For this week’s SIA, inspired by the “Calyx” fabric designed by British artist Lucienne Day, I had to dig around for a bit. I do have prints in my closet, but they’re mostly “classic” ones like stripes, plaid, and floral, nothing that matches the graphic quality of this print. Then I remembered this dress – I mean, short of buying the fabric myself and making a garment out of it, this is the closest I can get, both in terms of the color scheme and the print. The original design has an olive green background, so I paired the dress with my green silk shirt (it was almost identical to the last time I wore this dress, but hey, when a formula works…) My brooch is a nod to the print as well. All in all, I’m quite pleased with how the outfit turned out, even if it took me a while to come up with it. Usually when something takes me a long time, I’ll end up overthinking it and the outfit would be overwrought, but this one is just right.

Oh my goodness, this dress is perfect for the print, Salazar! I love the green top layered over it and that brooch is really wonderful! I am also really digging your shoes. This outfit is really fabulous!
The print of you dress is so great for this – nice!
