A Year In Review: Favorite SIA Challenges Of 2020

Welcome to the no man’s land that is the week between Christmas and New Year. As usual, I’m taking this time to look back at my year and show off some of my favorite things, starting with the Style Imitating Art challenges (since Monday is SIA day around here.)

First is my pick, inspired by Edgar Degas’s “Little 14-year-old Dancer“. Any challenge that brought me to the Mariinsky Theater in Saint Petersburg is OK by me:

Daenel has a lot of interesting inspirations this year, but one of my favorites is the embroidered cap:

I chose this one more because of the outfit – the dress is colorful and the silhouette is just my style – even if it doesn’t exactly match the inspiration, Odilon Redon’s “Bouquet Of Wild Flowers” picked by Kim:

Daenel’s pick of these 19th-century slippers forced me to stretch my creativity a bit, which was why it was one of my favorite challenges:

I really enjoyed Kim’s pick of Paul Gauguin’s “Garden Under Snow“, even if my outfit was unplanned:

The Woodpecker Tapestry by William Morris is also a favorite, because it allows me to wear this blazer:

Finally, it’s Charles Bell’s “Gumball II” – just pure fun:

We’ll be back on January 4th with a brand-new host and a brand-new challenge, so stay tuned!

    I always love your SIA outfits- the William Morris one is SO nice! I am gutted I didn’t take part in that- I had an outfit planned and then ran out of time to actually send something in!
    Your “Little 14-year-old Dancer“ was truly dedication!
