So here’s my outfit for this week’s SIA, as inspired by Susanna Bauer’s crocheted leaves. It’s pretty self-explanatory – my pants and shoes are to mimic the brown shades of the leaves, and my top is to mimic the crocheting. I have a confession to make, though – this was from a couple of weeks ago, when the weather was still pretty warm (the weather has been flip-flopping these past two weeks between crisp and sunny and miserable and rainy.) I’d had an idea of featuring this artwork in SIA, so I just put the outfit together before announcing the inspiration. Is that cheating? I don’t think so, because I still put together the outfit with the artwork in mind, right? I just planned way, way ahead. Besides, is there even such a thing as “cheating” in SIA?

Anyway, if you still haven’t sent me your outfit yet, you have until tomorrow. And don’t forget to check back on Wednesday to see other outfits inspired by these leaves!

  1. What a pretty top to use for this theme, it looks so close to the artwork crochet. No, I don’t think there’s cheating!

  2. That blouse is stunning. I can’t get over how close the embroidery on the blouse is to that on the leaf.

  3. Perfection…once again. Love the tobacco brown of the leaves and your pants. But that blouse! Stunning…so delicate, the handwork is lovely, feminine and so similar to Susana Bauer’s crochet. I tried to read if the leaves on her art are real…cannot imagine how they could be…but didn’t see anywhere that they aren’t.
