Starry Night Over The RhonePosted: July 2, 2012
It’s another week of Style Imitating Art, and once again I’m impressed with how everybody’s outfit turned out. The inspiration painting is Starry Night over the Rhone by Van Gogh:
First, we have Vivienne of Thrifted Shift, whose bling emulates the “starry” part:
Next we have the awesome Pao of Project Minima, who is a starry night of her own:
Then it’s lovely Jess of Animated Cardigan. She happened to pick the same silhouette as me – I think this is why we’re co-creators:
And here’s me – this dress is another piece I just added to my 30×30 line-up in place of the Old Navy pink jersey dress. It feels a bit like cheating, but I’ve already worn the Old Navy dress, and in this weather, when you can’t add layers, there’s only one way you can wear it.
Having clothes made at a tailor’s may be a little time-consuming, but I like it because you’ll get the piece exactly how you want it (pockets!) Plus in Vietnam it’s not that expensive either – this dress costs me about $20.
