Portrait Mode

Here’s my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by Ingres’s “Portrait of Comtess d’Haussonville“. I got this dress from an end-of-summer sale, and immediately knew it would be perfect for this challenge with its different shades of grayish blue. I added my brooch to mimic the gold bracelet and ring the Countess is wearing as well as the mirror frame, and my shoes are perfect to mimic the red velvet bow on her hair. I even tried posing like her but I ended up looking silly, so here are some normally-posed photos instead 😛

Don’t forget to send me your outfit, and check back on Wednesday to see other looks inspired by this wonderful portrait!

    Hi Salazar! You look PERFECT for this look! I MUST remember to put together an outfit tomorrow! I had an idea, just need to wear and photograph it.
    I love your new dress-the colour us spot on and the fabric looks light and comfortable. The brooch and red shoes are indeed a fine addition.

    This is probably one of my favorite interpretations ever. That dress is terrific – SIA or not! Pockets, soft fabric, dusty blue color and great fit! LOVE!! Then I can hardly wait to see your brooch each time – you are the queen of brooches, and they are such an interesting way to make a statement, to add some pizzazz. And finally that pop of red. Genius. The gold in the brooch, the red in the shoes really represent those little details in the painting. Well done, my friend!!

  4. This whole outfit is so perfect, and such a good interpretation of the challenge! I especially LOVE those shoes!
