Jazz Stories

What’s this? What’s this? (I know the song is more appropriate for Christmas, but it fits here too.) Am I wearing a… blazer? Yes! We just had some rain over the weekend and the temperature has dropped enough for me to actually wear some layers. If it wasn’t for that, I would probably have to wear my reliable red printed dress again for this week’s SIA, inspired by Faith Ringgold’s “Jazz Stories”. However, thanks to the temperature drop, I decided to reflect the colors and patterns in the piece with my red blazer (check out the pattern of the lining), yellow skirt, and navy loafers. A brooch shaped by a musical instrument would’ve been perfect, but I don’t have any – I can’t play any musical instrument and figure it would be presumptuous for me to wear one. So I wore this lady-shaped brooch instead – it kind of looks like the lady in the painting anyway, so it’s not that far off.

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

    Oh wow, Salazar, that brooch is absolute perfection! And I love this outfits. These colors are so good together! I can’t play any instruments either but I totally hijacked my son’s guitar as a prop!


  2. It is always amazing to me when someone can pull the three primary colors together and gook amazing. You’ve done it and it is perfect for this painting. I didn’t even think about musical instruments but somehow I just don’t think a piano quite fitted into the picture. I’m glad it’s cooling off a bit there.

    You put your outfit together quite well! I’m really loving that blazer! It matches wonderfully with the red in the piece.
