Empire Inspired

For this week’s SIA, I took the inspiration from both of the Empire-style dresses in the photo. My mustard jeans are to mimic the yellow dress, my white shirt and striped sweatshirt are to mimic the white dress with the striped spencer jacket (I know, the stripes and dots are green, but I don’t have anything green-striped), and finally, my boots are to mimic the embroidered shoes and the paisley shawl (the appliques on my sweatshirt are a nod to the paisley too). When I first put this together, I was afraid that the pieces are a bit too random, but they ended up going together pretty well, even if I do say so myself.

Don’t forget to check Daenel’s blog on Wednesday for the other interpretations of these lovely dresses. Also, this is the last SIA challenge of the year, as next week is Christmas and then there’s New Year (where did 2018 go?!), but we’ll be back the first Monday of January. See you then!

    It’s so cool how you pieced together your outfit! You’ve included a little of everything, making it a well rounded SIA choice. Nice job!

    I know, right?! This year went by so fast. I think the older we get, the faster the years seem to go.
    Thanks for allowing me to be a part of the SIA challenges, Salazar. It was a blast! Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with next year!

  2. I like how your seemingly random pieces came together to form an outfit. Those shoes are everything!!
