About Style Imitating Art
Welcome to this edition of Style Imitating Art!  

Style Imitating Art is hosted bi-weekly be Salazar~14 Shades of Grey, Daenel~Living Outside the Stacks and me.  Style Imitating Art challenges us to look to creating an outfit using art as an inspiration.  In addition to colors, you may also want to look at textures, mood, genre and style.  There are no "wrong" outfits and  you don't need to be literal.

The Inspiration
This week's selection is Woodpecker Tapestry by William Morris.

The Curator
This week's curator is Salazar from 14 Shades of Grey.  

My Look
Hey, friends!  This outfit is a throwback look from two years ago!  (Original post:  Rust Pants and Leopard Cardigan.)  I had planned what I wanted to wear for this artwork, but my combined time and energy got away from me.  I was all set to take photos yesterday, but ended up sleeping the entire afternoon! 

The rich orange color of the fruit reminded me of these pants and the swirly blue leaf design around the bottom of the trunk made me want to try this shirt with them:

Purchased in September from Soft Surroundings (similar)

The throwback outfit combines my Eileen Fisher lantern pants, Lucky Brand sleeveless top and (thrifted) leopard cardigan.  While the cardigan may not look like it belongs with our inspiration, I still think it fits because the small print emulates the intricate woven pattern of the featured tapestry.
