literal.

The Inspiration
Today's inspiration is a photograph taken by Salazar at 14 Shades of Grey.  It's of the Ali Ibn Hamzeh Shrine in Shiraz,  Iran.  Read more about it by clicking the link.

It includes green, gold, white, black, stars, filigree, crystals, and even what appears to be red/orange.  What elements did you, or would you, select?

The Curator
This week's art was curated by Salazar at 14 Shades of Grey.  She's selected it because, "I've just gotten back from a trip to Iran and was so impressed with all the intricate mirror tiles at this shrine, so I knew I had to feature it in SIA. It would be interesting to see how everybody interprets its glittering dome!"

My Look
The outfit today took a little bit of thought.  I've featured a truer, darker green more frequently, so didn't want to go that route.  I was after a reflective look and this is how it turned out.  I gravitated toward the bright, light greens, reflective white and added rhinestones and crystals in all of my jewelry.  The criss-cross of the sandal ties emulate the mirror shards of the dome.   The acid-green cardigan was thrifted, the shirt is chartreuse which you've seen at the recent Style Imitating Art:  Bollinger Covered Bridge.  And, although I'm all about white jeans, I wasn't sure if I was pushing it to wear my white skirt, but it has been in the upper 80s℉ (27℃) and when I recently went to Orlando, it hit 90℉ (32℃)--too warm for this early in this season.

Please take a minute to visit my co-hosts Daenel and hop over to the Roundup at Salazar's.
