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 Ciclotrama 36 by Brazilian artist Janaina Mello Landini.




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

My Look
I had a devil of a time coming up with an outfit for this week's Style Imitating Art.  In a s-t-r-e-t-c-h of  inspiration, it seemed like the dark brown design in this skirt resembled a twisted rope.  As a matter of fact, when I put the skirt together, I used that design element to keep the fabric all going in the same direction as I was sewing it as the flowers seem to be going every which way.  Since our tree inspiration is bare, I used that as a jumping off point for cooler/cold weather and decided to style this lightweight skirt with fall in mind, adding a long cardigan and booties.

While it wasn't planned, I love how you can see all of the tree branches in the background to emulate our artwork.

We just moved into our new house on Thursday!  These photos are taken from our side yard/driveway into our backyard (we have a corner lot).  The wardrobe boxes were unpacked Saturday, in time for a photo shoot on Sunday.  As you can imagine, we're wandering around trying to remember where we've unpacked things in the kitchen and adjusting to a different layout of space--you know how things fit perfectly into a former house, but are out of place in a new one.   We are so much enjoying have the space of our own home again!

Join Us
...There's still time!  Please consider joining us, the more the merrier!  You don't have to be literal, as a matter of fact, some of the most interesting interpretations are not literal!  Send a picture of your Style Imitating Art inspired outfit to Salazar at 14shadesofgrey@gmail.com by tomorrow, Tuesday, October 20.  She will share the round up photos on her blog Wednesday, October 21.
