Homage To The SquarePosted: April 23, 2012
I took a break from the 30 Days of Dresses for this week’s Style Imitating Art. This is an easy one, since the inspiration, Homage to the Square: Blue, White, Grey by Josef Albers (who, incidentally, was my friend Debbi’s great-uncle), has all of my favorite colors and the clean lines that translate well into an outfit.
The striped shirt is a no-brainer, and even though my shorts are more mint than blue, it’s close enough in the color wheel. The only part in the painting that stumped me a bit is the silvery grey, which I tried to represent in my flats, but I felt it was not enough. Then I remembered my glass pendant I got from Venice – it not only has the right color, but the right shape too. It’s the perfect finishing touch.
Here’s Jess’ interpretation – I love the mixing of stripes. And I have serious skirt envy too 🙂
Shirt: Forever21, Shorts: Express (thrifted & dyed by me)
Flats: thrifted, Necklace: gift shop in Venice (it’s the zodiac symbol of my sign, Leo)
