Le Quai Saint Michel Et Notre DamePosted: May 6, 2019
For this week’s SIA, inspired by Maximilien Luce‘s “Le Quai Saint Michel Et Notre Dame”, I struggled a bit because although there are a lot of colors in the painting, there is not one major color that stands out that I could use as the basis for an outfit. In the end, I picked out the two colors that jump out at me the most (or the two that are easiest for me to recreate :P) – blue and yellow – and went from there.
Luckily, I just got this dress made by a tailor (I got frustrated with trying to find a nice shirt dress in store, so I just had it made), and keeping with the blue-and-yellow theme, I paired it with yellow accessories and blue oxfords. I think the delicate stripe pattern can reflect the brush strokes in the painting too… can you see it? Or is it just in my head? Oh well, I like the dress anyway.
