Style imitating art: when art and books collide

To be honest I most likely would have forgotten to check the inspiration for SIA again this week but Kezzie sent me the link saying I had to join in and when I checked it out I agreed.

Here’s the chosen piece of art:

It’s called Booky and is part of a series called Domestic Demise. The first thing I noticed (other than books!) was that there’s a lot of red in this picture. Then my eye was drawn to all the flowers so I decided to go with a dress featuring flowers. Here’s my outfit:

It seemed appropriate to pose in front of the bookcases – although mine aren’t quite as chaotic (yet).

The dress is from H&M probably 4 years ago, shoes from Primark when I lived in Germany so they’re at least 7 or 8 years old. I’m also wearing earrings my dad’s girlfriend gave me years ago and a book necklace that was a gift from my sister. Here’s a close up of the necklace:

Jan acted as my photographer and he asked me whether I had a book with flowers on the cover, which resulted in this fun shot:

I think it’s actually some kind of bag that’s covering her face in the painting but this works just as well.

I’m a bit late with posting this so you probably won’t have time to submit an outfit but if you check Terri’s blog on Wednesday you can see what other people have made of the inspiration.
