Here’s my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by Emperor Ham Nghi’s “Decline of the Day”. I’d originally wanted to have some homage to the artist in my outfit – after all, I picked the painting because of its history more than its artistic merits – but I couldn’t work out how to do it, so here’s a straightforward outfit instead. I built it around different shades of green and brown; the patterns on my sweater are a nod to the touches of lighter colors, blue and pink, in the painting, and the various textures of my sweater (knitted), blazer (wool), and pants (corduroy) are to reflect the textures of the painting as well.
If you haven’t sent me your outfit, you still have until tomorrow! And don’t forget to drop by on Wednesday to see how others interpret this painting.

Here’s my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by the Nebra sky disk. I originally bought this sweater (which is a knock-off of a Dior design) because it reminded me of the star spirits in Howl’s Moving Castle (you know, these creepy things), but then I noticed its similarity to the sky disk too, so of course I had to wear it for this challenge. I paired it with these green corduroy pants to mimic the green background of the disk. Sadly, I don’t have any gold shoes, so these brown boots would have to do, and finally, to maximize the celestial theme, I added a sun, moon, and stars brooch too.
