So, funny story about my entry for this round of Style Imitating Art… I had my outfit all picked out, put it in the suitcase when we went away for a night, then we promptly left the suitcase on the train. Doh! On the plus side, when we went to buy a few necessary bits we found out that the supermarket in Yverdon les Bains sells bamboo tooth brushes. I had been planning for a while to look into ordering one (our branch of the same supermarket does not have them) but never got around to it. Silver linings. And the suitcase has been found – we can pick it up tomorrow. But anyway, I digress… with my original outfit gone, I had to think of something else to wear. Here is the inspiration art, chosen by Danael.
It’s called Pocket Flask. I love the colours… so appropriate for autumn! And the patterns on the bottles are so interesting. Since we went out for the day today, I got Jan to take a photo of me with all the autumn colours of nature in the background, also so fitting for the inspiration. Here’s what I chose to wear:
This owl dress is by “Miss Style London”. I believe I bought it from DaWanda, which was the German version of Etsy (but stopped hosting shops recently and is now just a craft site). I’ve had it for about 8 years though so I’m not 100% sure! I thought the colours were really fitting and the patterns at the bottom and on the owls were a good imitation of the patterns on the the flasks. I’m also wearing green tights (not visible, but never mind) and a brown cardigan from Primark (purchased before our move to Basel, so three years ago at least). Some close ups of the owls:
I added some earrings to the outfit, both because the colours fit and they’re kind of glassy looking (although I think they’re actually plastic), which seemed appropriate. Below a photo of me that actually shows one of them plus one of just the earrings. They came from a clothes shop… no idea which one.
It’s already pretty late, but if you fancy joining in and can cobble together an outfit at short notice please do, and then send it to Danael at firstname.lastname@example.org by tomorrow (Tuesday 6 November). A round up will go up on her blog on Wednesday and it’s well worth checking out what outfits other people came up with inspired by the art. There are always some amazing contributions!

I think I have those exact earrings but in a light purple/clear combination!
I feel like I’ve seen the same ones in green as well. Pretty sure they just change them to match the latest “in” colours 😂
Such a small world. I’ve been following Danael on IG for some time and noticed her style imitating art posts before and here you are posting about it yourself and linking to her. Love it!
I found the link up through Kezzie. The blogging world is so small 🙂
How annoying that you left your suitcase on the train, but what a relief that it has not been lost. The autumn colours of your outfit are ideal for the challenge. 🙂
We have the suitcase back now 🙂 Such a silly thing to do!
What a fun outfit, and it definitely suits the art with being very Autumn colors. I love the little owls. 🙂
I love the owls too 🙂 I have too many owl dresses!
Oh no! I hope you were able to get your clothes back! I know how flustered I get when my suitcases are delayed on a plane. Your dress is so very cute. And, gosh, I wish we could see your green tights. I’m such a fan of colored/print tights.
We picked up the suitcase yesterday 🙂
I didn’t realise until afterwards that Jan had missed off my tights. You can see them a tiny bit on the close-up photo of the red owl.
I have a similar pair of earrings with teal beads! Think they were Accessorize! I love your Owl dress and think it works perfectly for this inspiration plus the earrings!!! Can we see the outfit you originally planned too- when it comes back!!?!?!
I bought mine in Karlsruhe so definitely not Accessorize since there isn’t one there. I feel like all shops have similar ones though.
We have the suitcase back now so I’ll see what I can do 🙂
