Style Imitating Art (Roundup): Autumn by Rouardo Manet

Welcome to the Style Imitating Art Roundup!  Style Imitating Art is hosted by me, Daenel~Living Outside the Stacks and Salazar~14 Shades of Grey.  Every two weeks, we select a piece of art.  After
that, it is up to us (and you!) to make an outfit inspired by the artwork.  Let's see what today's participants have selected!

About Style Imitating Art
In addition to colors, you may also want to look at textures, mood, style, genre or contrasts.  There are no "wrong" outfits, and you don't need to be literal.

The Curator
This week's inspiration piece was curated by me.  Fierce Fashion Blog is where I like to add some refinement to edgier looks.  At least that's my goal!

Inspiration Artwork

This Autumn (Study of Mery Laurent) by Edouardo Manet was selected because I wanted an autumn theme and loved the composition.

The Co-Hosts

Daenel selected the perfect mix of brown and floral with her blouse.  She made fabulous use of a top extender, too.  See her Style Imitating Art details. 

Salazar is recovering from the flu, so used this outfit from a couple of weeks ago making use of the blue and brown.  Take care, Salazar!  See her Style Imitating Art details.


Sweet Leslie is joining us with the background blue as her base color.  The chunky knit cardigan is a hand-me-down from her mom's 90 yr. old friend!  Leslie added yellow shoes to emulate the flowers.  

In a rare moment Jodie is going monochromatic in brown-Ha!  You can tell this is a throw-back because it's doubtful she'll need to bundle up this winter with her move to Arizona!

My Look

Even though I'm all about color, I love a good monochromatic look!  I used brown and added texture with the scarf, collar and if you expand a little--the shoes and handbag, too.

Thank you to this edition's participants!  Salazar, Daenel and I appreciate you taking the time to think about the artwork and send along your submissions.  You truly make this fun!
