This is my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by Salvador Dali’s “The Hallucinogenic Toreador“. It’s pretty tame, but it’s the best I could do with what I have, and besides, I don’t want to go all-out just to fit the painting and forget my own personal style. Anyway, two things in the painting that stand out to me are one, the dots – there are polka dots and some sort of insect (flies?) that form a series of dots throughout and the painting, and two, the arches around the bullfighting ring. I put those together and came up with this shirt – the cutout embroideries are to reflect both the dots and the arches. I paired it with this plaid skirt, which has some of the colors in the painting, and my cameo brooch is a nod to the Venus de Milo, another stand-out motif in the painting. So all in all, not a bad outfit (if I do say so myself) and it does reflect the inspiration too.
You can definitely see the inspiration from the painting in this adorable outfit! I love your plaid skirt and your shoes and your beautiful cameo. I have a soft spot for cameos! I really like that you stayed true to your style. The result is a really wonderful outfit!
