Weekly Capsule 14.1: Polka Dots & StripesPosted: April 6, 2015 | |
For SIA, I’m usually a stickler for staying true to the original work’s colors. However, for this week’s challenge, inspired by Crystal Liu‘s “The Flowers” series, I decided to go for something more graphically reminiscent of the paintings – with the soft lines and dots – rather than sticking close to the black, white, and gold color scheme. Which is why my outfit is more black, white, and blue. But come on, my polka dot flower brooch is the perfect interpretation of the original paintings and the perfect complement for the outfit, even if I do say so myself.
There’s still time to send me your outfit photos and/or post if you want to participate in this week’s SIA. The round-up will go live tomorrow, so be sure to check back!
Shirt: Mango, Skirt: local shop, Shoes: hand-me-down, Brooch: vintage
P/S: I’m pretty sure this shirt and skirt will be in my Top 10 pick. The skirt is a no-brainer – pleats, polka dots, and pockets! – but the shirt is very “me” as well, simple and streamlined with a quirky detail (the round collar instead of the usual folded down one you see on button-up shirts.)
