Here’s my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by Patty Carroll’s photo, “Booky“. It’s an outfit built around accessories. I knew I’d wear this book necklace (duh) and this eyeglass brooch (I count at least three pairs of glasses in the photo), but the rest of the outfit took some thinking. At first, I wanted to try some pattern mixing to mimic the chaos of the photo, but after some experiments, I decided on this dress instead – the color is similar to the curtains, and the print is a nod to all the prints (the wallpaper, the carpet, the woman’s dress, the lampshades). Still, I couldn’t give up the pattern mixing altogether, so I brought out my Kindle as an accessory as well. Besides, most of my books are on Kindle these days, so it seems natural to feature it in a book-themed outfit.

Don’t forget to stop by Terri’s blog on Wednesday to see other outfits inspired by this photo!
