Le Quai Saint Michel Et Notre Dame

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.

Don’t forget to check Kim’s blog on Wednesday to see other outfits inspired by this painting!

  1. You were so, so smart to have your dress custom made! I’m frustrated right now trying to find a beach dress that is also suitable for dining out… I like that you chose blue and yellow. I didn’t figure the painting would be so difficult!

  2. I really like your dress, whom ever made it did very well!! It reminds me of a nice carefree summer day. Is it cotton? I really love cotton dresses

    This is a really great look for you, Salazar! My friend on another blog, has a similar dress to yours.

  4. That is such a pretty dress. I’ve never had anything custom made before – how fun. I like the pinstripe as well – so very men’s wear inspired. Nice!
