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 a a late 18th-early 19th century embroidery sample.

The Curator
This selection was curated by Daenel at Living Outside the Stacks.  It is lovely embroidery with a wonderful sheen to it.  The background fabric seems to have quite a bit of texture to it, as well.

My Look
My look is quite literal.  This Tobi Thermal top is one of the tops that was generously gifted to me by Caite & Kyla.  One of my personal fashion rules is I don't wear black--so this is most likely the only time you'll see me in it.  The top is waffle weave and is a size small.  It fits perfectly around, but the sleeves are snug.  Looking at the model, it seems as if it should fit bigger around than it does on me, which should correct the snugness.  It has a soft v neckline.  I was debating whether to go with white jeans or olive colored pants.  I forget I even have these pants, so decided to pull them out.  Part of my "forgetfulness" is because they are full length.  I'll have to remember them a lot more in this cooler climate.  The scarf was added for pulling out the colors of the embroidery thread, adding color around my face and extra warmth.  I decided to wear leopard booties, 'cause I was tired of my brown ones and I didn't care for my Docs with the outfit.
