Style Imitating Art (Roundup): Playing Cards by Clementine Hunter

"...And I have other sheep that are not of this fold.  I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice.  So there will be one flock, one shepherd.  For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life that I may take it up again.  No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord.  I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again.  This charge I have received from my Father."  John 10:16-18

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 Use

The current art selection is Playing Cards by Clementine Hunter.  

The Co-Hosts

Salazar  chose "the top and culottes for their colors and the lace trim of the top gives it a "folksy" vibe" and used her neckerchief to pull in the other colors of the artwork.  Nice job, Salazar!  See her Folksy post.

Daenel noted:  "almost all of the colors in the inspiration painting [are] reflected in my top, which almost never happens with me."  Haha, you look great all of the time regardless!


Michelle "focused on the yellows, greens, and blues.  These capris are about the only yellow item of clothing I have.  So they became an immediate necessity for the outfit."  Plus, Michelle credits our Style Imitating Art challenges for encouraging her to go through her mending pile(!), see details at Style Imitating Art - Motivating Another Clothing Repair.


Kezzie went with an outfit she'd submitted awhile back, but thought it was the perfect representation of this artwork as well.  Gosh, I know, right?  The trees and blue skies!

Lesley's outfit was selected because it reflected the blues and greens of the painting so well.   The ladies on Jodie's blog have such nice, colorful footwear!

Terri is a retired art teacher, so she notices details many of the rest of us would probably miss.  Her dress employs the colors of the artwork, in digital form, plus she accented her outfit with the pristine white of the tablecloth in her handbag and sandals.  See her complete post.
