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 art selection is Tapestry by Sam Gilliam.  To find out more and see more of his artwork see Wikiart.

Fair Trade
The Curator
This selection was curated by me, because I wanted to find a fabric sample, searched for tapestry and, well, you can see how that turned out!  

My Look
I knew I wanted to choose saturated colors that are next to each other on the color wheel--either blue/green or red/orange as those depicted in the artwork.  Both combinations were pulled from the closet and you can see which direction it went.

The Sundance catalog Sera top in the color "lagoon" hasn't appeared on the blog, yet, and it's a recent purchase.  While I'm not usually a fan of camo and leopard together, I thought this outfit could use a little breaking up and the leopard belt has an almost gold background.  I added my wide gold bangle and other gold jewelry to balance it out.  I've had the tights for a couple of years and have never worn them.  Why?  I ordered what I thought was olive and this is the color that came, so wasn't sure what to wear them with.  For as much as nothing matches with these pieces, I think everything "goes."  I like that the tights make the shortness of the skirt less of an issue.  This outfit is very comfortable to wear.

The day I took these photos, it was chilly and drizzling.  This abandoned building that I've used as background before has a bit of a roof overhang, fortunately!
