Style Imitating Art (Roundup): Tapestry by Sam Gilliam

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

Fair Trade

The current art selection is Tapestry by Sam Gilliam.

The Co-Hosts

Salazar used the textured look of the painting and used her sweater and cords to reflect that, as well as, their colors.  She selected her most colorful socks to emulate the rich colors of the painting.  I 'm a huge fan of texture and think she did a fantastic job!  See Salazar's entire post.

Daenel went for colorful stripes that echo the painting.  It looks like the artwork was selected specifically for her cozy sweater dress.  So nice!  See Daneal's entire post.

My Look
