Style Imitating Art: The First Anniversary

Today is the one-year anniversary of Style Imitating Art. Can you believe that exactly one year ago Jess and I put our heads together and came up with this crazy idea to dress like paintings? In fact I didn’t remember it myself until Jess reminded me. Anyway, I’m sure I’m speaking for Jess as well when I say we’ve had so much fun doing this, and we’re looking forward to a lot more challenges to come. Thank you so much for participating!

So without further ado, let’s get to this week’s inspiration, “Prinzessin Victoria Louise Poppy” by Colleen Parker. It’s such a perfect painting for spring, isn’t it? I know spring may still be far away for some of you guys, but I picked it because I thought we could also use the reminder:

First we have a new participant, Kristina of Eccentric Owl, in a beautiful Valentine’s Day look:


Next up is Madeline. She looks so pretty in her floral print, doesn’t she?


Jen of Librarian for Life and Style brings some edge to the inspiration painting by pairing her pink shirt with a cargo vest:


Noelle of Tilly’s Notions is gorgeous in a lace dress and spring-appropriate cardigan and headscarf:


My lovely co-creator Jess has the perfect skirt and t-shirt combo:


And finally, me. Full outfit post to come tomorrow, as usual:

I’m going back to stuffing my face with Lunar New Year food. See you!

ETA: We have a late entry from Pao of Project Minima, who takes her cue from the 60’s vibe of the poppies:

  2. I LOVE yours! It is so, so pretty. That cardigan is gorgeous, and I really want a white skirt like yours! I really liked this SIA picture; it was totally up my alley, being a flower and all. 😉 Happy Anniversary to SIA!
