Hello friends! Time for another style imitating art post – the first of 2019.
The inspiration this time was the Van Gogh Painting “Still Life With Irises”:
I love the blue of the flowers! Unfortunately the only item of clothing I could think of with roughly that shade of blue is a summer dress and I didn’t fancy freezing. So here’s what I chose instead:
The flowers are purple rather than blue but I thought the flowers plus green leaves were a decent match for the painting. The skirt is the wrong shade, really, but it kind of represents the beige-y surface the vase is standing on. Not the best interpretation, but I quite like it.
My grandma gave me the top last year and it’s actually the first time I’ve worn it. The label says it’s from Dorothy Perkins. The skirt is old and I don’t remember where it came from. I was also wearing purple tights, which you obviously can’t see on those photo but actually the skirt is long enough that you can’t see them at all when I’m wearing shoes.
How would you interpret this painting? If you want to join in, you have until tomorrow (Tuesday, 15 January) to send a photo of your outfit to email@example.com. Flat lays are fine if you prefer not to show your face.
