Style Imitating Art: Picasso in shades of blue

I wasn’t going to join in with Style Imitating Art this time round, but then I got dressed this morning and realised my outfit was perfect for the piece. The inspiration this time was a Picasso painting entitled Two Acrobats With a Dog.

The quest to take a decent photo of myself without a tripod continues.

As you can see, the main reason I thought this outfit represented the art was the colours – this dress is different shades of blue. I was also wearing blue shoes, which are cut off in the photo above so here’s a closer look:

Finally, I took a close-up photo of my necklace for you. It’s more purple (and other colours) than blue but I thought the pattern on the pointy bits was similar to the taller acrobat’s clothing. There are also pink, golden and white squares that sort of match the colours in the painting.

This time I can even tell you where most of my outfit came from! Dress: H&M two or three years ago, shoes: Deichmann last month. Leggings… I don’t remember. Primark maybe? The necklace was a birthday present from my grandma a few years ago and I’m not sure where she got it from.

How would you dress to represent this piece? And what do you think of my effort?

If you want to join in, you have until tomorrow (19 June) to submit a photo to Salazar at 14 Shades of Grey (you can find the e-mail address on her blog).

  1. Yessss, this is great! The colours of the dress are super (and the way you are wearing leggings under it- like the boy!) . The necklace colours very much remind me of the Harlequin’s costume!!! Jolly good effort!
