Weekly Capsule 12.1: Spring Window

I’d put together an entirely different outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by the “Spring” stained glass window designed by John La Farge, using this navy floral dress with my white button-up shirt layered underneath. However, when I put it on, it doesn’t feel very me at all – the old me, about two years ago, wouldn’t think twice about it, but now it seems too fussy, too schoolgirl. So I tried something else, and put that dress away for my niece when she’s older. Really, I’m too grown-up for it now.

That has been my challenge with SIA lately – with the more intricate inspiration pieces, I always struggle to find an outfit that both mimics the painting and still stays true to my new, more minimalist style. In the end, this is what I came up with – the floral tunic and the shoes are to reflect the stained glass, and there is a bit of blue in it as well, hence the jeans (a truer blue may be more accurate, but I prefer the relaxed fit of the boyfriend jeans with the tunic), and I added the necklace for the wings. The end result may not be as close as I’d like, but it’s something I’m happy to wear, and that’s more important.

    You did great Salazar! Good job! I still can’t help but admire that stained glass art. I’m sure it’s even better looking in person.
