All The Patterns

I had a different outfit in mind for this week’s SIA, inspired by Charles Demuth’s “Spring“, but at the last moment I decided against it, because while it may copy some of the colors of the painting, it doesn’t capture the many patterns of the fabric samples. So I chose to a more casual outfit with all of the patterns instead – there are three patterns here (stripes, polka dots, and leopard print) – four if you count the floral print on my owl pin – and I keep the colors minimal to avoid being a walking fabric store. I’m happy with this – it captures the spirit of the painting, if not the exact colors and patterns.

Don’t forget to stop by Erin’s blog by Wednesday (a day late, since she has a pre-scheduled post on Tuesday) to see other interpretations of this painting!

    I think that you did a fine job in interpreting this SIA painting, Salazar. I thought of trying to interpret more than one pattern as well for mine, but decided at the last minute to just stick with just the one. You’ll see it… Wednesday, I see, as you mentioned about Erin’s round up post being a day late?

    Anyway, I also realized that I don’t have that many different kinds of patterns in my closet (most of my shirts are pretty plain), so I decided to just pick the one.

    Also, love the black and white theme that you have going on here in your outfit. And of course, your owl pin adds a nice touch to complete the whole look. 🙂

  2. Super cute! And yes, great minds think alike… our outfits together would make an awesome mash-up! 🙂
