Young Girl ReadingPosted: May 16, 2016
As soon as I saw this week’s SIA inspiration, Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s “A Young Girl Reading“, I knew that I would wear this top, since it’s one of the few yellow pieces that I have in my closet, and the lace trims and large collars can mimic the ruff and the bell sleeves of the girl’s dress. The dusky pink/lavender tone of her ribbons and of the cushion behind her is another matter though – I didn’t want to wear my pink skirt, since it’s too girly and I didn’t want to pair a girly skirt with a girly top.
In the end, I decided to wear my pink scarf as a kind of headband, and keep the rest of the outfit simple. I don’t usually wear headband or headscarf, but this adds a “1940’s/1950’s casual wear” to the outfit, which I like. Plus it’s super convenient in covering up second-day hair 😛
And of course, I had to recreate the pose:
