The GoldfinchPosted: March 30, 2016
Even though I managed four books this month (or maybe precisely because of that), I was having a hard time deciding which book to interpret as an outfit. At first I thought I could do something with Kiki’s Delivery Service (a black dress, something red, and a cat would suffice), but in the end I didn’t want to be too literal about it, so I went with The Goldfinch instead – or more exactly, the painting behind the book. Believe it or not, before reading the book, I didn’t know this was an actual painting. It certainly looks very modern compared to other 17th-centuring paintings, doesn’t it?
I interpreted the painting with shades of gold and brown, and used the textures of my top and my cardigan to mimic the texture in the painting. A pair of gray jeans would’ve been perfect, but since I don’t have gray jeans, my light-washed blue would have to suffice. Top it off with a necklace to mimic the chain in the painting, and I’m done!
