Feather And AsparagusPosted: May 28, 2012
First, a quick word on the “feather” portion of the post: this is my attempt to bring some interest to a simple shirt-and-shorts outfit, by adding a colorful pair of sneakers and a statement belt. I would’ve liked it better if the belt and the shoes aren’t fighting each other though.
T-shirt: Walmart, Shorts: tailored
Belt: Vietnamese shop, Sneakers: Payless
Now on to the “asparagus” – it is the inspiration for next week’s Style Imitating Art, Still Life with Asparagus by Adriaen Coorte. I’ve always been a fan of the Dutch/Flemish still life paintings of 17th and 18th century, but most of them have such an abundance of colors and details, which would be near impossible to recreate in an outfit. So when I came across this simple yet striking piece, I decided to pick it for SIA (and also because I have a shirt that color :P)
Send me your outfit photos by Sunday, June 3. Have fun!
