Salazar’s WorldPosted: March 12, 2012
It was Jess’ turn to pick the inspiration for Style Imitating Art, and she picked “Christina’s World” by Andrew Wyeth:
I actually put together a different outfit using solid pieces, which would have been a better fit, but in the end I went with this drop-waist polka dot dress instead. Maybe I was subconsciously influenced by Days of Heaven (the only Terrence Malick film I could sit through, not because it’s the shortest but also because it actually has a plot), which this painting always reminds me of. Although Days of Heaven is set closer to 1900’s than 1920’s. So I don’t know. Maybe I simply like the silhouette.
This week we’ve got a couple more bloggers joining the fun, so head over to Jess’ to see how they interpreted the painting!
