Tree Of Life

For this week’s SIA, inspired by Keith Haring’s “Tree of Life“, I knew I had to go a bit interpretative because I have nothing in my wardrobe that can reflect the painting accurately. I have nothing in those colors, even. After digging around, I came up with this William Morris waistcoat – the leaf print is certainly reminiscent of the “tree” in the painting, and the colors are quite similar as well, only in more muted tones. I layered it with my maroon dress, which miraculously matches the background of the waistcoat. It’s still too warm for layering, but the waistcoat is light enough, so it wasn’t too bad early in the morning. Basically, I took a Pop Art painting and turned it into an Arts and Crafts outfit instead. But hey, that’s the fun of SIA, right?

Don’t forget to drop by Shelbee’s blog on Wednesday to see other outfits inspired by this painting!

  1. I love your look and it is very much you. I feel that your dress color is the same tone of mauve pink but just a couple of shades darker. And a William Morris print work for me every time! After your William Morris work last year, I found a William Morris printed blouse for myself!

  2. Actually William Morris is more my thing than Keith Haring is so I adore the Arts and Crafts direction your interpretation took! I’m also loving that early fall vibe in this outfit with the burgundy dress.

    I love this interpretation of the art, Salazar! You stayed true to your own personal style and created a really marvelous outfit! I love the shirtdress and brogue combination. Your waistcoat is like the delicious icing on a scrumptious cake! Well done! I am looking forward to your next art pick!
