Green On GreenPosted: June 4, 2012
Sorry for the late post, but I want to give everybody more time to send in their outfit photos for this week’s Style Imitating Art. Is it bad form to take a break from the 30×30 challenge when I’ve got just one outfit under my belt? Well, I have to, because today is my turn to host. The inspiration painting is Still Life with Asparagus by Adriaen Coorte:
I actually wore this outfit last week, on the one day it was cool, almost fall-like (of course, by the time I got around to taking photos, the sun was out again and I still sweated like a pig.) Like I said, I picked this specific painting because I have a shirt in that exact color. It proved to be a little difficult to photograph, because our garden is green everywhere as well, but I can’t complain about that 🙂
Shirt: Vietnamese shop, Pants: thrifted, Flats: Payless
Belt: borrowed from a Target skirt, Bracelet: self-made
Let’s see what my fellow bloggers come up with, shall we? First up is Pao of Project Minima. I love how she always makes sure her photos match the inspiration painting:
Then it’s Rebekah of From the Mixed-up Files. Isn’t that an adorable dress?
Here’s my lovely co-creator Jess of Animated Cardigan:
And last but not least, our awesome guest-host, Vivienne of Thrifted Shift:
I’m so happy to see how much this little idea of ours has grown. And remember, if you want to host, or simply want to suggest a painting, shoot me and/or Jess an email! Thank you!
