Still Life

Here’s my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by “Still Life with Nuts, Candy, and Flowers” by Flemish artist Clara Peeters. I went with a looser interpretation than usual – my outfit was meant to evoke the overall classical feel of the painting and the richness of it, rather than the precise details. Still, I couldn’t ignore them altogether. My shirt is to reflect the confectionery, and at first, I was going to wear my other floral waistcoat, but in the end, I chose my William Morris waistcoat as both a nod to the flowers and the elaborate engraving/embossing on the cups and pots. Plus, it’s the perfect match to my skirt. I was debating between this skirt or my olive culottes, which matched the painting’s background better, and decided I liked the look of this skirt more, even though it wasn’t perfect for the painting.

  2. Oooh, I really like this waistcoat and skirt combination. The colors are so gorgeous and really reflect those deep reds in the painting. I think this is a brilliant interpretation of the work and really great outfit!


  3. To my eye, the rich red skirt is the glass of wine in the back turned upside down! The skirt + waistcoat combo is terrific.
