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

Style Imitating Art is hosted biweekly by Daenel~Living Outside the Stacks, Salazar~14 Shades of Grey and me.  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
The current artwork selection is The Siesta by Paul Gauguin.



The Curator
This selection was curated by me, because I wanted to depict the lazy dog days of summer and I thought this artwork had that feeling.  There is lots to work with here, from the outfits the women are wearing, to the overall mood.

My Look

I was drawn to the woman in orange and the woman in the pink blouse, as well as, the color of the floor boards.  What I chose was less of a comfort zone for me.  I decided on a more literal look using the woman in the foreground.  

You may remember this Sundance Catalog dress from my post Friday Favorites #4.  Since it was on the short side, I made a slip extender from bits and bobs that were lying around.  Upon seeing these photos, I strongly dislike the straight edge and the stiffness of the muslin (there's scalloped lace, but it's on top of the fabric) and immediately ordered a lace-edged slip extender from Amazon.  The scarf has a lot of fabric and it's been exclusively used for a pareo, but I liked the colors with the dress, especially bringing out the orange.  The orange was also added with the necklace and sandals.
